Here's the table of supported processors from the manual for your board:

need to upgrade processor, need to know most - pgh_pa_guy_12.jpg

If you need a copy of the manual, you can download it here.

There's really very little to be gained by upgrading the processor on this board, unless it's the bottom-rated Celeron. Here's one source for the Pentium 4 at the top of the table. There are others, I just picked this one because it was first. This is a discontinued, fairly old board with a socket 478 design. This limits the processors it will support, and also the availability of parts. Simply sticking in a little faster processor won't make a big difference in performance.

What will help, if you haven't already done so, is to add memory. Putting in the maximum the board can support (or is supported by the operating system, if it's a lower amount) and using RAM matched to the processor speed will let was you have already work its best. And upgrading your video card may also be helpful for many applications.

How do I switch/upgrade my motherboard from a 32bit to a 64bit please


Having a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system mainly depends upon the operating system that is loaded on your primary hard drive (generally drive C:). However, your motherboard's components, i.e., processor and amount of system RAM, will be a major factor in determining whether you can only run a 32-bit operating system, or upgrade to a 64-bit system.

Upgrade of microprocessor


I reckon this upgrade is not possible because the m/b hardware doesn't support the SL7E6. It's not listed amongst the processors available for that model (highest speed one listed at 3.2GHz), and the specs imply that L2 cache must be 512MB or less. (This answer is not definitive)

Fastest CPU available for the K7N2G?


Look for socket A processors and ignore the XXXX+ and focus on the XXXXMHz rating (the MoBo's manufacturer's support site will give you the max processor your Board will handle). Since you mention that your MoBo is 4 to 5 years old, you'll probably better serve yourself to replace the MoBo and processor (you'll be able to upgrade to a much better/faster processor by upgrading both, and shouldn't cost that much more), and probably be happier with the result. You may want/need to upgrade your Power supply while you are at it too.

Emachine T4150 CPU upgrade


Your processor is a Pentium 4 processor that uses there are 3 different type of sockets for Pentium processors. Socket 423, socket 478, and the latest one is socket 775.
Based on the information here:

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T-Series&model=T4150

Your MoBo has a Socket 478 and since it only support 400MHz bus, then your maximum upgrade is 2.0MHz, because all other devices faster than that, need higher bus speed that your Mother Board does not support.

Hope you find the answer useful.

Best regards,

Upgrading processor (K7SEM v3.0 Motherboard)


Unfortunately, you have not provided any details regarding current specs (PSU, type of SDRAM, etc.) to enable anyone to suggest a replacement motherboard. For freeform discussion, I would agree that FixYa is probably not the best medium, e.g. in discussing potential replacements. Rather, if you have a specific question which has a specific answer, then this site would be better suited to your needs. As to your original question, the best answer I can offer (personally) is that if your CPU is soldered to the board, you should complain to the vendor who sold it that way (that's crap), and replace the board with something suitable (provide more details). If there's a belief it may not be soldered, the heatsink is probably attached via thermal paste, and is going to be a PITA to remove. Sometimes it will pull off with some force, though on at least one occasion, the solder joints beneath the socket gave before the thermal paste did, causing the heatsink, CPU, and socket to all come off the motherboard.
