In general, processors are not replaceable except with the same model. There are several problems including, motherboard circuits, BIOS support, soldering, etc. Even just swapping processors is a difficult to impossible job best left to experts.
If you price motherboards, you'll only find a replacement, not an upgrade. Spend your money on a desktop system.

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

Advantages of Server Virtualization


Hardware Virtualization uses software to create a Virtual Machine (VM) that emulates a physical computer. This creates a separate OS environment that is logically isolated from the host server. By providing multiple VMs at once, this approach allows several operating systems to run simultaneously on a single physical machine.

Rather than paying for many under-utilized server machines, each dedicated to a specific workload, server virtualization allows those workloads to be consolidated onto a smaller number of more fully-used machines.

Beginning with Windows Server 2008, server virtualization using Hyper-V technology has been an integral part of the operating system. Windows Server 2008 R2 introduces a new version of Hyper-V. Hyper-V makes it easier than ever to take advantage of the cost savings of virtualization through Windows Server 2008.
Benefits

· Increased availability for virtualized data centers through enhancements such as Live Migration

· Improved management of virtualized data centers through Powershell and System Center integration

· Increased Performance and Hardware Support for Hyper-V Virtual Machines via 64 logical processor support and processor compatibility mode

· Improved Virtual Networking Performance through new networking technologies

· A simplified method for physical and virtual computer deployments by using .vhd files

· Designed to provide a secure computing platform across both physical and virtual environments, enabled through next-generation architecture and security features

Sir i m using windows 7 ultimate...n i want install tally 7.2. i cant use it in windows 7. i m also trying run as administrator, change compatibility mode in windows xp sp2 mode...but i hve same probs..so...


Hi,

Tally 7.2 is not longer supported. You might need to upgrade to the newest version.
The only other suggestion is to see if you can run in XP Mode. This will depend upon your computer requirements.

Running Windows XP Mode requires:

1. Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate editions.
2. A computer capable of hardware virtualization. This means your computer has a central processing unit (CPU) with either Intel-VT or AMD-V virtualization features.
3. Virtualization features turned on in your computer's basic input/output system (BIOS).

To determine whether your computer's CPU is capable of hardware virtualization, go to the Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC support website and download a utility that can check whether your Intel or AMD CPU is compatible.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/support/configure-bios.aspx

To find your brand of processor so you can download the appropriate utility, click the Start button , right-click Computer, and then click Properties. Under System, next to Processor, you can see what type of CPU you have.

Even if your CPU can run Windows XP Mode, you might also need to turn on virtualization settings in your computer's BIOS. Procedures vary depending on the BIOS manufacturer. For more information, see BIOS: frequently asked questions.

At startup windows says startup repair looking for problems. I have a 1545 Inspiron Dell


Don't know what windows version you are running. See if
you can boot up in safe mode by tapping F8 key while
restarting, then attempt system restore to a previous
date when it ran properly.

Laptop won't boot into Windows XP


Did you do an upgrade or new install? Did you check the system requirements first to see if you could upgrade to Vista? This could all play a part in why it does not boot up. I suggest you reinstall windows XP again.

Pc is restarting but doesn't show the log on screen


It sounds like your Windows Installation is corrupt. If there isn't anything you need on the drive, I would get a Windows XP CD (Look on the side of your case for a Windows Key, Get that version of the CD) Then I'd use that windows XP CD to wipe the drive and Re-install windows. If there is Data on the drive you need, You will need to invest in either a second HD, or You need to Install Windows on a Second HD and boot from that if you already have a second HD.
