I want to speed up my Dell Optiplex GX280 Desktop by replacing the Pentium 4, 2.8Ghz Processor with a 3.6Ghz Processor.
I have tried 2 different Pentium 4, 3.6Ghz Processors with no luck. At boot up, Got system HALT due to incompatable processor message.
The computer BIOS is the latest, Ver. A08.
The O.S. is Windows XP Pro Serv Pack 3.
The hard drive is SATA 320 Gb
The Memory is 3Gig Ram
All Dell recommended driver updates have been installed.
I know it can be done, but I don't know how. Can anyone help me out? Thank You, scepter42
