You will notice a lot of improvement in the speed and working of the PC when you change it to a faster processor. You can run the mini-corder with your 1.7Ghz P4 processor but you will soon be tired with the slow response of your PC. Changing it to a faster processor is a better option. You will be able to notice a change in the working of your PC with the mini-corder.
Before buying a Processor make sure you old processor can be replaced. Old Motherboards do not allow the replacement of the processor as it would be soldered. If you cannot change the Processor you will have to get a new motherboard with a better processor if you need a better one.
I suggest you buy an Intel Core2Duo or an Intel iCore Processor, not a P4. Leave a comment if you need more guidance. Don't forget to rate the solution.

Put in another HD made it a slave but i dont see it as a slave in system files


The master/slave drive model applies to IDE drives (older) these use a 40 or 80 pin ribbon cable. The newer SATA drives (L shaped connectors) don't rely on master/slave config. If you are using IDE you will need to specifically configure the jumper on the main drive as master and the other as slave, alternately you can set them both to cable select. The slave drive will show up under disk management as Disk 1. If you add a second disk this will give you more storage space, in this case 50GB (think of this a long term storage or data that is saved after the computer is shut down) Ram on the other hand is where the computer stores data and applications for faster access, not all of a program has to be loaded in to ram, parts of it can be swapped out from your hard drive as needed. Having more ram means the computer doesn't need to waste time swapping out parts of a program, it can load it all into ram at once.

I have a Compaq that came with this board and a celeron 1.8 or 2.0 I believe. The fastest P4 that will run is a Intel Northwood 2.8 Ghtz 400 FSB nothing ELSE! Northwood 2.8 is the fastest 400 FSB, the boards chipset won't run anything faster than 400 FSB. Mine is running, Win 7 the Northwood P4 2.8 with 2 gigs ram, 160 gig HD and a 256 video card for over 5 years (minus win 7, had XP before with no issues. Good for light gaming, web surfing and MS office! Add a Zotac 512 MB PCI or Sparkle Video card and you can handle most more medium gaiming out today!

Is the P4 processor removable in order to replace w/a faster P4?


To remove:

There is a lever/clamp that firmly holds the processor in the socket. You must pull the little brown/tan handle out (away from the socket) and up. It goes out perhaps 1/4 inch and up 90 degreee. Once this clamp has been released you should easily be able to lift the processor with your fingers.
Be extremely careful with all the pins on the processor as they bend out of alignment with very little force.

And i guess, you shld be able to replace the processor however you wld also want to confirm it with the customercare to confirm if your motherboard would support that.

I am using intel 845 GVSR mother board with p4 2.4Ghz processor and 256mb of ram.. my problem is whenever am playing any high resolution video or any HD video, the monitor screen became black and after...


If you have only 256 MB of RAM with a P4 system...there is most likely your problem....

I recommend that you increase your ram to at least 1 GB -- 2 GB if you can afford it and your board will support it. You will find that your system will be much faster, more responsive, and will most likely crash a LOT less!

I have elite mother board P4 M800 PRO M2 socket 775...the problem is always hang and to slow..i reformat 3 times but the problem same plz help me i need assistance..


This are things that need to consider in a computer speed performance:
1. Amount of ram memory(If you have only small amount of memory then your computer performance is poor.)
2. Speed of your processor(You should need at least a 1Ghz processor speed or more).

I suggest you increase your ram memory so that your computer will perform faster.

My flip ultrahd apparently needs a faster processor than my imac has. Nice of them to put this in the spec's - oh wait, it's not. Does the non-HD version need a faster processor?


Non-HD video can be edited on mac G4. Mine works from 2003 as well... And with a professional video. So, don't be afraid and edit Your non-HD without trouble.
Sincerely.
