Having problems with your Intel (RK80532PG0881M) Pentium 4, 3 GHz Processor ?

Upgrade ram and maybe processor!

\015 I have a msi 915glm-v mother board micro atx\015\012pentium 4 cpu 2.66 ghz from control panel, system info\015\012think it is a intel i 915G(ddr1) found this on a website. \015\012\015\012Wanted to upgrade from 512 ddr pc3200 400mhz ram to a gig, but thought that if it was painless I could upgrade the processor also. \015\012\015\012I did not want to have to loose info or reload info on the computer. This is why I did not want to change the motherboard. In addittion did not want to drop lots of money into the pc. Wife doesn't want to replace my desktop, doesnt't want to spend the money. Her laptop works fine, but I like my large sound system and 19" monitor. The system will not play a cd and let me do several other things at the same time. Wired ethernet connection windows xp pro. Do not want to upgrade op system either, very happy with it. \015\012Do you have to change things to upgrade processor, or is it painless?\015\012\015\012Please respond to [email protected]\015\012\015\012Thanks, Dan.\015

Hey, da,
\015\012
\015\012I would double the RAM first with the same kind, then watch both PC and wife :), what happens. If they both smile, go for the processor but don't jump too high on the MoBo. Check the range on the board for highest speed clock before you buy a processor.
\015\012
\015\012You shouldn't have to reinstall your OS, but back up your important files just in case.
\015\012
\015\012Good luck Dan.
