Upgrading 478 computer micro

Q: Upgrading 478 computer micro

I have an emachines micro tower box with a Celeron 2.8 chip. Its a 478 machine/motherboard. Im set on memory- 1.5 ram.

My question is I'd like to upgrade as much as possible. Is it possible to upgrade to a core duo with a new motherboard? I've read that there are core duo mobile chips that fit 478, and if I read correctly, they can be used in desktop setups as well.

Can some one help?

Any tips on solving this issue and locating the source of this issue?
It happens at the most unpredictable times when not gaming but when gaming, I sometimes get huge freezes whenever I turn around in GTA 4 like textures and models are still trying to load. Happens in other games too but it's less annoying and obnoxious.


AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz w/ Cooler Master 212 Evo
AMD Sapphire R9 270 No OC
Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3

Currently using 14.4 for my GPU, the newer driver causes artifacting.

A:Micro-stutters/Micro freezing issue

In the past it's usually been the AMD Overdrive/CCC/Fuel program that causes the problem(providing it's actually not the video card failing), try uninstalling the CCC package including the driver, Fuel/Overdrive and installing the driver only.

To install the driver only when starting the install select custom and un-check everything that is not the driver.

Hi i was thinking of purchasing a MP3 player from newegg.com <http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16855705012>

it says the expansion slot is for micro sd, but i was wondering if it would recognize a micro sdhc, because the biggest micro sd i can find is 2gb and i want at least a 4gb, which would mean i would have to use a micro sdhc.

Please post back if you have any suggestions or know if a micro sdhc would work in a micro sd slot

Thanks-Huffman
 

A:micro sdhc compatiblity with micro sd mp3 player

SDHC, µSDHC and miniSDHC will not work in their "regular" counterparts. Whether the slot is only an µSD, rather than just not being marketed as HC capable, ask the manufacturer.

A:Micro ATX Computer Build

Looks like a solid system! I will be buiding something pretty similar soon actually, for my office. I was actually going to go with the Asus micro ATX board with the 6150 graphics, but the one you picked looks quite nice actually. I like that it has the PCI-e slot for future graphics updates should you need it.

I also really like those Qpack cases. Since I will be regularly taking my PC home from the office, I am seriously considering that one. The only thing about it that I am worried about is that PSU. Aspire has built themself a pretty bad reputation for PSUs. It may be worth it to invest some extra money and ditch that PSU for a good one (enermax, antec, fortron etc.).

Good luck!

Hello..
Well, what you can do is simply copy it to internal and then use the HC filemanager to copy it to your microSD, that's what I do.. Thanks.

Here is the story:
I backed up my cell phone contact list onto a Micro SD. Then using the Micro SD adapter, I insert it into the computer. When I open the "my computer"/explorer window it won't even recognize that there is a card in the reader slot. Why is that? I can't format it, obviously, because it won't recognize it.

I've seen similar posts about issues with Micro SD adapters not working, but there aren't very many replies other than buying another piece of hardware in an attempt to fix the issue. Is there another way that doesn't cost more money?
 

A:Micro SD adapter unrecognizable by computer

Try it in another machine, or try a different adapter.

The card itself may be defective, so if the above don't work, try a new card, or format it after repartitioning it if you want to try using it again.

My computer crashed! when I was reloading op system, programs, office would not activate stating it was already installed on another computer. Had a hard time with microsoft getting it reactivated.
In the future when I am wiping and reloading a system should I uninstall office before formating? Does this tell microsoft that that copy is no longer active on a system so it can be reactivated later with no problems.
And if I dont have a copy of the original CD should I use key finder to get Key code for reinstalling? And is the key code information stored on each CD or is that just used when microsoft activates it? What I am asking is can I use an activated copy of office (CD) to activate a different key code. ?? Hope this makes sence.

I recently purchased a new GM Micro SD card for my lost computer? Micro SD card in Droid Incredible I backed the information from my old card to my Gateway DX PC and put the new card in the Micro SD card on the front of my computer so I could transfer all the data from the Micro SD card lost in computer? old card to it But apparently the card somehow dissipated into the depths of my computer because it wouldn t recognize the card and when I went to take the card out of the slot there was nothing there The slot is completely empty I looked all around the computer to make sure that it hadn t somehow fallen onto the floor but it was nowhere to be found I have no idea how this could have happened maybe I put the card int he slot wrong but that is what happened Has this ever happened to anyone else and is there any way to retrieve the card without tearing my computer apart nbsp

A:Micro SD card lost in computer?

