Dell :: Upgrade Processor On An Inspiron 9300

Feb 29, 2008

I recently checked prices of laptop processors and found a 3.06ghz Pentium 4-M (socket 478, 533 fsb) for $55. This is the right socket, and I know the Inspiron 9300 can handle a 533 fsb, but is this processor going to work? I'm currently running the 1.6ghz at 533 fsb.

I know this processor was never an option for the 9300, hence the concern, but if it'll work for $55 why not? And, if it doesn't work, what is the highest I can move up to?

Dell :: Inspiron 9300 Processor Upgrade?

Feb 21, 2009

I'm using a Pentium M (730) 1.6 GHz processor. For the moment instead of buying a new laptop I'm interested in upgrading the processor.

The Bios shows that it can detect and appears to be able to use a dual core processor but none of the 9300's were ever sold that way.

The motherboard uses a m-FCPGA socket. Does anyone know or has tried to use a dual core processor in this motherboard? I'm even curious as a project but,

if someone has info/data on this I would truly appreciate the info. I have a 250 GHz harddrive and 2GHz on the RAM. Looking to speed this thing up a bit before finally putting her out to pasture.

Dell :: Inspiron 9300 HDD Upgrade

May 9, 2009

I have an Inspiron 9300 with an 80GB IDE hdd. I have recently succesfully upgraded the RAM to 2gb. Im now looking to upgrade the HDD and would like to go for the Western Digital WD3200BEVE (320GB). I know there is something about the need to partition it as XP only sees up to 130GB but I also read somewhere that if you download HD Tune and if the 48 bit address box is checked then it will see the whole drive. As Im a bit of a newbie to all this, does that mean I can just pop the 320gb drive in and my system will see it straight away or will I have to partition it with no partition larger than 130GB?
Also does anyone know if the WD3200BEVE is the best one to go for in terms of performance and storage size?

Dell :: Inspiron 9300 RAM Upgrade

Jul 25, 2007

Been looking at newegg lately and RAM is crraaazy cheap. I've been meaning to upgrade my RAM to 2 GB.

Currently I have a:

Inspiron 9300
1.83 ghz processor
1 GB RAM
256 mb GO geforce graphics card
Windows XP

I play games quite frequently so the RAM would be great. However, I've never upgraded my memory or computer as a matter of fact before.

My question is, how much RAM will my computer support. Should I opt to go for a 2 GB (2x1 GB), 4 GB (2x2GB), or 2 GB of 1 stick of RAM and keep 512 mb of my Dell RAM to try and get 2.5 gb of RAM? Is the last option feasible?

Dell :: Hard Drive Upgrade For An Inspiron 9300?

Aug 27, 2009

I've got an Inspiron 9300 that I bought in 2004. Now, I know that it's a bit outdated (it's processor is an Intel Pentium M 1.86) with a 100gb hard drive.

My question is is it possible to get a bigger compatible hard drive in the computer's slot? I'm almost full with music (that I've copied from my CDs) and family photos, etc. so it would be handy to have more space to work with.

It's still in good shape. The warrantee just ran out a year ago and I've got a bunch of newer expensive parts (screen, heat sinks, heat fans, etc.) so it's likely worth my while if such a hard drive is available.

My computer might last another three or four years without having to need serious costly repairs making it best to simply buy a newer one. (I'm keeping all of my necessary files on a 320 gb USB drive in case that happens.)

Dell :: Inspiron 1545 Processor Upgrade

Nov 8, 2009

I just bought a inspiron 1545 and after buying it I have a little bit of buyers remorse concerning the processor. I opted for the Intel Core 2 Duo T6500 at 2.1Ghz, but now I think I would have been better off with a faster processor as I am planning on keeping this laptop for as long as possible.

The two processors within my budget that I am looking to upgrade to are:
P8700 (2.53Ghz) (currently an option for the inspiron 1545 configuration)
or
P8800 (2.66Ghz)

My question is whether or not the inspiron 1545 can handle these processors? I know that on the spec page for the inspiron 1545 it says that it can handle any core 2 duo. I just want to make sure that is true. I tried asking a dell tech person but he was unsure/didn't really know anything.

In addition, would I be able to upgrade to a P9700 if I wanted to?

