PII Processor Upgrade?


Does anyone the know the max cpu the tecra 8000 is capable in running? i'cant seem to find any info on the manuals to figure out if it's a mmc-1 or mmc-2 socket? it's currently running a 266 pII... Since i don't have the laptop yet i really don't know anything about the chipset or cpu socket.. if it's a mmc-2 i should be able to fit the pII 400 cpu without any problems? since the 266 and the 400 both have a 66mhz fsb?

I have an ASUS P4T-E motherboard and looking for info regarding; max. processor speed and max RAM capabilities. Can you assist????

Looks like this motherboard is capable of supporting PC800 ram and the general maximum processor speed is decided by whether the processor can fit the socket on your motherboard, as they don't make processors that are incompatible with the same socket. Thats is the whole idea of the CPU socket system.

The spec and more advanced information for you motherboard can be found here:

I am wanting to upgrade the cpu to a faster

You dont need to know your southbridge info or anything like that, you just need to know the socket type for the processor. If they make a processor for the socket type, then you can assume it is compatible.

I need more speed

I would max out my memory before i would buy another processor. if your mem is maxed out at this time, try XP smoker. its a really good optimizer geared for windows. it will make your cpu 3 times as fast as the current processing rate you are experiencing now.

CPU Upgrade

Dear naber

The TOSHIBA Satellite 1135-S125 contains the
Intel 852GM chipset soldered on your motherboard (non removable) which is capable for speeds of 400mhz system bus. Actually what this means is that it capable of running your Pentium-M P4 2.4. so I would doubt a motherboard incompatibility.

The processor runs at the speed you state (1.2 GHz) in battery-optimized mode (1.2V core) (24/2multiplier) instead of its full potential when unplugged from the AC adaptor. I believe the speed remains like that even when plugged at the cable due to dynamic switching either at the BIOS or Windows. This means that the system is slowing down deliberately the CPU until a certain % and then it kicks in full power. (24x100Mhz=2400Mhz multiplier) (For heat purposes mainly,also increases the CPU this is normal operation and you should not be worried)

Please download the utility cpu-z at the following link

and check what I am saying. It will be displaying the Ghz of the CPU realtime so you can see if when you start any benchmark if it kicks in with a higher multiplier and hence the 2400Mhz speed due to increased stress to the CPU.

Otherwise you may check your BIOS for power management options and switch them to Disable just for testing. (you should enable them back after testing in order to cut down the increased watt consumption)

Lastly if that does not help a Bios Update might be the only resolution. I have found this Motherboad BIOS update for you
ACPI Flash BIOS version 1.70 for Satellite 1130-S155

This bios seems to enable support for CPU's at steps A2 which may be your chip. Unfortunately you did not state the BIOS revision so if it the V1.30 this bios will also add support for CPU's at stepping D1 as well.

If you found this info helpfull can you please rate the solution, Thats what keeps us going!

Improving the speed of the computer

Look dear the cost of the processor is too high and more over it is related with the other components of the Laptop. So it is totaly worhtless for trying to replace the Processor of the system. however you can increase the performance of the system by adding additional or replace the present RAM in the Laptop.
