Preferred Solution: Need to know if this motherboard will support my processor, RAM and GPU

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The board seems to be a P4 board. - Intel® Desktop Board - DQ963GS

However there does seem to be support for Core2 processros with BIOS updates. - Found 36 Compatible Processor(s) for Board "DQ965GF"

Hey there, I've recently gotten more and more into gaming, and as it gets more serious the demands for less lag has gotten to be more!

So here's the eMachine. I got it from a friend and he put a huge video card, a new power supply, and lots of RAM into it.

Anyway here's the link: http://www.e4me.com/products/products.html?prod=T3642

and here's the CPU I want to put inside of it: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103210

I know the sockets match and everything, but I read something about how my motherboard has to support Dual-Core Processors

(Btw here is my current processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103868 )

I have a Gateway Computer Model G6-350. It have a Intel MP440BX motherboard with PhonexBIOS 4.0 Release 6.0 (4M4PB0X1.15A.0033.P21) and Pentium II 350 Processor.

Thanks to anybody.
 

A:Processor Support for Intel 440BX Motherboard

That's a Gateway-specific motherboard, Intel have no information about it on their site. From looking at similar boards you should be able to run a P3-450 (Katmai, not Coppermine), which is what the Intel SE440BX goes up to. I'm assuming you have a very early 440BX board as it came with a P2-350, the first 100MHz FSB processor Intel released.

Just a quick question.

I have an Intel Pentium D 2.8ghz.

Can it support x64 or can it only support x32.

I have tried to find out for myself but my search came up cold, i could not find anything.

Cheers guys.

A:does my processor support x64?

1. Open Performance Infomation and Tools (Right click my computer and select "properties" Click on Windows Experience Index)

2. Click "View and Print detailed performance and system Information".
3. In the System section, you can see what type of operating system you're currently running under System type, and whether or not you can run a 64-bit version of Windows under 64-bit capable. (If your computer is already running a 64-bit version of Windows, you won't see the 64-bit capable listing.)

I have just tried to install Windows 10 but got the error message that my processor doesn't support it.

It's on a very old Dell Dimension 3000 computer that I have been upgrading over time. One of the only things I haven't changed is the processor. However, I'm pretty sure it should be good enough to run it.

It is an Intel Pentium 4 Prescott 90nm Technology 2.80GHz

I did think that I needed to enable something in the bios for it to support NX, but I can't find a setting for it anywhere.

Does anyone know how I can fix it please?

What "upgrading over time" have you done to that desktop?

All the original hardware in it is too old and too slow to run Windows 10.

The Intel Pentium IV 2.80 GHz processor was introduced in early 2002, so it's about 13 years old.

It's a single-core model with a 533 MHz frontside bus speed.

It supports only 32-bit versions of Windows.

It's my guess you're trying to install a 64-bit version of Windows 10 in that desktop.

Hi,

I think that my MOBO can support this processor, but I just wanted to check.

I currently have a Intel Core 2 Duo E660 2.4GHz, with 2GB DDR2 533MHz RAM (2x1GB).
My MOBO is an ASUS P5N-E SLI.


(1)
I want to upgrade to an Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 2.66GHz Quad Core CPU. According to the ASUS website, my computer can support Quad core.

"
- Support Intel® next generation 45nm Multi-core CPU
- Intel® Quad-Core
"


(2)
I also wondered how much is the maximum RAM my MOBO can support (can I put in 2GB sticks in or just 4x1GB).

"
- Dual-channel DDR2 800/667/533
"


All help greatly appriciated in question #1 or #2.
 

A:Will my MOBO support a new processor and differnet RAM?

generally it is better just to stick with 2 sticks of ram. So go with 2 x 2gb if you want 4gb. (This is overkill for most applications). 2gb should be plenty.

You should not have any CPU upgrade issues, but you may require a BIOS update. Read: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic75555.html

Hey you guys. Building a new computer with an X2 AMD processor, and while reading up on the differences between XP Pro and XP Home I noticed this on a few sites:

From Microsofts site:
Scalable processor support – up to two-way multi-processor support.Click to expand...

From another site:
Multi-processor support - Windows XP Pro supports up to two microprocessors, while Home Edition supports only one.Click to expand...

