1.4 cpu upgrade kit (socket 370)

by jbndhs / October 7, 2004 12:47 PM PDT

I have a older custom made pc. It has a AMD-K6 processor. I was looking on and found a 1.4 cpu upgrade kit for older socket 370 systems. How can I tell if that is what I have? Also the kit comes with a "Tualatin" Celeron 1.4 GHz processor. I have heard of Celeron but what is Tualatin? The description claims to give faster performance (up to 1.4 GHz) from your socket 370 system without replacing the M/B. I also found one for "slot 1" but I know that is not what I have by the way it plugs into the M/B.

Thanks I guess. I knew it was to good to be true. Do you know of anything like that for a socket 7?

Evergreen products

Evergreen cpu upgrades were common some time back. They supplied that for socket-7 setup. While they're dated, if you find them they should be rasonable in pricing if new, but ebay may have *used* there. Google for Evergreen products.

You have a Socket 7 system and socket 370 is not compatible.

Socket 370 upgrade for GX100
by Dimensions5 / January 27, 2005 1:07 PM PST

Does anyone know offhand whether socket 370 upgrades are compatible with Dell Optiplex GX100? They are compatible with GX110, but perhaps the difference is too significant?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
