Dell XPS R400 Pentium II

Q: Dell XPS R400 Pentium II

I'm trying to install XP on XPS R400, previously running 98. I'm getting error message invalid system disc but all original discs are lost. I reformatted drive thinking the XP would go right on but I'm stuck.

Preferred Solution: Dell XPS R400 Pentium II

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

It sounds like it's not booting to the Windows XP CD. You need to get into the BIOS setup and be sure the boot sequence is set to CDRom Drive, Floppy Drive and then hard drive in that order.

When the PC first powers on, you should see instructions to press a key to get into Setup. It's usually the DEL or F1 key. Once in the BIOS setup set the Boot Sequence and be sure to read the instructions on the screen to save the settings as you exit.

Let us know what happens.

not sure where to post this since this is my first time on board. I have a Dell Dimenstion XPS R400 running XP. My son was using this computer last week and now it displays a "Enter Password" box in the middle. You shut the computer off, it starts up again, normally, but then won't take you past the page where it lists the BIOS info, etc. I have tried F8 or ESC but it won't go anywhere unless the password is entered. I am not thinking it is the XP but am thinking it is a Dell password that is needed. I won't even download from the disk and reload XP.

Any suggestions on a password or on what to do? thank you in advance! mellow

Just want to let everyone know (for useful future information).  That I finally upgraded a Dell E510 I had from a Pentium 4 3.0 GHz Prescott HT to a Pentium D 3.4 GHz.  And the improvements were remarkable.  Computer specs were 4 GB of RAM,  ATI 512 MB 4670.  With that and the Pentium 4, I was unable to play StarCraft II with detailed graphics.  There was lag, and 15-20 FPS was considered smooth.  Now, FPS can get as high as 60 FPS when nothing is going on or small battles and 25+ FPS while big battles (4 versus 4).  And that is with more detailed shaders and better textures and models.  My other games run much smoother as well.
The exact model I got was a Pentium D 945 3.4 GHz, LGA 775, Model - SL9QQ.  Full information is in the link below.
I thought this might be useful in the future for people trying to figure out if this is worth it.  And it is.  You can find one on eBay for less than 40 American Dollars with shipping.  And most sellers offer DOA warranty, so you probably will not get ripped off.  I even saw some sellers offer 60 day warranty.   Just keep in mind these are used and are not new, but they are working fine, and the one I got was used but in perfect condition.  Plus, the...

A:Just upgraded my Dell E510 from a Pentium 4 3.0 GHz to a Pentium D 3.4 GHz, and it was worth is 100 percent.

Congrats on the successful upgrade. 
I too "upgraded" my E510 - I built a new PC with a Q6600 CPU
Actually my E510 was just an "interim" PC for a couple of years.  As I got into PC recording I found out I needed more than what the E510 could provide, even with upgrading more than I did (I upgraded the CPU from the original D805 to a D925) as whatever I did, it was still "old technology".   As that was a couple of years ago, and now even my Q6600 is "old technology".

I have a Dell XPS R400 with 196 Mb (32/32/128) of PC100 SDRAM running windows xp. I wanted to upgrade memory. Dell claims the machine can handle ~380 Mb of PC100 SDRAM. I checked around on-line, and it appeared that I could install PC133 SDRAM on this machine. My machine does not boot after I installed a single stick of 128 Mb PC133 SDRAM. It will boot with the original PC100 SDRAM. Any ideas?

This discussion indicates that my machine can handle more memory: http://www.techspot.com/vb/all/wind...XPS-R400-with-Intel-SE440BX2-motherboard.html How can I verify this?

I have a Dell XPS R400 with a Pentium II, 400 MHz processor running Windows 2000. (It originally had Windows 98). I currently have one socket filled with 128 MB of SDRAM (PC100, unbuffered, CL=2) . I would like to upgrade and add more memory.

Information from Dell says the computer supports 100 Mhz SDRAM 168 pin DIMM with a maximum size of 128 MB up to a total of 384 MB (3 sockets).

The motherboard is an Intel SE440BX-2. The documentation for it says it supports up to a 256 MB DIMM SDRAM for a total of 768 MB.

Why the discrepancy? Is it based on the OS? And how high can I go?

