Preferred Solution: Replacement mobo for my old DP45SG

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.)

Can your Dell case hold a full ATX motherboard?

Also, if your CPU cooler is held in with 4 screws you will find you'll be needing a new cooler to go along with the new motherboard.

You may also find your new motherboard will not fit in the Dell case, so you might also need a new case to go with that.

Hi all,

I have a MSI k7 pro via kt 266a mobo with an athlon xp1600, served me well, however time has moved on.
1/ MSIs website states the max cpu my mobo can take is xp2100 (upgradeing cpu would be cheapest option). Does anyone know any different?

2/ There are some good "bargains" in mobos, as low as 80 bucks Australian, able to take an AMD 64 3200 , based on SIs chipsets. Of the chipsets available, eg, Sis , Via , nforce, are folk noticing any "real world" difference between them.

I occasionally edit and render video-rendering times not a key consideration and occasionally play Lomac and Il2 flight sims. Thats it. Apart from surf the net.

Your input appreciated. Thanks

The HP ProDesk 400 G1 MS motherboard is bad.  It is a MS 7860 v1.2.    It has a special connector for the USB ports on the mobo.   Can somebody recommend a new mobo replacement? Thanks. Darryl

My mobo has gone bad. I ordered a replacement. It is not the same brand but the hardware specs are the same. My question is. Will I have to reformat one of my hard drives to get it to boot? I have a dual boot system. I do not want to lose data on either.

I have a computer that the MOBO and CPU were fried.
I am looking for a new MOBO and CPU.
Cheap but good to work with what I have.

Here is what the comptuer was.
It was a Compaq Presario S3000Z Product# P8654X
It was a AMD 2000, It had 512 Ram DDR 266 2.5CL
It had onboard video and Sound.
It had 3pci and one agp slots.
2 of the Pci slots are used by a Modem and a IEE 1394 Card
And it looks like a 250W Bestec powersupply.

I am looking for a MOBO and CPU that would work and fit in here.
Here is one I found.
and here is another.
Would these work?
Or what would you suggest

I have concluded that one or both of my existing AMD Athlon 64 and Jetway K8M8MSR2 mobo, socket 754 have gone toes up and must be replaced.

I have found the following mobos on ebay:


with the AMD at apx $25 and both ASUS less than $20. Will anyone with experience on any of these 3 boards please share your recommendation with me?

While considering replacement/upgrade, is it sensible to stay with a socket 754? If it is not significantly more to move to a later/better socket? If the latter, which and why? TIA.

A:Replacement mobo and cpu?

Please fill out your system specs in your profile so we can help you better. As for your query, Socket 754 is practically dead. An AM2 motherboard, CPU and RAM will cost you around $200 and last long enough, besides being a major step up from your old rig.

Hey all, New to the forum. Happy to be amongst you. I have a eMachine T234 for my daughter and it keeps shutting down.

I've read a lot here & done all the checks. Also replaced the PSU with a Dynex 400w, upgraded with a 500g HD and installed a clean copy of the OS. Vista Home 32bit.

I cleaned all fans checked temps and it still does the same. After reading all the other posts about emachines I am confident that it is crap also. But, this is my daughters and I want to fix it for her.

What motherboard can I replace the old one with that is comp/w the Athalon AMD 64 and any other saved parts? Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Mike

A:MoBo Replacement?

I have zero knowledge of eMachines so here goes.
Is the system actually a T2341 ? If so then...
Is this your board ?
If it is then your part number for a direct replacement is MBEM2124L7V2 (or LV7MM2)
According to my search it's an AMD Socket A (462 pin) motherboard of mATX (micro ATX) form factor.
I don't know where you're based- I assume from your username you're from the U.S.- so I'd check eBay and other online auctions first before trying etailers/retailers - the part is fairly old and buying new will most likely be costly.
A quick search of Socket A mATX boards brings up:
ASRock K7VM3
Foxconn K7S741GXMG-6L , the site linked also carried a number of DFI boards

recently I took my laptop to repair (as I had a warranty with bestbuy).
The problem was that the motheboard had died and I could no longer turn on the computer.
All the files stayed in the laptop which had winXP with a password for entry.

When they returned the laptop, the logging had dissapeared as they had eliminated the password.
I was wondering, why would they need to access my account (which was an admin account with my nickname) after reinstalling an identical motherboard.

Thank you for any replies!

You can replace it with any AM2, AM2+ socket motherboard. I'm partial to ASUS motherboards with Nvidia chipsets. I'm sure everyone here will have a differnt preference but that's what I like. Just go to a site like Newegg/Tigerdirect direct or the UK equivalent and find one in your price range with the features you want.

