Hello
If your memory config in the bios is set to automatic,then you shouldnt have to update the bios.Or the chipset.

If however there is a bios and chipset update available, then i would update them both after you install the new memory chips.

Yes you do have to up date your bios so it will read how much memory you have if you dont up date it, when you go and put more memory in it will give you some kind of waring

Dell dimention 2350 socket 478 I upgrade celeron 2.0Ghz to pentium 4 3.0Ghz 530 The Bios show me the speed 1.5Ghz. Bios A02


The Dell Dimension 2350 Desktop PC motherboard, has an Intel 845GL motherboard chipset,
mounted to it. (System Information),

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim2350/specs.htm#1101572

Here we see that the Intel 845GL chipset supports processors, with a -> maximum <- Front Side Bus of 400MegaHertz, (FSB = 400MHz max.),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

The Intel Pentium 4 model 530 (3.0GHz. Also has Hyper-threading Technology. HT), operates with a FSB of 800MegaHertz, (FSB = 800MHz),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Prescott_.2890.C2.A0nm.29_2

(Scroll down. Pentium 4 HT 530 )

You can't make the Intel 845GL chipset support a processor with an 800MHz FSB.
BIOS update or not, the voltage range will be too low. Therefore the FSB is low. Changing just the Multiplier will not do the trick either.

(BIOS Setup, Advanced Chipset Setup. Doubt the options of changing the FSB, and/or Voltage, and/or Multiplier, is available with that BIOS program))

Note your 3.0GHz processor is operating at 1.5GHz?

Max FSB supported is 400MHz, and your Model 530 needs 800MHz? (For max operation)

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

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

The motherboard chipset technology used for your computer, has a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.

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

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

[ The AGP technology, and the PCI-Express technology, is High-speed graphics.
Using a graphics card in a PCI slot, or using Integrated Graphics, is NOT High-speed graphics ]

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.
Anything connected to the PCI bus, (Such as a PCI graphics card)
IDE (PATA)
SATA
USB
Ethernet
Audio (Sound)

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

[ CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short ]

So it is first up to the Northbridge chip, of the motherboard chipset, whether it will support a certain processor, THEN if a BIOS update will help.

Installing sodimm 2x2gb ram for acer aspire 5504wxmi will not boot but each 2gb installed seperately will boot. Why wont the BIOS recognise 4gb even before the OS could boot? is there a fix?


The motherboard chipset, and more specifically the Northbridge chip, will Not support 4GB of Ram memory.

The Acer Aspire 5500 series of Notebook PC's, (Which the Aspire 5504wxmi Notebook PC is one of the series), uses an Intel 910GL motherboard chipset,

The Intel 910GL motherboard chipset only supports 2GB of Ram Memory,

I invite you to reinstall the Ram Memory the Aspire worked with, go online, and download the tiny, free program - CPU-Z
This tiny program will tell you exactly what motherboard chipset is on the Aspire's motherboard.

This is information on CPU-Z, and shows you the GUI of CPU-Z,
(Graphics User Interface),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU-Z

Click on the screenshot of CPU-Z on the upper right of the page. (Enlarges it)

CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short.
When you open CPU-Z it automatically opens to the CPU tab.

If you click on the Mainboard tab, you will find out in-depth information on your motherboard.
(Mainboard is proper speak for Motherboard)

CPU-Z homepage,

http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

CPU-Z download page for newest version,

Need help in downloading, and installing CPU-Z, post in a Comment.
Also what the tabs are, and how to understand what you are looking at.

I would like to upgrade my cpu. Can I put a larger cpu? I have a compaq EVO D510 with a 1.8 processor.


You can upgrade the speed of the CPU. Of course in order to do that you must know the motherboard capabilities. If the motherboard is upgradable to 2.0ghz processor with the same specs with your 1.8ghz processor then you can upgrade. If the motherboard is un-upgradable, my suggestion is to replace the motherboard, get a new processor, memory module, etc. Meaning you just bought a new computer. For the mean time, upgrade your memory module. Un-install the software that you don't need. Especially the one the eats up the processor speed.

It looks as though my resources were incorrect, as far as the two motherboards having the same processor socket.
(MSI RS480M uses a Socket 754)

What does concern me, is if the motherboard chipset used is the same. This was the stated information.

The motherboard chipset consists of the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.

Chip, and Chipset are slang terms for IC. Integrated Circuit.

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

Viewing this motherboard diagram may help explain how the motherboard chipset comes into play,

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

[You can also type, one at a time, Northbridge (computing), Southbridge (computing), Comparison of AMD chipsets, in the Wikipedia search bar, to gain more knowledge]

The Northbridge chip determines what Processors can be used.
It also controls high speed graphics technology.
AGP and PCI Express being high speed graphics, not PCI.

Determines what Ram Memory is used, and what Southbridge chip is compatible with it.

Let's go back to basics, and see what Northbridge chip is on your motherboard.
Two ways.
One, it looks as though you may be using a tiny program such as CPU-Z, or Belarc Advisor.

If not, I would advise downloading the free, tiny program CPU-Z from CPUID.com
Can you install the old processor, (AMD Athlon 2.25GHz), and get your computer to work, or are you using it now?

After you have CPU-Z running, left-click on the Mainboard tab, and tell me what it states for Chipset. Also tell me what it states for Southbridge.

Second way.
Physically look at the Northbridge, and Southbridge chip. IF, they are not covered with a heatsink.

The Northbridge chip is usually a large chip, and is located close to the processor socket.
Most configurations are like this; Processor socket at the top of the motherboard, ram memory slots to the right, Northbridge chip below the processor socket.

Motherboard designers put the Southbridge chip all over the place. There is no usual spot.

It is my belief at the moment, that your Northbridge chip will not support dual core processors, such as an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+
Only Single core processors.
Once I know what Northbridge chip you have, we can determine what your CPU support is.

Blue screen on start-up. Mobo SIS-741 Chipset SIS741GX Rev 03


This problem can be caused by several things. First, are the memory chips exactly identical (brand, type, size, etc.)? If not, that will definitely cause the problem. Second, how many memory slots are there? If you have four, check the manual and make sure you're putting the memory in the correct slots. Some Mobo's require that you put chips in slots A1 and B1 and not A1 and A2. Also, some Mobo's have DDR slots and DDR2 slots, so make sure you're putting the right kind of memory into the proper slots. Some people fudge the memory by putting 400 mhz memory into slower slots, and that works one chip at a time - but if you install a second, identical chip, the system will fail. If all else fails and you've met these conditions, check the type of memory to be sure of the proper fit (use manufacturer's recommended brands and numbers) or try a different chip in the second slot. One chip could be bad.

Bios Update


You first have to find out what kind of Chipset you are using. To update the bios, the PC information is not relevant: Relevant is to know the Motherboard/Chipset/Mainboard Manufacturer/Vendor.

you can find information abour your Chipset in your BIOS. Your chipset will be INTEL but the question is now: What is the the Intel Chipset Model ? You can look on the motherboard on the chips itself or on the S/N sticker that tells you the complete Chipset model number/ serial number. If you have the numbers, please state them here so that I can find a link where you can download the bios upgrade
