Dell Dimension 8200 Processor

I have replaced my old Pentium 4 1.8g processor with a new Pentium 4 2.26g processor but the computer sill is running at the 1.7 speed. The bios is locked so you can not change the FSB or clocking. PLEASE HELP!

Hi, i also hav a dimensions 8200 which i recently uprgaded to a 2.8gh, but i discovered there were two versions of this system one which supports a 400FSB and the other 533FSB, these can determine the speed of ur cpu. Like you, I havent been able to unlock my clock speeds in the bios but i think you should be able to get more from ur new cpu by updating ur bios version to A09. check the dell site for more info on how to do this.

I have a dimension 2400. the current processor is a pentium 4 2.2 can i swap the processor with a intel core duo ??


After checking the specs of this here : http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim2400/en/sm_en/specs.htm

i can confirm that a intel core duo would not be supported without changing the motherboard, and probably the memory too.

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,

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

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

Can dell dimension 5100 run windows vista? Does it have a dual core processor?


Your computer can handle it hardware wise, the issue your going to run into is you need to find the vista version of your hardware drivers since the Dell website doesn't have vista drivers for your computer.

Best motherboard that will fit the case of my Dell 8200 PC. I want more ram and maybe upgrade the processor.


The best MB for that chassis that will fit without any Modification is a Dimension 8400/PWS370 Dell Motherboard. The chassis power button/USB connection is a proprietary Dell connector and using any 3rd party MB will require modification and the wiring is almost impossible to find for that control board.

For just about the same cost (MB, Processor, Heatsink/Fan and RAM) you can buy a New Vostro 220 with a Core 2 Duo processor w/3GB RAM and a 320 GB HDD and it is under warranty

Processor


First, what kind of upgrade do you expect to do? Many motherboards will not accept a different processor. That being said, you can use a small flat tipped screwdriver between the heat sink and processor. There isn't much room, but very gentle prying all around should do it. You may heat it up a bit with a blow dryer to soften the heat sink compound that hardens with age. You can't harm it with the temperature of the air from a hair dryer.

Should I get a new cpu for dell dimension 3000?


HII MARLBOROMANZ ,
YEAH THE PROCESSOR IS BIT SLOW FOR GAMES TO RUN PROPERLY.

I WOULD SUGGEST U TO BUY MOTHERBOARD THATS INTEL 965G AND CORE2DUO PROCESSOR.

U DONT NEED TO UPFRADE THE RAM AND VIDEO CARD U CAN USE THEM IN NEWLY UPGRADED MOTHERBOAD AND PROCESSOR.

I AM SURE U WILL ENJOY GAMES IF U UPGRADE ONLY OTHERBOARD AND PROCESSOR.REST ALL IS FINE.

New processor needed


Hi, For Dimension 3000 system here are your options. Pentium IV 3.2 GHz 533 / 800 MHz FSB Pentium IV 3.0 GHZ 533 / 800 MHz FSB Pentium IV 2.8 GHz 533 / 800 MHz FSB but what i'm worried about is the socket where the process goes into. for thermal issues it is expected for the socket to CHIP CREEP. Chip creep refers to the problem of chips that, over time, would work their way out of the socket. Chip creep occurred due to thermal expansion; the contracting and expanding during system heat up and cool down. you might end up replacing the mobo as well.
