Dell Dimension 9150 motherboard

Postby devagral » Wed Oct 28, 2009 8:16 pm

Dear friends, this is my first post in this forum.My computer is a 3 year old Dell dimension 9150 and now it freezes at Bios screen. Bios is 'A 07'.
I have been advised that it's motherboard has become faulty and needs to be replaced.
I request you all to help me in this matter, by advising which motherboard should be used to replace the original one, as I'm unable to identify it.Also no information is available in this matter with Dell people. Thanks.

You have a btx format motherboard. Ascendtech has an Intel G965 micro btx board for $44.95 with 2 memory slots that should work with your dell btx case. Or, buy.com has a new Intel D945GRW with 4 memory slots for $64.99 shipped. These boards are much cheaper than your original dell board, which sells on ebay for about $200 used. You may need some help to change out the board, and you may have to reinstall windows, so find a dell windows dvd before ordering any motherboards. Draw a diagram as you go when you start disconnecting stuff. Or, look for your dell case-board-power supply on craigslist. Don't spend too much; Mid January Dell will have some deals on desktop systems for around $400 new for their end of quarter which ends at the end of Jan.

Hi,
Have you tried this solution. I am concerned that I will not be able to fit Intel mobo into Dell case. I hear the location where screws go to attach to case is deferent in Dell cases.

umm that was about 10 years ago. Dell has learned a bit here and there.

Hi friends, thanks for your interest in my problem.I could not try the solution suggested posted by Eric, mainly because i'm living in India, and it might not be possible to procure that mobo.
Instead, I took a mild iron sheet app. the mobo size, drilled holes in it according to dell cabinet, drilled holes in this iron sheet according to a new atx mobo, fixed iron sheet in cabinet and then fixed new mobo on this sheet.Everything is working ok.

Converted your casing to ATX. Nice touch. Did you make pictures of this process?

Take some now, would be nice to see the finished product, even for our own reference.

FWIW, you wouldn't have had a problem at all fitting a BTX board into your Dell, BTX is a standard developed jointly by Dell and Intel. Gateway used it, as well. The only company I'm aware of that uses BTX in a non-standard, proprietary format that I'm aware of is Apple. Go figure.

Just one follow up question. Does Intel Bobo have the connector for Front Panel that Dell has(headphones, USB, lights).
I am reading that that connector is proprietary?
Thanks,
