A local gaming forum has a member who is selling a T7700 for $260! Thats not bad at all. But My question is, will it work in my E1705? I think the fastest cpu that will work is the 2.33ghz one, right? Will the T7700 fit in the slot and simply underclock to the other speed? or will it not work at all>?
So I have a 3 year old Vostro 1500 with T5470 (1.6Ghz), and it's starting to show its age... I'm thinking of adding some extra life to it and doing a CPU upgrade to the best possible CPU. So I'm just wondering what's the fastest CPU the Vostro 1500 will still support? Is it the T9300, or something higher?
i was looking to upgrade my cpu on the laptop. I am currently running T7500 2.2GHz core 2 duo and i think its running a bit slow so i wanted to upgeade it. Am i able to add any of the T/P series Intel Core 2 Duo Processors on this laptop? ok i found out by doing some reasearch that my MB is Quanta model 30CB 79.26 Chipset PM965 Rev. C0 is any one in laptop world familiar with this? i'm going nuts over here for 2 hours trying to find out what cpu's this dumb motherboard supports. someone? any1 can help me out here? btw i tried calling HP and its just retarded. they want me to buy a new plan or some waranty crap thing so they can help me out with phone support since my warranty is expired. they won't even answer any of my question until i pay them..... i want to know if i am able to add ANY 65nm and some 45nm, and to see if this laptop will take the quad core mobile processor Q9000 with its 45nm and its Bus Speed of 1066Mhz. i would love to buy a Q9000 2.0Ghz and put it in place of the T7500. that would be some AWESOME improvement over the current cpu. and then i might be able to play some of my online racing games with NO lag
I know I am late to the party, but I finally replaced Core Duo t2400 in my m1210 with Core2 Duo t7200. Why t7200 and not t7400 or t7600? Price/Performance.
I got t7200 on ebay for about $75, and hope to sell my t2400 for...whatever. So the price for this upgrade should be minimal. Plus t7400 or t7600 would run hotter. Giving my crazy existing temps it was a concern .....
One thing I'm surprised about this unit is how often the fan is going off, even when idling or doing normal internet browsing, and music listening.
My temperature hangs around 50*C - 60*C. This temperature range is okay for my lap as I live in Canada and the temperature will dip down a bit around winter time. But the thing is, I want it to be stabled out around 55*C with music playing and all that. In other words, I don't want the fan to go off ever 10-15mins. I like my laptop quiet, and the 700m did relatively a good job in this.
I'm using RMClock + i8k. RMClock is set to the lowest possible voltage going at 6x. It came with Vista, but I removed that crap and put XP Pro.
The laptop doesn't have a discrete video card as my purpose for this laptop is not for gaming (that's reserved for consoles). I need it to run application servers for local developments.
Is the quad raid 0 512Gb on the Z the fastest setup in the laptop/mobile world?
How does it compare to the 512GB SSD setup on the new MBP or even the Alienware 15x and 17x?
I asked this on the Alienware forum; but nobody truly knows much other than that the alienware would demolish the Z and that the ssd on the Z is a dual setup like the mbp and alienware. I know its a quad setup, but is it the fastest option availble?
I was under the impression tht it was, and it would be extraordinary on such a tiny laptop.
I bought the Acer 1410 with the single core SU3500 Core 2 Solo CPU. It looks like Acer decided to release them with the SU2300 now, which is dual core at 1.2GHz (compared with 1.4GHz of SU3500).
Does anyone have any benchmarks comparing the two, and/or if they have a solid understanding how much better it would perform compared with the SU3500? I also see that the single core AS1410 with Celeron M @ 1.3GHz sells at the same price as the dual core.
upgrading my Aspire 5570 notebook more than a year ago. This time, Iím feeling lucky to share some of my experiences about how I finally upgraded my CPU from a Core Solo T1350Core 2 Duo T7200.
Again, thanks to everybody here in Notebookreview forum especially adinu, hoggie, Mack1982, TehSuigi, krazyphire and bigozone for their insights and knowledge that helps me a lot throughout the whole process. So, letís get started!
