Looking to upgrade processor, board Micro-Star MS-7184

Q: Looking to upgrade processor, board Micro-Star MS-7184

hello, ive had this desktop computer for years now and the processor is extremely outdated. I have been looking around trying to figure out how i can upgrade the processor speed but it seems the more i look up the less i know about computers...

anyways i have: Board: MICRO-STAR MS-7184
Serial Number: 5922655884

current proccessor: 2.00 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64
256 kilobyte primary memory cache
1024 kilobyte secondary memory cache
64-bit ready
Not hyper-threaded

I believe the socket is a 939? when i looked up these specs i found that the highest processor i can place is " AMD Athlon 64 X2 (up to 4800+) and Sempron (up to 3200+) processors".

Can anyone verify this?Or is it not worth investing in a new processor? i am looking to find the best upgrade rather then spending cash to buy a new computer. Any advice would be extremely appreciated.

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.)

Hey Noctis,

Truth be told you are better off upgrading your Motherboard, RAM, and Processor if you want to see any substantial difference. A socket 939 is quite a bit old and since then they have move onto the AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, etc sockets for AMD Mobos and Processors.

Socket 939 processors are to the point where they are no longer just old enough to be cheap. Since they are no longer made they are old enough to be more expensive than modern counterparts in many cases.

When upgrading the MOBO and CPU you want to look into more than just the processor speed. Important factors are also the types and amount of cache for a processor, number of cores, and RAM that can be used with that CPU.

The newer Athlon II X2s as an example are a significant leap from the original Athlon 64s and a discerning buyer online can find them significantly cheap. AM2+ boards are currently somewhat inexpensive and so is DDR2 RAM. They are currently at the stage where they are old enough to be somewhat cheap but with the newest socket and processors being sold by AMD now it may change iwthin the next few years to start getting expensive again from being old enough.

You also have the route of a AM3 with DDR2 or DDR3 Ram option available which are also moderately priced.

If you check out the website you can look at pricing for several different mobos, cpus, etc from various websites easily. I just completed a full build including case, HDD, Mobo, CPU, DVD-RW, RAM, Graphics card, etc for just over $350.00

Shall I Upgrade My Processor/What Processors are CompatibleWith My Board?

Well as you can tell from the title, i'm wondering if I should upgrade my processor and what processors are compatible with my board.

I have a ASUS PDGT-LA [HP Goldfish3].

I currently have a Intel Pentium 4 519K 3.06Ghz 533 Mhz FSB 64-bit Processor.

Would upgrading to a 640 or a 630 be worth the $100?

What processors are compatible with my board?

I bought Dell Dimension 4600 with P4 2.4Ghz and wanted upgrade to 3.0Ghz or higher. I want to make sure that I am buying a right CPU.

The spec said I can upgrade to 3.0Ghz/800FSB, but according to user win2kpro on this thread, he said my motherboard is D865PESO, so I went to the Intel website and find this page.

The page says that it supports Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor Extreme Edition supporting Hyper-Threading Technology† , so I follow the link which show that the motherboard supports 3.20 - 3.46Ghz/ 800FSB.

Since Dell said supports upto 3.0Ghz, my question is can I upgrade to P4 Extreme Edition 3.46Ghz?

I have a coworker who is trying to get a computer going for her kids. She was told by a IT guy at work that her MB was shot and the best thing to do was buy a whole new computer. I told her that if she could get the same motherboard, it could be a cheap fix and the kids would be up and running again without much delay. It is an old Compaq with a MS 7184 ver 1.0 MB. The only thing I see available is MS 7184 ver .8. Is the MB she has backwards compatible to this MB. Not sure of all the other stuff inside. Would you recommend doing this if it is compatible or sucking it up and buying a new kids computer?

Thanks for the help.

A:Solved: Ms 7184 mb

It can be done, but it depends how comfortable you are with working on PC's

You can replace a motherboard on a PC, by uninstalling all the motherboard resources from the PC, shutting down, replacing the motherboard and installing new drivers.

However if she bought the PC with Windows pre-installed then this would make her license invalid and she would need to buy a new Windows license which isnt too cheap, this coupled with the new motherboard and the time taken to install, she may be better getting a new PC and then at least she has an up to date machine and the warranty that comes with it.

I wouldn't mind upgrading towards a motherboard that'll have a available slot for a video card because mine does not have that capability so thus I'm stuck with a onboard video . If this helps here's my pro

At least I hope I can get another board to use with my Processor because at this point in time I don't want to have to go out an buy the bundle

A:New board old processor

First of all is this a pre-built system ie dell, compaq, hp, etc? If so, you are pretty much stuck buying a board from them because the case is usually proprietary; that is it will not fit a standard atx board.