Am I getting all of this wrong? Does it really mean that a dual core processor won't do crap when dealing with applications in Home, because it's not supported? Or are they talking about two actual processors connected into one computer?

My home desktop is an ASUS P4S800-MX motherboard w/ a p4 @ 3GHz (800mhZ FSB), 1GB DDR RAM, 40GB IDE HD, 512MB ATI radeon AGP graphics card, and wifi. Before upgrading to vista, im thinking of finding a new motherboard that can support 2 P4's and add another gig of memory while also making my existing hardware compatible. Would you suggest i make such a change or just keep my current settings and just add 1GB more ram and get an SATA HD rather than keeping my IDE drive? I'm open to any suggestions (cost efficient of course)

Why not just upgrade with the existing system? The only thing that cries out for replacement is the 40gig drive. You don't really need more than a gig for decent performance with Vista.

I have a compaq presario, CQ56 115DX Notebook, by HP.
Problem started last week and resurfaced again this monday.
could not get my notebook out sleep mode, the caps lock was blinking once, indicating a cpu problem.
took it in to a tech, who changed the cpu. System was running until 2 days, ago, when again, could not get it out of
sleep. Press the power button, turns the laptop off completely, press again, back to sleep, with caps lock blinking once, indicating cpu issues. Took it back to tech, who now thinks it could be the motherboard.
If that was the case, then HP diagnostics would have the caps lock blinking 5 times, right?


HELP, THANKS

A:Motherboard or processor, which is it??

Hello GLENDAGIRL. Welcome to the forum.

Not necessarily. If the problem were in the motherboard's CPU socket that could be mistaken for a CPU error.

CPUs are hardy components. It's hard to kill them and they don't usually go bad. The fact that the CPU was switched and the problem persists would pretty much eliminate it as a suspect.

Have you or the tech checked and reseated the RAM? It is generally a good idea to check everything for loose connections.

What should I do before I install a new motherboard and processor to an existing Windows Vista Business x64 OS?

I know I should probably uninstall all the drivers, but where do I find these?

A:New motherboard/processor

I did this not too long ago. All you need to do is get rid of the drivers that correspond with hardware that you wont have anymore. For example, a new motherboard usually means a new onboard sound, so uninstall your sound drivers. They can probably be located in the Control Panel -> Programs window. If not there, go into the Hardware Manager and uninstall/disable whatever you need to. Anything thats motherboard specific should go, although there isnt all that much. There is no software that corresponds to processors. Once all that is done, you can swap the hardware and install the new drivers that came with the new motherboard.

Hope that helped

How should I go about this? windows 10 comes with two types of activation > Digital entitlement ( when you have successfully upgraded from win 7 / 8 pro-there is no product key in this) >product key
difference between the two is , in digital entitlement, microsoft activation information is saved in your BIOS, and i case you change your motherboard you will lose your activation.
> product key, motherboard change wont effect it and should work fine.
so yours being linked to computer setup ( i consider it being Digital entitlement) you can connect your digital license with your Microsoft account because after the hardware upgrade you will lose your license , . here are the picture of what you see when you have successfully linked your account :
before :
after:
there is another way where you can contact Microsoft support and you will receive the activation, as it was mentioned by Gabe Aul.

A:Motherboard or Processor

Corrupted files usually point to a corrupted\failing HDD.

However, there's one thing that wasn't clear from your post: Did you replace the motherboard and then do a clean install of XP or was it the other way around? If you did it before replacing the motherboard, then you'll have to do it again, because while Windows can handle hardware changes like new RAM, a new video card and even a new CPU, a new motherboard is too much for it to handle and the Hardware Abstraction Layer becomes messed up, usually ending in BSODs or other problems.

My computer is unable to start when I press on the power button. When I press on the power button, everything doesn't run except for the processor fan and the power supply fan which only run for 1 second then it stops. It seems like there is no power connected to the system.

Even I have tried a new power supply, it does the same thing. When I look at the motherboard, a green light is on. This is confusing me because if there is no power connection, the green light on the motherboard can't be on. But if there is connection, then why system doesn't run.

I am suspecting either the processor or the motherboad has gone. But I am not sure at all. Your helps is highly appreciate. Thanks you so much.

