    Thank you Hollyecho

    I'd say that explains it. I better be happy with what I have and just upgrade the memory. Agree?

This depends on your motherboard and what it is capable of. If you are changing out the CPU - you would be wise to upgrade the motherboard also.

Are you certain it's the CPU not being recognized ? Check the CPU for bent pins, and be certain to ensure you have put it in in the correct orientation. Always use static protective precautions.

Depends on the socket type.. Socket 423 and 478 do not support core duo or quad core processor types. However, if you have LGA 775 (aka socket T) your motherboard will support the following:
Intel Pentium 4 (2.60 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Pentium Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)

Can I upgrade my 2.8 Ghz CPU with the 3 2 GHz dual core 775socket BX80571E5800 CPU into my N1996 acer 671t desktop motherboard, and can I upgrade my 553/ddr2 ram with a 2nd 2G ddr2 800/ RAM (max 4x 1 G...


as long as the socket is exactly the same as the processor you are trying to upgrade to you should be good. As far as memory goes you can use a faster ddr2 chip but you have to find out what the maximum capacity is on each slot. Most newer computers can support 1gb+ per slot. Always make sure you install ram in pairs and in the proper slots.

Remove the BIOS recovery jumper near the battery on the motherboard and attempt to boot. If the system displays a startup screen, replace the jumper on pins 1 and 2 (pin 1 will have an arrow by it) and configure your bios appropriately.

Cpu upgrade dell dimension 5100


Hi, according to the Dell website you have a LGA775 socket on your motherboard. Therefore, you can only buy processors that fit into this socket. Here is a list of some offered by Intel that will work: Celeron D 325 2.53 GHz Celeron D 330 2.66 GHz Celeron D 335 2.8 GHz Celeron D 340 2.93 GHz Pentium4 520 2.8 GHz Pentium4 530 3.0 GHz Pentium4 540 3.2GHz Pentium4 550 3.4 GHz Pentium4 560 3.6 GHz Pentium4 570 3.8 GHz The processors that won't work are the ones that are not compatible with this socket. Everytime you look up a cpu it will tell you which socket it is designed for. To buy a cpu you will need to decide: The brand you want. The speed of the cpu that you want. Extras i.e. Hyperthreading, etc. How much you are willing to pay for it. Then you can narrow your search as you stick within your limits. Let me know if you have more questions. Good Luck