Please refer to these post before you start. It'll save you a lot of time and trouble later on. Upgraded Acer 3680 Celeron CPU to a T5300! Aspire 5315 CPU Step-by-Step Upgrade Guide
What youíll need :Your new CPU (make sure it's compatible with your system ie; socket, FSB)Latest BIOS from Acer (upgraded to 1.3505 or latest)A good thermal paste (I would recommend Tuniq TX-2 or Arctic Silver 5 as well)Basic tools (screwdrivers, forceps, kitchen paper)Body static discharger (I would definitely recommend this as a precaution)Some alcohol, ear buds, sand paper grid 600,1200 & 2000 (optional for heat sink lapping)Lastly TIME and PATIENCE (youíll be needing these a lot definitely!)When youíre ready, lets get our hands dirty.
How to disassemble your notebook? I found out a very good video tutorial on how to disassemble my Aspire notebook on YouTube. So please take your time to view it and follow step by step as shown to help you to go through the process.
Lapping your heat sink (optional) Although itís not necessary, but I would recommend this process as another way to improve heat dissipation on your newly installed CPU. Refer to this page for detailed instructions.
The simple process:Clean your heat sink from old thermal paste residues with alcohol or equivalent of it using ear buds and kitchen papers.Apply a 600-grid sandpaper to smoothen the heat sink surface which comes into contact with your CPU.Repeat the process again with a 1200-gid sand paper until youíre satisfied.Finally, finish up by applying a 2000-grid sand paper to give you an almost mirror-finished surface. Wipe clean any dirt and residues left.....................................
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...?
I want to upgrade my old laptop to something nice, and am torn between to systems.
An HDX 16 with:
2.40 Ghz dual core duo ( P8600 chip ) 6 gigs of ram
An HXD 18 with 2.0 Ghz QUAD core ( QX9000 chip ) 4 gigs of ram
both systems have the same video card ( Nvidia with 512megs of ram ) 500 gig hard drive.
What would be the faster machine for doing video ? and what would be the overall faster machine ?
I realize that not all applications will take advantage of a quad-core chip like the QX900, so this is why I"m asking. if the dual-core P8600 chip @ 2.40 Ghz in the HP HDX 16 with that 6 gigs of ram will actually be faster overall than the quad core would be, and perhaps even be faster at rendering video ?
Dell announced, a few weeks ago, a new replacement for the 57XX and 55XX Mobile Broadband MiniPCIe cards that they are installing as integrated WWAN in select notebooks.
The new Dell Wireless 5600 Mobile Broadband card is based on the Qualcomm Gobi chipset, and therefore supports all major NA carriers (CDMA and GSM/HSPA), and all global UMTS/HSPA bands.
As a result, you can theoretically use this one integrated device on AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, O2, Telus, Rogers, Fido, T-Mobile, or any other EVDO or HSPA service globally, just by activating with the provider (CDMA/EVDO) or using the providers SIM card (GSM/HSPA).
I have just purchased an XPS15. I understand that the mSata drive (a Samsung 841 512GB) supports on-chip encryption, however I'm struggling a bit to understand how to enable this. I have read some posts which seem to suggest that it's as simple as going in to the BIOS and configuring the "HDD Password", option in the security section, however this seems just a little too easy (I was expecting to have to create a public/ private keypair or something to that effect).
How to authoritatively confirm whether this is indeed the correct way to configure encryption on the disk? Or is this just a basic BIOS level password which somehow protects the disk simply by virtue of the fact that it won't allow the machine to boot unless the correct password is entered?
i have one¬† dell inspiron 910 laptop. I broke it connecting a wrong power adapter and now a need a small piece that is inside ; i think its a MOSFET transitor, and there are two of them in the motherboard (only one is break). In the surface I can read :¬† 4835d¬† X860¬†. I am searching since some days ago and i can¬īt find this piece or similar to replace.
I found a good deal on an E6400 which is perfect except that it comes with Dell Wireless 1397. I want the Intel 5100 for Linux compatibility, but I'd hate to pass up a good opportunity just because of the wireless chipset.
I have a few E6400s at work, and it looks like the whole underside needs to be unscrewed (and I won't test on them for obvious reasons)?