Micro-SD cards are tiny so they are easy to lose, especially if you shove it in the wrong slot. You could use a flashlight to see if you can find it in any of the reader slots and if you do, turn your computer off, unplug it's main power, flip the PSU power switch off and wait a couple minutes for the electricity to drain out then take a small pair of needle-nose pliers and try to fish it out.

You probably put it in the miniSD slot because I've never seen a memory card reader that actually had a slot for microSD, it's usually an adapter that looks like a standard SD card that has a slot for the microSD or a USB adapter that has a slot for it.

Every time I listen to music or watch a video my computer seems to freeze or stutter for just a second. During this time the music screeches and everything hangs. I don't know if this only occurs when listening to music or watching a video, but it is the only time I notice.

I have tried disk defrag, updating drivers, cleaning my registry, disabling AVG resident shield and nothing seems to work. It is getting really annoying, so if anyone has any suggestion please let me know and thank you in advance.

A:Computer Micro Freezing/Stuttering

Hi -

I suggest playing a song or video and shortly following the stuttering/freezing right- clicking on the taskmbar (at bottom) and selecting 'Task manager'.

This will open a new window in which J want you to switch to the 'Processes' tab at the top. Then expand the window and click on the bar that says 'Mem Usage'. The highest process should be listed at the top, in your reply post the top 4 processes along with their name and memory usage. It might be that your CPU is struggling to keep up.

Regards,

- Jon

I want to buy another case.. i'm not exactly happy with the one my Aspire X1200 came with. Inadequate power supply/room for vid card. It's a low-end computer and i'm simply going to make do with it.

Are there any problems in doing this? Anything that would make it 'impossible' or something like that? Any tips?
 

A:'Micro computer' to a regular case?

I'm not exactly certain what you mean by the title. Anyway, here's the answer to the question I think you asked.

But, there are 2 different spec boards in common use. ATX which is about 12 x 9.6 inches, and Matx (M= micro) @ about 9.6 x 9.6 (some Matx boards are a bit smaller).

Matx boards mount on the same bolt pattern as ATX, but due to the smaller size, they only use about 2/3rds of the holes.

So, both ATX & Matx will fit in an ATX size case. But ATX will NOT fit in a case designed for Matx boards.

Hey,

I recently bought a Nintendo DS and a DSTT card so that i could have all my games on the one card. This works by having a NDS Game Card that has a Micro SD slot in it that allows you to put game files on it, allowing you to have multiple games on the one card. When i first got the card i was able to connect the Micro SD card to my computer using the USB Adapter that came with the card. Now when i try and connect it my computer doesn't think anything is plugged in. I've tried putting it in another Adapter and another computer, each failing to recognise the card. The card still works fine in the Nintendo DS but i can't get my computer to recognise it when i plug it in through USB?

A few months ago I got a micro SD card and added songs to it for my mp3 player, and all was well. I didn't really use it over the summer so I just found out now that it is totally screwed up. I put it in the adapter and put that in my laptop and it can read all the songs and play them and stuff, but that is not the story for my mp3 player. My mp3 player detects that it is there, and sees how big it is as well as how much memory it has free, but now it can't tell that it has music on it, and it can't play it. Any ideas, I'm going on a long plane ride at like 5am tomorrow, so a quick response would be great.

If you have RSIT already on your computer, please run it again. Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT. Click Continue at the disclaimer screen. Please post the contents of log.txt. Thank you for your patience.Please see Preparation Guide for use before posting about your potential Malware problem. If you have already posted this log at another forum or if you decide to seek help at another forum, please let us know.

