Im wondering if I can put th processor from my 518 in my GX280


With the flood of information you posted I can barely sift through it

Do I assume you are referring to a Dell Inspiron 518 desktop computer's, processor; to go into a Dell Optiplex GX280 desktop computer?

You know Dell is a computer company that was founded on the principle, to give the customer what they wanted; and to be able to choose from several options.

That being stated, in reality I have no idea of what Processor is in YOUR Dell Inspiron 518, or Optiplex GX280.

However, if I am to assume the specs (Specifications), shown in the following link to be true; for Your computer, then the answer is NO,

http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/dell-inspiron-518/4505-3118_7-33186145.html

States an Intel Quad Core Q6600 processor.
(Operates at a maximum frequency rate {'Speed'} of 2.4GigaHertz.
2.4GHz )

Now let's look at the Dell Optiplex GX280 specifications,

http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/dell-optiplex-gx280/4507-3118_7-30998912.html

Both the Inspiron 518, and the Optiplex GX280 use an LGA 775 processor socket, on the motherboard.

This is good because both the Intel Quad Core Q6600, and the Intel Pentium 4, model 540; use the LGA 775 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_T

What is Not good, is the motherboard chipset used on the Optiplex GX280, will Not support a dual core processor; much less a quad core processor.

The motherboard chipset for the Optiplex GX280 is an Intel 915G,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4.2FPentium_D.2FPentium_EE_chipsets

The Intel 915G chipset supports Single Core processors -> ONLY.
Intel Pentium 4, or Intel Celeron D.

Front Side Bus (FSB) support is either 533MegaHertz, or 800MHz.

The Intel Celeron D is NOT a dual core processor,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Celeron#Prescott-256

"The Intel Celeron D processor works with the Intel 845 and 865 chipset families.

The D suffix actually has no official designation, and does not indicate that these models are dual-core.

It is used simply to distinguish this line of Celeron from the previous, lower performing Northwood and Willamette series, and also from the mobile series, the Celeron M (which also uses 3xx model numbers).
Unlike the Pentium D the Celeron D is NOT a dual core processor."

The Inspiron 518 has an Intel G33 motherboard chipset,

http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/dell-inspiron-518/4507-3118_7-33186145.html

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

Scroll down to G33 in the left column.
Read across, and look at the headings above.

Here we see the Intel G33 motherboard chipset, supports dual core, and quad core processors.
Intel Pentium Dual Core, Intel Core 2 Duo, and Intel Core 2 Quad.

Front Side Bus (FSB) support is for processors, that have either an 800MegaHertz FSB, or 1066MHz FSB, or 1333MHz FSB.

Short answer?

If it is a dual core, or quad core Intel processor, the answer is NO.

Do you know how to find out what processor is in the Inspiron 518, and the Optiplex GX280?

1) Are the computers working, and internet ready?

No?

2) Do you know about Anti-Static Procedures, and how to read the sSpec number on the processor?

I accidently plugged in my Dell Inspiron 518 into a 220 v outlet without switching over the red tab on the power supply. I heard a loud boom and smelled smoke. I've since replaced the power supply,...


I really hate to be the bearer of bad news, but your motherboard may have been fried. The power surge was probably too much for it to handle, especially considering this isn't a custom build, so the parts inside of it are cheaper. Contact Dell Support and see if there is anything that they can do for you.

I put this motherboard in a different case and now I need the mb schematics to hook it all back up Dell Inspiron 518 with intel G33 motherboard..the case went bad


It is rare that you actually need schematics to hook up a motherboard in a new case. If you look closely at the connections on the motherboard there is white lettering to let you know where to hook up what connectors.

PWR for power, SATA 0 for the first sata device, etc. If this does not help let me know and I will find the manual or document you need.

My Dell Inspiron 518 will not turn on at all. How can I determine the cause?


There are two most likely problems 1. Your power supply is fried, you can always tell from odd scent that comes from its vents. Try and find a matching power supply that you can use to replace it with just to confirm it is the dead component 2. Your motherboard could have experienced a short circuit that spoiled the circuitry of the board...

My Dell 518 Inspiron will not start. It has power to the tower but simply will not start after pushing the power button. Any suggestions


if the computer is not powering up upon pushing the power button, then do the following in the same order:

Use different cable.
If this does not work, open the case and change the power supply.
If this does not work, then probably the mainboard is faulty.
