HP/Compaq :: 8710w
I bought 8710w (KE191EA) and have some questions and issues:
- CPU and HDD don't get very high, when gaming, but the GPU and mobo get up to 80C and more. I understand that to GPU this is normal, but what about the motherboard?
- while playing games (L4D, COD4 - especially L4D) my laptop constantly locks up for several seconds (still image with looping sound). This problem is not that noticeable while playing UT3, TDU and other games. I never had these problems on my old Asus S96J.
- something is wrong with the HDD, because I can't make a new partition on it. Now it has the system partition (C) and HP recovery (E). When I try to make a partition using PartitionMagic8, I get error 1517 after reboot. CHKDSK should fix this, but it doesn't. Gparted also can't do it, because it shows ! icon besides C: and I can't resize the disk. The reason I want to do this is that I would like to have XP32bit and Vista64bit dual boot (laptop came with XP preinstalled).
HP/Compaq :: 8710w OK With 800Mhz Memory
I know the standard for this model is the 667Mhz DDR2, but I was curious if anyone had luck with 800Mhz memory on this model? I would like to upgrade the memory, but in case I cannot find a good deal on the 667 stuff, wondering if the 800 would work (albeit likely at the slower speed).
Also, any one get a quad-core processor working on this model? I know the T9500 is an awesome processor. I'm just curious.
HP/Compaq :: New 8710W- It Won't Boot Off The Optical Drive
The HP Compaq 8710W I picked up off TigerDirect when it was $750 last week arrived today...but I've run into a couple things that don't make me all that happy.
1) extremely long post. It stays at the BIOS splash page for several seconds more than I think that it should.
2) It won't boot off the optical drive unless I physically tell it to. If I have it set to just go through the boot sequence, it won't boot off the CD.
3) As a part of 2: I've replaced the DVDDL it came with with a BluRay reader/DVDDL. Both drives exhibited the issue.
4) Although this doesn't seem to be an actual problem, it keeps showing up as muted. If I click play in Winamp, it'll start playing. I don't know if it's Win7 related or not.
5) I can't seem to find a way to turn AMT off. I'm not using it in my Thinkpad, and won't be using it here.
HP/Compaq :: CPU Upgrade
I have hp8510p (intel gm965 chipset) with intel T9300 cpu. Can this be upgraded (at home)? Is this even possible to change notebook CPU?
If yes - what specs must be same old vs new? Socket is "P-478" so this has to be same, should the FSB speed be the same also?
One more question - I've got pc2-5300 333mhz ddr2 memory. can I put there something faster?
edit> is upgradit of the GPU possible? can I change the pci-express video card? I've got radeon 2600hd, could this be changed?
I'm just looking to the future because I want more processing power but I don't want to buy whole new notebook...
HP/Compaq :: Upgrade CPU, RAM, HD For My DV9305tx
I was wondering what is the best CPU that I am able to upgrade to with my HP DV9305tx, T7200? And also what RAM is recommended? As I've still only got the stock 2GB.. Same goes with the hard drives. I'm guessing that's about all that I can upgrade?
Even though this laptop has suffered from heat issues, it's been a great work companion for the last few years, and is perfect for my design work, so I really don't want to upgrade to a new laptop, but I DO need a little more speed if it's possible.
HP/Compaq :: DV7-2070ED Cpu Upgrade
I recently bought a DV7-2070ED with a T4200 cpu on board. Is it possible to replace it with a P8400 cpu?
I already replaced the T4200 with the P8400 (came from a broken down HP6730B notebook) but the thing won't start then. The P8400 is okay and working, so that should not be the problem.
Could it be the bios? I already found out that my DV7 is (almost) similar to the DV7t-series and they support cpu's like the P8600. Also the DV7t seems to use the same bios.

HP/Compaq :: Presario CQ61-305SA CPU Upgrade
just wondering about doing a CPU upgrade on the above laptop, the current CPU is an AMD Sempron M100. I'm not to up on my AMD cpu's so not sure what the best upgrade would be. Also, what does the bios support, as there are many CPU's that will fit the S1 socket, but I guess not all will be supported in the bios, so does anyone have any knowledge on this.

HP/Compaq :: Either The BIOS Goes, Or The Laptop Goes Whitelist BIOS For An 8710W
I've run into an issue that has stricken every single laptop, regardless of OS, that I've ran that has an intel 4965N WiFi card. Dell Latitudes, Inspirons, Acers, HPs, Lenovos, Toshibas, Gateway, Sony, XP, Vista, Server 2008, Windows 7, 32 bit, 64 bit.
Transfers of large files to my NAS, such as DVD ISOs, system images, or VMware images, will result in a failed transfer 100% of the time.
The issue does not occur with Broadcom or Atheros cards, or intel cards such as the the 2915ABG, 2200BG, 5100N, 5300N, 5350N. Just the 4965N.
I have an intel 5100N card I bought for a friend to use in a laptop, but he opted to use a Broadcom card that was supported in OSX. I'd like to use it in the HP to fix this issue, but unfortunately, HP's current whitelisting of WiFi cards prevents me from doing so. find a BIOS that will let me use my 5100N?
Dell :: CPU Upgrade Not Going Well
I have a Dell D520, with the Celeron M 430 @1.73 GHz 533, I upgraded the CPU to a Core Duo T2400, 1.83Ghz 667 FSB but when i try to turn the laptop on, nothing is displayed on the screen, I hear the hardrive kick on, i see the LED power light, light up, i hear the CD drive Spin up to see if there is anything in the drive, but that is where it stops. The screen will stay black, and i can not get past this. If i put in the old CPU it will boot up no problems..
I am waiting for the other CPU a T5600. I bought 2, a T2400 and a T5600.
What should i do, and how do i get this to work?