How do i tell what kind of processor i can use on my motherboard? Am i right in saysing that you can only use certain processors on the certain motherboards? If so where could i find a program or site that will tell me what processors my motherboard could support?
 

A:Motherboard and Processor

The manufacturer's site will tell you. Sometimes they also have a BIOS update that expands the types of processors that are supported, too.

These will give you detailed information on your machine:

my friend is now planning to buy a new mobo and processor. Call it lack of funds but he can afford to spend $150 for both mobo and processor. I'll try to chip-in $50 so we are looking for about $150 to $200. what would be the best options for us.

My system sometimes does not boot up. I power it up but, nothing happens. What could it be? The power just shuts off.
 

A:Bad Motherboard or processor?

It could be a power problem or a lot of other things. Can you give us more detail on what happens. I would think the first thing to do would be to check the power cord and make sure it is plugged in good. Then I would see if any of the lights are lighting up.

Hi, a quick question if I may.
I'm thinking of up grading my motherboard and processor, currently running a Gigabyte G33M-S2 and intel core2 E6750 @ 2.66GHz. 4GB ram Vista home premium SP2.
3 years old now but with the new crop of games recently out and coming soon requiring quad core processors it seems like a upgrade to i5/i7 processor and surrounding bits would be a good move.
Question is can I install my currant OS "Vista" have the disc and key? or with it being OEM will I have to splash out the extra ?100ish for a new OS..

Thanks Ian..

A:New motherboard and processor

The answer...you really won't know until you try it.Technically...MS considers a change of motherboard alone as a change of systems. That would make the textbook answer depend on the type of license you have for Vista.If the license came with a system assembled by one of the OEMs...or is a MS System Builder/OEM license...technically, MS has the right to tell you that such license is not transferable.If it's a retail license where you bought/installed Vista on the system...you could move it with no problem.In reality...you won't know until you try. I know for a fact that many XP users in similar situations...have made the changes mentioned (and more) and had no problem with PA after the changes.Vista is a tad more recent than XP...and the rules being applied may be a bit different...hence my answer.Louis

Recently ive been having trouble with my processor overheating. Today i left it running when i went to work and when i got back the computer had shut down. I have it seet so that if the cpu temp is 70c its shuts down.
When i switched it back on, nothing happened. No sounds, no beeps and nothing on the screen. I checked the little LED diagnostic thing on the mobo and it said that there was a problem with the processor, so i reseated it and still nothing happened. I then tried my old p4, but still nothing happened, so i put the old p4 into the old mobo and now that wont boot.

What has happened? Have the processors died, the motherbord died or both.

I would be greatful for any help as im pulling my hair out over this.

A:Can I Get A New Processor For A MotherBoard??

No, the fastest Socket 7 CPU ever made was the K6-2 550Mhz if I'm not mistaken. You could upgrade to that but it would not be worth it.

There is no point to upgrading a bios if it is working ok, the only reason to do so is to fix a problem or to support new hardware or O/S.

Unfortunately, upgrading your system to say a new AMD or P4 would require a lot more than just a Motherboard and CPU. You would also need a new case, powersupply, and Ram and maybe even a new video and sound card if the old ones are intergrated as they usually are with Compaqs. Also you may need a new modem if the old one is ISA because most new mobo's do not have ISA any more.

What is going on..... is this a bad processor, memory, HHD, or MOBO.Can some one please help.

First of all double check that everything is installed correctly, e.g. the heatsink in on properly, RAM modules are pressed in firmly, all the cables are plugged in and have a browse through the motherboard's manual because tbh I've never really heard of ECS.

You could also try booting with another hard drive if you have one, if that's from your old computer then maybe it's dying.

Out of interest did you fresh install a copy of Windows 7 and how did you go about updating the BIOS?

1. Can I overclock my system to max FSB 800MHz if the rest of the system supports it?
My processor runs at 2620MHz and PC3200 RAM runs at effective 366MHz. Original system bus is 133MHz.
2. Can i buy socket 478 pentium processor wich FSB is 800MHz?
3. Wich of these is better:
P4 2,8GHz, FSB 800MHz, system bus 200MHz
P4 3,0GHz, FSB 533MHz, system bus 133MHz (Or something near that)
4. If processor is 3GHz and FSB 533 will memory bus still be 166MHz? My curren celeron is 2,4GHz with FSB 533MHz and memory bus is at 166MHz.
Sorry for bad english and probably posting to the wrong place.

