Most of the newer processors use a different socket.

The Socket 939 chips go up to an Athlon 64 X2 4400+.

However: keep in mind that your computer's bios may not be setup to use newer CPU's. The only way to tell is to check compaq's web site for updates or just to buy a CPU and try it.

Good luck!

It is not detecting the HDD because the windows install does not have the necessary drivers. On the windwos install you must press F6 or F2 I don't remember which one but it prompts you for them to load external drivers fro SCSI or other type of drives, you must download the right drivers for the type of HDD the server has probably fromt eh IBM support website, put them in a floppy and load them from the floppy into the windows install so it recognizes the drives..

IBM IntelliStation zPro came with different CPU chips through 1997 to 2006. Depending on which year or type your machine is will determine if you can upgrade to Windows8.

The chips used were

IntelliStation Z Pro

Type 6899 (March 1997 to ??)

Type 6865 (October 1998 to April 2000)
Type 6866 (January 2000 to March 2002)
Type 6894 (May 2001 to June 2002)
Type 6221 (November 2002 to February 2005)
  • Dual Intel Xeon at 2.4, 2.67, 2.8 or 3.2 GHz
Type 6223 (August 2004 to March 2007)
  • Dual Intel Xeon with Intel 64 (formerly EM64T) at 3.0, 3.2, 3.4, 3.6 or 3.8 GHz
Type 9228 (June 2006)
  • Dual Intel Xeon Model 5130, 5140, 5150 or 5160
Windows 8 If you want to run Windows 8 on your PC, here's what it takes:
  • Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with support for PAE, NX, and SSE2 (more info)
  • RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
  • Hard disk space: 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  • Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver
As you have Type 6223 which a Xeon faster than 1GHz it should work with Windows 8 but not all Xeon processors are compatible depending on which one you have. See this Microsoft site after you check your Xeon chip family on the motherboard or through the Windows system command. Search for xeon.

CAN I INSTALL XEON 5540 WITH LGA1366 MOTHERBOAR


NOT ON JUST ANY MOTHERBOARD, that's a quad core, the mother board has to have quad core clocking. You need a server board. All the desktop boards are only dual core clocking.

Single core 2.8ghz xeon to quad core cpu


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xeon#Prestonia

"In 2002 Intel released a 130nm version of Xeon branded CPU, codenamed "Prestonia". It supported Intel's new Hyper-Threading technology, and had 512KB L2 cache. This was based on the "Northwood" Pentium 4 core."

Meaning it is a Single-Core processor.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Xeon_microprocessors#.22Prestonia.22_.28130_nm.29

Scroll down.

400MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (400MHz FSB)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xeon#7300-series_.22Tigerton.22

"The 7300 series, codenamed Tigerton (product code 80565) is a four socket (packaged on Socket 604) and more capable ->
QUAD-CORE processor.................."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Xeon_microprocessors#.22Tigerton.22_.2865_nm.29

1066MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (1066MHz FSB)

The motherboard uses the Intel E7505 motherboard chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Xeon_chipsets#NetBurst-based_Xeon_chipsets

Note the - Processor FSB supported -

533MegaHertz

ONLY supports Single-Core processors, too.

The answer is No

Can i put dual core processors in my intel se7505vb2 motherboard?


http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/se7505vb2/sb/cs-007399.htm

Page 16 of the Technical Product Specification guide;

3.1.1 Processor Support
"The Intel Server Board SE7505VB2 supports one or two processors in the 604-pin FCPGA package."

-> Socket 604,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_604

-> Intel XEON processors ONLY

"When two processors are installed, all Processors MUST be of identical revision, core voltage, and bus/core speed."

-> Means you really should use two IDENTICAL processors.

"When only one Processor is installed, it should be in the socket labeled CPU1, and the other socket must be empty."

-> Self-explanatory.
That's the processor socket furthest away from the black AGP graphics expansion slot, and closest to the outside edge of the motherboard.
(Page 104, and 105)

ONLY supports Intel Xeon processors with a 400MHz, or 533MHz FSB.

Dual-Core Xeon's start at 667MHz, and wouldn't work anyway; due to different Core architecture, and Instruction Sets.

667MHz, 800MHz, 1066MHz, and 1333MHz, for dual core Xeon's,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Xeon_microprocessors#Xeon_.28UP.2FDP.29.2C_Dual_Core_2

(Scroll down just a touch, to get the Wikipedia 'banner' out of the way, or click on it's X)

Scroll down the page, look at the charts. Starts with 800MHz FSB for Dual Core, then goes 667MHz, 800MHz, 1066MHz, and 1333MHz, Front Side Bus.

Use Dual Core processors?

No.

Two Single-Core processors.

Can i up grade my single core cpu pen4 550 3,4GHz to a Quad core or dual core either one would help


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)

Most major manufactures use motherboard designed to their specs and upgrades to the processor are limited. You can use software such as Belarc Advisor, to determine what motherboard you have and then you can search the net to determine what processors are compatible with it.

You can only mix the same family processors with different stepping and speed. Pentium D is not in the same family as a Xeon. So no, you can not. For as long as the processors are in the same family, you can mix dual core with quad core and even different speed.

Upgrade Intellistation Z Pro 6121 w11 to 64bit Xeon Processors


It helps if you give the right specification - the W11 is the 6221, not the non-existent 6121.
You have 2 x 2.4 Xeon in a Socket 604 package. The only CPUs these could be are the Tigerton - it certainly does support 64-bit operation, as well as VT.
You have little choice in processors - Tulsa, Tigerton and Dunnington.
The Tigerton is a little ripper! 2 x 4MB on-die cache, 1066 internal FSB, wide voltage range and low power consumption (80W).
http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=30779
You have a 4 processor 64-bit box - if it isn't poweful enough for you (and I can't see why - I run 50 concurrent VM users on less), you can only go to the 2.93 Tigerton as an upgrade. The other CPUs have more horsepower, less torque!
Don't get hung up on processor speed - for 64-bit big cache rules.
