    Has anyone attempted or had any success upgrading the CPU of the $348 w@L-M@rt special??

    Aspire 5135-2153 contains a celeron M 530... specs below:

    Spec# CPU Speed Processor Bus Speed Mfg Tech Cache Size Package Type
    SL9VA..1.73 GHz......530......533 MHz...65 nm.......1 MB.........Micro-FCPGA

    i've tried to replace with core 2 duo models T5300 & T5600
    specs on 5300 are exactly the same and the 5600 only differs in the 667 FSB

    Spec# CPU Speed Processor Bus Speed Mfg Tech Cache Size Package Type
    SL9WE..1.73 GHz....T5300......533 MHz...65 nm......2 MB.........Micro-FCPGA
    SL9U3...1.83 GHz....T5600......667 MHz...65 nm......2 MB.........Micro-FCPGA

    Despite having a the same cpu socket package type, my laptop's mobo socket had one pin hole right next to the PIN 1 Key pin (maybe pin#A2) (the second position on the bottom row which would be the first pin on the row due to the first pin being blocked as a keying method) well mine had 2 holes blocked or not there, i even tried modifing the socket and making a hole so the CPUs would physically fit. Even then my notebook wouldn't boot.
    the powerlight would come on for a few seconds then cut off after the bios failed to detect a cpu,, but replacing the celeron 530 the pc boots right up, infact i'm using it now.

    after doing some "more indepth research" at the intel site, I came across info that the GM965 chipset supports T7X00 series core 2 duo cpus but none of the pre t7x00 cpus were listed as being supported by the GM965 chipset.

    i guess i'll now be searching for a SL9SF T7200 Core 2 Duo, unless some one can suggest a better upgrade option.

    any ideas??

    I would take a look on ebay for a used t5250. Its a 1.5ghz socket P C2D. and should be very cheap incase it doesnt work.

    alright bigzone:D

    could you see if you have a sticker with a number on the ram slot.
    then google that number (with the letters) as this will give you your mother board model.
    then you will find out what cpu's this board supports.

    ive done loads of research in to this and have found a few sites that sell acer boards with all the details of each board.

    post back and let us know how you got on

    cheers phil ;D

    It seems using a GL960 chipset, supporting only the 533 fsb. There are laptops with the same chipset that mount the 1.46 Ghz Pentium Dual Core T2310, a dual core cpu with speedstep seeming to me a very decent upgrade. In theory are compatible (fsb 533 and socket P) also the T2330 and T2370, working at 1.60 and 1.73 Ghz. The later 2 are more or less the socket P version of the T5200 and T5300.

    Hello Bigozone,

    I am almost sure that your 5315 has socket P as my 4315.
    I had the same problem when I installed a T5200 socket M proc in it.
    I drop a T7100 socket P proc in and the system is now working great.

    well the long # on the ram slot led me nowhere,

    but silkscreened on the mb was model #

    ILC50 LA-355IP

    that # is found in google leading me to many ebay pages.

    it's so late--- it now seems early

    If you have the GL960 you should be able to use any socket P CPU FSB adjusts to CPU so if you drop 800Mhz in will adjust and change FSB.
