    Hi!

    I have my Acer 6930G for a quite a long time now and I would really like to upgrade it. In my laptop is Intel Centrino 2 P8400 and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650. I would like to know how you upgraded your laptop and where did you get components (processor and graphic card)?

    Just wanted to say thanks to all the help on this thread I've successfully upgraded my 6930g to a Radeon HD 4670 512mb DDR3 from a MSI. Had problems with it shutting down quickly due to over heating but all seems well since installing the drivers! Just interested in CPU upgrade now.

    Hi Troclea,

    Hoping to do similar, can I ask where you sourced the 4670 from?

    Many thanks in advance

    ebay. I got lucky and saw one on there and went for it.

    can't run the GPU full out or overheats - got around it by setting it to run in battery saving mode in catalyst control centre. I think i need a copper shim between the GPU and heat sinc to help stop over heating.

    0.9mm copper shim works perfectly! Temp now low and controlled even under heavy load!

    What did you use/where did you get copper shim?
    Cheers

    Hi, i have the same problem with the 4650, look like some part of the GC disturb for the contact direct with the copper. I tried to close the gap with thermal paste but it's not work, still over heating.
    I don't have copper shim, so maybe I will try to grind the aluminum part a little bit.
