upgraded from 2GB to 3GB ram with no issues
My C700(p/n GY394AV) currently has a
"Intel Pentium Dual-Core processor T2370 - 1.73GHz (Merom, 533MHz front side bus, 1024MB Level-2 cache per core, 65 nm process technology)
Would it be possible and even worth it to replace it with a
Intel Core 2 Duo processor T5500 - 1.83GHz (Merom, 667MHz front side bus, 2MB total Level-2 cache, 65 nm process technology)?
Thanks a lot for any help. I love this place.
Anyone? I have a broken DV9000 I took apart and have "upgraded" some of my C700's components. The Intel Wireless-N Wifi card works great and has way better range even though the C700 only has 2 antenna's.
I Went from 2GB of ram to 3GB.
I even replaced the horrible optical drive which came with my C700 with the bluray drive out of the DV9000.
I have a c700 (717nr) I have installed a t7300 with no problems, added an internal webcam(waiting on the lcd ribbon for actual confirmation it is working) will advise the part number etc. upon completion, i also have 2gb(1gb x 2) mem. My last and final problem is installing a 2gb mem mod(for a total of 3gb).....WHY WILL MY BOARD NOT ACCEPT IT. I upgraded to an f.34 bios (no probs) and still no go on the ram, but as soon as i go back to 2gb total, it works. I have tried both slots and still no go. please help me.....

I need some driver info if available. I have a Compag Presario 715CA. The hard drive died, the computor didn't even recognize there was a hard drive installed. I installed a new hard drive but with a Win 2000 operating system. The problem is the S3 Twister-K. Graphic Driver that is needed for my Video does not work on Windows 2000 but only on WinXP. I have not been able to find a driver for my video that will work on win 2000. Does anyone know of one that will work? I may be strange but I like Win2000 more than XP.
Does anyone have a Disassembly guide for the C700?
The service manual is easily findable on Google...
I've got a CPU upgrade question. My C700 came with the T2310 Core Duo processor. I just tried dropping in a T8100 Core 2 Duo processor I had handy, which I figured should work because according to the specs, some C700's came with these. However, the laptop wouldn't turn on with this processor installed. I switched back to the T2310 and everything was fine. Did I miss something obvious - like needing to change jumpers or something?
Any help greatly appreciated!

I'd love to know as well. Just picked up a T6600 cheap on fleabay. The last c700 bios came out 09/25/08 and the t6600 was released in Jan '09 so I'm hoping HP did their homework but if not I'll give it a go in the wife's cq50. I'll give an update and let you know how it went in a week or so or whenever it gets here.
Just installed the T6600 and it was recognized correctly and works flawlessly using F.34 bios. Temps and battery life are both dramatically improved as expected. This scored a 5.7 in the wei while the T7500 which I had had in here, only pulled a 5.5. Guess the T6600s sse 4.1 trump the t7500s extra 2mb L2.
