i have the 5315-2698. ive already upgraded my memory to 3gb and my bios is v1.43. whats the best cpu to upgrade to for heat, speed, and battery lif? is the t8300 probably my best choice or would it be worth going for a t9500? ive already upgraded my system to windows 7. does it have the overheating problem with the t9500 like vista did?
We only have one T9500 tester for the last 2 years, doubt we'll find one for W7 anytime soon. But considering the fact W7 is basically an improved Vista I'd expect the same issues to appear. For the best CPU well..check the last few pages of this thread, I'm tired of repeating the same thing over and over again.
ok i found the page. i read the first 23 then skipped to 118 lol. so i will look around the net for the cheapest t8300 it should boost the performance and hoprfully keep it cooler than the celeron 560 2.13 thats in it now
I have upgraded my actual configuration: Celeron 550, 500 GB Toshiba HDD, 2 GB RAM, Intel 4965AGN, Bios v1.42 to a Penryn Intel C2D T8100. Already installed Windows 7 Ultimate RTM.
I have a problem, my system show continuous error messages like "The display driver has stopped working and have been recovered" not exactly that but is like, and at the same time the display gone and shows black image returning after the crash and recover, also some glitches at text and other things...
Also, sometimes reboot with a BSOD error 0X000000A5, about a "Your BIOS is not ACPI compliant" Maybe i need to update to v1.43? But i have not a very old version: v1.42... The v1.45 was a headache that "destroy" my screen
Trying to reinstall Windows 7 and the same, installing Windows Vista too... But i have installed Windows XP SP3 and all is running fine! Also with CPUZ i have seen that SpeedSteep is Working fine with 1.2-2.1 GHz interval. And running a Stress Test with Everest Ultimate and within 1 hour none error and no reboots...
I don't know why with Windows XP work well, but not Vista or 7

Sounds like you're using a Beta instead of RTM. If I recall Vista's Betas had ACPI problem like that..
The video driver problem you have might be solved by installing the newest drivers directly from Intel.
I installed windows 7 worked fine didn't even need to load any drivers , except had major issuses with networked printer but i think that may have been drivers on networked computer where the printer was connected were 32 bit and windows 7 version i installed was 64 bit , went to xp instead just cause I don't like the windows 7 interface
windows 7 runs about the same speed as xp , connects to the net really fast on wireless and generally is very good , I just didn't like the pinining thing and tabbed programs and the aero shake thing is just a plain silly idea
oh and another really annoying thing is they have moved things around just for the sake of moving them ie things in the control panel and other settings etc that are easy to find in xp it's like they are trying to hide them in windows 7
no classic start menu either although I believe you can get a freeware aftermarket prog to do this
on another note upgraded the cpu this afternoon got a t5550 cheap 5 mins to install and bob's your uncle running faster again
does anyone know if the aspire 5573 is as easy to upgrade? or can point me to some threads as i can't find any
thanks in advance
