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
It has a Core 2 Duo T6400 (I know,), 4GB DDR2, and a 9600m GT. The BIOS is version F.2A. I've been trying to overclock my GPU (through software only), though my efforts have been in vain. From what I can collect, the clock speeds are locked in the BIOS. I also can't install Nvidia Ntune because it crashes my laptop during installation.
I purchased an HP DV7-1273cl from Costco about a month ago. I did only, and I mean only, the windows updates and the updates listed for my model on hp.com. After those updates, I got a couple errors that automatically did a restart and boot to "No bootable device found, please insert disc and press any key" which I wasn't able to get around until I pulled out the battery. Called Costco Concierge which led to a call to HP. Long story short, this time, I ran a comprehensive hdd test which passed and HP sent me recovery discs to rule out bad recovery partition. It didn't work. i then had to send the laptop to HP service. Apparently they replaced the motherboard and scratched the living $h!t out of the top of the lid. I called Cost Con to complain about the scratches and as soon as I hung up, BSoD.
So, I buy another refurb to see if I have better luck. Just my luck. After doing a factory recovery via the discs just to be safe, the 2nd Laptop is doing the same thing, just not as frequent. I got the "No bootable device found, please insert disc and press any key" once. It BSoD'd a couple times since Friday night. One of the BSoD said something about a Kernel Stack Page Error. At this point in my journey, I set the laptop to not automatically reboot after a BSoD. Again, the only updates I've done are the Windows updates and HP.com updates which include: BIOS update, Wireless adapter, NIC update, NVidia update (via Nvidia.com), Intel Chipset update, Webcam Software, DVD Software, MediaSmart Menu Software, Bluetooth, Essential System Updates for Windows Vista SP1. Full list of updates is at link.
This laptop has a t6600 processor that does not support virtualization. I have Windows 7 pro installed and I need to run some things in XP mode for work. Can I just upgrade to a p8700 processor? Will the BIOS have to be changed?
I will start off with Sorry not sure I am in the right place, but if someone could answer or send me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it. I have a Hp HDX16-1375, I am looking at upgrading the processor once my warranty runs out, but I want to make sure I can get a processor before they disappear, I think it will take quad core, but I am not sure, I am looking for a successful processor upgrade and to what speed.
my computer has an AMD Turion mobile 64 ML-34 Processor and that the properties of the ml-34 are the same as the ml-37 (2.0ghz instead of the 1.8ghz). I installed the new ml-37 processor and well it didnt work. The screen will not come on with the new processor.
SO i put the old chip back in, but I have no idea what to do now, to get the new processor to work.
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.
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.
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?
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.
Are the components that come in a 2.26 ghz motherboard compatible with a 2.53 or 2.66 or higher ghz processor? I plan on ordering a Z590 as I fear the 690 will end up starting at a higher base price (ie like in Canada), and then upgrading it with a faster processor, more ram, etc. I just want to make sure I can do all of those things without issue.
I am looking to upgrade my Vostro 1500 from a T5270 to a T6400. Does anyone know if this processor is fully compatible with the Vostro? It does have a Socket P setting.
The T8*** and T9*** all have the Socket P. The T64** came out after the 8's and 9's. I would appreciate any help. I don't want to go extreme with it and spend an arm and leg but just get a little boost. Also I know the T6400 will run cooler and use less battery.
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?
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?
I want the upgrade the process, either with or with out the pin mod, but i dont know what processor (Like the best processor) i can use, i see in many websites that the socket 479 mPGA can be upgraded to a duo-core, but i dont know if my laptop can be upgraded to a duo-core,....I think it could, because its the 479 mPGA and there are duo-core that fit the socket and runs on 533 MHz,
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?
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...?
Hoping to upgrade my daughters 5315 from a celeron 530 to a core 2 duo. So many pages about doing this but my main question is which processors will it accept. CPUID says its a mPGA478 socket but not sure about the chipset whether 960 or 965. Already upgraded to latest bios 1.45.
