Assuming you are running Vista; you can find out what the problem may be by going to control panel> system & maintanence> administrative tools> event viewer>windows logs. look in all the catagories to see if there are any clues as to your problem, but normally i would say it's a graphics driver error or processor overheating, especially if you have onboard graphics and not a seperate dedicated graphics card.

Need new motherboard


1) Motherboards are rated by size, and shape, by a Form Factor.

Common Form Factor for motherboards is ATX.
ATX form factor is 12 Inches by 9.6 Inches, or 305mm by 244mm.
(9.6 Inches is about 9 and 9/16ths Inches. -> .625 is 9/16ths of an Inch)

Next in line for common motherboard Form Factors, is the Micro-ATX form factor. 9.6 Inches by 9.6 Inches. (244mm by 244mm)

Using these variables, the next factor that needs to be checked, is if the motherboard has a Socket T processor socket.
Also known as the LGA 775 processor(CPU) socket.

Now you need to find a motherboard, that has a motherboard chipset, that will support the Intel Core2 Quad Q6700.

[FixYa has just undergone site changes. I am not able to post a link, as a direct link; at the moment.
I'll have to ask you to copy the URL (Link), paste it in your address bar (http://), and press the Enter key ]

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

The following is a list of Intel motherboard chipsets, that support an Intel Core2 Quad Q6700,

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

Start with the Intel 975X chipset. Scroll down through the various chipsets, and see which ones support Intel Quad Core processors (CPU's)

The following is a list of Nvidia chipsets, that support the Intel Core2 Quad Q6700,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_chipsets#For_Intel_processors_3

Start with the 700 series, go to the 900 series.

The following is a list of ATI chipsets, that support the Intel Core2 Quad Q6700,

I wouldn't use a motherboard with a VIA chipset. Just my personal opinion.

You also need to find a motherboard, that will use the current Ram Memory you have. Unless you wish to move up to DDR3 Sdram ram memory, and are not currently using it now.

One example,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1853614&CatId=4658

Using DDR2 Sdram ram memory? Then this is one example,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157337

[Just in case; How to Copy and Paste:

Let's use the last link as an example,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157337

Put your mouse cursor on the h, of the http://
Press, and hold the left mouse button down. Slide your mouse across, so the mouse cursor goes across the link. (The link is a URL)

The link is now highlighted in Blue. Hold the CTRL key down, and tap once on the c key. (Small case -> c )
Put your mouse cursor in your address bar. (Starts with http:// at the top of your page)
Press the v key. (Paste key)
Now press the Enter key ]

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
(Unless that is scr-ewed up too, lol!)

Intel 946 mother board


You need at least 1GB of Ram Memory, and should have 2GB.
[512MB + 512MB = 1024MB or also stated as 1GB ]

The - Intel 946 - designator you have listed refers to the motherboard chipset.
It is either an Intel 946PL, or Intel 946GZ motherboard chipset,

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

You can see the list of processors it supports. Also look at the Front Side Bus speed it supports (FSB), and note 65nm architecture for the processor.

As for office work, or surfing the internet; more Ram Memory will help.
For editing videos, or intense games though, you need a decent graphics card.

What processor can i use with 446476-001 system board


The HP 446476-001 laptop motherboard, or also stated as HP motherboard used for the HP Pavilion dv6000 series of Notebook PC's;

A) Has an Intel 965PM motherboard chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_mobile_chipset

Has a;

B) Socket P processor socket, for Intel processors

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

Using this information you know;

1) That the Intel PM965 motherboard chipset supports
Intel Core 2 Duo processors,

with either a 533MegaHertz Front Side Bus, or a 667MHz FSB, or an 800MHz FSB.

[Note*

The motherboard chipset is the Northbridge, and Southbridge chip, for YOUR motherboard technology.

(Does not apply to motherboards that support the Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 processors)

The Northbridge part number is Intel 82965PM.

You won't see this part number on a chipset, because the Northbridge chip is under a small finned heatsink.

The Southbridge chip is an Intel ICH8-M
Part number is 82801HM. This you should see on a chipset ]

2) That the processor socket is a Socket P.

So you need an Intel Core2 Duo processor, with either a 533MHz, or 667MHz, or 800MHz FSB, and fits in a Socket P processor socket.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

(You may, or may not need a BIOS update )

Dimensions


Dell Support > Dimension 8300 Desktop PC > Main Support Page,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim8300/sm/index.htm

Left-click on - Technical Specifications - in the list.

Left-click on - Physical - in the list.

Height: How tall the computer tower is. Outside edge to outside edge measurement.
Width: How wide the computer tower is. Outside edge to outside edge measurement.
Depth: How long the computer tower is. Outside edge to outside edge measurement.

If you meant Specifications instead;


A) Processor:
Intel Celeron, or Pentium 4, that uses a Socket 478 processor socket.
Either a 533MegaHertz Front Side Bus, or an 800MHz FSB.

(Dell also indicates the Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition processors are supported. Too expensive for what you get in return)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

B) Ram Memory:
DDR Sdram that operates at 333MHz, or 400MegaHertz.
PC2700 and PC3200 respectively.

Maximum TOTAL Amount is 4GigaByte
There are 4 Ram Memory slots. EACH slot has a Maximum Amount of 1GB.

C) Motherboard Chipset:

Northbridge chip: Intel 875P. (Part Number Intel 82875P )

(For Intel the Northbridge chip is the MCH, for this particular Northbridge chipset.
Memory Controller Hub)

The Southbridge chip is an Intel 82801EB (Part Number) or Intel 82801ER (P/N)
Commonly known as the Intel ICH5, or Intel ICH5R.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

In the chart go down on the right side to - 875P

Looking across, and at the headings, you can see under the heading - Processors, that there are more Intel processors supported, than just the Intel Celeron's, and Pentium 4's.

Core2 Duo, Core2 Quad, Core2 Extreme, Pentium Dual Core, and Xeon.

Problem is they don't use a Socket 478 processor socket.
All except for the Xeon ( 'Zee-On' ) use an LGA 775 processor socket.
Xeon models use a Socket 603, or Socket 604, or LGA 771, processor socket.

It is just processors that the Intel 875P chipset will support.

D) Graphics Expansion Slot:

AGP
Uses AGP 8X graphics cards.

My Wifi is not working. My laptop sound is scratchy. I want to upgrade my processor from celeron to core 2 duo which one i should select for cpu upgrade?


Two main things to know before you can attempt a Processor upgrade.

1) What Processor socket is on the motherboard?

2) What motherboard chipset is on the motherboard?
(Northbridge and Southbridge chip. Unless it's a motherboard that supports Intel Core 13, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 processors)



According to specifications I found online just now, the BenQ Joybook A53 comes with an,
Intel Core2 Duo T7250 processor,

http://laptops.techfresh.net/benq-joybook-a53/

Scroll down.

(Only 512MB's of DDR2 Sdram (SO-DIMM) ram memory that operates at 667Megahertz?
{ PC2-5300} Yecch! You need at LEAST 1GB of ram memory. (512MB + 512MB = 1GB.
2GB would be best)

http://www.laptop-software.com/benq/benq-joybook-a53-features-and-specifications/

    Mother board problem


    sounds like video card driver issue...ensure driver is correct by looking at video card in device manager. Also ensure that system interrupts are being allocated properly.
