    Hi,

    One of the cores on my Laptop's CPU has stopped working. I disabled the second core on the CPU from Device Manager in Safe Startup mode so the laptop still works pretty well but it is noticeably slower. So I am ready to spend some money to upgrade the CPU but I don't want to get the wrong one. I have searched a few topics and I believe the best choice for my upgrade is:

    Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T8300

    But I would love someone to confirm it will work. Here is some info from CPU-Z:

    Processor 1 ID = 0
    Number of cores 2 (max 2)
    Number of threads 2 (max 2)
    Name Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T5750
    Codename Merom
    Specification Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T5750 @ 2.00GHz
    Package (platform ID) Socket P (478) (0x7)
    CPUID 6.F.D
    Extended CPUID 6.F
    Core Stepping M0
    Technology 65 nm
    Core Speed 1994.8 MHz
    Multiplier x Bus Speed 12.0 x 166.2 MHz

    Chipset
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Northbridge Intel PM965 rev. C0
    Southbridge Intel 82801HBM (ICH8-ME) rev. B1
    Graphic Interface PCI-Express
    PCI-E Link Width x16
    PCI-E Max Link Width x16
    Memory Type DDR2
    Memory Size 4 GBytes
    Channels Dual, (Symmetric)
    Memory Frequency 332.5 MHz (1:2)
    CAS# latency (CL) 5.0
    RAS# to CAS# delay (tRCD) 5
    RAS# Precharge (tRP) 5
    Cycle Time (tRAS) 15
    Host Bridge 0x2A00

    Many thanks in advance for replies.

    T9500, or T9300 whichever comes cheaper, the difference is only 100MHz. Then comes X9000, but you'll be pushing your poor cooling over its capabilities, unless you undervolt it, but then there's no point of having an Xtreme CPU, not to mention the price. You'll need thermal paste, no matter which CPU you end-up with. In the mean time you could check the new(er) machines :) Good luck!

    Firstly, I made a typo in my OP, I mistakenly put the name of my current processor instead of the CPU I was thinking of buying (corrected now)!

    Thanks for your reply but at the moment I don't have the confidence to say that any of these CPU's will work with my laptop. Are you saying they definately will? From reading around it seems the Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T8300 is the best "bang for the buck" but perhaps I have outdated info. For comparison, it seems I can get one from Amazon for around £40.

    Yes, they will work. Yes, T8300 WAS the best bang for buck, not sure how it is now, but £40 is WAY too much for it. Try eBay, and check the other CPUs (T9300 and T9500). Good luck!

    Maybe your problem is related to the Nec Tokin capacitor. Search for the solution and try the repair first.

    Good luck
