My friend accidentally broke off one of the pins on his processor, and now it won't work. He needs a replacement. Its a dell Inspiron 1100 with Intel socket 478, 400mhz FSB. Now I saw this processor on newegg: processor . It says for desktop computer's, but its specs meet the requirements for his motherboard. I was thinking maybe it just says this because it gets real hot, and he just bought a new heatsink and some arctic silver 5. Thanks for reading this post!

Don't get a Celeron. Spend the extra $50 and get something that will carry you further into the future. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819116027

If it has celeron processor in it its not going to benifit from the P4 if it will even run at all.. The celeron has FSB of 400 the p4 you listed runs at FSB 800.

If the board is designed for a celeron with FSB 400 it most likely will not since its a manufactured computer they will match the motheboard to the cpu they wont spend the money on a faster motherboard.. There are however some aftermarket boards for a desktop that support 800,533,400 FSB Like These

The Dell Inspiron 1100 is, as you noted, a notebook or laptop computer.

Unless you can find specific information where that CPU has been successfully replaced by a higher end or more powerful one, I would not recommend you get anything other than an exact CPU - in this case it looks like it was a Celeron 2.0GHz.

While it is possible that the systemboard could handle another chip, there are other considerations that my have to be taken into account, not the least of them is heat dissapation. Also, Dell's BIOS on that system may have problems with any other CPU.


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