A:Abnormally slow computer that stalls, with new Trend Micro Internet Security

The slowness seems to have something to do with Trend Micro Internet Security 2008, as when I uninstalled it everything was fast again. In talking with technicians at Trend Micro, they said it likely has to do with interference from previously installed anti-virus/anti-malware/spyware programs that were incompletely removed (and which can't be removed completely). Does this seem likely? I tried to re-install TM Internet Security 2008, and now the firewall doesn't work. It may have to do with the previous uninstall not removing the firewall 'drivers' for my wireless and wired network connections. Also, the computer is again slow, though not as bad as before. Do you think it is worth trying to get this working with your or Trend Micro's help, or should I use different anti-virus/anti-malware/anti-spyware programs? If the latter, then which ones?

Hello and welcome to the forums!My secret agent name on the forums is SweetTech (you can call me ST for short), it's a pleasure to meet you. I am very sorry for the delay in responding, but as you can see we are at the moment being flooded with logs which, when paired with the never-ending shortage of helpers, resulted in the delayed responding to your thread.I would be glad to take a look at your log and help you with solving any malware problems.If you have since resolved the issues you were originally experiencing, or have received help elsewhere, please inform me so that this topic can be closed. If you have not, please adhere to the guidelines below and then follow instructions as outlined further below:Logs from malware removal programs (OTL is one of them) can take some time to analyze. I need you to be patient while I analyze any logs you post. Please remember, I am a volunteer, and I do have a life outside of these forums.

I am going to stick with you until ALL malware is gone from your system. I would appreciate it if you would do the same. From this point, we're in this together ;)
Because of this, you must reply within three days failure to reply will result in the topic being closed!
Please do not PM me directly for help. If you have any questions, post them in this topic.
Lastly, I am no magician. I will try very hard to fix your issues, but no promises can be made. Also be aware that some infections are so severe that you might need to resort to reformatting and reinstalling your operating system.

Hi cfitzarl,
welcome back, I only know of you from your great posts in the gallery I have a couple of suggestions for you, if you don't mind coming in under budget. the Gigabyte board is a solid well performing board. the DFI is a personal favorite of mine, its more of a high performance board at a good price. the DFI board also has 2 pcie 2.0 slots if you decide that you want to up your gaming....uh...game..lol.
the HD 4850 will give you good performance up to 1680x1050 resolution with most games on high settings. a notch up from that would be the HD 4870 for good performance at 1920x1080. and yes we have pcie v2.0 now. its not a huge deal yet as no card out to date saturates the bandwidth of pcie 1.0 yet....although Nvidia is coming out with a monster card (the GTX 300) that might challenge that. anyway i own a similar DFI board and 3 of the 4850's and they perform wonderfully. from what needs you described, this seems like it may be a good fit and pairing for your x2 6000, let me know what you think and if I can help.

could you give more specific information about your system?
cpu-z is a good, free and easy tool to retrieve valuable information from your system
http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

the cpu might be ok but would be good to know if it is a celeron, dual core, hyper threaded, etc
also, what brand and model motherboard is need in order to recommend you any ram upgrade and/or video card..
you should be able to pick up a decent video card for under $100. something like a nvidia gt 240 or better a gt 430.
you should upgrade to 2 gb of ram with decent performance or 4gb if the price is right.

I am thinking of upgrading my Compaq (667 Celeron 512RAM) with another proc.

I want to have a PIII or PIV and over 1.gig hrtz

Does anyone havbe a guess on cost and how hard it will be to do?

A:upgrading computer

First you need to make sure if that motherboard of yours will seat something like a 1ghz+ processor. That will make a world of difference in terms of difficulty and cost. It might cost as little as 120-150 dollars for that processor if you shop around, and only require you to pop out that old processor and heatsink. But, if the motherboard doesn't support your new processor, you'll have to buy another motherboard, which will cost you a good 100-150 plus the processor cost. Also, installing a motherboard is a big project if your sorta new, as I suspect you might be. I recently had a bad time with a motherboard (eeeh...we won't reflect on that). However, make sure you get decent cooling for that beast!

A:Help in upgrading computer

I would say adding more ram and upgrading your vid card would make a pretty big difference. Especially more ram for the type of work you are doing.

Also if it has been a very long time without a reformat of your hard drive, you might notice a big difference in wiping your drive and re-installing Windows.

I'm sorry but none of your NewEgg links made it into your post. They have "..." in the cut/paste. Can you try editing/relinking or describing what the parts are?

