    I'm running XP Media Edition. I was having trouble with my laptop for a few weeks and finally broke down and ran my system restore. I had given it to a friend of mine who actually did the restore, and i believe did a full hard drive wipe before the restore, so I'm not sure if he had disabled the core before or after. If I enable the core, then run my system restore, would that fix the problem? I don't have any Windows XP Media Edition cd's, only my system restore disks.

    XP Home or Pro? XP Home doesn't support it, but if XP Pro then we'll keep digging on issue.

If the dual core was shut down when xp loaded (installed) it would crash when trying to run two cores.

Dell Inspiron 1545 red processor:Pentium(R) Dual-core CPU T4400 @2.20GHz is error code 2000-0221, how to solve this problem?


this is a bios level error, you should still be able to run the system. this code is something you get when you hit F12 and run the diagnostics? or is this a blue screen error? you are probably going to need to boot to F2 (setup) then hit "Alt e" Alt F then Alt B the system will beep on the alt f but that's ok once this is done hit esc, save changes and reboot and see if you still get the error

My system crashes all the time. It locks up, reboots itself, goes blue screen and crash dump... most of the time it just locks and the only solution is to power down and back up again. Sometimes I get...


the solution here is to uninstall nvidia graphic driver and buy an external graphic card and install this if you are running on the on board one this has problems with resources and memory shareing.

Make sure you have got 128mb or above on board and directory x10 plus pixel shrader for video playback an do a virus scan as well plus a spyware sweep.

and if you are running xp this also can cause problems upgrade to vista premium for dual core boards as this dual core systemboards are more designed for vista then xp.

good luck on this one

Upgrade from Pentium 3 to Pentium 4


what socket is the Pentium 3? Socket A. The sockets have to be compatible for example you can't upgrade a Dual Core for a Core 2 Duo because although the chipsets look the same the motherboard may not support the new instruction set. I had this problem recently as i wanted to upgrade my Intel Celeron D 3.02ghz to the Pentium Dual Core 1.8ghz and although the chips were identical and fitted perfectly in my mobo, the actual mobo i was using (foxconn) wouldnt work with it forcing me to buy an ASRock mobo and replace the entire system.

Restart problem


Hi mewada,

If the system is rebooting itself, it may not be an issue with the drivers - there may be a hardware issue or an improperly seated CPU fan or other peripheral.

I'm not sure from your problem description whether you're able to get into Windows at all - does it just randomly reboot, or does it Blue Screen and never let you in at all?

If you're able to get into Windows and it reboots now and then, try installing the proper CPU drivers. For many games and some other applications, dual-core AMD CPUs require a specific driver. There's also a dual-core optimizer you may want to try. Check at the top of this list.

http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/TechnicalResources/0,,30_182_871_13118,00.html

Otherwise, please be more descript as to when the system reboots and (if you know) what you think you might be doing when it reboots. Faulty memory (RAM) modules and CPUs are the main causes of systems rebooting (other things are generally at fault for freezing up or blue screens).
