Go to and type: "Ibm Aptiva Support or Lenovo Support" in the search (without the quotes). Go to their drivers and download site, enter your computer's model and operating system. Look for Manuals or Documents on the site to download.

I have an Aptiva by IBM that I am trying to find out the size of the processor and how much memorry it has

Suggest you download (Free) the tiny program, CPU-Z, from

Bear in mind that the example shown on the CPU-Z page, is for a newer Intel Core i7 model.

These processors do Not use a Front Side Bus. (FSB)
Where it states QPI is Quick Point Interconnect.

For the older processors this will state Rated FSB instead.
FSB is Front Side Bus.
Tells you what Frequency Rate ('Speed') that the processor FSB, is operating at THAT moment.

(All info is Real Time. Watch the Core Speed change)

Looking at the GUI example on the CPU-Z page, observe the tab that states CPU.

When the program is first opened, the Processor (CPU) tab is automatically opened.

Here you can see very detailed information on the Processor.
Main things to look at are;

1) Name: Manufacturer name and the Model Number

2) Code Name: This name will help you differentiate what processor you are looking at. One of the things that is specific TO THAT processor.

3) Package: Essentially tells you the processor socket that is used.

4) Core Voltage: The optimum voltage the Processor will operate on.

It is DC voltage.
There is a voltage Range the processor will operate in, but the range is VERY SMALL.

Depends on the processor, but 2/10ths above, or 2/10ths below, is an average example ( .2 )

5) Rated FSB:

This part of what you need to know, IF you are looking at upgrading the Processor.
The rest of what you need to know, is what Motherboard Chipset is used.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit.
The terms are used alternatively, as either Chip, or Chipset, also.

For example, the motherboard chipset is actually two Chipsets.
Or Chips.
The Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.

(For the technology used by the motherboard of the IBM Aptiva)

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

High-speed graphics being the AGP, or PCI-Express technology.
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.

1) Anything to do with the PCI Bus.
(Such as a graphics card installed in a PCI slot )
2) Same with the IDE Bus
3) SATA bus
4) USB bus
5) Ethernet
6) Audio (Sound)

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

Clicking on the Mainboard tab, will show what the motherboard chipset is. (Mainboard is proper computer speak for Motherboard)

Now then, what Series is it, and what Machine Type?
Post back in a Comment.

Need to install a new OS on my IBM Aptiva E 245 PC Desktop

You may want to download the manual for your computer, to see what operating systems are supported. When you say "new" OS, do you mean a reinstallation of the current one, or do you want to upgrade to a newer version? If your computer has Windows XP on it, it is very likely that you will not be able to install Windows 7 on it. In that case, I'd recommend sticking with Windows XP.

Re upgrade, memory, speed etc?

Upgrade the RAM/Memory? Yes to the maximum *********** Bord will support.

Upgrade the Processor for more speed on a 9 year old Mother Board? Probably not worth the trouble.