A:Memory Upgrade - Dell XPS R400 with Intel SE440BX-2 motherboard

The old W98 did not function properly with 256MB or over.
W2000 does not need more than 512MB, but works fine with up to 1GB.

Intel said:

System Memory Combinations
The motherboard has three, dual in-line memory module (DIMM) sockets. Minimum memory size is 16 MB; maximum memory size is 768 MB. The largest DIMM supported at this time is 256 MB using unbuffered 128 Mbit technology parts. The BIOS automatically detects memory type, size, and speed.Click to expand...

I would believe Intel rather than Dell.
Make sure you get PC100/CL2 SDRam, anything else does not work.
You can mix different MB-sizes memory-chips. So buy what you can afford.
Unless you do intensive graphics, even just 1 256MB-stick will do wonders.

HELP WANTED Insights -DELL vs. my old Pentium III System

I'm in a bit of a dilemma right now...I was having some problems with my old system which is a:
-Pentium III 800 MHz
-Memory: 256MB
-Windows XP Pro
-ATI Rage 128 GL AGP graphics card

and in the mean time had to order a Dell:

-Dimension E310 Series, Intel Pentium 4 Processor 521 (2.80GHz) and 1MB cache
-1GB DDR2 SDRAM at 533MHz
-Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelator 900

but I now got my old system up and running and I'm wondering if I should just upgrade the RAM to 512MB (old Rambus style), update my video card and send the DELL back for a refund????...., although the bus speed is only 100 on the Rambus...and in the meantime, save up for a better system..

I had to kinda jump into something because my wife needs the home computer for school/work daily and I was in need of something quick and inexpensive (paid ~$550 w/ 19 analog flat screen, 80GB HD)

I don't do too much intense gaming, mostly mess with movies/music although I did just pick up Half-Life 2 Episode 1 and I'm pretty sure my old ATI Rage 128 GL AGP graphics card isn't going to cut it and I'm wondering about the Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelator 900 that comes with the Dell..

any thoughts/ insights into this issue???

A:DELL vs. my old Pentium III System

any intergrated gfx are jsut crap and will not run most new games and if they do they will probibly be laggy, im not to sure on the rage but if its agp you can upgrade for under 100 dollors to play half life 2 on a decent setting, about the rambus it can be quite expensive to upgrade over 60 bucks per 256mb or more so i would look on ebay for it as many reatilas tdo not sell it any more, you can build yourself a decent system for about 700 dollors so i vote to save your $$ and build a completly new system

I am working on a Dell 3000 P4 3.0 that is giving me an orange light on the motherboard. One time on start up it gave me an orange light on # 1 and then 3 orange lights on 2-4(motherboard lights). I tried reseating the memory without change and I switched power supply with another Dell power supply without change. I believe the motherboard is bad. I am attempting to purchase another motherboard and do not know if the motherboard is a Prescott or Northwood. Does anyone know what kind of processor this may have? Thanks in advance!

A:Dell 3000 Pentium 4 3.0 Prescott or Northwood?

Not sure I follow. Prescott and Northwood are processor cores, not motherboard types. If you clean off your processor there will be an Intel SL### number on it, if you look up that number it will tell you what processor you have.

Here's the link to the Penitum M745 CPU Ark Page Intel M Processor 745 (2M Cache, 1.80 GHz, 400 MHz FSB) Specifications
Basically despite having a clear description of the fact that it has NX enabled along with the MMX and SSE and SSE2 although in CPU-Z it doesn't say about NX, it doesn't seem to allow me to upgrade to Windows 10.
There doesn't seem to be an enable NX option in the Dell revision A09 BIOS, although there is a patch, I don't think this is going to work necessairily, It's currently on Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit version as it's not a 64bit CPU.
Is there any chance there's a work around or indeed a possible cpu that waybe compatilbe with the Dell Precision M60 e.g. Pentium M760 etc that may have NX etc in order to upgrade it to Windows 10.
Please Let me know as soon as possible if there's several remedies to rectify the problem.

The system requirements for InDesign CS2 specify Pentium II or 4 (no processor speed identified), Windows 2000SP2 or XP, 256 MB RAM min.

The system requirements for InDesign CS3 specify Pentium 4 (no processor speed identified), Windows XPSP2, 256 MB RAM min.

