Upgrade processor on ALI 1541 motherboard

Hi,

I have an IBM Aptiva 2153 E2U with an AMD k-6 2 333Mhz processor. I want to upgrade to AMD K-6 500 Mhz. I have plugged in the new processor but I think I have configured it wrong. When the system boots up it registers as 333 Mhz.

Please advise.

May need to be configured in the Bios, but also some older boards had processor adjustments on the motherboard, either with a block of little white dip switches, or with jumpers that you remove or replace depending on the processor. Some times the settings for the processor are printed on the board too. Are you sure the motherboard can take a processor up to 500MHz.
If you don't have the manual for the motherboard have a look on it for the make and model number and search google for it. If it is available it will probably be an Adobe pdf file so make sure you have Adobe's Acrobat reader.

Re upgrade, memory, speed etc?


Upgrade the RAM/Memory? Yes to the maximum *********** Bord will support.

Upgrade the Processor for more speed on a 9 year old Mother Board? Probably not worth the trouble.

CPU upgrade


Your motherboard has a good support for various Processors. If you want to go for the latest then you can go for Palamino core Athlon 4.Its compatible all the KV7 series boards but all you have to check is "Till WHAT clock speed can your board support?" .

Sai.

According to their website, the board can take:

AMD Athlon XP (Throughbred up to XP2600+)
AMD Athlon (including Thunderbird)
AMD Duron (including Morgan)


You can then overclock the processor with a BIOS upgrade available at http://www.ocworkbench.com/2002/ecs/k7s5abios/cheepobios.htm.

It has one 4X AGP slot so it can take any AGP video card, assuming the card is backwards compatible (8x -> 4x).

Diagram of motherboard wanted


Hi,

Based on your post/description, you would want to do 2 things: 1) upgrade a Cyrix and 2) install LAN capability.

#2 is easier, all you need is a PCI LAN card with the right drivers for your operating system and you should be set to go;

#1 is trickier...
If you are referring to a Cyrix MediaGXm motherboard, at most that you can go up to is a 300 MHz CPU and hopefully a max of 256Mb of memory depending on the motherboard version.

If you are referring to a Cyrix MII-433 processor which ran at 300 MHz (100x3), hopefully you can try replacing the processor with an AMD K6-2 500 or higher, that is of course assuming that the motherboard is compatible (FSB, VCore voltage, multiplier). You should take into consideration that other than the MII-433. most Cyrix CPUs run at 83 MHz bus in a (Super) Socket 7 motherboard and technically is extremely overclocked (PCI bus running at 41.5 MHz). You should meticulously check the various jumper settings to accommodate your upgrade CPU. For stability, perhaps you should choose an Intel 266 with MMX, for speed AMD K6-2 500. This is of course if you can still locate such processors and appropriate memories.

Good luck and kind regards.
