Where is the 40 pin IDE on a Connolly cruus e187242 f2


This motherboard only has one such connector. It is above the video connector, right next to the main power connector. When a PC has only one IDE headder, it is usually used for the CD/DVD drive.

This PC is designed to use SATA hard drives for which there are two connectors available for use.

I have a dimension 2400. the current processor is a pentium 4 2.2 can i swap the processor with a intel core duo ??


After checking the specs of this here : http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim2400/en/sm_en/specs.htm

i can confirm that a intel core duo would not be supported without changing the motherboard, and probably the memory too.

If it is not the physical start button and the power supply is OK something you can look for yourself is a blown capacitor on the motherboard. They should have flat tops. The one pictured here is from a Dell 5150 Connolly E187242 motherboard that I am currently working on and you can see that the top is not flat but rounded. I am not an expert and it could be something else but I feel this is worth checking out.

The ON/OFF button just "closes" an open circuit, e.g., just like a light-switch on the wall.

You could briefly even "short" the two pins on the motherboard front-panel, with a metal screwdriver, to prove that "closing" the circuit is the trigger to the motherboard to react, either by starting-up, or by shutting-down.

The Dimension 5150 has a BTX case, which is nearly impossible to upgrade. The motherboard is NOT interchangeable (with a few exceptions, but none of which are true upgrades).

If you have a PCI Express slot, you can upgrade the video card but do not get a card that requires an additional power cable directly from the power supply. This is because the stock power supply is very weak and doesn't have outputs for additional cards. If the card requires no additional power, you should be fine.

You can upgrade your processor with the P4 [Prescott] 5xx or 6xx Series Processors with HT. The 5150 does not support core 2 duo processors. Depending on what you currently have, this may or may not be worthwhile. Also note that higher power processors run at higher temps, which sometimes causes a noticeable increase in fan noise.

The hard drive is easily upgradeable. Just buy any standard sized SATA hard drive. Your computer case supports two drives, so you could keep your current drive and just add a second drive. Remember to buy a SATA cable with the new drive because new drives usually don't come with them.

Overall, if you're looking to get outstanding performance, get a new computer. BTX computers are not gaming computers. You'll end up dumping money into this thing just to get a lousy increase in performance.

Upgrade cpu


It is a bit of a crapshoot trying to upgrade a processor from a major manufacturer. Their motherboards are designed specifically for the manufacturer and documentation on exactly what will work NOW compared to when the unit was new is rather hard to come by. They don't support people upgrading very well compared to the aftermarket manufacturers.

You should go to dell.com and put in your service tag to check your exact configuration yourself before spending any money.

According to Dell, the Dimension 5150 has a motherboard that uses the Intel 945G Express chipset. You can see INTEL'S documentation on that chipset's capabilities here. According to that documentation you can use a socket LGA775 with up to a 1066 MHz system bus speed.

Looking at Newegg, the fastest LGA775 processor with 1066 MHz are a 2.93GHz Duo core or a 2.4 GHz quad core. Again, no guarantees either will work with your system, and you definately want to make sure your power supply and case cooling are up to the task.

Change Motherboard For Dell Dimension 5150


If you replace with the same motherboard that's in already, that would be easiest for you.

But if you use a different one, you'll have to re-activate Windows, and download and install new device drivers.