If this is a custom build, then yes you can replace your board.

I have a Pentium 4A 2400-MHz system here that will POST about one out of every eight to twelve attempts. When it does POST, it runs flawlessly for as long as I leave it on, even for days or weeks. However, if I turn it off or attempt to do a restart, I'm back to turning it on, waiting for it to POST and if it doesn't, turning it off and on again until it does POST.

I suspect the board or the processor; but, I'm at a loss as to which. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

I'm trying to do a little research here. It was recommended to replace my emachine T2825 motherboard with this: PC CHIPS M848A SOCKET A 462 SiS 746FX ATX AMD. My current CPU is AMD ATHLON XP 2800+. I believe I can upgrade to the AMD XP 3200+. Is this correct? Also I see this CPU listed in various sites as AMD ATHLON 64 3200+. Are these two the same? Would I see much of the difference going from the 2800+ to the 3200+?


A:Which processor is best for this board?

They are not the same at all. Athlon XP and Athlon 64 are two totally different architectures. Athlon XP uses Socket A (Socket 462), while Athlon 64 uses Sockets 754, 939, 940 (very rarely), and AM2.

Hi, I have a 2.4mhz computer which keeps dying, goes straight to black screen, no action. there has been problems with this machine for a while wont boot occasionally with ram error no floppy working, I think MB is dying. I use this for graphics, photoshop etc .Anyway I have no money at the moment but my old system with asus CUSL2 mb is sat here with decent ram but its only 933mhz,Can anyone tell me if I can get a faster processor for this MB so I can use the old system for now and ditch the 2.4mhz.My laptop which is a 1.6mhz runs photoshop etc fine, so if I can up the power a bit for a few quid on the old reliable tower that would be great for now .Thanks sam

A:Mother board and processor upgrading

A word of warning, if you plan on using the compaq and just change the motherboard and processor it may not fit. Compaq uses proprietary everything. I maybe wrong but keep it in mind. If it where me, I would buy a new case with power supply, get the motherboard and cpu, and use the rest of the components from the compaq.
You can buy a half decent case and power supply for less than a hundred.

You can check compaq's site and see if you can get any dimension's on your current case but more than likely it is a proprietary design for them. Even if the motherboard will physically fit inside the case the i/o's probably won't line up(meaning the usb/paralell port/mouse/keyboard/ etc connectors)

A:New Board + Processor cause XP to crash while loading

If you didn't re-install windows fresh after you got the new parts, that is the cause of your error message.

If you have windows installed on a hard-drive already and you change out computer parts such as motherboard, you will need to perform windows repair in order to get the computer running. If you don't have any important data on the hard-drive then I recommend you do a full format of your hard-drive and install windows fresh since you got new parts.

Overall, you will need to perform windows repair to get the computer going again.

You can swap in a generic Blu-Ray reader or reader/burner using the existing caddy and faceplate. Post back if you need help with that.  Unfortunately the 4-cell is the only battery made for your laptop.  All of these upgrades will require removal of the back cover, which is not technically end user authorized.

After cleaning my computer free of dust, I reinstalled all the necessary parts to get the computer working again. When I was to put the processor back, I found that:

1) the pins were a little bit bent but I think they bent back in place when i put it back
2) In order to put back on motherboard, i had to remove the processor from the fan and that means the thermal paste was somewhat removed.

So the biggest question I have is: Is re-adding thermal paste necessary? and is this why its been shutting down?

I'm not a gamer so extreme performance isn't a thing I just gotta' have; but, this dual processor board has two processors already installed and a Gig of RAM and it's only $99. It's used; but, I've had mostly good luck with used stuff. It also has all cables, fans, software, etc.

I would be using it as a desktop workstation.

For $99, what's your opinion? Are there any "gotchas" here?

There's also another different one here for only $60:

Hey all, I'm going absolutely nuts. I'm building a new system up for my mom and the parts she bought are fubar! The old board wouldn't format the HDD when I tried to install windows XP pro on it, though the hard drive did fine loading in my PC. Bought a new board and it won't POST. I had the Bus set to 233MHz which is what AMD lists as the frequency for the AthalonXP 2800+, but when I put the processor back in the old board to make sure I didn't fry the processor it read it's bus speed as 100MHz. I upped the speed to 233 on that board and it stopped posting. Do I have a bunk chip? If so, is the old board actually ok?

I'll post all the specs of the boards when I get back, but any 1st thoughts would be appreciated.