A:Mobo Replacement Tutorials

Ariesjill: Both tutorials are good and should get the job done.
Just be sure that you use only the correct # of standoffs and that they are in the correct place.
I always install the CPU/hsf on the board outside the box so that I have all the room I need to install the mobo.
Some cases are so small that it is advisable to remove drives, PSU, etc., so you have room to move around in the box.
Have fun.

Same story as everyone ever who has an emachines.

So i checked around and determined i have a microatx and im curious if i can use a atx board. theres room inside the case and the dimensions are in the atx (the case's dimensions).

also has anyone found a good replacement? i want to be able to use my front panel 2x usb, mic, and headphones. it was a celery 2.7ghz with 24fsb or such and im looking at an amd.

i want 3 pci slots and either pcie or agp (leaning towards pcie) and to be able to use my current ram 512mb i think 2700 ddr dimm.

ive checked tiger and newegg but i have little experience with mobos so can someone recommend something. i will need a decent fan/heatsink.

You cant have PCI-e, you have socket 478. Ill find a good AGP board. But that processor will DEFINITELY hold back any video card 5500+. My 2.8Ghz celeron d holds back a POS 5500FX, consider a new computer.

The cheapest mobo, that supports PCI-e is for a laptop, and costs 130$.

Hello everyone;

I recently built a system to the following specs;

Intel DP45SG M/B
Intel e7400 Core 2 Duo CPU
2x 1GB DDR3 Kingston 1066MHz PC3-8500 RAM
MSI 8400GS Video Card
Seagate 500GB SATA2 HDD
LG Optical Drive
Earthwatts 500W PSU
Windows Vista Business 32 bit

System build went ok, although from first boot forward and consistently, the board issues a short beep prior to POST and one long beep immediately afterwards. There is no indication of this being an error anywhere. Removed 1 stick of RAM, same thing, swapped out for the other, same thing, took out both and the system won't boot at all (i.e., no POST). I am not having any device manager flags come up and nothing in the BIOS event viewer to indicate an error.

Anyone facing a system that works but still likes to beep at you?

A:Windows not booting after replacement of MOBO

Your best bet after replacing a motherboard is a clean install. It's possible a repair install will work - if you want to try follow the instructions below. But if it doesn't work you'll be relegated to a format and clean install.Boot to the XP CD and choose the SECOND repair option, allowing XP to install on top of itself. After completion you'll need to go to Windows Update and download & install all updates (except for hardware & driver related updates, which should never be downloaded from Windows Update - only from the OEM websites). Here is a clear tutorial on how to perform a repair install:

A:Need help selecting a compatible replacement mobo

I would try looking on eBay for an exact replacement.

First, when you swap motherboards to a different chipset it rarely ever boots. So you will need to reinstall the copy of Windows - the recovery discs or partition will no longer work either.

Secondly be aware that once you change the motherboard this will no longer be an HP and as such you are not allowed to use the Windows license that the system shipped with, so you'll be required to buy a new copy of Windows.

BIOSTAR boards aren't the best.

I recently purchased a foxconn barebone system. I got it up and started with an athlon xp 2200+ cpu. Evrything was working fine, until I decided to update the BIOS. Long story short, I had to get a new mobo. So I ordered the same exact mobo and installed and replaced the cpu and evrything else, but it won't boot up. The monitor shows nothing. I have all fans spinning. After power up, the power led comes on and stays on, the HDD led comes on for a split second (the HDD doesn't sound like its trying to move at all), and I hear a short beep. I tried clearing the CMOS by moving the jumper as well as taking out the battery. I tried the removing evrything but cpu and memory procedure and I get nothing . What could be the problem? I could use any advice and suggestions, guys. Thanks.

Hi all. I recently RMA'd a motherboard from asus (asus sabertooth z87) and have received a new one. I have installed it and I am up and running. Windows 8 has booted fine and everything except it seems there is no detection of my Ethernet connection. I was wondering if this could have something to do with drivers since I technically got a new motherboard even though its still a sabertooth z87. Do I need to reinstall OS? Can I just try to update LAN drivers? Any help is appreciated! thanks!

A:Need to reinstall windows 8 after mobo replacement?

Re-installing the OS for driver issues is a bit dramatic. You should be able to correct the issue by re-installing the drivers in question. That is unless hardware is bad, in which case reinstalling the drivers or OS would not help.

Download and install the latest LAN driver from this link.

A:Funky goin's on after mobo replacement

Hi XPeeved, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Did this copy of Window XP have SP1 when you installed it? If it didn't then it will only show the 128GB that you are seeing, once you installed the SP1 or higher you should then be able to see the remainder in the Disk Manager as unallocated space. If this is the case you can format this unallocated space and then access it.

This old IDE, is it the only device on the IDE cable?

