Upgradeable question Greetings, I'm considering a Toshiba - Satellite Laptop with Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core Processor T2390 purchase. In your opinion, is this an upgradeable laptop? (I am in my 50s and I'm this close to still using VCRs and Cassette players, so be kind.) Jatika

If you are going mobile with the notebook, you may want to consider a Centrino - since they consume much less battery power. If, however, you are going to keep it plugged into the wall, any processor will do. Most modern laptops are equipped with way more horsepower than you need for just surfing the web, emailing and constructing the odd document.
Also get the newest wireless protocol - that is 802.11 N (not G this is old).

I want some information about Nvidia GeForce 9400 GT 1GB DDR 2


If you are using Dual Core the mother board you are using may have PCI Express Slot. So that you may install Graphics card. Only for particular lower end mother board doesn't have this feature. Any way tell me your motherboard make and model no. e.g., Intel DG31PR, 945GNT, DG41TY etc.,

I have compaq cq60 209TU laptop. It has intel Pentium Dual Core M


Not much. The intel GMA4500M is not a very powerful graphics format. Most new games run directX 10 and some will only work with DirectX 10 compatible cards. The intel GMA4500M can run Direct X 10...but not very well. Most laptops are not geared for gaming due to high end graphics processors use a lot of energy and can really shorten a laptop battery run time. There are laptops with high end built-in graphics by Nvidia and ATI. These laptops can be very expensive and are very large. In your situation you cannot upgrade the graphics in the laptop and are stuck with what you have. Most new games you will need to run them in low res for the frame rate to be high and may need to de-activate some of the Direct X 10 functions to speed up game play.

Cost of game hardware in india


2GB RAM should be about $100, the same for installation. Your current graphics card meets the specs you provided. An upgraded video card will be about $200 for one that will work, $300 for one that will work well.

My pentium d 925 3.0 4m/800 processor decrease its core speed


It is absolutely normal if the processors speed and multiplier fluctuates. It doesn't mean that the processor is damaged. This technology is called Intel Speedstep. When your processor is not used on 100% it reduces its speed, so the power consumption decreases. When you need more power, the processor will automatically clock itself to higher speed.

for more information check here.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SpeedStep

If you want to turn off this feature, you have to do it in your motherboards bios. You can find it in advanced ---> cpu settings ---> Intel Speedstep, you have to choose Disabled.

Thats all