Dell :: Processor Upgrade

Mar 3, 2009

if it is possible to upgrade my Studio 1535's processor (Intel C2D T5750, 2.0GHz). I cheaped out on most of the parts when I first bought this thing, as I was somewhat strapped for cash, so I went with the bare-minimum processor, but now I think I can do better.

So, is it possible to replace my processor? If so, what are some compatible models? I'm looking for at least 2.4GHz, for the record.

Dell :: Looking To Upgrade My Processor

Mar 14, 2010

I was looking through some of my spare parts the other day and I came across a Pentium M 2.13GHz processor I removed from an old laptop I had a while back. The only problem is it was just thrown in a drawer with some other laptop parts, where its sat for about a year.

I was just wondering if anything bad could come from using it in my laptop since it hasn't been stored in ideal conditions. I looked at it pretty closely and there don't appear to be any bent pins or anything.

Dell :: XPS M1330 Processor Upgrade

Mar 2, 2010

i'm new to these forums and know VERY LITTLE about computers. i bought my laptop 2 years ago and cheaped out on the processor to save some cash.

i want to upgrade the processor now because it is a little slow for my liking plus i want to be able to play some newer video games like BC2 and MW2.

my current processor is an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T7100 @ 1.80GHz

I dont know too much about computers like I said but im pretty sure I want one that can run at at least 2.4GHz and read that the T8300 ran at 2.4GHz in a thread but that thread was about 3 years old XD.

edit: found an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T8600 @ 2.4GHz for $210. is that a good deal?

Dell :: M1530 Processor Upgrade

May 3, 2010

I've been out of the hardware game for quite some time. Cisco for 2 years will make you forget stuff.

I have a Dell XPS M1530, T9300 processor. I am wondering if I can upgrade to the T9900. Also, my current processor is 32 bit. Can I get a T9900 in 64 bit, and will it work with my mobo? OS doesn't matter, can redo it. I am trying to beef it up for better gaming. 3gb ram is killing me...

Another question. Just wondering if it is possible to get an i5 or i7 instead? Will the i7 physically fit into the slot? 45nm

Yet another question. The laptop runs hot already. With a processor upgrade, surely it will run hotter.

Dell :: How To Switch Your Inspiron 9300 WUXGA LCD Into An Inspiron 9400P

Aug 1, 2007

Guide to Switching your Inspiron 9300/M170 WUXGA into the Inspiron 9400/M1710:

You can't simply replace the display screens. The instructions below must be followed for your screen to work properly.

Required Materials:
- Small Phillips (I used #0 Phillips)
- Either 2 monitors (9400 and 9300) or part #YPNL-N017B (Google the # to buy it).

Step 1: Remove the display assembly. Dell has an excellent guide for this on their website.
[url] Click on Display)

Step 2: Remove the LCD Bezel (the gray trim around the screen). This requires removing the screws under the circular pads. I used a small flathead to pry open the bezel.

Step 3: Remove the 8 screws around the sides of the LCD. This will make it so your screen can be taken out. Do not worry about any screws on the top, they are for other things.

Step 4: At the bottom of the screen, there is a green circuit board. On the left side, you will see a screw holding the wire down. Remove this.

Step 5: Remove the LCD screen from the case.

Step 6: Look at the bottom circuit board again. This is the board we need to swap! Disconnect the 2 connections on the board. There should be on on the bottom and one on the side that is white.

Step 7: There will be 3 silver screws holding the circuit to the screen. Remove these screws. Note: This requires a very small phillips. I used a #0 Phillips to do the trick.

Step 8: Repeat steps 1-7 for your other monitor OR if you don't have another monitor...you will need to buy an inverter chip. The mfg # is YPNL-N017B. If you google that number, you should find a bunch of sites willing to sell it.

Step 9: Simply swap the bottom circuit boards between monitors or insert the new one that you bought.

Step 10: Follow steps 1-7 in reverse to reconnect everything back up! Before screwing everything back up. I suggest you plug it in first to test it out.

Congratulations. Your WUXGA LCD will now work properly on the Inspiron 9400. For anyone wondering, you MUST replace the bottom circuit board or the brightness controls will not work. You brightness will be stuck at the lowest setting and nearly impossible to see.

