How to upgrade emachine t3302 for 2014 gaming


The cost of upgrading this machine for that purpose would be more than the cost of a new machine, and the results would be less than satisfactory. Also, if it is running XP, you need to move on to a supported (safer) machine.

Emachines t3302 video controller


There are two drivers listed on Emachines support site. Try one and if it does not work, try the other. The computer probably shipped from Emachines with two different build of mother board.

Need emachines T3304 motherboard connection diagram


The eMachines T3304 Desktop PC uses an FIC K8MC51G motherboard.

First International Computers { Inc}

http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket754/fick8mc51g.shtml

http://support.gateway.com/s//MOTHERBD/FIC/105554/105554nv.shtml

Click on Product Views, then on - M-Front Panel Connector

The plastic front of your eMachines is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.
Sometimes abbreviated as F_PANEL, or FP1.

Looking at the motherboard installed in the computer case, the Front Panel header is at the Bottom/Right.

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/FIC/105554/105554mvr4.shtml

The above link shows the pinout, of the Front Panel header.
(Note* The Front Panel header may not be Orange in color)

It is the Second header over from the bottom/right side.
The pins are numbered.

Starting on the TOP row, from the RIGHT side going towards the LEFT;
Pins 10, 8, 6, 4, and 2

Starting on the BOTTOM row, from the RIGHT side going towards the LEFT;
Pins 9, 7, 5, 3, and 1.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive Activity LED light.
The LED light that blinks when the harddrive is in use, or active.

Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the LED is dim when operating, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch (Button), IF a Reset switch is used.


C) Pin 9 is for 5 Volt power. I believe if memory serves, that it is ONLY used by the factory.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive wire. ( + )
If the Power On LED light is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

F) Pin 10 is N/C. Not Connected.
(Note it states - Key
It shows you where the pins are. What order they should be by the missing pin)

The FIC K8MC51G motherboard;

1) Has a Socket 754 processor socket.
AMD processors fit in this processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_754

2) The motherboard chipset is an Nvidia C51.
It is part of the GeForce 6 series, and more specifically, the GeForce 6100 series,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_6_Series#GeForce_6100_and_6150_series_chip_specifications

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_6_.286xxx.29_series

Using this knowledge you can see what Processors are supported, and what Ram Memory is supported, (And how much)

AMD Sempron, or AMD Athlon 64 processors, with up to a 1000MHz Front Side Bus. (FSB) { That fit in a Socket 754 processor socket)

DDR Sdram ram memory that is 200MHz up to 400MHz.
(PC2100, or PC2700, {333MHz}, or PC3200)

{184-pins. 92 on each side}

OR,

DDR2 Sdram ram memory that is 400MegaHertz up to 1066MHz.
(PC2-3200, or PC2-4200/4300, or PC2-5300, or PC2-6400, or PC2-8500)

{240 pins. 120 on each side}

Your motherboard uses DDR Sdram. (184 pins. 92 on each side)

Maximum TOTAL Amount is 2GigaByte. (2GB)
Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 1GB.

3) Has one PCI-Express x16 slot for a PCI-Express graphics card.

The PCI-Express technology used for the motherboard is
PCI-Express 1.1

HOWEVER, you can use a PCI-Express graphics card that is based on the PCI-Express 2.0 technology.

PCI-Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible, with PCI-Express 1.1

You just will Not get the full capability of a PCI-Express 2.0 graphics card.
Will you notice? No

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I have an emachine T3302 and the screen is black help.


Emachines are not very reliable machines. Are you sure that the monitor settings are correct and that the chords arn't loose, otherwise you may have to get it repaired (good luck with their customer support) or replaced. Sorry.

I have an emachine T3302 AMD SEMPRON processor 3300 I downloaded malwarebytes and think I checked too many things on the list because I now cannot get on mozilla firefox at all. How do I get the internet...


If only firefox is affected, I would try using Internet Explorer and navigate to mozilla.com to download a new version of firefox and install it. This may fix the problem, as it's possible that something related to Firefox in the registry was corrupted by malwarebytes.

If this was helpful, please remember to leave me positive feedback.

Wanted to know what year it wasand if anygood?


Made in mid-year of 2005.

Any good?

Depends on what you wish a computer to do.

ONE:
The AMD Sempron line of Processors, are a Budget line of Processors.
Equate to comparing an Intel Celeron to an Intel Pentium.
(Celeron's are Budget/Starter processors)

[ The 'Sempy', and the 'Celey' have half of the Cache, that a comparable Athlon, or Pentium has.

(Cache for a Processor, is the first memory area that the Processor accesses.
The Cache operates at the same frequency rate as the Processor.

Cache for a Processor is a small memory area for the Processor)

Crude explanation of a Processor's cache;

You are writing a paper for college. You need more information for it.
Where is the information?

In a book, down in the basement, under the stairs, last book on the bottom in a box, and there is no basement light.

Down the stairs you go, flashlight in hand. Dig the book out, back up the stairs, open the book to the page you need.

You find you need more information, but it isn't in that book.
Yep, back down the stairs you go, flashlight in hand.

OR,
You could click a couple of keys on the keyboard in front of you, and have the information in seconds on your computer.

Basement scenario = Small processor cache
Computer scenario = Large processor cache ]

AMD Sempron:

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

List of AMD Sempron microprocessors,

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

2) HP Support > Compaq Presario SR1403WM desktop computer > Main Menu,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00257657&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=501310&lang=en

Note the supported Processors.
Note the processor socket type used; Socket 754.

Note the maximum Total amount of ram memory.

