By now you most likly found out it's more or less a plug out and back in, release the lock on each side of the processor lift up to remove and push back down to install.

My brand new imac is shutting down while I'm working - it seems that when it gets warm it is shutting down and it needs more than 1 hour to switch on again. Is there any problem with the new imac's and...

Their was a problem of the processor. That's why they are going to shutting down because the processor are overheated. So you need to replace that processor.

Can not find any place or panelon a toshiba satellite pro xcdt

Hi, are you sure you want to do this , replacing the processor is only feasable if its a plugin one and being that this is a pentium2 266mhz processor with edo ram and a very small hard drive , you may well be cheaper ,easier and better off buying a secondhand laptop from ebay or the like .

hope this helps

Problem in overclocking my Processor.

1: You problem is your power supply, PSU. When you try to give more power to your CPU by overclocking it, it doesn't have enough wattage, or power, to get the CD drive, or your sound card to work. This is why the CD drive works again when the CPU isn't overclocked. So, in this case, to overclock your CPU, you would have to get more power to your system by getting a more powerful PSU, or one with more wattage. How much you can overclock your processor depends on a variety of different things. Your RAM, PSU, HDD, CD drive, etc. I would not go past about 3.4ghz with your processor, however, a "max overclock" is hard to determine.

2: The maximum temp for your processor is 70C, 158F. I would try to keep your temperatures under 60C to ensure your processor doesn't "die early" on you. The multiplier cannot be changed, only the FSB can be changed. You should be able to create a "profile" in bios and set it to your default so that it loads up automatically when you boot up. Make sure you find a stable configuration before you make a default profile.

Processor compatability

Processors have a matched frequency rating with the motherboard and memory. So, when replacing or upgrading the processor, the new processor will need to have the same frequency as the old one. If the processors use the same type of memory, ie... PC2100, then ther are most likely compatable, and the use of a processor that was made for or from the same make of laptop is always a good idea. Some processors are designed specifically for use in certain manufacturer's system configurations. For example; say you have a Dell Latitude C840 with a 1.8ghz processor and you want to upgrade to a 2.2ghz processor from a Dell Inpiron 8600, this will work. Both of these machines use the PC2100 memory and have a matched frequency rating of 266mhz, and the processors are made for use in Dell machines. If you would like to tell me exactly what you're wanting to do, maybe I can recomend a processor for you. Let me know.
