Here is a link for your mobo

http://www.asrock.com/MB/overview.asp?Model=P4VM800

looks like you can use any intel processor as long as its a socket478 by intel

Check out nvidia agp cards at www.nvidia.com You can get a 512mb card agp.

The bios is plug and play which should not be a problem.

You may need to upgrade the memory also.

HI,

The only Thing To Do, is view both Motherboards, user Manuals.
To see The boards CPU Support List.
It could be to do with, certain Motherboards Supporting, certain CPUs.
I.e a 533mhz cpu, would not run on a Motherboard that supports 400mhz. The Systems Bios, May cause Other Problems.
If your getting a Black Screen, is it a possible Graphics/Ram Problem, Rather Than The CPU ??

Remove the BIOS recovery jumper near the battery on the motherboard and attempt to boot. If the system displays a startup screen, replace the jumper on pins 1 and 2 (pin 1 will have an arrow by it) and configure your bios appropriately.

I want upgrade


hello, i would install the cpu you wish to use, then see how it runs. and then do a bios update. this may work,if not the motherboard may not be compatible with the cpu upgrade, (propriatory equipment sometimes does not allow such upgrades) like hit or miss! i hope this info helps,and you get the dell to accept the faster cpu. good luck! glen

Reset BIOS to default settings.

Check CPU Temperature, Prescott CPUs run hot.

If board is under 3 years old and was a retail box package, it will be under warranty, contact Intel.

Upgrading a processor....


troncho81:
Compatibility: make sure that your motherboard supports the new CPU you have bought. If you are sure it supports it then make sure you have the latest BIOS or any firmware from manufacturer installed.
I am assuming that you have seated the processor properly and it also has a fan properly working over it.
Hope that helped!
