    hi

    Just dug out my old laptop - fancied tarting it up a bit.

    i have just replaced the screen - want to sort the processor out.

    seen a thread on this forum thats now closed - some guy is asking for processor advice.

    http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/e-system-1-6-cpu-upgrade.243801/

    i currently have this processor - http://ark.intel.com/Products/Spec/sl8vz

    if anyone can have a read through and help me that would be great.

    i want to go with the fastest available - which seems to be a t7600

    http://ark.intel.com/products/27257...r-T7600-4M-Cache-2_33-GHz-667-MHz-FSB?q=t7600

    my board and spec is exactly the same as the guy posting - so does anyone think i can run the t7600 ok ?

    the only problem i can see is the fsb is 553 and the t7600 would be 667mhz

    any help would be great.

    thanks

    First of all, the fastest processor for Socket M is T7600G, not T7600. It has unlocked multiplier and can go up to 3GHz if you're lucky. To determine whether any of those will work, you should check what chipset do you have. Looking at it is be the best way, software not being reliable.

    oberkorn28, as I said, software is unreliable. 940GML doesn't support 667MHz FSB CPUs and T7600/G; 943GML does. You need to disassemble the laptop and check for yourself.

    i have ordered a replacement bottom case - so when that comes I will check the board.

    that Sandra software says its a 940gml - but I will physically check.

    can I get back to you ?

    oberkorn28, it is usually located near CPU and covered by heatsink.

    hi again

    ordered a new processor - an Intel Core Duo T2350 1.86 GHz Dual-Core SL9JK (533mhz) - fitted it - not working, power light stays on, hdd light flashes and turns off - machine goes no further.
    trying to see the board spec but cant find anything indicating either 940 or 943 - the only thing is this - a stick on copper - Foxconn 40GL41041-00 Rev a 070108
    have i got a dodgy processor, as i thought that either way my board could take this processor, or am i missing something.


    thanks in advance.

    oberkorn28, put old cpu inside, download and copy cmospwd to bootable MS-DOS flash drive (may require some additional files - haven't done this in years), boot it and run cmospwd.exe -k, turn off and change to new cpu - should work. If doesn't work, then return the CPU. The number on heatsink is its part number, doesn't refer to motherboard. You shouldn't have picked Core Duo anyway, it's not fast enough for modern computing, though better than your Celeron. You need some Core 2 Duo at least.