And also, is it possible to fit a pentium processor into the socket that now holds the 486? I mean, could I just buy a new processor and jam that it there, or would I need a whole new motherboard?
 

A:motherboard/processor

To find your motherboard is a pain but this place will tell you how.
Home page. http://www.ping.be/bios/

Here is the page that tells you how. http://www.ping.be/bios/numbers.shtml

As far as upgrading goes The Pentium processors will use a different voltage and socket. You may be able get a faster 486mhz chip for that board. I would not recommend spending much money on it though as it might be time to build or buy a new one.

My brother was in this same position. Things he bought Evergreen Turbo chip. $100.00
64 megs of EDO ram $50.00 New CD player $45.00

It is easy to get caught up in the upgrade path as you hate to see a older computer not being used. But then it is easy to spend too much money trying to get a old system to run marginally better.

You may be able to use the "sysprep" utility to genericize the installation before moving it to the new motherboard.

I have learned that motherboards can only support some processors even if unsupported ones have the same socket

So I have found a new processor that might be compatible with my motherboard but I want you lot to tell me if you think It will work or not

Here's the specs that you may need to know

My motherboard: (PTGD1-LA (Puffer) Motherboard Specifications, PTGD1-LA (Puffer) HP Pavilion t775.uk Desktop PC | HP? Support

My Current Processor: (Intel Pentium 4 530) ARK | Intel? Pentium? 4 Processor 530/530J supporting HT Technology (1M Cache, 3.00 GHz, 800 MHz FSB)

The New Processor: (Intel Pentium 4 662)
ARK | Intel? Pentium? 4 Processor 662 supporting HT Technology (2M Cache, 3.60 GHz, 800 MHz FSB)

The current processor I use is 32 bit as the new processor is 64 bit. Will this still work on the motherboard

A:Motherboard/Processor update

Your CPU socket is PPGA478, P4 is the highest CPU this socket will support.

Even with LGA775 CPU socket, unless you had a motherboard that would support quad core, there would be little reason to upgrade over a complete system replacement.

In answer to your question to "Plug and Play", yes and no. Yes CPU's are basically plug and play, and No the motherboard must support the CPU first.

I'd say you are safe to assume it is just a processor, not a special HP customized one.

Im asking this question because i will be upgrading my computer but i dont know what processor it can handle at most.
My computer is Acer and the model is Aspire 5710G, so what processor can it handle at the highest?
And if i upgrade it to new processor, do i have to reformat my computer?
And also, what graphics card can it handle up to?
At the moment my processor is Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T5500.

It looks like you are going to need to replace the RAM and graphics card too, because motherboards that use DDR RAM and AGP 4X graphics cards aren't made anymore. Can you tell us your budget, and what you plan to use the computer for (email, web, games, etc)?

Hi,
I would like to buy a faster processor but motherboard only supports a 1066 FSB. Intel's compatibly page only seems to list discontinued processor models. The E7500 seems to be fastest processor currently available with a 1066 FSB. How does it compare with older Q6700?
Please let me know if there are any other compatible processors I should consider.

Core Duo E6600 (2.4)
DP965LT motherboard
5GB RAM
ATI 5770

Thanks
 

A:New processor for a DP965LT motherboard

I think 65nm technology is as far as you can go with the 965 chipset, but I'm not certain.

This I do know, the E7500 is 45nm, and essentially a brand new release. Only boards bought within the last 6 months are likely compatible with it without a BIOS update.

http://processormatch.intel.com/CompDB/SearchResult.aspx?Boardname=dp965lt I saw the same compatibility page for your board that you did, and it looks like you're out of luck. The newest CPUs that will work are the E21XX Pentium Dual Cores, and they're not as good as what you have.

Other board manufacturers may have offered BIOS updates for CPU compatibility with this chipset beyond that of Intel, but that's sort of a moot point.

It's just a thought, but those Conroe C2Ds are notoriously good for overclocking, You might reverse your thinking and replace the board, not the CPU. I'm pretty sure that most P45 chipset boards are backwards compatible with your CPU. If your were to buy a Gigabyte or other non Intel board, the BIOS wouldn't be locked, and you could overclock the E6600.