It's also difficult to compare ATI and NVIDIA cards directly as they have different features and strengths/weaknesses. Putting these aside:
X800 XT ~ 6800 GT
X850 XT PE ~ 6800 Ultra

I do not believe NewEgg ships to Canada, but you may want to check. The only Canadian hardware source I know of is TigerDirect and they do not have nearly as good prices as NewEgg.

Which, when I get them into the box, will put me at 5 gigs of RAM, which is overkill I know, but the 2 gig sticks are just way too cheap and my ram at least will be future proofed.

Anyways, is there anything I need to know about the interaction of the ram and the Vista? It's the Home Premium version that comes with the PC.

Also, should I get the computer formatted and up and running, then install the 2 new sticks of ram, or just put them in there and boot with them the very first time?

Also, I want to upgrade my computer with more RAM. Right now I have 512MB of DDR RAM. The computer manual says its expandable to 1GB of RAM, can I go higher without damaging anything? My dad's IBM told him not to go higher than 256MB and he's running 384MB with no problems. Thanx in advance.
 

A:upgrading computer

What HP Pavilion do you own? With Brand Name systems its best to contact the manufacturer to see what will work when it comes to CPU's. Generally these systems don't provide as much upgradeability aas opposed to customed built systems.

As for the RAM, this is depenedent on the chipset - chipsets only support a certain amount. You can check at www.crucial.com to see what they say for RAM type and amount.

The outgoing Intel CPUs/chipsets/motherboards are looking like the real bargain at the moment, if you don't mind the "dead" socket thing.

Hi and welcome to TSG.

That new set of kit should definately give you a performance increase over your current setup, however there are things that you must look at / consider.

1) Exactly what make and model power supply are you going to use? Your current one may not be up to the job.
2) That board only supports DDR2 RAM, it would be better to look for a DDR3 board for future proofing a bit more.
3) Its a MicroATX board, ensure your current case can support it.

A:Upgrading my computer

Junk the computer.

Thats a waste of $160 (video card & RAM) for a computer that was built slow back in 2004~2005... so those parts would not be usable in a new computer.

$400 for this Compaq AMD would be better spent... too bad its not using the AMD chipset. You could build a better computer for about the same money... but since your nervous you just may want to upgrade the Compaq. You maybe able to sell your OLD PC for about $50 or so to go towards the upgrade/replacement.

There is nothing you can easily / worth-while reuse in a new built/parts.

If you built yourself (rough cost) similar to the Compaq (Windows7 costs the most):
$60 - AMD X2 CPU
$65 - Gigabyte AMD 740 board
$60 - 2GB DDR2 800Mhz ($80~90 for 4GB)
$60 - 450~500w (low-cost PSU - by my standards) or $70 for a 450w quality unit.
$60 - 500GB HD
$30 - DVD-RW drive
$40 - mouse & keyboard (far better quality than what comes with a desktop)
$50 - case (quality) - cheap stuff starts at $15... and looks cheap.
==========================
$425 Base parts
$110 Windows 7 Home OEM (OUCH - told ya)
---------------------------------------------
$535 Complete computer

$ 75 ATI 4670 video card PCIe

$610 Total

If you bought the Compaq and upgraded it to the custom build:
$400 + $135 (PSU and same 4670 video card) = $535.
*note: The desktop self-built system has more options and slightly faster CPU)

So thats the choices... look at how much MORE it would cost over just trying to upgrade the OLD computer. Which was about $210.... so for $325~400 extra, you'd get a much faster, modern computer... the HD is much faster, helps.

$210 = improved game graphics, but no upgrade path. CPU/PC will never go faster.
$535 = Upgraded Compaq... limited upgrade (CPU limited)
$610 = Clean hand-build... can easily upgrade to a X3 or X4 core CPU.

My son is upgrading his computer, what is the best manner in which transfer the XP OS to his new hard drive?

A:Upgrading Computer

I'd say...clone the hard drive.

End product is a drive containing everything on old drive...that will be bootable when it replaces the old drive.

I would then take the old drive, delete everything on it...reformat it and use it for additional storage, backups, etc.

Hi there, novice here.

