I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My Mobo says the Sempron 3000+ is the highest CPU that it will take, I currently have a Sempron 2800+ is it worth upgrading can get a second hand CPU for about 10 finding it difficult to see what the benefit might be

My Vista number is 2.7 held back by CPU performance

I have an ASUS K8V-VM MB running an AMD Sempron 3000+ processor, rev. DH-E6. I believe this is a 64 bit processor and want to know if it will run the XP Pro 64 bit OS. Apparently not all "64 bit" processors will run it.

Presently I have 1 gig of RAM but the board will take 2 gigs if that's needed to run the OS. Thanks in advance for your guidance!

I am interested to buy a $264 Acer T120 desktop with the following configuration because of the low price:
Sempron 3000+ 2.0Ghz, 40Gb HD, 256MB RAM, CD ROM, built-in LAN interface, audio and video (No OS installed).

I will use the PC for word processing, surfing, burning CDs and Photoshop.

Will I see a a significant improvement in terms of performance compared to a similarly configured Pentium III 667 Mhz used PC?

I may try doing video editing and learn how to do PC-based music recording. I'm willing to buy extra memory, bigger HD and DVD writer for this purpose. I don't want to buy/build a high-end PC now because it might take me some time to learn the editing and recording. By that time, computer parts may have dropped significantly. So I guess it's better to buy/build the configuration that I want later.

Thanks in advance for any input.

My title pretty much sums up my question. Its my Mother's desktop pc which she wants to keep rather than buying a new machines altogether. I've been told that I need to upgrade the RAM to 2Gb which confirm is possible.

Are there any other issues I need to think about before buying 8.1 and extra RAM ?

Mum only uses the machine for email/msn/online banking and shopping. She's not been a big user of streaming videos as such but that could be a bonus if that's also possible for her to watch Youtube or BBC news.

Hope you can help with any advice gratefully received thanks.


A:Will AMD Sempron 3000+ 1.8Ghz 736 mb RAM work with 8.1 ?

Unfortunately, the Sempron 3000+ cpu doesn't support compareexchange128, which is a requirement of Windows 8.1.

If I wanted to keep that machine working for a bit, I would install Ubuntu or Linux Mint.

I have an MSI K8MM3 motherboard with AMD Sempron 3000 processor.

Each time I power it up, it works for about 1/2 hour and then cuts out, usually when the CPU temp reaches about 31 degrees C. Is there a way to stop this happening, or have I just got to buy a super powerful fan? 31 degrees C doesn't seem a very high temperature to me. Could the 'quiet n' cool' feature be causing this ?

Help !!

A:MSI K8MM3 / AMD SEMPRON 3000 cutout

31 is quite cool - but it may not be reported correctly.

Try the scientific method and touch the Heatsink as near the base as possible after it's been running a few minutes.

If it's unconfortably hot, that's your culprit. remove the Heatsink, clean the gunk off it and the CPU thoroughly, and use some decent thermal paste. Just apply some about the size if a grain of rice to the center of the CPU and reinstall the heatsink..

Whilst you are in there, see if the Northbridge is getting hot too {the other heatsink}. Look at the Capacitors {little barrel looking components on the board} and make sure none of the tops look bulging or rusty.

Is all that checks out OK - try running Memtest and verify your RAM isn't the culprit

It is a Lenovo 3000 N200 - 3 years old
Money a bit tight but would get a new laptop if this is too expensive to fix - An IT guy looked at breifly said I need a new hardrive. My battery also needs changed as it needs to be constantly plugged in.

Any tips on this situation would be greatly appreciated? any way I can fix this myself or is it a complete gonner? Also any price guides on getting it fixed? Hardrive and battery cost?
I have seen some laptops for 300 pounds on


A:BSOD - Lenovo 3000 n200

On the Battery - I've had good luck and bad luck on buying batteries on eBay. Would I do it again? Yes. Would I go through with returning the battery if it failed as opposed to just eating the cost if it happened again? Yes. haha. That one was my bad but the people I dealt with were very considerate.

The downfalls - I've had a 'non-factory' battery purchased off of ebay work wonders for my Dell Inspiron 6400 but I bought one for my wife's Compaq CQ-60 and the battery connectors did not make good enough contact within the laptop. I could have sent it back but didn't and just bought an aftermarket one from Batteries Plus.

For your battery just do a quick search on eBay for 'battery' and your particular laptop brand & model to get a pricing idea.

