CPU upgrade for Compaq SR1220NX Desktop Computer


Hi
The specs for this machine state that it is a motherboard with
"Socket 478 for Intel P4 Williamette and Northwood processors
Supports Intel Pentium 4 processor up to 2.8 GHz
Supports Intel Celeron processor up to 3.06 GHz (Prescott based Celeron with 533MHz FSB)"
In other words, any CPU that is not socket 478 ( a fairly old socket now) will not even fit on the board. You do not mention your current CPU so you need to compare it with the spec above to see if you can improve it. It is an old machine/motherboard, so your money might be better going towards a motherboard or system box upgrade.
Cheers

Need to upgrade cpu for using multiple progams at on time, can cpu be upgraded on this older model compaq presario S0000 / 8000 series computer


As you have stated it's a Compaq Presario S0000/S8000 SERIES desktop computer.

One of the S0000/S8000 series.
Without knowing the exact model number I have no idea of what hardware is installed on the motherboard.

On the back of the computer tower, or up on the side, is a white Service Tag.
P/N = Product Number. This is the exact model number I need.

Also; Going to HP Support with the exact model number may not reveal the info I need, either.
They may not list the specifications, and therefore the installed hardware, for your computer.
There is an easy way around this, however.
Use CPU-Z from CPUID.com

What info is needed in order to know if the Processor can be upgraded:

A) Processor Socket: What processor socket is installed on the motherboard. This is what the Processor sits in.

Just two examples for Intel processors; Socket 478, and LGA 775 processor socket.

1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

With this style of processor socket, the processor socket has the socket holes, and the processor has the contact pins. (478 holes/478 pins)

2) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_775

With this style of processor socket, the socket has the pins, while the processor has contact pads.

There are other styles of Intel processor sockets. There are also AMD processors which can be used, and have many different processor sockets also.


B) What motherboard chipset is used.
Specifically, what Northbridge chip is used.

3) Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

For your motherboard the motherboard chipset is a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.

{So aptly named Northbridge, and Southbridge, for the relation of how they sit on the motherboard.
Looking at a motherboard as if it were a map, the Processor sits to the North.

The Northbridge chip sits close to the Processor.
The Southbridge chip sits to the 'South' on the motherboard }

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.
It handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.

4) Motherboard Diagram,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

Knowing what processor socket is used, and what Northbridge chip, we can accurately determine what processors are supported.

CPU-Z is a tiny, free program that without opening your computer, tells you what hardware is installed on your motherboard.
Tells you what processor socket, and Northbridge chip are used, for one.

5) This is information on CPU-Z. Shows you a screenshot of the user interface of CPU-Z,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU-Z

Left-click on the CPU-Z user interface to the upper right of the page, to enlarge it.
(Under the bold CPU-Z heading)

When CPU-Z opens it automatically opens to the CPU tab.
(Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short)

To the right of - Package - tells you what processor socket is used.
Clicking on the Mainboard tab tells you what motherboard chipset is used.

6) CPU-Z download page,

http://www.cpuid.com/downloads/cpu-z/1.56-setup-en.exe

Left-click on Download now! in the purple rectangular box.
A small window will come up on the right side -
Opening cpu-z_1.56-setup-en.exe

Left-click right on Save File
Another small window will come up on the left.
In the header at the top of this small window, tells you where the file will download to.

In the wording may be Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads.

Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen.

My Documents: Left-click on Start, then on My Documents

Downloads: Left-click on Start, then on My Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

When you see the file name DOUBLE-click right on it.
Follow the easy installation instructions.

Go back to your desktop screen. Double-click on the CPU-Z icon.
When CPU-Z has loaded, come back here in a Comment, and tell me;

1) In the CPU tab, what is stated to the right of - Package

2) Left-click on the Mainboard tab.

What is stated to right of;
A) Manufacturer
B) Model
C) Chipset
D) Southbridge

My external frequency is set wrong and should like to know what it is.Its an asus p4s8x-x hope you can help thank you


The Asus P4S8X-X has C.P.R.

CPU Parameter Recall

(Central Processing Unit, or Processor)

Restart the computer, and BIOS will set the CPU parameters back to the factory default settings.

Internal frequency rate times the multiplier = external frequency rate.