If someone is thinking of upgrading an old computer, what things limit a computer? IE, i know computers have limits on how much ram they can handle, what limits a computer in what processor it can handle, memory disk etc.

I've had my eye on an GeForce GTX 660 2GB for quite some time.I have a standard Dell XPS 8500 right now and I'm planning on upgrading it sometime. Some concerns I have are if I will need modular power for this as well as if my computer will be able to handle this card? It currently has a 460W power supply, but some have told me I will need modular power in order to run this card. I am positive that it won't bottleneck considering I run an I7 processor right now. I could use another computer expert's opinion on if it would be able to work with this card! Thanks!
 

A:Upgrading my computer

I'm not sure why you were told, you need a modular power supply. Modular is helpful in cable management for cosmetic purposes. Modular is nice but it is not a requirement. I currently have a MSI GTX 660 and my power supply is Corsair CX600V2 600W, which is not modular.

Looking at the specifications for Dell XPS 8500, I don't foresee an issue. The GTX 660 requires a 450W power supply, and your PSU supplies 460W.

By the way, were you the one I replied to on Newegg?

Thread for a mate.

He has a

http://www.packardbell.co.uk/products/at-home/desktops/istart/istart-mc-2369/productsheet-PB49303801-802.html

and is trying to upgrade up to get a 8800 GTS. I'm not much of an expert myself, but him being on a tight budget, getting an 8800 gts would it mean upgrading his mobo? As far as i saw it said that mobo supported 16x pci, so i assumed he could run it on that board.

all the specs of the comp are in that link above. Any help would be appreciated.

Jamibi.
 

A:Upgrading Computer. Need help.

He should be able to run it but he might have to upgrade his power supply. I believe the 8800GTS requires a 400W or greater power supply with at least 26 amps on the +12V rail(s).

I couldn't find any power supply info on Packard Bell's site. Open the case and see if you can read the sticker on the side of the power supply. If you can't see it, it might be on the top of the power supply in which case you'll have to remove the PSU to read the sticker.

RAM: 8GB DDR2-800

Hello Tech Guy community!

I have an eMachines W1050 Desktop in fully working condition with all the factory parts in it.
I want to spend no more than 500 dollars.

Is it possible to upgrade this computer with a new motherboard, video card, RAM, and CPU (or anything else) with this amount of money and be able to play most current games between mid-high detail running at at least 30 fps?

I would like this computer to end up with at least an i7 processor and a video card with at least 512mb of dedicated memory good enough to play, for example, Diablo III on max settings using a 1366x768 resolution setting, DDR3 RAM (any amount over 1GB) and a hard drive with a minimum of 250GB.

I am not a expert computer person. I need help. I decided to upgrade my computer instead of buying another one. I would like to start with the processor. If someone would be so kind and please tell me if I need to replace the motherboard also if i want to upgrade my processor.

My specs are:
AMD Anthlon XP 1600

Also, what processor would you recommend I upgrade to and if another motherboard is needed what would that be.

Thank you,
 

A:Upgrading my computer

If you go to the manufacturer's site for the motherboard it will have a list of all the supported processors, just find the fastest to maximise your systems performance.

If it is an older motherboard you may find the maximum increase in performance that you can achieve replacing the processor simply won't be worth the money.

There are a huge number of motherboards to choose from, what you need to decide first is what you are going to use the system for, if it is going to be for gaming then you will be looking for a fairly high performance mobo and CPU. You should carefully check that any new board will be compatible with your existing memory or you will also need to replace that. Likewise with the power supply. Then if you will be gaming you will also need a good graphics card.

If the PC will just be for general everyday use then you should find a package available from most good suppliers that will include a mobo, memory and CPU. Then you just need to check your power supply.

Things to watch out for. If you stick with the old power supply make sure the connectors are compatible with any new mobo. Another problem that can occur with a new mobo is the front panel connectors may need to be altered.

Any more questions, please ask. It will help if you can provide the make and model of your existing power supply and motherboard.

A:Upgrading computer

Without upgrading the motherboard you won't be able to add the AMD FX6200 as the socket type is different (the FX6200 is AM3+ whereas your motherboard appears to LGA775), and that motherboard (Dell 0N826N) only supports up to 8GB DDR2 RAM.
You'd also have to find out the wattage of your PSU if you're looking at adding a GPU, from what I can find your machine only has a 250W PSU but I may have that wrong.

