The Dell 1100, according to Google, takes socket 478 so that board won't work. If this is the case, this one will do:

Bottom line in this situation is, anything you buy will be better than the board that your Dell machine came with. Dell make the boards themselves and they're essentially rubbish.

Let me guess you can't upgrade the graphics card? I had the same problem with an MDG pc, it came with onboard graphics and no AGP slot. Although you might have other reasons for changing it, just guessing.

Paste a condensed copy of the PC Wizard report. Please don't paste the entire report. All we need to know is the bits about the processor, in particular its socket type and then we'll take it from there.