Acer :: Aspire 5920 Processor Upgrade

Nov 9, 2008

I've been having trouble deciding on whether I should upgrade my 5920's processor/ram and if it was worth it.

I play games moderately and I just need it to perform to my standards, so far in testing this laptop it doesn't hold up too well in FPS in the games I play (Counter-Strike: Source, Warhammer, etc).

I was wondering, if upgrading my processor from the T7300 to the P8600 or maybe even the P9500 would help at all in the performance increase.

In CSS, the computer itself gets 230 FPS on the video stress test. In the real time gameplay it holds up to it, but it's just that it isn't perfect and is sometimes skippy and I will get random chops every few minutes or so. I concluded that most of it was due to the heat and possibly due to the slower processor and amount of ram I have (I have 2GB).

If I can't get this laptop working up to par I'm going to have to invest in another one, as I plan on having a laptop that I can use for school and at home on external monitor and accessories without it being the 20 pound 17" gaming laptop.

Another thing is, will using the P series of processor lower my overall laptop heat and power consumption since they are 25W compared to the T7300's 35W?

Acer :: What Is The Fastest Processor I Can Upgrade My 6935g To

Nov 26, 2009

My acer 6935g has a T6600 2.2ghz processor at the moment which has a 800mhz fsb.

My question is this: what is the fastest processor that i can use? Can i upgrade to a 1066 fsb processor ? Or do i have to stick to the 800 fsb range of processors..?

My ram is curently 3gb of ddr3 pc3-8500 which i am upgrading to 4gb. So as i understand it, my ram will work at the faster fsb if i should be able to upgrade to the faster fsb range of cpu's, or have i got this wrong?

What would be the effect (if any) of a faster 1066 fsb cpu on the battery life, i mean would there be a noticable reduction ie 30 minutes or more...?

HP/Compaq :: Dv7-1273cl Processor Upgrade Line

Mar 7, 2009

I just purchased a dv7-1273cl from aafes, here in Afghanistan. They were recently stocked at our local Base Exchange, around the 2nd of March.

t6400 Processor (2.0Ghz, 2mb L2 Cache, 45nm die,etc.)
4gb of DDR2 at 800mhz
9600 GT video Card w/ 512Mb of Memory
500gb 5400rpm harddrive
2x Blu-Ray player
WXGA (1440x900) Screen
Bluetooth, wireless, e-sata port, HDMI port, etc, etc.
Vista Home Premium x64 SP1

Here's my questions:

What CPU's can this guy be upgraded to? It runs fine as is, (sins of a solar Empire at max settings 4x AA and not a hickup, Don't know frame rate, don't really care, as my eyes are things that matters)

I tried doing research into what processors it will accept, but I'm unclear and I haven't seen any posts.

If my Front Side Bus is 800mhz, is that restricted by the CPU itself or by some chipset on the Motherboard?

Also I've read that there some problems with the Sound Card drivers (IDT HD audio) and also that the Blu-Ray player wouldn't work on some of the same model numbers that were sold at Costco. I have not had a chance to test the blu-ray player, but my Audio driver has yet to consume 50% of the CPU usage, at anytime (knock on wood).

As you might have guessed I don't have a steady Internet connection, so I'm pretty much just cleaning out alot of the HP junk except for the stuff that has been integrated to deeply and I can just hide away, and so far it's worked pretty good. I have Adobe CS4 Master Edition installed and It runs all those programs wonderfully

Dell :: My Old Inspiron 9300

Dec 18, 2007

BEEN a While and A long time...
I currently order a Pentium M 735 1.7 Ghz 400FSB to overclock up to 2.26Ghz@533Mhz. Still waiting on shipping. Anyways, I am looking forward about upgrade my GPU Go 6800 OCed 370Mhz/700Mhz to Go 7800 (NON-GTX).

Yeah, GTX one is pricey for me.

I am wondering does the Non GTX version of Go 7800 still need 130Watts Adapter?

I did a lot of search all I could find is people talks about 7800GTX version.

In my thought I think 6800 to 7800 different is more pipelines and pixel fill rates and etc and the power needed is the same. Right?

So do I need 130 watts or I just keep 90 watts adapter which is perfect for NON-GTX Go 7800