A:new board won't POST, Processor not running at correct speed

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

The correct front side bus speed for your athlon 2800+ cpu is 166mhz. By setting it to 233mhz this constitutes a massive overclock, and that is why your system wont post.

If you look at the cpu specs below you will see that the Athlon xp 2800+ has an fsb of 333mhz which is means it should be set to 166mhz. 166mhz X the multiplier of 12.5 = 2083mhz clock speed.

See HERE for athlon specs.

I've just installed a new mother board for an IBM netvista model 8311 63U
On startup it post and beeps twice and shows a message on 0167 no processor BIOS update.

If i ignore ...the system boots up to winxp home fine.
Using existing hard drive and away we go.

Concerns, on start up the fans (CPU and Case) start.. but then stop after the beeps. (They don't seem to start.. looking for a power shut off or something)...Sometimes the fans seem to kick in on their own much later

any direction appreciated

A:Recommend Desktop Board for Intel® Pentium® Processor E5200

Hello avishnashrawat mate that is a fairly old CPU being a 775 socket and you will be looking at getting a used board unless you find something local new which I am doubting very much. Now I can only find the specs for the CPU and I cannot find anything of any use except it does support 64bit stuff but I cannot make out or see what memory is supported so.

Sorry but if it were me and I had this processor that is just what I would have to do. Now there are some good 1150 socket boards at a reasonable price out here at around $88 for the ASUS B85M-F Motherboard, and coupled with say a Pentium such as the Intel Pentium G3240 ($79) or Intel Pentium Anniversary Edition G3258 ($89) or even a Intel Celeron G1840 at $59 then you would have an up to date board and processor albeit they are quite basic but I would suggest they are superior to the CPU you have now. Plus you then just need the other components to suit ie RAM.

Now I understand you might be tied to a budget but truly I think you would be better off doing that than throwing good money after bad, because using used components is like playing Russian roulette - you just would not know what you are getting.

Anyway perhaps things might turn out and you find something that you are asking after - good luck

What am I getting into with the onboard sound card removal? Do I have to disable it in the BIOS settings or just remove the sound properties in the device manager? I appreciate anybody that can help. Thanks. Fred


Just disable the sound in the BIOS. Then, when it boots up - no sound. Then, install the PCI sound card. Windows should detect it and install the drivers. Simple and easy. Go for it!

Just that the upgrade can be AU$40 cheaper than the non upgrade. Anyone know if the upgrade can do a clean install like win 7 upgrade can??

Hi all.

Im new here so forgive me if i seem to be a dumb ***.

Also forgive me if this has been covered before else where.

I have a home brew PC set up.

The mother board is a ASUS A7V8X-MX SE. its currently fitted with a AMD 2600+ CPU.

What id like to know is can i get an upgrade CPU to make things a bit faster ??

I cant find my original hand book that came with the mother board.

I have read that AMD do a 3200+ chip , but I'm not sure if my mother board can take this.
Also there seems to be several versions too and I'm also unsure if the mother board is even supported any more .

My PSU is a LC-B350ATX not sure if this will cope with extra drain of a faster CPU ???

Can any one help me out with some info ??

Hey im thinking of upgrading my pc so i can just hook it up hdmi to my tv. Ive looked around and my mobo only supports pci cards, which when i checked the hdmi out cards were a bit pricey. It also has one agp 4x slot but cant find a decent card in that department.

Should i get a new MOBO instead with an integrated hdmi out because another benefit of that would be a better CPU and ram support (mine currently says max memory is 1 gig on crucial, but i looked up the serial and says it supports 2) I do want a faster and stronger rig but dont know if all my components would matche up with a new board.

What would i need to look for in terms of choosing either of these options. My case apparently supports uATX (micro).

Depends on your cash situation. Sounds like your PC is a bit old so a refresh would be in order. Particularly if you have a nice TV, you are probably going to want to use the PC for gaming/media.

A:system board upgrade 8560w

The system boards are a drop in replacement for each other. This is the one you want: For use with quad-core processors in all countries except China and Ukraine 652638-001 You will also obviously need a Quad Core processor. You can move all the add-ons over from the old board to the new. Memory, video card, wireless, display cable, etc. Even the processor heatsink is part of the video card cooling system. It is the same on dual core and quad core boards.  This is no easy task, by the way. There are lots of connecting daughterboards and subassemblies.  Your Service Manual System board on eBay If you can do the work yourself, it is $115 for the board and then about $200 for the CPU: $315 might be a working economic proposition on a $2000+ laptop. If you were paying me to do it I would not touch it for less than about $3-400 in labor. Looks like an all-day job. The Manual is not designed for upgraders. It is made for technicians who remove and replace like-kind parts only. Officially, there are no upgrades, it is a bit of a gray art. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

I have a windows 7 system that I want to upgrade to Win10. The advisor says that the old on-board graphics card (built into the mobo) is not compatible. I went out and purchased a new PCI-e card that is compatible but the advisor continues to say that I can't upgrade. There appears to be no way for me to disable the old graphics chip in the BIOS.