How is the jumper set on the old drive, and which connector (middle or end) is it connected to?

Do the combo drives show up in My Computer?

Do you see any errors (red X) or warnings (yellow exclamation mark) in the Device Manager?

You should be able to disable the floppy in the BIOS.

I'm going to install a new motherboard in a damaged Dell Optiplex 740 and I was wondering if I install the mobo in the same way the damaged one was and not changed anything else, will I still have to reinstall Windows or will it boot and run as it did with the old mobo?

A:Dell Optiplex 740 Mobo replacement

If you use an exact replacement Dell motherboard it will work OK. If you use a different motherboard then you have a "different" PC and the Dell OEM OS is no longer legally valid. It is only valid for the PC it was delivered with, or an exact replacement (but you will probably have to activate it with Microsoft).

Another issue, Dells, generally, do not support (fit) non-Dell motherboards (or motherboards for other Dell models). The motherboard mounting holes can be different and the back panel I/O panel on many cases is solid and not an insert like a standard ATX case.

Have you tried the other RAM module in Slot O? If not try that as one of the memory modules could be bad.

What type of Kingston RAM do you have? I worked the Dell forums for many years and saw many problems with Kingston "Value RAM" memory. Other Kingston was OK but the Value RAM almost always caused problems.

Just replaced my failed motherboard and all appears to be going well except that the installed DVD drive which was working fine before the mobo failed will not read the DVD of drivers supplied with the board. However the drive will read CD's which I find odd.

I've tried the DVD in another computer to confirm that it isn't a faulty disk and it was opened and read fine.

Device manager shows the drive as connected and working correctly.

On the problem machine I have :

Uninstalled from device manager and rebooted.
Upgraded the DVD drive firmware to latest version
Tried to upgrade the driver via microsoft update
I'm at a bit of a loss now.
Any ideas please?

A:Replacement MOBO, CPU Upgrade, W8 Reinstall Required?

I would think that if you are using the same motherboard, things should work the same. However, changing out the CPU and RAM may make a difference.

If Windows 8 runs true to form, the new CPU and RAM should be recognized; however, as we all know, Windows 8/8.1 don't exactly conform.

I'm guessing that you have already checked to be sure that the new CPU and RAM are compatible with the motherboard. If so, then the worst case scenario is that you would have to reinstall . . .

Is this a self-built system or an OEM?

If it's an OEM, I would first install the new mobo and the old CPU and RAM. I'm pretty sure you'd get a boot from there. The reason for this is that if your system is OEM, your product key is embedded and if it becomes necessary to reinstall, you'll need that embedded key.

I use the free version of Belarc Advisor: Belarc - System Management For The Internet Age. Software license management, IT asset management, IT security audits and more. to get MS product keys, and there are some others that have been published here, such as this tutorial: Product Key - Find for Windows 8

I had to replace the MoBo on my HTPC which had an Intel board and a P4 3.0ghz processor. A friend gave me a Gigabyte K8N Pro-SLI board to use which has a AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800 (dual core) processor. So far, the installation has been a nightmare. It's been slow, files have been corrupt and I'm essentially on my 10th time trying to install Home Premium 32 bit.

Installation is very slow, it can take up to 3 hours just to complete. I didn't have this problem with my old Intel board. Once the OS is installed, I again have problems with installation, this time with programs and windows updates. All windows updates fail and installation of such programs such as iTunes can take 45 minutes. But the OS seems to run normally..

I just swapped motherboards, purchased Windows XP Home Edition with SP2, and did a repair install without the Recovery Console, as instructed by a manual I read.

After I configured everything, and activating Windows through the internet during the installation wizard of Windows XP, I tried updating through the Windows Update on the Microsoft website.

It tells me I currently have 77 updates available. The updater downloads all 77, then quickly notifies me that all 77 updates have failed to install, listing all of them that failed.

This happens when I try to update Windows Media Player 10 to WMP 11 also.

Any ideas on how I can resolve this issue, please write back. Thanks in advance.

I'm upgrading a computer and I'm having difficulties with loading. I am replacing just the mother board, processor chip, and the ram chip. I am re-using the hard drives, cd/dvd drives, and everything else.

I've upgraded from:
an AMD chip to a P4 3.0e w/ HT
an unknown AMD mobo to a DFI PS85-BL ver B1 mobo

I will be using 512 mb ddr 400 pc3200 kingston ram

I already called DFI and they said that I need to unistall the system drivers. Of course, I tried uninstalling all device drivers and then shut down and rebuilt computer. When I booted, the computer asked for safe mode or boot normally. No matter what I select, it automatically reboots.

Any ideas, instructions, or definite fixes?