The Asus P4S8X-X uses Intel processors (Socket 478) that have either a 400Megahertz Front Side Bus, or a 533MHz FSB.

Since you did not state what socket 478 Intel processor you have installed, I cannot tell you what the external frequency rate is supposed to be.
(At maximum operating capacity)

Have you installed a different Processor?
Were you trying to overclock?
What led up to this?

Evo d510 small form factor with 1.79ghz processor what other size of processor can i put in


The Compaq Evo D510's motherboard has a Socket 478 processor socket, and uses an Intel 845G motherboard chipset.

This is information on the Socket 478 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

As you can see the processor socket has the holes, while the processor has the pins.
478 socket holes.

Only Intel processors that fit into a Socket 478 processor socket, can be used.
Intel Celeron or Pentium 4.

Motherboard Chipset:
The motherboard chipset consists of the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.
Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit.

The Northbridge chip handles the high-speed processes, while the Southbridge handles the low speed processes of a computer.

The Northbridge handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and any high speed graphics.

(AGP and PCI Express being high-speed graphics.
Any graphics adapter card inserted into a PCI slot, or Integrated Graphics {On-Board), is a slow speed process. Handled by the Southbridge chip)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

[CPU stands for Central Processing Unit, or for short - Processor)

This is information about the Intel 845G chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_Chipsets

Scroll down on the left until you come to -
845G
Read across.

The Nothrbridge chip is the Intel 82845G.
The Southbridge chip is the Intel ICH4.

As you can read looking across, and at the top of the chart, the 845G will support processors with;

1) Celeron, Celeron D, and Pentium 4 processors.

2) Up to a 533MHz FSB. (533MegaHertz Front Side Bus)

(Pentium 4 processors are better than Celeron.
The Celeron was designed as a budget processor.
'Celey's' generally have half of the L2 cache, that a comparable Pentium 4 has)

I felt listing this information in this manner, would help you can make an informed decision, as to what processors are compatible with the Evo D510 motherboard, instead of just stating, "Get this processor".

I will include a link of a website I found some time ago, that sells Pentium 4's with these parameters, at a very reasonable cost.

What do you need to look for in the motherboard specifications?

I suggest you start by going to HP.com/Support,

http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html

In the box to the right of -> product search: <- type your model name and model number.
Example: Pavilion 7955

This will take you to the main page for your computer. See if -> Product Specifications <- is listed.
Click on that. Now see if -> Motherboard Specifications <- is listed. Click on that.

Look to see what processor socket you have, what Northbridge chipset you have, and what the Maximum Total Amount of ram memory is for the motherboard.

1.Processor: Intel Quad Core Q9650
Your motherboard has to have the LGA 775 processor socket. Also know as Socket T.
A.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_T
This processor socket has the pins in it, and the processor has the socket holes. The older Socket 478, had the socket holes, while the processor had the pins.

You need a Northbridge chip that will support the Q9650.
IF, your motherboard has an LGA 775 processor socket, I'm willing to bet your Northbridge chip is an Intel one.
This is a list of Intel chipsets. I have saved the link, to come up on Intel chipsets, that are for the Intel Core2. Match your HP motherboard's, Northbridge chipset, up with the one's listed on this chart. Look down the left column under the heading -> Chipset. After you find your chipset name, look across to the right. See if this chipset supports -> Core 2 Quad.

Example: The 945GC chipset supports Pentium 4, Pentium D, Celeron, Core 2 Duo, and the Intel Atom processor. Does not support Core 2 Quad.
The P965 supports (Uses) Core 2 Duo, and Core 2 Quad.

You may find that a BIOS Upgrade is needed also.

Another way to find out your motherboard information, is to download (Free) CPU-Z from CPUID.com,
Info on Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU-Z
Homepage:
http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php

After you have downloaded this tiny, little program, and it is open, click on the Mainboard tab.
This shows a brief video on using CPU-Z,

Motherboard ID Motherboard Name Compaq Evo


as long as it is a socket 478 processor which narrows it down to P4 or celeron ( P4 being better and faster ) it should be fine.
Obviously it will state what processors it can handle in the computer manual so if you find the manual it should state in there.
I dont think it will handle more then a 3ghz P4
