You could easily pick up an aftermarket USB PCI card, which will give you 2-4 USB ports that have their own logic chip. These are quite easy to install and very inexpensive.
Another option would be a front-mounted USB hub, which would attach to the USB header on your mainboard. They come in 3.5" size (to go in a floppy drive slot) or 5.25" for CD/DVD size slots.
Either of these should work fine as long as the rest of the PC is OK. If not, they are pretty much universal, so you could put in your next computer. (if it didn't work).
Good luck!

Hi,

Sounds like a procie problem.

Check your processor's heatsink, if it really sits flat on your processsor.

Try to replace with another processor, take note of your socket if that is for the board's requirement.
Put a new heatpste too.

Then tell us the effect.

Thanks for using Fixya!

Nonfunctioning keyboard M6750 Gateway Laptop


That small retaining clip is what holds tension to the keyboard cable where it fits in the slot on the motherboard.
If you have the type of retaining clip that slides down into the slot to hold the cable in place then what you can do is very carefully put the cable back in the slot, then take the retaining clip and lay it on the cable, then try to slide the clip down into the slot with the cable, this will lock the cable in place.... Note, in this type of connector, the cable sometimes goes above the locking clip. if it does not go too easy, then it may be backwards, flip it over and try it again. When the cable is reseated, cover the connection with electrical tape to hold it fast. If the retaining clip is the flip up lever type, then you will have to try and look at it under a magnifyer and try to slip the ends of the retaining clip back into the sides of the slot where they lock in place. If these repairs cannot be done to where you recover functionality, then the motherboard has to be replaced in order to fix it...that keyboard connector is soldered to the motherboard.

Inspiron 1501 cpu upgrade problem


Did you check the AMD site for compatibility? If they are, you could have a bad chip, it could have been mishandled or inserted incorrectly. Visual inspection first for burns, contaminated or bent conductors. Static discharge will kill cpus.

Video Card Problem


hi. The amd semprom has similar to an intel celeron. These cpu's are not gaming cpu's. The graphics card you are using is now quite old- very few agp graphics cards are made now. I would say that the cpu and gpu may be the problem but it depends what game you are playing. New video cards use pci express slot and new cpu's are dual core and quad core. If you are serious abot games then you could do with a new motherboard- maybe one supporting an intel core 2 duo cpu, to that add at least a Nvidia 9600gt 512mb gddr3 video card and have 3-3 gb's of ram.

Sony Vaio VGN CR-220E


Haha!

I had such dreams too with one of my old Vaio. I really wanted to upgrade the processor and graphic chipset. Turns out that the latter is impossible (it was soldered to the motherboard - it wasn't a graphics card, just an all-in-one chip), as for the processor I was able to take it out but I ran into several problems:
1) vaio added electronic components to the motherboard that made higher CPU speeds unachievable even if the motherboard's cipset (VIA) was able to do that.
2) the cpu maker (AMD in my case) kept telling me that their mobile cpu were custom designed for that specific laptop, so new cpu would be incompatible. Also mobile CPUs are, apparently, only sold to laptop makers, unlike OEMs... (eBay but at ur own risk!).
3) When buying a new CPU, u need to check factors such as the number of pins (mobile cpu are much smaller), voltage, current, wattage and heat dissipation (very important, ur current heat sink was designed for ur current cpu).

But maybe things have changed now. In my case, I could only upgrade the RAM and the hard-drive to larger and faster versions, and the difference was quite significant difference. Faster booting and better internet experience.

CPU Upgrade-Which Sockel?


Here is some information may be useful to you. Intel processors Socket 1 169 pins 486 SX/DX Socket 2 238 pins 486 SX/DX/DX2 Socket 3 237 pins 486 SX/DX/DX2/DX4 Socket 6 235 pins 486 DX4 Socket 4 273 pins Pentium 60 en 66MHz Socket 5 320 pins Pentium 75 t/m 200MHz Socket 7 321 pins Pentium, AMD K6/K6-2/K6-3, Cyrix M1/M2 Socket 8 387 pins Pentium Pro 150 - 200MHz Slot 1 242 pins PII, PIII en Celeron Slot 2 330 pins PII Xeon en P III Xeon Socket 370 370 pins PIII, Celeron, Cyrix III Socket 423/478 423/478 pins Pentium4 Socket 603 603 pins Pentium4 Xeon PAC418 418 pins Intel Itanium PAC611 611 pins Intel Itanium 2 AMD processors Slot A 242 pins Athlon Socket A 453 pins Athlon, Athlon XP, Athlon MP and Duron Socket 754 754 pins AMD Athlon 64 Socket 940 940 pins AMD Opteron Conclusion: You can not upgrade beacuse Armada M700 has a pentium III processor with 370 pins. So the Socket 478 pinned pentium is not suitable. Advise: Try to exchange it with a new laptop or buy a used laptop for suitabl configuration

Installing an AMD K6-2 processsor on a Compaq laptop


Either your setting is not correct or your new AMD CPU is not a compatible type. One thing very easy to verify is if it is compatible, it will seat very firmly. You may need to check the model and serial number to be sure you get the correct CPU for your old board.
