I had a HP m1070n that just crashed on me. It has a 1GB PC3200 memory module in it. I have an eMachines T1842, which came with 128mb of DDR PC2100 memory and CPU specs that follow:

"The eMachines T1842 is equipped with a single 1.8 GHz Intel Celeron Processor. The CPU has 128 KB of L2 cache memory. The main board chipset is an Intel 845GL with a front speed bus of 400 MHz. The standard RAM on this computer is 128 MB of DDR SDRAM with a speed of 266.0 MHz.

I have two questions: A) Will the PC3200 DDR memory work in the eMachine? Both require 184 pin memory modules. 2) Can I upgrade the CPU in the eMachine with a SL6XJ Intel Celeron Processor 2.30GHZ/128/400?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This will get the specs of your computer.

I will run Speccy ASAP, but in the meantime, does anyone know for sure whether or not it'll work?

Chances are the ram will work, but it may run at 266 MHz instead of its native 400 MHz speed. As far as the CPU, it depends on any limitations of the motherboard, a BIOS update may be necessary in order to run a faster CPU.

You would rather get a ram that has the same speed.

Where could I find the motherboard limitations? And, if I do need a BIOS update, where can I find that update. I also have a CPU from a HP m1070n that I was wondering if it would work: Intel P4 520 2.8 GHz with hyperthreading (HT)
*800 MHz front side bus *Socket LGA775. I assume that it won't work, but thought I'd ask. Thanks again for all your help guys.

p.s.: Nevermind on that P4 CPU I asked about. I just noticed the emachine is a 478 socket, and the P4 is a LGA775 socket.

To find out the motherboard limitations you need to first post speccy.

Just downloaded Speccy, however it'll be tomorrow before I can post the results, as I do not have the computer with me at this time.

Well speccy is.a.good thing there is no way of finding out the exact specs of what will work without speccy or the manual and since I can't find the manual this is where we stand. You are correct though a pga 775 cpu will not work in a socket 478 motherboard and whether the faster ram will work is dependent on the motherboard and the cpu used.