(2GB's of PC3200 ram memory will get you by just fine.
PC3200 is DDR Sdram at 400MegaHertz.
{400MHz)

Me?
Again, depends on what you wish to do with the computer.

The AMD Sempron 3000+ processor, (That uses a Socket 754 processor socket), can operate at a maximum frequency rate, ('Speed') of 1.8GigaHertz.
(1800MegaHertz)

I would try to find an Athlon 64 that uses a Socket 754 processor socket.
Here is one example I just found from searching, (Not advertising for this person, or website. Just an example of what to look for)

http://cgi.ebay.com/AMD-Athlon-64-3200-Socket-754-CPU-BRAND-NEW-/320559466147?pt=CPUs

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ (Socket 754)
Can operate up to a frequency rate of 2.2GHz
Has an L1 cache of 64KB, and an L2 cache of 512KiloByte's.

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K8/AMD-Athlon%2064%203200+%20-%20ADA3200AIO4BX%20%28ADA3200BXBOX%29.html

(In comparison, the AMD Sempron 3000+ can operate up to a frequency rate of 1.8GHz.
Has an L1 cache of 64KB, and an L2 cache of 128KB.

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K8/AMD-Sempron%203000%2B%20-%20SDA3000AIP2AX.html

Bump the Processor up, max out the Ram Memory, (2GB), install a decent PCI graphics card, and you'll be okay for basic internet, and watching a few movies. Even game playing if the game isn't too intense.
(War of Worlds at low settings, mmm okay
CS:S? Mmmmm, no)

Around my area, the computer tower by itself would sell for around $100 USD. With monitor, (Depending on type), keyboard, and optical mouse, (Throw the roller mouse in the trash), the price goes up.

Refurbished?

1) Generally means the inside of the computer, and the inside of the Power Supply, has been cleaned out. (May be a new cheap quality generic Power Supply installed instead)

2) Thermal paste in-between the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink, has been replaced. (Better be)

3) New Harddrive, with a fresh GENUINE copy of Windows installed.
This bumps the price up. Especially if Windows 7 has now been installed.

[Microsoft makes one master disk of an Operating System. Then GENUINE copies are made from it, and sold]

Look up the price of an IDE (PATA) harddrive, with the appropriate size. (150GB, 250GB, and so on)

Then find out which version of Windows 7 has been installed, and look up that price. Or whatever Windows operating system has been installed.

Add these two prices to a base price of $100 to $150, and see how the price compares to what is being offered to you.

Where does the video card go in a t3302 model emachine?


This particular model have AGP expansion slot located on motherboard, as this is rather obsolete computer, I am not sure if this is financially viable solution.

You will need phillips screwdriver.

To proceed with upgrade:

1. Switch off computer,
2. Remove power cord and monitor cord, if you want, you can disconect all remaining cords as well, but only if you are moving computer elsewhere.
3. Remove two thumbscrews holding left side (grill) panel, then slide it back and lift off
4. AGP slot is located below processor, just above white PCI slots, it is offset slightly towards front of the computer. If there is little screen mounted in first hole, remove it, depending how it is mounted by either, removing of the screw, or breaking it from the case.
5. Orient your card and insert it firmly in AGP slot, card should fit snuggly without bending or excessive force. Use screw to mount it to the back of the case frame.
6. Connect all cables, monitor cable to new installed video card, start your computer and check if there is display, if you have BIOS display, switch off computer, you installed your video card correctly.
7. Replace side moving it in reverse to removal, hung it first on the top and then slide forward, secure it back with thumbscrews.
8. Start back your computer
9. Install video drivers and setup your display to desired resolution.

Enjoy!

If you need manuals and settings for this model, these are availbale at this acer site:

I need emachine etower 600is intel processor


The eMachines eTower 600is uses an Intel Celeron III processor that operates at a maximum frequency rate of 600MegaHertz. (600MHz)

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=eTower%20Series&model=eTower_600is

The Intel Celeron 600 uses a Socket 370 processor socket.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Celeron_microprocessors#.22Coppermine-128.22_.28180_nm.29

There is a locking arm on the side of the Socket 370 processor socket, that is unlocked by easing the arm over to one side to clear a lock tab, then the arm is lifted up to remove the processor.

Example of a Socket 370 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_370

The eMachines eTower 600is uses an Intel 810 chipset, for the motherboard chipset.
[Chip and Chipset are slang terms used for Integrated Circuit, or IC]

The Intel 810 chipset, supports processors with a 66MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (66MHz FSB), or 100MHz FSB.

In an additional link, I will give a recommendation of where to buy an Intel Celeron 600, that uses a 66MHz FSB.
I'm not advertising for this place, it's just a place I have used, and have had good results.

Also information on the Intel 810 chipset.

You could also use an Intel Celeron 700MHz processor, but better still you could use an Intel Pentium III 933MHz processor.

Pentium's typically have Two times, the L2 cache that a comparable Celeron has.The more L2 cache a processor has, the faster it's going to process information.

I also know it will work because out in my shop I have an eMachines T1090, that has an Intel 810 chipset, uses a Socket 370 processor socket, and has an Intel Pentium III 933MHz processor in it.
(Made in 2001, and still works good to this day)

The Intel Pentium III 933MHz processor uses a 100MHz FSB.
The Intel 810 chipset supports processors that have either a 66MHz FSB, or a 100MHz FSB.

If you are not familiar with computer hardware technology, then I have just thrown a whole lot of information at you that is unfamiliar.

Should you like me to break down the information, I would be glad to. Just state so in a Comment.
