I have a Dell Dimension E520 it had the Blue Crash Screen, I replaced hard drive, memory and got a CPU upgrade Intel E6300 at 2.8 upgraded bios from dell and when I put in the new processor it just sits there. I can put in the old E6300 1.86 works find until it crashes again. Any thoughts?????
As we already stated, almost every new review starts with a mention of Intel Core 2 Duo processors. That is understandable because the release of Intel's new architecture is a mini revolution that brings CPU over to a new level of performance and power consumption. It's just these specifications that resulted in that almost all the PC enthusiasts somehow or other are planning for migration to a new platform (or have already migrated to it). Therefore, an important issue of choosing the right motherboard aimed at Core 2 Duo comes up. It should be noted that all the motherboards of the previous generation are incompatible to new processors (although they are of LGA775 Socket). And it is neither the developers nor chipsets that are to blame for this situation, but it is a result of the fact that the motherboards were developed before receiving the Core 2 Duo specifications. Therefore, the power supply module of these chipsets does not allow using Conroe processors (a module meeting the VRM 11 specification requirements is required). In other words, all the previous motherboards based on i975X and NVIDIA nForce4 SLI Intel Edition chipsets, however good they are, are being sent to the garbage heap of computer history. And we (users) start choosing new motherboards.