A:New Mobo LED green, PSU/Mobo fans won't spin

Run the motherboard outside the case with just CPU and memory installed. See if it starts. If not, the CPU could be fried or you have a defective motherboard. I hope you didn't use the old power supply with the replacement motherboard, if you did, you probably fried the 2nd motherboard

Hey guys, I am building my second system and am just wondering what mobo to get.

I don't full understand the advantages that a 64bit system will bring but I know that a dual processor will do wonders for my work flow (I have a 3D modeller who renders alot). I was just wondering if you know of a dual processor mobo which is also 64bit. That would be the best of both worlds in my opinion.

Any advice you can give would be great.

A:64 bit mobo vs dual processor mobo?

If you are going AMD, get a socket 939 motherboard with the nforce4 chipset, like this one for example:

Sorry I didnt read the guide of how to make a good post.

I have an Emachine for about 4yrs now. 2 weeks ago I turned it on and it turned right back off, I thought it was the power supply, but it wasnt. I took it to Best Buy, told me it was the motherboard. I dont want to spend money on another mother board since emachine sucks, I already spent $400 last year to get my cd drive fixed. U guys say an ATX motherboard is good and cheap, its way better than an emachine mobo. The problem is I dont know which ATX mobo(a good one) to get for my emachine. My emachine is a W350.

Please respond

A:Which ATX mobo should I get to replace with my emachine mobo

The tricky part of this is you will probably have to not only replace the motherboard, but also the power supply, processor and memory

Here's an example:

The power supply is old and you wouldn't want to damage a new motherboard would you. The old memory is DDR. The new board takes DDR2 memory. You may be able to use the old CPU or processor

I have an eMachine desktop that Iam repairing for a friend,
we have come to the conclusion (from experience) that because it is dead
even when trying to turn it on that it has suffered from Capacitor Plague
(Perhaps in the PSU then damaging the MoBo)
A new PSU has been tried and it still doesn't work
WHAT Type of 'cheap' motherboard could I replace the current one with?
it has a Celeron processor so we will be looking to conserve that..
I was looking at this...
or (incase his CPU is socket 478)
will this one be compatible?
My friend just wants a cheap solution...
Ive recommended the new PSU / MoBo and extra RAM (at least another 256Mb to
bring it to 512)

any recommendations would be helpful....

I replaced the mobo on my Dell 5510. Purchased from Dell. Sticker on mobo says BIOS ver A05. About every other day I get blue screen and physical dump of memory. My system info says my BIOS ver is A07. How do I go about changing BIOS? Is it as simple as pulling battery for 15 seconds? Some have offered this suggestion but I get a little worried at "friends" advice.

A:Replaced MOBO on Dell 5510 BIOS sticker on MOBO says A05, system in still has BIOS of A07

Removing the battery won't change the BIOS version. You need to download the version you require from the Dell site. From Windows you "flash" the BIOS. Take your time preparing for this. If anything goes wrong you will wreck your motherboard.

A:No mobo light, new PSU, new mobo

Well, I don't know about a motherboard that requires "400 Watts". I think that the CPU, and even more importantly, the graphics card combine to set the tone of how much power is likely to be drawn.

Moving along, the "clicking" you heard could be the PSU cutting out due to a short circuit. Check the board to case standoffs, and make certain every one you have in place, has solder lands under the screws. (These are intended to be grounded). If there is no solder land under a screw, remove that particular standoff. BTW did you hook up the ATX (4 pin) connector, the plug near the CPU, and did you connect the PCIE- 6 pin connector to the video card? (This assumes the card you're using needs one)

That bad news is that you may have damaged the board, if indeed it was a short.

Is all of the RAM recognized by the motherboard and listed in the BIOS? Is all of the RAM listed in Windows System Properties?

Typically the RAM is recognized and works, or it doesn't. Try testing the RAM one at a time to verify they both work properly.

My computer has been making a humming sound after it has been on a while. I took off the sides and blew out the dust, and alot came out of the fans. I noticed that one of the fans blades did not turn freely when I blew air on it. Hooked up the power cable and turned it on and the fan did not turn. Once and awhile it tried to turn but then would stop again. The fan is mounted on the motherboard and has ABIT printed on it. It is the smaller of the two fans mounted on the motherboard. How difficult is it to replace and what is it called? Is it the motherboard fan? Thanks for any advice.

I don't know where this thread belongs, or even if it's relevant to tsg, but here goes: A friend has a Dell XP desktop. She lost her original installation discs, and called Dell for a replacement. They sent her a new XP Home CD, and charged her $180. The same as if she had never owned a Dell PC, and had gone out and bought an XP CD for full retail price. It doesn't sound right to me. I thought that you would pay for some kind of service charge if your installation CD got lost or damaged. Did Dell make a mistake? Is this normal business procedure?
