Can you upgrade your processor and power supply?
Of course, however you have to know the type of processor you can handle. You may have a HP, DELL, COMPAQ, or other brand written on your computer. Go to their site and put in the product key on the computer, it should direct you to your model. Now you can look at the specs on your motherboard and it should tell you what your motherboard is aloud to upgrade to for you processor. As for the power supply =, you may want a specialist to look and see what kind of power supply you should buy depending on what your trying to do.
Hope this helps!
A full upgrade would be your CPU to a higher speed, your RAM for more memory and your video card so you can play faster games. But you have to be careful, your power supply that is installed was installed with the wattage for that particular system. If you do a full upgrade you may find that your power supply can no longer produce enough power to your motherboard, then you would have to add a new power supply also.
See, an RAM upgrade will give you the power to run more programs without any lag. If your current computer runs without hanging and you just want a speed boost then you may consider an upgrade in the processor. I recommend you to see Intel i3-3200 processor. It is much better then core2duo and not very expensive.
Will my antec vp450 power supply be able to produce enough power for an Asus nvidia geforce gtx 650 ti and an Asus m5a78lm usb3 motherboard and an amd bulldozer fx 4100 3.6GHz processor?
I'll try to answer this as best as I can. A processor doesn't supply power. Power-based, you'd be looking at the actual power supply. If a PC doesn't have enough power, the system can either stall when trying to access unavailable power, or simply shut down. However, if you mean something else, the processor can bottleneck you. I put in a $120 Graphic card into my system and saw no change in my computer. When I got a new motherboard and processor, my performance skyrocketed.
Do you need to upgrade your power supply you have installed a new processor the AMD Phenom 9750 from the AMD Phenom 9500 IT doesn't pass the POST test because it doesn't beep at all?
First of all you must ensure that your motherboard actually support the processor you have. If it is Supported, then maybe only in a newer Bios, and you would need to upgrade your Bios. If everything is a match and the processor just does not work, then take it out, check for damages and try to put it back in again. The chances are that it is actually faulty. There should be no need to upgrade power supply if computer has been running before with a different processor. If you are unsure regarding the powersupply, then try to disconnect power to harddrives and cd-roms. If this still not do the trick, then maybe the powersupply is faulty. The processor itself drains approx 95 Watts. A normal powersupply today support from 360Watts and up. You should be able to boot up with any powersupply supporting your motherboard. Be aware that some motherboards might need an extra powercable from supply to a square contact with 4 pins close to the processor. Normal colours on this cable is yellow and black. If your motherboard has got a connector for this and your powersupply does not have this cable, then this is the most likely cause of your problem.
This is mostly due to the micro processor within the main power supply, the major cause for this is that the processor has had a power spike or brown out, the latter being the key culprit. The TV would have suffed a dramatic loss in power then the power is restored and often blows the micro processor.
The power supply is what provides power for everything in your computer (processor, disk drives, hard drives, fans, etc.). If your power supply fails your computer can't turn on at all (no activity). The VGA card is your graphics card. If the VGA card fails your computer will still turn on but you won't see anything on your monitor (no graphics). The processor fan is the fan that sits on top and cools your main processor. If your processor fan fails and the computer continues to stay on it's likely that you processor will overheat and be ruined. If your main processor is fried your computer will turn on but windows will not boot up and you may see an error message on the screen.
Usually not, the only thing you may have to upgrade is your motherboard. Just keep in mind that some of the newer, more powerful video cards will require a certain wattage in your power supply. If your current PSU doesn't meet the requirements (or if it is already over-taxed by other components), you will need an upgrade.
