Question about Acer Computers & Internet

Open Question

I have an Acer E945GM motherboard (from desktop Acer Aspire E650). This motherboard has LGA775 socket. Does it support Core2Duo processors? I do not need a better performance due to an upgrade. My task is better CPU-efficiency (less power consumption, may be less performance).

Your motherboard specs are at

Looks like you could go up to a 3.8GHz P4, make sure you get a fan that will cool it properly.

SOURCE: Upgrading CPU on Asus PSBW-LA motherboard

Dealing with OEM PC's can be rather difficult. Most of the specifications on those chips are the same, except the FSB (Front System Bus). The E6300 is 1066MHz and the E6550 is 1333MHz. I don't believe that this is set by jumpers (i'm 95% sure). I would look into BIOS to see if it is an available option to change (though most of the time this setting is set on AUTO). There is a chance that you will need to provide a BIOS update. If you chose to do this be very careful as this is dangerous. Should something interupt this (power outage or something like that) your computer could become useless. Definitely make sure to do a lot of research and preparation before performing an update.

SOURCE: ASUS P5KPL-CM Bios Problem with Core2Duo 2.8 Ghz Processor.

I recommend going to this site and getting the latest Bios for the board.

I don't know your expertise with computers but it will require you downloading their Bios boot disk utility and creating a boot disk. then copy the Bios file to the same disk. When you boot it up it will guide you through the Bios flash process.

Be aware that you can completely kill the Bios if it has a problem during the flashing so only do it if you are positive you can get through it.

Alternately if you can push the F1 and get into the OS the Motherboard utility disk should have an updater you can use from inside windows.

Install ATI Radeon X1550 PIC on Acer Aspire E650

If you think the PC boots up but just no screen, check the Graphics settings in BIOS for first/initial diaplay with PCI instead of other Graphics Ports (on board/PCIe/PCI/AGP)? Disable on board display if any.

The motherboard will only draw the wattage/current it needs.
Be carefull with Branded machines often their components are proprietary.
Remove the 20 or 24 pin connector to the motherbaord and compare the colour coding of the pin outs with the examples shown on this site.
