Question about Giga Designs G4, 1.3 GHz (5-1213c)

1 Answer

Upgrading processor Hi, I had an external cash failure on my motherboard. I replaced the motherboard with a used yet exact same motherboard I found on line with a 350 MHz processor. I wanted to use the 1.3 GHz processor from the original board. I checked and the firmware has already been upgraded, yet the 1.3 GHz processor wont boot. Reinstalled the old mother board and the processor works. Any suggestions on how to get the replacement board to see the processor?

    I need to add this to my last post. I am upgrading a Power Mac G4, 802 1093A mother board with a 350 MHz processor to a Giga Designs G4, 1.3 GHz processor.

    Unfortunately I found out Giga Designs went out of business and I don't know where to find the jumper settings. I don't think you can get into bios on a Mac like you can on a PC.

Do not know much about mac but can you change settings on M/board by using jumpers to upgrade bus speed etc or in BIOS

    Check your board for small sets of Jumpers also if there is any writing on it saying about reset BIOS
    Try removing M/board battery for 3 to 4 hours this time is sometimes more and sometimes less and should let the BIOS have to reset when you reinsert it. I cannot see MAC M/boards being much different to normal ones

There are a lot of vertical multicoloured lines and 2 grey horizontal lines across my LCD screen and i wondered how i could fix it? Or do I need to have it replaced completely?


HI there,

Before you do anything else, using your own (or a friend's) external monitor, connect your laptop to the monitor and see if the display looks the same as your laptop dos. Sometimes, once the cable is attached, you have to look up along the top of the keyboard at the F keys and see if one looks like a symbol for a monitor. If it does, you need to hold down th fn key and then press that F key to transfer the display signal.

If the external monitor shows a regular display of your laptop's screen, then you know that the problem is either the Screen Inverter, or LCD. As a laptop repair specialist, I always replace both because the inverter is right below the LCD panel behind the "frame" that goes around your LCD (screen).

If the external monitor looks exactly the same as your laptop screen with the same problem, then you know that the Video chip or card on the motherboard is about to fail and needs to be replaced. You then have the choice of replacing the entire motherboard or sending the laptop to a company that specializes in motherboard repair. Many can be found on eBay (I use them myself if the Video chip is soldered to the motherboard).

If the video chip is not soldered, it alone can be replaced. Some of them can be very expensive, all depending on your laptop model.

By going by the above diagnostic method and doing a little research, you'll be well enough informed to make the right decision for your own circumstances. I'll cast my vote that it's only the screen. :)

Good Luck

I have Dell Inspiron 2200 laptop. My laptop's


The lines indicate a slow failure of the LCD and it is progressive. The system can be connected to a VGA monitor and you can select the External display using Fn + F8 key combination.
LCDs are about $100 on EBay

I want upgrad my dell dimensons prtocessor but i dont know anyu that will fit its 479 slot any sugesstions


According to Dell here are the CPUs that your motherboard (if you have the original one) can use:

Intel® Pentium® 4 that runs at 1.80, 2.00, 2.40, or 2.50 GHz internally and 400 MHz externally;


Intel Celeron® that runs at 1.70, 2.00, 2.10, 2.20, or 2.30 GHz internally and 400 MHz externally.

So, if your current CPU is slower than any of the above, you can replace it with something like this Pentium 4 (2 GHz and cheap) or this Celeron (2.3 GHz) new or used (very cheap) this Pentium 4 (2.5 GHz). Looks like 2.5 GHz is the maximum recommended speed for the motherboard.

Motherboard manual required


Access www.MajorGeeks.com and download "Everest Home Edition".

Run it, and it will give you a hyperlink to the manufacturer of the motherboard.

Download the manual from that manufacturer's web-site.
