Need a new printer

Could you please tell me what printer would be compatable with my 7 year old dell comp. I know I need a new comp but can not afford it at this time and my printer just died on me yesterday. We have (had) an EPSON Stylus C60. Also what is the difference between laser and inkjet? Sorry for my ignorance...

I use the same printer kind of printer for my PC which is older than 8 years... I believe its ink jet... yeah since I have to buy a refill cartage ever who knows when. My printer is really old I would give its name, but I'm not near home to look at it. Either way I find the EPSON printers are good for older computers especially the older models.

Laser printers employ a xerographic printing process but differ from analog photocopiers in that the image is produced by the direct scanning of a laser beam across the printer's photo receptor.

Ink jet use ink to print images... obviously. No real in depth on it since its plain and simple.

It could all be down to your motherboard clock/jumper settings. You need to check out your motherboard user manual.

If you don't have one, go to your motherboard manufacturer's website, follow links for support and downloads. You should be able to get a .pdf copy there.

Also bear in mind the type of processor chip you have, If I remember correctly, these chips can have either the Northwood or the Prescott processor chip. Some motherboards are compatible with only the one,

Is there any other OS that is compatible with windows 7? All of my software is for my Vista. Is ther anything else I can do to make my OS more compatible?

Programs released before the market release of Windows 7 are most likely XP and Vista compatible only. What I recommend is to check the websites of those programs for available updates or upgrades. Newer versions of software are Windows 7 compatible.

I have a medion computer approx 10years old and am hoping to load it with windows 7 but on trying to load this the computer says the proccesor needs changing can you tell me if this should be possible...

There is no way to run windows 7 on this computer. The hardware is just too old.

On the other hand, if you're used to this one, you can buy a new one with Windows 7 preloaded for under $400 (even at WalMart!) and it will work much better than the ten year old computer. Since Windows 7 costs about $100 just by itself, you can move up for only about $300 overall.

How to ID CPU compatibility?

You should try to find the manual of your mobo. Search the manufagurer website for the same model number. It usually lists all compatible CPUs.

Socket 478 is for Intel Pentium 4, Intel Celeron, Celeron D and Pentium 4 Extreme. But that doesn't mean your motherboard supports them all. You should still check the manual.

Processor compatability

Processors have a matched frequency rating with the motherboard and memory. So, when replacing or upgrading the processor, the new processor will need to have the same frequency as the old one. If the processors use the same type of memory, ie... PC2100, then ther are most likely compatable, and the use of a processor that was made for or from the same make of laptop is always a good idea. Some processors are designed specifically for use in certain manufacturer's system configurations. For example; say you have a Dell Latitude C840 with a 1.8ghz processor and you want to upgrade to a 2.2ghz processor from a Dell Inpiron 8600, this will work. Both of these machines use the PC2100 memory and have a matched frequency rating of 266mhz, and the processors are made for use in Dell machines. If you would like to tell me exactly what you're wanting to do, maybe I can recomend a processor for you. Let me know.

CPU test

Hello Trool,

The easiest and more affordable way is to get a hold of a computer that runs normal whose motherboard is compatible with the CPU in question. Swap CPUs, check for functionality and then you'll have your answer. Hope this helps. Let me know

Installing an AMD K6-2 processsor on a Compaq laptop

Either your setting is not correct or your new AMD CPU is not a compatible type. One thing very easy to verify is if it is compatible, it will seat very firmly. You may need to check the model and serial number to be sure you get the correct CPU for your old board.