I also tried to re-run the advisor analysis tool via the command line as mentioned in this post: Solved Cannot update to Windows 10 due to old video card - Windows 10 Forums

But the advisor still says that I can't update due to the old card.

Can I still upgrade to windows 10? If so what should I do?

BIOS string:51-1216-001437-00111110-071595-I430TX-001_10_TX-H
BIOS release: 12/16/1997s, AMIBIOS Version 2.5
Main Processor: Pentium MMX
Processor Clock: 200MHz
Power supply type: AT
Iam having 2X16MB + 2X8MB EDO ram in the SIMM slots.

Below are my queries:
1) Can I use 128MB PC-100 or PC-133 SDRAM in the DIMM slots available? (what is the recommended speed i.e PC-100 or PC 133 or any other?)
2) If I upgrade the BIOS to 12/16/1997s release, what is the maximum HDD size that I can connect (20GB, 40GB etc)
3) Should the HDD speed also considered while connecting a new one?

If any additional information is needed kindly let me know.

With Regards

I just upgraded my Dell Inspiron One 19 from a Celeron E3300 to a Core 2 Duo E6700 (as I got it for basically £0 on ebay).  I'm now thinking that I could have maybe upgraded to a Core 2 Quad (perhaps a Q9650).
Without any kind of a manual for the motherboard I feel I'm just guessing or relying on possibly incorrect information... like here.  So I'm really looking for a list of the best possible performing CPU's for this board or the boards specification / documentation.  The board is reported as a 06390H via cpu-z.
Thanks for any advice.

I'd like to upgrade a PC which so far was running on WindowsXP to Windows7. The Microsoft Upgrade checker told me that the hardware is okay for Windows7 (2 GB RAM, CPU Intel Pentium4 2x3GHz).
To be on the safe side, I checked the Intel homepage regarding the mainboard D875PBZ and found out, that there seems to exist no driver for Windows7 (or 8/8.1).
What I am surprised about though is that the upgrade checker did not warn me in this regard.
I would assume that if there is no mainboard driver for Windows7 I definitely cannot upgrade this system from XP to Windows7, right?
On the other hand, what is the Microsoft Upgrade Checker good for if it does not recognize such essential things?
Any ideas as to what I can do?

A:XP Upgrade to Windows 7 - no driver for Intel board D875PBZ ?


Theoretically your board is capable of running "Windows 7" ( BIOS and chipset is okay ) and that is why "Upgrade Adviser" reported it to be compatible. I have successfully installed and managed to tun "Win7" on systems which has lower specifications than yours - such as one with 865 and 845 chipsets. However performance will be marginally low when compared to a modern system. SO i would highly recommend to upgrade your CPU (you can keep the old monitor and save cash )or buy a refurbished CPU which can run 7 fine.

However if you really want to check whether your system is capable of running 7, you can download genuine "Windows 7" install media from "Digitalriver" ( a Microsoft subsidiary ) and use that to do a test install on your system. Both download links and performance optimization tips are covered in the tutorial Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Hi there I hope this is the correct place to put my post
I upgraded my one pc's mother board and chip to a Jetway Intel G31 series mother board and a 2.5 duel core chip set. I used my IDE hard drive that I used on the previous motherboard to boot up but as soon as my pc start to boot up and want to show the xp logo the computer reboots.
I only see the xp logo for about 3 second before it reboots.

Any assistance will be appriciated

hello, my system is HP Pavilion 15-e020sx Notebook PC. my current processor is Intel Dual Core i3-3110M 2.40-GHz processor (3.0-MB L3 cache, 1600-MHz FSB, 35 W). according to the manual, I can upgrade to Intel Quad Core i7-3632QM 2.20-GHz processor (SC turbo up to 3.2-GHz; 1600-MHz FSB, 6.0- MB L3 cache, 35 W)  but I have an Intel Quad Core i7-3630QM 2.40-GHz processor (SC turbo up to 3.40-GHz; 1600-MHz FSB, 6.0-MB L3 cache, 45 W)my concern is about the power difference between the two processors. what will happen if I installed this 45w processor in my system? I can see that the HM76 chipset support that CPU. I?ve upgraded the memory to 16GB, which according to the manual I?m only allowed up to 8GB. so maybe some fetchers are not documented.I can try But processor upgrade is not as easy as memory upgrade. regards 

A:processor upgrade from 35 to 45 w

Hi: I would be concerned with the higher wattage too, but the bigger concern would be that we have no idea if the BIOS in your PC has the microcode to support the 3630QM. Without the microcode to support the processor, it won't work at all. And since that processor is not listed as supported in the manual, I doubt it will work.

