    I have the 5315-2153, could you please help me thank you.
    What is the thermal heat limit for the morthboard. Do I need to get bios for the T7500 if I install it. If so, can you drop a link for me to get the bios I need. What would be the right bios set for me then. would i put the bios on before or after I put the chip in?

    I have T7300, and is working on Bios v1.45.
    go to Acer support site for your country or region and look for BIOS update.
    Flash the BIOS before CPU upgrade, just to be sure...

    T7500 works fine with the stock bios.

    as far as thermal its a 35w tdp chip which is the same as a the stock one I think. Either way I don't notice any temp increases going from a dual core celeron.

    i have a Acer Aspire 5315-2142 everything OEM

    will i be able to turn this single core into a dual core with the T7300 2.0ghz Dual Core?

    also i have an 2.4ghz dual core 3 MB cache 1066 FSB the SLB3S 479m cpu
    from my cooked IMB T500 the board died but the CPU is still good, can i still use it or do i only use the 800mhz FSB chips?

    and i thought the ram limit was 2gb? but i read people having 3?

    can you go past the limit

    Please Answer all if you can, and thank you for taking the time for helping me get some much needed info

    T7300 should work, no problem. As long as the CPU is socket P it should work. BIOS update might be needed.
    P8600 probably is going to work but even if it does the FSB will downclock to 800Mhz, it's a chipset limitation. Again, BIOS update might be needed.
    The official RAM limit is 2GB however NBR members have discovered that the laptop can take 3GB in certain slot/stick combination.

    nope didnt work, would turn on but would turn right back off, so the chip wasn't downclocking i guessing.

    but i did get chance to change my thermal paste the other stuff crumbled like clay. and now i got new arctic silver 5

    but i will get a CPU of ebay that i know works.

    and if i do this, what kinda of performance improvements am i going to see? Just better Muti Tasking?

    or should i just upgrade the ram to 2gb and its nice to know the 479m socket is the same as the 478mn

    Back to my wireless card question - I was referring to the "Code 10: The device cannot start" error people have been reporting when putting HP/Lenovo-branded 5300 cards in Dell or Fujitsu machines. I'm asking if it affects Acers too.

    BTW, a modded v1.45 BIOS with the hidden "Advanced" menu (including Intel VT, SATA hotplug, etc.) enabled can be found @ http://ifile.it/vwrkob4.
