Hi!

I want to buy a cpu that has windows 2000 or XP. Where would you suggest that I go to get a good price for the cpu only? I would even consider refurbished.

Most used computer stores will have Windows XP installed on their computers. They often have a warranty just in case. The other way is to look in local newspapers under classified.

I need to install better processor for sony vaio pcv-rx741


http://www.price.ro/specificatii_amd_athlon_xp_1800+_1.53_ghz_80.htm
This is the CPU you have inside from the manufacturer..It is a rather slow one ..It is an AMD model ..with 1.53 G speed and what it is matter to you it is on a socket A type ..
What you need to do is to get another cpu on same socket with more speed ..and also a larger catch memory ..(it is important for to run smoother and faster .
I don't think you will find any cpu on this socket larger than 2.2 G ..buit it is an improvement if you want to speed it up a little ..
The ram memory should be upgraded too ..and will support up to 2x 512 DDr1 on pc 2100 ..This will allow you to install more things and will even run windows xp if you get 1 G of ram on it ..but not very fast ..
http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K7/AMD-Athlon%20XP%203200+%20-%20AXDA3200DKV4E.html
here is a list with the fastest cpu on this socket..
To buy one ..I think you can ask to local computer store..usually they can guide you ..but look at the price too ..cause like it is said on the site I linked..there are other less expensive with almost similar performances ..

Like to replace my processor which is AMD Duron 900MHz to Motherboard Gigabyte 7VM333M-RZ. Which current processors are compatible with this board? Please advise. I want a current fast processor.


Hi, As far as I can see, this motherboard is very old, and the faster processor you could get would be around 1.8 ghz, single core. Here's the list of supported processors:
http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-Gigabyte/7VM333M-RZ.html
What I would suggest is that you buy a motherboard/cpu combo, then you could get a quad core with a recent motherboard for less than 150-200$. Of course you'd have to be willing to change your motherboard, but unfortunately, you're not gonna get a good processor with your current motherboard, and computer parts (like Ram, hard drives, video cards) are going to cost more and more for their rarety, while they are less performant.
Best of luck to you!

I need good processor what is better intel pentium or amd athlon?


Hi nestorjnk, if your question is in referance to the Intel D915GAG motherboard you can only use an Intel CPU. The supported CPU list for this motherboard can be found on the link below;
http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d915gag/sb/CS-026959.htm
This is the highest CPU that can run on the D905GAG motherboard; (Click the link).

You must also have the bios version, 0391 or greater to support this CPU. Click on this link;

Your question of which CPU is better varys. I like AMD CPU's.
Others like Intel. Its more about personal likes. AMD's can take more heat than an Intel. Both require decent air flow.

Enjoy nestorjnk!
Thank you for using fixya.

Iv just been given a gigabyte GA-8PE800 motherboard


Gigabyte actually has a very good website. I pasted a link below to the CPU support list.

http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/CPUSupport_Model.aspx?ProductID=1619

As far as what would be the best to buy I would say the closest to the top that you can afford ignoring the P4-Extreme CPUs.

Server starts to boot then powers off.


Check your CPU cooler. If it is not properly mounted your CPU/s could be overheating. There is a safety mechanism in Pentium chips that shut down the processor when it reaches a certain temperature. If your heat sinks are mounted correctly, check your Heat sink fans. Ball bearing fans are notorious for making a little noise then quitting.

Hi,

DDR 333 memory is DDR PC2700, I believe. It might be hard to find a new MB that will work with that. You'll probably have to buy new memory. You'll also need a new CPU fan, unless you know the Socket type of your existing MB. But you should replace the fan anyway on a new CPU/MB install. You should buy as much memory as you can afford.

Try looking HERE and see if anything is in your price range.

Hope that helps...