Ya get a Geforce 7800GS AGP card. It is about the best you can do on AGP. Other than that you need to do a complete overhaul to goto PCI-Express video cards. I just made the jump but the 7800gs did very well on most games @ 1280X1024. It will need a little more power so I would make sure your Power supply can handle it.

A:Need help upgrading Computer

You purchased a asus prebuilt computer with a A10 apu......it was not designed to be a serious gaming computer
Does it have a pic-e slot on the motherboard?
If so you could add a gaming video card....but then u would have to upgrade the power supply to power the new card!!
It has 8 gb's of ram so u are good there

hi, was just wondering how i could upgrade my desktop computer, i have two emachine dual core desktops (E4252) but we don't use the other one so was wondering if i could like hook up the two computers for double the power?, is this even possible (i don't mind taking the other one apart but don't really want to spend too much money
 

A:upgrading computer

I requested this thread be moved to Hardware.

You can't connect 2 computers together for "double the power". It doesn't work that way. eMachines are very low-end computers with puny power supplies and minimal cooling. The only safe options would be memory and hard drive.

Hello Chips, could it be that the 580 is running out of Vram? What does it have 1.5gb?

Have you been able to monitor the CPU and GPU to see how much of what it's using? That should track down what you need to improve.

If it is running out of Vram then I would recommend a 4GB 670 or 680 depending on how much you want to spend.

Hi,

I currently have

Operating system : Microsoft windows XP professional (5.1, build 2600)
BIOS : Award Medallion v6.0
Processor : Intel Pentium III, ~800MHz
Memory : 256MB RAM
Video card : All-in-wonder 128 pro AGP (from ATI and its approx.total memory is 32 MB)
DirectX 9.0
Disk drive : QUANTUM FIREBALL AS20.5
Motherboard : I think its an ASUS mother board

Can I upgrade it to run games like Battlefield 2? I do not want to buy a new computer even though it is from 2001.., I've heard I can buy a new AMD 64 Sempron CPU to make it better and a new motherboard and a new video card and more RAM and maybe another hard drive I live in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and my budget is around 400$ :unch:

Try to explain something to me because I don't know THAT much about computers, believe it or not this is a 10 years old typing this message. :hotouch:
 

A:Upgrading an old computer!

I bet if you look around hard enough, want ads, your local (independent) computer store, ebay, you could find a P4 used with a decent video card
and still be able to grab a couple stix of ram with the budget you have.
Sometimes the P3 case will not support a P4 motherboard, so you would need a new case as well. Shop around, lots of people upgrade and sell nice comps all the time. Happy hunting!

okay, so I have a Studio XPS 7100. And I would like to upgrade the graphics card (I do not know anything about computers). As far as I know, I would also need to upgrade my power supply. I would want to be able to play BattleField 3 on high settings. but as I said before, I know nothing about computers.

My questions:

What graphics card would I need?
What power supply would I need?
Would I need to upgrade anything else?
How do I know what parts will fit in my computer?
 

A:I need help upgrading my computer?

You would need to upgrade the power supply to support any of the current addon video cards.

That model uses a standard mid-tower case, so card size shouldn't be a factor for most cards. All you would need is a PCI-E slot on the motherboard and adequate power.

As for card selection, I'd recommend the fastest card that fits your budget.

Ok, my computer is really outdated & I'm going to give you guys some computer specs to see what I most need upgraded & how much should all of this cost to get better hardware!

Intel Celeron processor 600Mhz
64 MB SDRAM memory with up to 11MB allocated to video memory
Hard Drive 10.2 GB Ultra DMA hard drive
Sony Cd burner!

I've been thinking to upgrade the Memory to 256 SDRAM & upgrading the 600 Mhz to 2 ghz or something..

I can't really afford a new computer right now! Plus I'm 18 just graduated out of high school with no job YET! My parents won't upgrade, they said if I want to it will have to come out of my graduation money. Right now I have about $165.00. Would that be enough to upgrade the following two things?
