Upgrding an Emachines cpu

by 19dullesdrivedumontnj0762 / February 5, 2006 5:25 AM PST

I had recently got an Emachines T6412 with an AMD athlon 64 3400+ and I believe that that cpu has a 754 pin socket type, but SiSoftware sandra and other informational programs like cpu-Z, is reporting that it is pluged into a 939 slot. I do eventually want to upgrade the cpu and I need to know what socket it is. If it is 754 I will get an amd athlon 64 3700+, and if it is 939 I want to get the 4000+. and I don't want to go out and buy a new cpu to find out that it is the wrong socket type, so if you can please clear this up for me, I'd appreciate it.

ps. the mother board is a Micro-Star Ms-7184

MSI 7184

The 7184 is an OEM board made for Emachines. You will need to check with Emachines for the specs. for that model. MSI offers no support for OEM versions.

If you can't see the CPU type during bootup and you cannot tell from you system DOCs, download and run
CPU-Z. It will give you detailed info about the CPU which should help you to determine the exact CPU type.

Will this affect your current warranty ?

Let us know.

Don't forget to try CPU-Z...it gives some very valuable info about the CPU, the motherboard and the RAM.

It is a 939 Socket..

If you would like to know all of your CPU specs and most Mobo Specs Download CPU-Z fromhttp://www.cpuid.com/download/cpu-z-132.zip you need WinRAR to unzip the file

My machine is an Emachines 3500+ with same MOBO and a AMD Athlon 64...Socket 939

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?