Dell :: CPU Upgrade Studio 15
I just finished a CPU upgrade from a T6400 to a P9500, I had my doubts if the CPU would work but works beatifully (2.53ghz 6mb cache).
I picked this one because of the 25W (vs 35W) TDP, so that the fans would kick in the least possible.............
Dell :: D520 CPU Upgrade
I would like to upgrade my CPU. I have the base Celeron M 430 @ 1.73 GHz. What other CPU's would just drop right in?
I guess i have the 945GM Family.. (Can accept 4GB Ram)
Also if you have one, for sale that will fit, send me a PM.. Will post a WTB thread once i know what i wtb. lol. I am looking to upgrade to one of the available Intel Core Duo chips..
Would the T2300E @ 1.66GHz or T2400 @ 1.83GHz CPU drop right in to this current system?
If this is correct, then any T2300E @ 1.66GHz or T2400 @ 1.83GHz CPU would work, and compputer brand does not matter, all i am looking for is,
T2300E @ 1.66GHz or T2400 @ 1.83GHz CPU. Correct?
Dell :: 1720 Cpu Upgrade

Dell :: 0x00000101, Cpu Upgrade
i am having a horrible time with my xps 1530.
A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time interval.
Stop Code 0x00000101
this is the bane of my life right now. I simply do not have a useable computer! I have wiped the hdd using parted magic, and installed vista ultimate 32bit. no windows update, just the nvidia drivers from dell support website installed. I get that stop: code at random times, sometimes stright after login, or 1hr browsing the internet. No games installed or tried.
I have contacted dell, and they have been out and replaced the motherboard (so to change the nvidia 8600m gt media card) but I am still getting the same system freeze.
Im sure its not software related, as linux (ubuntu, opensuse, fedora) all seem to randomly freeze and lockup just the same as in windows except no BSOD!
So does anyone seem to know whats going on here? I feel like it is a CPU fail ? I am currently running memtest86+ 3hrs, no errors.
here are the specs
XPS M1530 CORE 2 DUO T7250 2.00GHZ
nvidia 8600m gt 256
... could i change this processor, does the replacement need to be 65nm?
Dell :: E6400 CPU Upgrade

Acer :: Ferrari Cpu Upgrade
purchased and installed a 1.6ghz tk-42 cpu in my ferrari one netbook, the bios detects it as a 1.6ghz cpu but i cannot get it to run @ 1.6ghz in windows without using 3rd party tools. tried reinstalling windows 64/32bit and it always boots @ 1.2ghz (default cpu clock). Does anyone have any idea how I can sort this out? Possible bios hack etc?
I can run without my external graphics card fine @ 1.6ghz, with it the machine crashes constantly.
Acer :: Upgrade 8920g Cpu

Intel Core 2 Duo P9500 2.53GHz Socket P 25W

Just wondering what the difference is between a "P" model and a "T" model are?
Acer :: CPU Upgrade Failure
I attempted to upgrade my ageing aspire 3053 to the quickest processor I could find, a Turion mobile X2 - TL-60 to be exact.
I prepared well for it, buying arctic silver 5, IPA and whatnot. I even paid some dodgy ebayer Ģ2.50 for the service and repair guide for it.
However, it has not gone very well, after installing said new processor, the only thing the machine would do was turn on, pass POST and then the fan would spin at 3 bazillion RPM and then switch off. Cue 7 attempts of applying the thermal compound and much swearing, still to no avail.
After leaving it on the coffee table in bits for the past 3 weeks, I finally decided to call it a draw and re-install the old Sempron. Oh dear. Didnt quite go as expected either....
My machine now is only half the laptop it once was pre-faffing. I can no longer complete the XP setup, as, after all the files are copied across, and you enter the stage where you set up the internet connection, quite a few odd things happen. The cursor jumps around the screen like the machine is struggling and you have to hold down the keys for at least 30 seconds each to get them to register.
I have taken it to bits again to see if I could faff with it some more, and have noticed a couple of things:
1) The mainboard appears to be now warped.
2) There is a slight burr on the heatsink where the cpu core will sit - looks like a manufacturing defect.
Dell :: Upgrade E6500 CPU To QX9300?
I have an E6500 with a T9400 CPU (Core 2 Duo, 2.53 GHz, 1066MHz FSB).
I would like to upgrade it to a CPU that is either a quad core or dual core with hyper-threading. The only CPU I can see that is even a possibility is the QX9300 (Core 2 Extreme, 2.53 GHz, 1066MHz FSB)..
The CPU I have is listed by Intel as supporting BGA479 and PGA478 sockets. But, I don't know which my motherboard has...
The QX9300 is only listed to support PGA478 sockets.
Reading on here, it seems like even if I am able to upgrade, I might be opening myself up to heat problems... ..
OTOH, I also read that the the E6500 is identical to the M4400 except for the lid. And the M4400 is available with the QX9300 CPU...
So, can anybody tell me if I can replace my CPU with the QX9300? If so, would it require anything more than just buying the new CPU?..
Dell :: Xps M1640 (cpu Upgrade)
I was wondering if my cpu could be upgraded to the latest chip in the P class (P9700). My laptop came with, (Intel Core 2 Duo CPU P7350) at 2.0ghz. I can't even run the game Crysis and this machine is supposed to be meant for gaming.
Dell :: XPS M1530 CPU Upgrade
Can I upgrade my Dell XPS M1530 with a T5800 Core 2 Duo CPU to a Quad Core CPU like the Q8100 (not now but maybe in the next 6 months)..
I think the socket is the same and it's still Penryn but the FSB is different so I'm not sure..
Dell :: Upgrade Cpu And Video In 9400

