OK, I did a really stupid thing. I was cleaning the inside of the case and broke a pin on the processor on my PowerSpec. I am SO upset with myself! I don't suppose it's still usable? I want to replace the processor since all my data and apps and utils etc. are set up just the way I wanted. The PowerSpec has Win XP Pro. I tried the cheapest save: I put the HD from the PowerSpec on the eMachine as the slave. eMachine running Win XP home. I can see a lot BUT I can't get to my docs. I THINK it's because I was running as Administrator with a password on the PowerSpec. I tried to create an Administrator user on the eMachine but it said the Admin account was already present. I can't see it. I have Admin rights on both (machines? OS? HD?). But I'd much rather get the PowerSpec running again. I was told by a techie the motherboard probably got fried so if I buy a new processor I would be throwing away my money. I don't have a lot of that. He suggested putting Linux Ubuntu (with?) NTFS-3G. He said I'd be able to get all my data, even if it's password protected. I'm a little nervous doing that since I've heard Linux is complicated to install and I'm not familiar with the commands. And besides, I want the PowerSpec back! So, all that to preface my questions. I did TWO days!!!! of research. The board is Intel D865PERC. I'm not sure what you need but the PowerSpec had an Intel P4 processor with Hyper Thread Tech at 3.2 GHz. I think it uses a 478 socket. Memory is 1GB composed of 2-512MB PC3200 SDRAM 184-pin DIMMs. Level 1 cache is 8KB and 12KB of trace cache. Level 2 cache is 512KB. Bus is 800MHz frontside. Chipset is Intel 865PE. I don't know what all this means! I've looked out to buy a new processor but I'm not sure exactly what I need to match up. Bus speed? Clock speed? Cache? And what the heck's packaging type? I've seen tray v. box. And core stepping. My spec sheet says 9, but I couldn't find that on the Intel site at all. And I have BIOS settings, the system resource report, and everything from DevMan if it would help. But my spec sheet said dual processors. I don't understand this. Is a single composed of 2? So could you please tell me what I need to match up? Do I have to buy Intel? Prices vary from $66.00 to over $700.00. What's that all about?! Also, I think I need to buy a new heat sink and fan. (?) Thermal goop? Please save my PowerSpec. Thank you VERY much.