The hard drive shouldn't be difficult if you wanted to replace it yourself however it would also involve you installing the operating system, finding all of the drivers for your system to run, etc. If that is something you are willing to do or you feel confident in doing I suggest it. I would use a good computer of a friends or relative's to acquire all of the drivers prior to taking this on yourself though. If you find it difficult to find (at least the major drivers like NIC, VGA, Sound) then I would probably suggest having a tech do it. It is no good to you to waste your time trying to fix it yourself and then taking it too a tech firm afterwards and then they take your money too. Save your time and just spend the money. (Depending on which is more important and at what point they switch importance).

HDD's aren't at all expensive. They are more expensive for laptops but they are really not that bad. or are the two places I usually go but there may be others on this forum that have different suppliers and I would request that they provide their ideas as well.

I hope this at least gets you a start.

I'd love for you to be able to take this on yourself but I also realize how disappointing, discouraging, and frustrating it can be when a person realizes that they just wasted 'x amount of time' trying to fix it themselves when they could have spent a little extra $$ and saved their time. I just want you to be the one to determine for yourself which route is best for you.

Hi HacKiller,

I've investigated your minidumps and the culprit is faulty ram.

1. Reseat the memory stick to another memory slot
2. Downclock the ram
3. Clean the dust inside the computer case
4. Make sure that the ram is compatible to the motherboard

If it still crashes, diagnostic which memory stick is faulty
1. Take out one memory stick. If windows does not crash, the removed memory stick is faulty.
2. If you have only one memory stick, replace the ram

A:AMD Sempron vs. AMD Athlon?

The Sempron should not be more expensive then the Athlon of the same performance and generation on the same socket type. The Sempron is the budget line that replaced the older Duron line of AMD CPU's. The line competes with Intel's Celeron-D processors. The difference is mainly the Level 2 cache(1/4 or 1/2 of that of the Athlon), bus speeds(1600 versus 2000 or 333Mhz versus 400Mhz for the socket A line), and cores(not the very latest), and it nots available for the newest 939 socket. The Sempron's don't get updated as quickly as the Athlon lines with new cores but they're great for basic systems and for people on a budget that don't need the latest and greatest.

What do you plan to use your new computer for? If you simply need something for browsing the internet, then the sempron will be fine, but you should know that those sempron CPUs are built as a budget level part.

I have an AMD Sempron 3000+ 1.8ghz on a foxcconn 760GXK8MC motherboard. It's socket 754. Old I know, but not too old.

I have 1gb of RAM, a 512mb graphics card. I think the CPU is the weakest point at the moment. But to upgrade the CPU, you usually have to upgrade the motherboard. I was thinking of going dual-core anyway and that isn't socket 754.

Is there anyway I can overclock my CPU safely? I have NEVER done this before so I would appreciate a step-by-step thing....

I am using a PC-CHIPS motherboard (M810 series) equipped with A socket and just installed bare-bones a Sempron 2400+ and a 64K memory stick. The only response I get from the system is 8 beeps; no display on the monitor. Are there any known issues with this configuration (pcchips motherboard-memory size-Sempron).
P.S. I had the motherboard in storage for a few months and it was OK up to when it was stored.

Is a AMD Sempron 3100+ any good? What is the differences between it and an AMD Athlon XP 2400+? There is a choice on a website between a Sempron 3100+ and Athlon XP 2400+ w/ mobo for the same price. Which is a better performer?

A:Solved: Correct RAM for Sempron?! What?! Where?!

You need 184-pin DDR SDRAM, not DDR2 nor DDR3. SDRAM is synchronous, meaning it is synchronized with the systems clock. Older DRAM ran at its own speed. You can use PC2700 or PC3200. If you add a PC3200 stick to what you have now, it will only run at PC2700 speed. I don't know how being in the UK affects things, but you can get what your looking for from Crucial or many other vendors online.

A:Sempron 3100 or Athlon 64

Sure thing.

There are seven basic chips for Socket 462 (A). They are:

Duron (classic)
Duron Applebred
Athlon Thunderbird
Athlon XP
Athlon XP Barton

And there are four basic chips for sockets 754 and 939:
Athlon 64
Athlon 64 FX

The sempron is the only CPU that exists for both the old and the new socket. The sempron is, in essence, is AMDs answer to the Intel Celeron. It is a lower priced chip that, even though it is on the 64bit socket, is still a 32bit chip. It lacks greatly in performance as compared to an Athlon 64, but is intended to be a entry-level CPU.