Then, even if you blew it up, you could always run a 45nm CPU in the later board.

I'm the voice of absolutely no experience, but I think that 3.0 GHz should be easily doable with your processor. (Or so I've heard)

This is the CPU support list for a Gigabyte GA-EP45C-UD3R ; http://www.gigabyte.us/Support/Motherboard/CPUSupport_Model.aspx?ProductID=2954&ver=#anchor_os You CPU is listed. This board is a very popular model. Other Gigabyte P45 boards should support the same CPUs. The P45 is essentially the successor to the P965 chipset, hence the reason why I'm suggesting it, Your DDR2 would plug right in. Newegg has this in stock; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...4 1070509908 107172615&name=Intel P43/P45/P55, for 90 bucks. (Some P45 boards take DDR3, you gotta watch).

Hello all

First post here - looks like a very interesting forum.

I've recently upgraded (at home) to an ASUS P5P800 motherboard along with a P4 3.0Ghz processor. Managed to fit it all together OK. I have noticed, though that the processor fan does become very noisy after the PC has been on for a few hours. It actually sounded as though the washing machine had moved into the study! I've checked that the fan is properly fixed etc and all seems to be OK. I appreciate that as the processor heats up the fan will increase in speed to compensate, but I don't think it should be that loud!

Any thoughts would be gratefully appreciated.

Regards
 

A:Motherboard Processor Fan is very loud.

what brand of fan do you have? some fans are just louder than others. try searching about how much dB's (decibels) your fan gives and if it is more than 30 it's loud. i hope this helps you.

Hi me again. i did something similar to this but thats not why im here. CAN A SOCKET 775 PROCESSOR work on a SOCKET 478 MOBO.

I cant find no answers to this question on google.

i need a dual core processor like this Celeron E3200 Dual-Core 2.4GHz. BUT its 775. WILL IT WORK ON MY 478 cheers. OR is there any 478 dual cores out there?

A:LGA775 processor on a 478 MOtherboard

Simple answer... NO. Even if the number of contacts on the processors were the same (they aren't), it wouldn't work because the pins are on the processor for the skt 478 m/b whereas for the 775 processor the pins are in the socket.

Also, should I just replace the motherboard first, and then the processor, or both at the same time?

A:Can I install any Processor in any motherboard?

No,certain processors use certain socket types.

The Intel® Core™ i3-5xx processor series uses a LGA1156 socket and the Intel® Core™ i3-2xxx processor series feature a LGA1155 socket. Processors for each socket are not compatible with the other socket and won't work due to electrical, mechanical, and keying differences. The boxed fan-heatsinks will work across sockets because the socket footprint is the same. You do need to match the Thermal Design Profile (TDP) of the respective processors in order to properly match the right heatsinks to the right processors.

The "Best to buy" is so subjective. In all the reviews I've read, the i850 chipset based systems are still the performance leaders. They are also the most expensive.

In terms of performance, SiS645 chipset is the next best. The problem is it's new and I'm having trouble finding any boards that are available right now.

In terms of what MoBo brand to buy ... that's a can 'o worms. My personal favorite is Asus. You're right that Abit makes good boards, too. Most of the bigger board makers have good products, it's really just a matter of finding a board with all of the features that you want.

From my understanding, it is not going through POST so it's either the motherboard, processor, RAM or the GPU that's not functioning.

Removed everything starting with the RAM = beeping
Removed processor = no beep
Put processor back in = beeping
GPU is on-board.

As the title says, I wanna change my motherboard processor, and insert an SSD aswell while keeping the old harddrive.

Was wondering if I need to perfom a new reinstall on windows or if I can just transfer windows itself to the SSD and then just keep going. I was also wondering if my windows install will messup if I insert my new motherboard due to new BIOS.

Thanks
 

A:Changing motherboard and processor

Its always a good idea to fresh install when changing motherboards. A fresh install will minimize any issues that could arise from different hardware configurations. I've also heard that Windows setup detects an SSD and optimizes Windows for use with the SSD.

You should also keep in mind, an OEM license for Windows is not be transferable to a new motherboard. The motherboard is the one component that constitutes a new machine. OEM installs are bound to the motherboard they are activated on.
