Need picture layout and specs fore cg5270

[The above is for Reference, NOT advertising ]

The Asus Essential CG5270 Desktop PC uses the Asus P5QL-VM mobo.

Click on the Download tab.
(Overview / Specifications / Download / etc)

Click on the blue Down Arrow, on the right side of the - Select OS box.
Click on ANY Operating System. You are just after the Manual.

At the bottom of the list click on the + sign, to the left of the blue -
Manuals (7)
Scroll the INSIDE blue scroll bar down, until you see -
Version E4576 - P5QL-VM EPU user's manual (English)

Click on the blue - Global
A small window will come up -

Make SURE there is a Green dot, in the small circle to the left of -
Save File.
If not; left-click once in the small empty circle, to the left of -
Save File.
Now go below in the small window, and click on - OK.

A small download window will come up. Allow the file to download all the way, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.
Another small window will come up.

Go to the far left, and click on - Extract all files
At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on -
Next, Next, and Finish.

In the last small window DOUBLE-click right on the file name.
(E4576_P5QL-VM EPU, next to the red Adobe PDF icon)

There is your motherboard manual in PDF file form.

Motherboard Layout is on Page 1-6
Internal Connectors on Page 1-24
Specs on Page 1-13 for Ram Memory, and Page 1-1 for the motherboard.

Supports Intel;
Core2 Duo, Core2 Quad, and Core2 Extreme processors;
either an 800MegaHertz Front Side Bus, 1066MHz FSB, or 1333MHz FSB.

ALL use the Socket T processor socket. (LGA 775 = Same/same)
ALL based on -> Up To the 45nm architecture.
(Means will support Intel Core2 processors that are based on the 65nm architecture, OR 45nm architecture)

The motherboard chipset is an Intel G43 -> Northbridge chip; and an Intel ICH7 -> Southbridge chip.
(Part number on Southbridge chip is Intel 82801GB)

THIS, is according to the following website,

I don't think so.

The Intel G43 - Northbridge chip, is usually matched up with the Intel ICH10, or ICH10R - Southbridge chip,

Scroll down to G43 in the left column.
(Past G35 and P45)

[Part number of ICH10 and ICH10R, is Intel 82801JB, and Intel 82801JR; respectively, ]

However, suggest you use the free tiny program CPU-Z, from, and find out what motherboard chipset is used,

[ When CPU-Z is opened it automatically opens to the CPU tab.
Clicking on the Mainboard tab gives you information on the Motherboard.
If you need help in downloading, installing, or using CPU-Z, post back in a Comment ]

B) Ram Memory:
DDR2 Sdram.
240 gold plated contact pins. 120 on each side.
One Locating Notch.

Reputed to use 800MegaHertz up to 1333MHz.
(800MHz, 1066Mhz, and 1333Mhz)

However it MATTERS on what Processor you are using.
Ram Memory typically operates at half of the Frequency Rate ('Speed'), of the Processor's Front Side Bus. (FSB)

Since the Intel G43 came out in 2008, it stands to reason that the PCI Express technology is PCI Express 2.0

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Ram compatibilty

Yes you can but the higher spec DDR2/800 RAM will run at at lower speed same as the DDR2/ 667 RAM.
When you install the DDR2/800 RAM and the BIOS only detects 1Gb of RAM then this RAM is not compatible with the 1st RAM module. In this case use RAM module that is the same make and speed as the original RAM module.

Installing sodimm 2x2gb ram for acer aspire 5504wxmi will not boot but each 2gb installed seperately will boot. Why wont the BIOS recognise 4gb even before the OS could boot? is there a fix?

The motherboard chipset, and more specifically the Northbridge chip, will Not support 4GB of Ram memory.

The Acer Aspire 5500 series of Notebook PC's, (Which the Aspire 5504wxmi Notebook PC is one of the series), uses an Intel 910GL motherboard chipset,

The Intel 910GL motherboard chipset only supports 2GB of Ram Memory,

The motherboard chipset technology used in your Acer Aspire 5504wxmi Notebook PC, consists of a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.

[ Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

The Northbridge chip is an Intel 82910GL {Part Number}
The Southbridge chip is an Intel 82801FB {Part Number} It is also referred to as ICH6.

Scroll the above page down towards the bottom, until you come to the heading -
Southbridge 9XX and 3/4 Series chipsets, for information on the Southbridge chip ]

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

{AGP and PCI-Express graphics technology are High-speed graphics.
A graphics card inserted into a PCI slot, or a graphics chipset using the PCI bus, is NOT high-speed graphics.
Integrated Graphics is Not High-speed graphics }

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.
Anything connected to the PCI bus, Integrated Graphics, IDE bus, SATA bus, USB bus, Ethernet, and Audio,

I invite you to reinstall the Ram Memory the Aspire worked with, go online, and download the tiny, free program - CPU-Z
This tiny program will tell you exactly what motherboard chipset is on the Aspire's motherboard.

This is information on CPU-Z, and shows you the GUI of CPU-Z,
(Graphics User Interface),

Click on the screenshot of CPU-Z on the upper right of the page. (Enlarges it)

CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short.
When you open CPU-Z it automatically opens to the CPU tab.

If you click on the Mainboard tab, you will find out in-depth information on your motherboard.
(Mainboard is proper speak for Motherboard)

CPU-Z homepage,

CPU-Z download page for newest version,

Need help in downloading, and installing CPU-Z, post in a Comment.
Also what the tabs are, and how to understand what you are looking at.


(If an online entity suggested an Acer Aspire 5504wxmi will support 4GB of Ram Memory, they are wrong.
Find out what exact motherboard chipset is on the motherboard. This will support my statement )

How to take the cpu out of a dell desktop

To remove the CPU from a Dell desktop, you first need to unplug the power cable, and then hold down the power button for five seconds to drain any residual power from the computer. Make sure you are wearing an anti static wrist band, or at least touch something metal to discharge any static on your fingers. Next, remove one side of the case. One side is intended to be removed, and is held in place either by two screws on the back or by a latch that is pulled on the top of the case (unless it is a clamshell tower that opens in half). Once open, you should see a cooling fan and a heatsink (metal radiator) near the center of the motherboard. In most cases, the cooling fan and heatsink can be removed as one unit by unscrewing four screws near the base of this assembly. There may also be a plastic shroud around the fan that directs air out that will need to be removed first. Once the heatsink is removed, you can see the processor chip, or CPU. To extract it from the motherboard, you will need to flip a small, thin metal switch beside it that holds the chip securely in the socket it sits in. Once you flip this switch, you can carefully lift the cpu from the socket. If you are replacing the CPU, you can reverse these instructions, but you may need to apply some thermal compound to the cpu to help with the conduction and dissipation of heat.

Emachine T2742 wouldnt start, new powersuplly installed green board light on but still no response. switched out ramstick,stiil nothing. switched out main processer still no.hard drive OEM is ok what...

First Pull cmos cell from motherbord for 10 minutes because sometimes low voltage of cmos cell creates this problem .
After remove cmos cell from motherbord for sometime your bios settings goes to defaults.
Then check.
Also check that smps is work fine .
It is square box on back side of cpu .
Reattch ATX power connector from smps to motherbord.
Also make sure that motherbord surface not touch the cabinet.Check motherbord in outside of cpu .

Let me know if you need more assistanse.

Memory +cpu upgrade

No to the cpu you selected. Board would not support that cpu. The RAM you selected would probably work but for how long I couldn't say. With prices pretty low right now it would probably be better to purchase a new motherboard, cpu, & RAM. Hope this helps.

K8S-LA mobo heat sink fell off.

That is the 'Northbridge' chip that provides the I/O interfacing for the main chip. The heat sink is normally held on with glue as you surmised, and should be re-done with a thermal conductive glue. The glue (a silver filled epoxy) is available from MCM electronics or from Mouser. Be sure to thoroughly clean the chip and heat sink before re-gluing.