The Socket A sempron is the same core as an Athlon XP Thouroughbred, with 256kb L2 cache. The primary difference is that the FSB of the cpu has been upped to 166mhz from 133mhz. All TBred's are designed to run on 133mhz fsb (There are two exceptions, but they are of no particular note, one was never released), and the Semprons are designed to run on 166mhz FSB.

So in short:

Sempron = Competetion for the celeron, 166mhz FSB for Socket A, 32-bit for 754/939 sockets

I cannot remember if there will be any semprons for the 754 socket, if someone can please refresh my memory.

Hope this helps.

The CPU can, but its more of a question of your motherboard.... but if you look on the Emachine site:

The mobo only supports up to 2GB of RAM. If it had 4 memory slots or less limitations, it can have more. There maybe a bios update to support more RAM.

Well you are trying to run a processor that isn't supported on that motherboard. That's not a very good start. Secondly, I don't think Semprons have unlocked multipliers, so even if the motherboard could change the multiplier you would still have to unlock it physically on the chip.

So if i increased my CPU voltage to the same as the overclocked screenshot, will my CPU achive overclocked performence the same as the sempron displayed in the screenshot?

or is there more that needs to be done to raise the clock speed from 1800mzh to 2500mhz?

If im way off, dont flame, Im learning.

I am still in the looking-at-a-new-computer mode. I keep thinking I must stick with highest Athlon or Pentium 4, but how do the Celeron and Sempron stack up against them? Do I really need to get the best? I need what's good for 'net use, basic use, and photo editing/organizing use--no plan for game use.

I just recently upgraded my computer (which after 2 defective different parts was a huge pain). I set my fsb in the bios to 190, now i have a 1.99 Ghz machine. I can change the fsb up to 199 i think while the jumpers are on 166. However if i switch it up to 200mhz it gets a "machine check error". My specs are-> sempron 2500+ with stock heatsink, sy-kt600 dragon plus v2.0, 333 mhz ram, nvidia mx 440 video card. I'm guessing that the error is putting it to 200mhz is to much for the ram. I don't know a whole lot about overclocking and i know that a sempron is not very good at that. But if anyone has any suggestions, people always like faster computers!! Thanks.

Can I install Install a DVD burner on sr1910nx-sempron ?

Will I be able to use Nero to burn video files t makeo dvd video on it ?

At the moment it has a cw/rw and dvd rom installed inside.

It is a Compaq Presario PC,


A:Installing an internal DVD-rw burner on sr1910nx-sempron

Any IDE DVD/RW should work in your Compaq. If you have an OEM version of Nero (Nero Express only) it may only support the drive it came with. If you have the full retail version of Nero Ultimate, it should work but check with Nero's web site to see if they support that drive

I've been running an earlier version of Wolfenstein 3D on my Gateway 3310S intel Celeron 2.80 ghz processor (Windows XP) O.K. I just purchased a Compaq SR1910NX 3200+ (Windows XP). I can install and load the game but cannot execute it. I just get a blank screen. A help file suggests that the game doesn't recognize the processor as being Pentium and I need to go to WWW.AMD.COM and download UPDTPI31.EXE. I cannot find this file anywhere. Do you suppose this is indeed what I need? Maybe all this is too old? I purchased this Compaq mainly to allow the games to be run there instead of on my main computer. Maybe I screwed up and should have purchased a Pentium processor????
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Ok folks my girlfriends laptop has just given up the ghost. I've traced the fault down to the motherboard. Rather than ditching the lappy I'm gonna replace the motherboard and possibly upgrade the cpu while in surgury. So i'm just wondering what is the quickest CPU I can drop into this lappy without any Bios flashing or general mucking around with the system.

I know you can do it as I have seen a Turion 64 1.6ghz on the same mother board as mine (Part No. 394253)

Also can other motherboard/CPU combinations fit into the Compaq M2000 shell??

