Im wondering if I can put th processor from my 518 in my GX280


With the flood of information you posted I can barely sift through it

Do I assume you are referring to a Dell Inspiron 518 desktop computer's, processor; to go into a Dell Optiplex GX280 desktop computer?

You know Dell is a computer company that was founded on the principle, to give the customer what they wanted; and to be able to choose from several options.

That being stated, in reality I have no idea of what Processor is in YOUR Dell Inspiron 518, or Optiplex GX280.

However, if I am to assume the specs (Specifications), shown in the following link to be true; for Your computer, then the answer is NO,

http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/dell-inspiron-518/4505-3118_7-33186145.html

States an Intel Quad Core Q6600 processor.
(Operates at a maximum frequency rate {'Speed'} of 2.4GigaHertz.
2.4GHz )

Now let's look at the Dell Optiplex GX280 specifications,

http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/dell-optiplex-gx280/4507-3118_7-30998912.html

Both the Inspiron 518, and the Optiplex GX280 use an LGA 775 processor socket, on the motherboard.

This is good because both the Intel Quad Core Q6600, and the Intel Pentium 4, model 540; use the LGA 775 processor socket,

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

What is Not good, is the motherboard chipset used on the Optiplex GX280, will Not support a dual core processor; much less a quad core processor.

The motherboard chipset for the Optiplex GX280 is an Intel 915G,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4.2FPentium_D.2FPentium_EE_chipsets

The Intel 915G chipset supports Single Core processors -> ONLY.
Intel Pentium 4, or Intel Celeron D.

Front Side Bus (FSB) support is either 533MegaHertz, or 800MHz.

The Intel Celeron D is NOT a dual core processor,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Celeron#Prescott-256

"The Intel Celeron D processor works with the Intel 845 and 865 chipset families.

The D suffix actually has no official designation, and does not indicate that these models are dual-core.

It is used simply to distinguish this line of Celeron from the previous, lower performing Northwood and Willamette series, and also from the mobile series, the Celeron M (which also uses 3xx model numbers).
Unlike the Pentium D the Celeron D is NOT a dual core processor."

The Inspiron 518 has an Intel G33 motherboard chipset,

http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/dell-inspiron-518/4507-3118_7-33186145.html

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

Scroll down to G33 in the left column.
Read across, and look at the headings above.

Here we see the Intel G33 motherboard chipset, supports dual core, and quad core processors.
Intel Pentium Dual Core, Intel Core 2 Duo, and Intel Core 2 Quad.

Front Side Bus (FSB) support is for processors, that have either an 800MegaHertz FSB, or 1066MHz FSB, or 1333MHz FSB.

Short answer?

If it is a dual core, or quad core Intel processor, the answer is NO.

Do you know how to find out what processor is in the Inspiron 518, and the Optiplex GX280?

1) Are the computers working, and internet ready?

No?

2) Do you know about Anti-Static Procedures, and how to read the sSpec number on the processor?

Can i make a dual core run like a quad core, or add cores with out changing mother board?


You may be able to install a quad core processor on your motherboard, will need the model to check.
You can't make new cores out of nothing though.

Q9550 With Acer EQ35M MOBO


It is very likely that you simply do not have the right BIOS setup for the new processor. You will likely have to flash all your bios to get the new processor to both be recognized and to be able to recognize components on the motherboard. That is quite a jump in technology and it may be that the motherboard simply will not support the new processor period. In that case, be VERY careful buying your new board and make sure it specifically supports your processor. Sorry I could not be more help!

Fiteed new quad core CPU and 4gb of Ram, when started up getting no signal detected on the monitor. Can anyone help?


Let's back up a second.

A) What HP model is it? (P/N. Product Number. Back of desktop computer tower)
B) What model number of Intel quad core is it?
C) What are the manufacturer ID number/letters on the ram memory module/s?

I need to know what Northbridge chip is used on the motherboard, to know if it will support the particular Intel quad core you're trying to use.
This I can hopefully obtain from HP Support, by looking at the specifications for the motherboard.

(This technology does not apply to motherboards that support the Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 processors)

The Northbridge chip is part of the motherboard chipset.
So aptly named, because on a desktop computer motherboard it sits to the 'North', for one.
(Under the Processor)

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

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

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

AGP and PCI-Express are high-speed graphics technology.
A graphics card plugged into a PCI slot, and Integrated Graphics, is Not high-speed graphics.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of the computer.

Motherboard Diagram;

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

List of Intel Chipsets, and more specifically the one's that can handle Intel quad core processors,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

Secondly;
Make sure the Ram Memory you installed is Compatible.
If the motherboard supports 4GB of ram, make sure it is in the correct ram slots if using two sticks of ram, or four sticks.

There HAS to be a ram memory module ('Stick') in Slot 1. (DIMM 1)
EACH ram memory slot has a Maximum Amount.

For example if there are 4 ram slots, and the Maximum Total Amount of ram memory is 4GB, each ram slot may have a maximum of 1GB.
It may, or may not be that you can use Slot 1 and Slot 2, and use two 2GB sticks.

Third:
Always go slow when upgrading.
Install the Processor first, boot the computer up, see how it works.

THEN shut the computer down, unplug from power, observe Anti-Static Precautions, and install 2GB of ram memory.

Works?
Install the other 2GB.
BIOS has to recognize the changes.

Fourth:
Are you sure your Power Supply is adequate to support the quad core, and the added ram memory?

I am going to buy a HP desktop. I want to install a Q9650 and 8gb of mem. and 750gb to 1tb HD. 8600Gt - 512 mb graphics. I will want to use it for television viewing and surfing, as it will be connected to...


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,

Lookin to upgrade from dual core 4400 2.30ghz to higher what would be best?


I am taking it that since you had a dual core 4400+, your using a AM2 motherboard..
Bout the best you could do with that board is find another dual core, perhaps an AMD FX70 or FX62. Unfortunately AMD is not keeping up with intel , they sorta failed with the quad core.
If your smart, you'll save till you get enough to jump a couple levels and replace the ram, cpu and motherboard.