Interestingly, the box for CS2 also specifies 256 kb L2 cache min.

I have the opportunity to buy a Dell Inspiron 6000 with a Pentium M processor (1.5 Ghz), 512 MB RAM, Windows XP/Pro.

I checked the specs of the Pentium M processor on the Intel website, but for this product, cache is specified differently (not as L2). There are 3 different models of 1.5 Ghz M processors, with cache specified at either 1 or 2 MB.

So, my question is:

What does the M cach spec mean, and is it equivalent to L2, or, if not, will the M cach spec work as well as the more traditional L2 cache for an application such as InDesign?

Thanks for your help.

A:Pentium III vs Pentium 4 vs Pentium M and Adobe InDesign

Sorry I cannot tell you what this M thing stands for...To be honest I have never seen something like that before...But I can tell you that all Pentium M CPUs have -as you already said- 1m to 2mb of L2 cache. But do not bother checking all this cache stuff, in my opinion you should check for a machine with more Ram and a better CPU. I believe it will suit better your needs. I have seen a lot of cheap laptops with 1gb of RAM and Core Duo or Core 2 Duo CPUs. By the way all Core 2 CPUs have at least 2mb of cache.

So, this is a computer of a client. First time it crashed was around one month ago when he was browsing web and clicked a link. Second to the client the computer has crashed once in a while when he tries to START one of his three installed browsers (IE, Chrome and Firefox). Note that this is what the client said to me; I actually didn't see it crash ANY time even when I stayed in his office this morning and he tried to reproduce the problem to me.

I managed to pick two dump files. The more recent one refers to NETIO.SYS that makes me to suppose that the problem may be a wireless outdated driver. I am puzzled with the previous one though that refers to aswMonFlt.sys and I have no idea what could be causing the issue.

Anyway, I am sending attached the .zip file I gathered with the "dm log collector".

After reading this thread http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/t/19379837.aspxI decided to give it a try and upgrade my Dell E510 from Pentium 4 to Pentium D 945. I upgraded different PC componentsin the past, but never a processor. I followed the instructions, removed the heatsink assembly, and took out the processor, but then I unwittingly scraped off thermal paste from the bottom of the heatsink.
I installed the new processor, put back the heatsink, and tried to start up the computer, but unfortunatelyit wouldn't start - no lights come up. I then put back the original processor - same thing, the computerdoesn't start. I read the manual once again, and realized that I shouldn't have removed the thermal paste,but can that really be a reason for the total failure ? Hard to imagine that a processor can overheat right away - or is it possible ? I can buy the thermal paste and apply it to the heatsink, but I wonder if anyone has any opinion or had a similar experience.

A:Dell E510 won't start after an attempt to upgrade to Pentium D 945, even with the original processor

I successfully replaced the OEM Pentium D 940 CPU in my E510 with the Pentium D 945. You MUST clean the old thermal paste off of the heatsink and then apply fresh thermal paste when you install the new CPU. Best to use isopropyl alcohol to remove the old paste. Also, a coffee filter works best for removing the old paste. I recommend using Arctic Silver thermal compound.
For me, the upgrade from 940 to 945 was not dramatic. The WEI subscore for the CPU only rose by 0.1 points. But, the D 945 is the best that the E510 can handle so it is what it is. The 945 generates less heat with a TDP of 95 W instead of 130 W for the 940 so that's a plus. Note also that my E510 came with copper performance heatsink because of the higher TDP of the OEM 940.
Upgrading from a Pentium 4 to the D 945 seems like a big jump. There are compatibility issues between the CPU and the motherboard and chipset. My E510 has the right motherboard for the D 945. Other motherboards will require you to press F1 when you boot. I don't have to do that. Moving from a Pentium 4 to the D 945 might not work. Depends on your motherboard.

I'm absolutely certain you won't be able to do that, period. That newer Pentium Dual Core is not in any way, backwards compatible with your motherboard.

Well, it is the same socket. So, it would go in, but it surely won't run. Intel 915 chipset is 32 bit only. Thus, you couldn't even go forward to Cedar Mill core P-4s, which are 64 bit.