My son is running a ASUS motherboard with an AMD Sempron CPU No problems playing Unreal and other games We picked up a dual cpu AMD vs Sempron Athlon single games Dual for Athlon MPs w a Gigabyte RAID MB in a big server tower at an auction had to take about other older PCs to get it though but for bucks why not I threw some RAM and Dual Athlon vs single Sempron for games an old hard drive in it and it fired right up I d like to ask if he would see a noticable difference in performance if we swapped all his hardware to this quot new quot machine and ran the games with the dual processors I have absolutely no gaming experience and even less with dual CPUs I just don t want to the hassle of talking Pro into accepting the new MB and have the games play the same He s got MB RAM and an ATi MB video card that will go with the two Gig hard drives He was happy with his system until he saw the dual CPUs Thanks for your time nbsp

I hav a:
2004 Pentuim 4...1gig ram(maxedout)...2.2 gigahertz 200mb harddrive(NOT THE SATA TYPE)....WINXP

2008 AMD Sempron 3400+..1gig( 4 gb possible upgrade)..2.00 gigahertz 200mb SATA hardrive..WINXP

Which computer should i keep? I dont game much but watch alot of streaming media
My first thought is PEN4 is better therefore better than Sempron, my second thought is Sempron with 4 GB of memory possible might be better.

Ok i know that pentium processors are better than AMD for work related stuff well thats what i got told but i use my AMD for games and i just wanted to know which processor you guys think is better.

AMD Sempron +2400 1.7ghz


Pentium m 1.4ghz

I know some of you might be thinking why im asking because obviously the 1.7ghz is the best but is that true because i ran a program to test CPU and the pentium m won on CPU passmark getting 305 and AMD getting 295 but the AMD won on other tests i have attached the test results to this thread so you can see for yourself.

I guess my real question is how good are AMD sempron processors?

A:AMD sempron +2400 1.7ghz VS Pentium m 1.4ghz

Nothing is better than others OVERALL.

AMD excels at gaming. Pentium wins in video/audio de/en-coding. Also, the chipset plays a role in benchmarking. SiS is no way better than nForce, for example. Like my family's PC, its PC3200 RAM is the same as mine in my PC, but their benchy wins in RAM dept. Their RAM or Intel chipset is better than mine.

i have just changed the motherboard to a foxconn xp 748k7aa motherboard and sempron 2400 on my old computer. when i plug in the computer the power light comes on without me even powering it up, no fans whirring or no beeps. however, i have not done a clean install of the hard drive but i wouldnt have thought that would be a problem with the powering up.

do i need to put the hd into another computer and reformat it before i start

any help would be appreciated

My Processor is it good for gaming cause im wondering if i shud buy a new one cause when i play CSS ( Counter Strike: Source) its kinda laggy well its more laggy than not laggy at all. Plus the graphics ar pretty bad, but im able to see everything ( not clearly ). So Im wondering if my processor ( AMD Sempron 3100+) is good for it or i shud get a new one and shud i get a new graphics card (SiS 760)? My RAM is 512MB maybe i shud get 2GB RAM or 1GB????any suggestions?

A:AMD Sempron 3100+ Processor(1.81 Ghz), Good for gaming or Bad?

It looks like from your post that you are using on board graphics. This would be one cause of the lagginess. Your processor may also be slowing things down. Since it is a Semperon, you would be limited to getting another socket 754 processor. The Athlon 64 is still available in socket 754, but this socket only supports single channel memory, unlike the socket 939 which supports dual channel memory.

So, to help you with a video card, what does your Motherboard support: AGP or PCI-e graphics cards? If you don't know for sure then tell us your motherboard make and model and we can help suggest an appropriate video card.

Here is a possible processor upgrade:

Hi folks,
I have an emachines w3644 with a sempron le-1200 cpu installed. The mobo is an AM2 socket. I am trying to find out if I can upgrade to a dual core, possibly an Athlon 64x2 4800?

A:Solved: Upgrade cpu issue sempron le-1200

If the socket is AM2 it should take all AM2 cpu. That leaves quite a variety of choices.
Almost all of them will be a fairly dramatic increase in performance. Price should range betwenn $80 - $200, any more than that will be overbaord for that machine. Personally I'd go with the AMD 6000. This is your machine, right?: - so I'd grab one more gig of ram too, should be able to get 667 ram for about $45 for a gig. Consider a video card, you only have X8 slot which is a bit odd, most have x16. But still, a $75 -100 card will be multiple times as good as that onboard 6100. If it was me, I'd get the new nVidia 9600 for $150, but I like to game.

A:Sempron, k7n2 D2 system keeps freezing and rebooting


the solution was simple - and I was stupid while installing the heatsink - I set it wrong way round the CPU so that the heat-leading paste couldn't reach the CPU core.

thank you for reading my post anyway
