Make sure all the drivers for the new processor are installed.

Also, does the BIOS show the new CPU?

I have put in an intel 3.02 pentium 4 processor replacing my 3.00ghz processor and it wont boot up


Hi,

Check and make sure the processor is seated properly in the socket.
If it still gives you this problem your processor is most likely faulty.
The difference in noticeable speed between a 3.00Ghz and a 3.02Ghz CPU is not really worth all the fuss and you'll be better off putting back your 3Ghz CPU.

Best wishes,

I bought a pentium 4 3.0 ghz 800 mhz & my


The motherboard chipset of the Dell Dimension 2300 Desktop PC, will not support a processor with an 800MHz Front Side Bus frequency rate.

Only Intel Pentium 4's that use a Socket 478, 1.75 Volts, and a maximum of a 400MHz FSB.

The Intel Pentium 4 HT 3.0GHz processor has an 800MHz FSB, (As you have already stated), and uses 1.475 to 1.55 Volts.

The motherboard chipset for that Dell Dimension 2300, is an Intel 845GL.

This list on Wikipedia, shows you parameters the Intel 845GL chipset supports,

Not a good outcome, sorry. Just stating the facts.

I put in a 512MB PC-133 memory stick and all my pc does is beep 3 times when I turn it on


1). Changed ram is of high frequency so its not supporting ur motherboard, change the ram and see to its frequency (eg. pc100, pc133)
2). Or you might have wrongly attached the ram to motherboard, so ram slot might have burnt.

Help Upgrading Processor


You'll find the information you seek at both the processor company and the motherboard company. As for remounting it in a Compaq case you may run into some issues of the On/Off Switch, power lead, reset button ect...matching up. You might be suprised at how inexpensive a new computer case is. I've seen some as low as $25. Your power supply can be removed and it will fit in your new case. You may just have a easier go of it. Good luck...please leave a rating, thank you kindly

Motherboard replacement


Yes, but will work only if you put a right cpu processor (FSB).
Because you have different FSB (533in one and 400 in another)
Both are socket 478, same AGP slot 4x

Dell Dimensions 2300 hard drive replcement


Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 750GB Hard Drive
goes for about 180 bucks and it a IDE PATA Drive I do belive since your dimensions 2300 motherboard 3T237 is only IDE and does not have SATA

your motherboard can also handle 1 gig of ram so if you havent maxed out your motherboard yet I would highly suggest it. Ram for it wont cost you much either.

I would add the newer drive as a secoundary drive since I am sure that your operating system is pre loaded.

or you can also add external drives to your system as well for more storage as well and they are starting to come down in price as well. you have options it all depends what ya wanna do with it.