I have an IBM Aptiva computer with an AMD-K6 500mhz computer and 120 mb of SDRAM. I'm not sure what type of motherboard it is nor do I know where to find out (no help from the Aptiva website). IBM gives no information as to whether a processor upgrade is possible or not. I know it only has 2 slots for RAM though.

I would like to upgrade the processor and the RAM. Is there an easy way I can change the amount of slots available for RAM? Can I upgrade the processor? If so am I limited to type? The current specs say max 256 RAM - will this change if I change the processor?

CPU upgrades usually aren't very cost effective. With an OEM computer even determining what CPUs are compatible can be difficult. In a laptop CPUs are often not user replaceable.

A:What Processor can i upgrade to?

KT400A-8235 isn't a make, it's a chipset pair made by Via tech.

You need a Socket A (also known as Socket 462) CPU. I'm not familiar with them, but I think that the fastest CPU for it could be an Athlon XP 3200+. You'd need information on your particular motherboard to know whether its BIOS supports that. (Key feature: 400Hz FSB.)

You may not be able to buy a Socket A CPU at retail, because of the age of the platform. They seem to be readily available on eBay.

I can't say whether such an upgrade would be worth the effort.

A:Upgrade processor

BGA isn't a socket type - it means ball-grid array.  These CPUs are not replaceable.
The processor in this model is soldered to the system board.  In order to upgrade, you'll need to replace the entire mainboard -- which will come with the new CPU soldered to it.  If you replace the board with one having nVidia graphics, note that you will also need to replace the heatsink assembly (the one for your existing Intel board won't fit the nVidia board) and you may need to replace your power adapter (the Intel GPU requires far less power than the nVidia, so you'll need an upgraded AC adapter).
The boards you're looking for are listed here:

Scotty in a nutshell mate and after having quite few Toshibas I would not try the effort upgrading is quite involved and if you are not familiar with swapping out CPU's in laptops then it could need up you rendering it useless.

If it is a bit more performance you want the try this

I started out thinking I needed more RAM and now I'm looking at swappin' CPU's. I am currently running a single core AMD Athelon.
There are a bunch of different CPUs that will work with my MOBO. I have an AM2+ socket and here are the processors I have to choose from.

•AMD Phenom II Quad-Core
•AMD Phenom II Triple-Core
•AMD Phenom Quad-Core (A) 9xxx series (AM2+)
•AMD Phenom Triple-Core (T) 8xxx series (AM2+)
•AMD Athlon X4
•AMD Athlon X3
•AMD Athlon X2 (B) (AM2+)

Is there a major difference in the Phenom and Athelon??? The "Black" series???
I went to Newegg and found only 3 different CPUs to choose from. Tiger Direct has about 15. am on a budget so I can't just pick the most expensive and figure I am getting what's best. So...I am looking for input!
I love this place!!!

A:Processor Upgrade ???

There are several good sites that let you compare CPUs,such as Tom's Hardware and Anandtech. What a "good" CPU is depends on what you want to do with it. If you are not doing things that can use multiple cores, they only add cost, not performance. Blacks have the CPU multiplier unlocked, if you want to play with overclocking.

I currently have a Samsung R580 with an Intel Core i3 process which comes out for me as 2.13 GHz . I want to upgrade to an i5 which will give me anywhere from 2.66 GHz to 3.6 GHz with the i5. The total cost for the 3.66 GHz processor is just about $220.00 .

Is it worth it to upgrade my processor to play more demanding games without lag and choppiness.

Most importantly, is it compatible to remove my i3 Processor and replace it with an i5?

And, if I do so will it erase my data?

Thanks !

The quick answer is laptops CPU's are not upgradeable becasue the CPU is soldered in and not plugged into the motherboard.
If you are getting choppy video I would look into what else you may have running in the background. Seems you have a good video card and enough memory.

Whay software are you using to run your DVD movies? Are you sure you have the latest video drivers and software updates? These are just a few ideas I think you should check.