Hi, I was looking at a used computer that I wanted to buy. The owner said it was a pentium III 733 mhz, but when I went to control panel/system/ it said pentium II Intel MMX technology. The pentium III sticker was on the front on the tower. What could be causing this?

Also what would you pay for this system:
128 mb RAM
20 GB hard drive
Cd burner
17" monitor
16 mb rage 3d video card
56k modem
windows 98
sound card
it's about 2 years old

Thank you!

I have a computer purchased back in '98 running a Pentium II 300 mghrtz chip. I recently purchased a Pentium II 450 and installed it, however the computer still is only running at 300. I know that jumpers and/or bus speeds need to be changed, but I don't know how. I looked all through the BIOS and can't find anything that refers to bus speed. I have changed the jumpers around but the system runs at 300 no matter what the jumpers are set at. The motherboard is a M6TLC, and I have the manual, but cannot seem to find out how to change the bus speed. There are jumper setting diagrams, but none that refer to a 450 mghrtz processor, and changing them does nothing anyway.
I wanted to up the speed on this old machine, put in a new bigger hard drive, put WINxp (it now runs 98se) on it and use it for backups. I'm beginning to think that this processor upgrade can't be done, but any advice would surely be appreciated.

A:Replaced Pentium II 300 with Pentium II 450, still running at 300 mghrtz

Hello!  I have an R400 that won?t restart when the power adapter is connected.  If a restart is attempted with the adapter connected, the status lights just cycle through repeatedly (hdd, caps, numlock, batt, etc).  As soon as the adapter is disconnected, the restart will resume.  Once the restart resumes, the adapter can be reconnected and the restart will continue. The adapter will charge the battery adequately.I have another R400 that?s fine from which I?ve tried the adapter and battery.On the problem laptop, I?ve tried a known good different hard drive with a fresh install of Win 10.I suspect a hardware problem of some sort but I don?t want to shotgun it if you know what I mean.Thoughts?Thank!

Hello,I just joined the Forum.I have a Thinkpad R400 that has recently stopped charging its battery. More details.Model 74401 Gb disk, dual boot Win7 and LinuxMint 18.Recently upgraded RAM from 4Gb to 8Gb. New RAM is recognized.The "results" are the same with or with out Dock attached."AC Power Status" LED remains dark.New battery, former battery not charging either (old battery causes "Battery Status" LED to flash orange).New battery lights up Battery Status LED, and hovering over battery icon will show percentage of charge and not charging.New AC power supply, both new and old, read 20 volts DC at the yellow barrel connector.Will not boot by AC power supply only (battery removed, error message about low battery and powers off)I tried the AC and battery removed and 10 one second pushes on Power Button followed by holding Power Button down for 30 seconds, no change.I removed (under Win7) the Microsoft ACPI and Battery drivers under Device Manager. no change.Battery (new or old) does not charge when laptop is powered off and AC power supply connected. Problem may have begun several weeks ago when I closed the laptop without shutting down and put it in my backpack.A week or so later, its battery was dead when I pulled it out to use it again. Any ideas? Thanks,Fordy2

Yesterday I had this issue with my Lenovo R400 and I alredy solved but i want to post the solution on this forum for other people.  The ProblemMy laptop entered in hibernation mode and in the morning that i tried to turn it on it didnt. I pushed the power button i see the lights of 1 and A turned on and off twice, but didnt show the boot screen.. The screen was blank doing nothing. Solution 1Disconnect the power cable and battery and push the power button 11 times and in the 11th push the button for 30 seconds. Connect power and push power button. Then you can connect the battery. Solution 2 (The one that helped me)Removed the power cable, the battery and the internal battery of CMOS and let it disconnected all for 15 hours. I dont now the exact time that it have to be disconected but i read a post saying 15, maybe with few hours if enought.  Then you connect the cable and push F1 (until beeps)  and turn on the Laptop to enter in Supervisor Mode to set date and time F10 and exit. Connect the CMOS's battery and normal battery and is all. WARNINGIf you reset the CMOS and the laptop have a Supervisor Password enabled and you dont have it  you will be in big problems. Mine laptop didnt have it. I was luck because i didnt know it. Without the Supervisor password you cant set the date/time and the laptop wont boot again. You will need to change the MotherBoard. Or maybe you can find another solution but wont be easy. So be carefull about... Read more