Dell :: Inspiron 1318 Upgrade [CPU]
I got a Dell Inspiron 1318 from Walmart when it first got on the market. I like the machine, a decent keyboard, upgraded the memory and it is all good - except for the T2390 CPU.
I read the service manual and saw you can upgrade the CPU. What is the maximum CPU you can use to replace the T2390 for this laptop?
If anyone has any used resources or a used CPU - let me know I am interested in buying.
Dell :: Inspiron 2500 Cpu Upgrade
I wish to upgrade my laptop dell inspiron 2500 cpu processor which at the moment my laptop runs on a just under 1 ghz processor [pentium three] chip.does anyone know my limits on what i can upgrade to as in a faster modern processor chipset compatible with my motherboard and without major soldering or mother board changes.
Dell :: M6400 Diy Cpu Upgrade
I orderd a m6400 from dell with a qx9300 and the delivery has been delayed until next year some point which they cant even confirm, it would have been delivered to the UK where I am now but I will leave the UK before dell can deliver.
The only solution I have come to is that there is a site in germany called planet-notebook selling the base systems. Completly unloaded.
So my question is will I be able to buy a qx9300 chip and fit it onto the laptop, does anyone have any idea how difficult this will be. Will I for example need any tools or equipment except for a screw driver? Do I need some kind of thermal paste I heard about or is that just an option as Id have no idea how to apply it.
Dell :: Xps 1730 Cpu Upgrade
just wondering if a CPU Intel core 2 extreme x9000 2.8ghz ,socket 478, 6mb L2, FSB 800 could fit into my 1730 (see below)
I could call a technician to install it... my question is what else should I change?
I trust you so before spending one cent I want to be sure this is feasable!
Dell :: CPU Upgrade On Vostro A860

I have upgraded to 4 gb of ram but it is not much better than the 1 gb it came with. I would like to know what is the best CPU I can Upgrade to on my machine.
Dell :: CPU Upgrade For A XPS M1730
So, this is the second time I've been unable to answer a technical question on my own, this makes me sad... But I'll live.
The problem is the following.
I've begun playing the Battlefield Bad Company 2 beta quite a bit and I've recently found that my lacking FPS is caused by my somewhat outdated CPU, which I really should have concluded earlier,
but spilled milk and all that. So I've been looking into upgrading and quite honestly, I have no idea what my options even are. I've been unable to find any compatibility related sites that could even as much as inform me what current CPUs are suited for my machine, so here I am, asking people far wiser, more clever, and most likely better looking than my self
Dell :: Studio 1537 CPU Upgrade
I have tried to find info on suitable processor upgrade for the 1537 that I am picking up tomorrow. It comes with the T3400 cpu which I am not a big fan of. I currently have a D630 with a T7500,
and was thinking of putting the T7500 into the 1537. However, after some researching, realized that they come from different platforms with diff FSB. Would that be a big problem? is this upgrade worth it?
If not the T7500, What other processor would you recommand? I have seen people using processors with 800mhz FSB, but not sure whats a good processor to upgrade to...
Dell :: XPS Studio 16 CPU Upgrade?

I'm not asking for the best one that Dell can offer on their site, because I'm pretty sure it's not the best one, but really the best one that can fit and be compatible with the Studio 16 without any issues?

Acer :: Aspire 6930 Cpu Upgrade
i am considering an upgrade of my cpu but am not sure wich cpu to buy. Either T9600 or P9600. I know P9600 works cooler and consumes less power, but i dont actualy know how much lower itīs performance is. (got my information here and some on intelīs website)
My current config is:
Intel Core2Duo P7350 2.0ghz
Geforce 9600M GS 512mb DDR2
3gigs ddr2 ram.
Iīd like to increase the gaming performance mostly, so is the cpu upgrade worth it considering the cost?
