Philips does not make cpu chips. You need to research your motherboard where you will see that either Intel or AMD has the information you need.

What is the best upgrade cpu for a compaq presario sr5110nx 32 bit vista O.S... ATHLON 64 (single core) without having to go to 64 bit, and/or new drivers ?


The 400W PSU is going to limit your CPU selection to dual-core at best, although you might be able to get away with a higher-end dual-core CPU if your RAM is not ECC and not dual-channel, and you're not running anything serious in terms of a graphics or sound card or a SCSI array.

Given your current setup I'd really look for a 1.6Ghz dual-core Athlon which has a decent amount of KB in its Level 1 and Level 2 cache, but 3MB for its Level 3 cache.

Anything beyond that ballpark of a CPU upgrade is certainly well within the bounds of diminishing returns, and you should look at getting a new PSU, motherboard, and probably RAM (I'm guessing you're using DDR2 RAM currently).

Want faster processor for acer x1300 it base unit


Here are the spec on your pc if the information you gave me is correct. You can only upgrade the cpu to the socket you have. I think you would be better off adding more RAM and a better video card that isn't onboard. Processor / Chipset
  • Type AMD Athlon X2 7450 / 2.4 GHz
  • Number of Cores Dual-Core
  • 64-bit Computing Yes
  • CPU Qty 1.0
  • Max CPU Qty 1.0
  • Chipset Type NVIDIA GeForce 8200

Can you upgrade to a faster cpu than a 1.73ghz in a vgc-ls30e? If so how much can it be upgraded?


Hi, laptop chip upgrades are limited by what the bios setup of your computer will accept but I`ve had a bit of success by looking what different versions of the same model laptop are available, the manufacturers generally use the same motherboard in a variety to keep costs down so if there is a model the same as yours that is available with say a pentium 1.86 dual core then it will most likely fit yours too. Download a program called cpu-z (free on the internet) which will tell you what socket type your cpu is which is essential as there are so many now!

Hope this helps

My computer can upgrade CPU Pentium 4 to CPU Dual Core Socket 775....PLs, help me.


no, you cannot upgrade to a core 2, and, even if you could, your board would slow the chip down.

I have an IBM thinkcentre m51 that I am trying to upgrade to a dual core processor. It seems that it won't take it. Is there a setting on the bios that will allow the motherboard to support a dual core...


Most major manufactures use motherboard designed to their specs and upgrades to the processor are limited. You can use software such as Belarc Advisor, to determine what motherboard you have and then you can search the net to determine what processors are compatible with it.

Lookin to upgrade from dual core 4400 2.30ghz to higher what would be best?


I am taking it that since you had a dual core 4400+, your using a AM2 motherboard..
Bout the best you could do with that board is find another dual core, perhaps an AMD FX70 or FX62. Unfortunately AMD is not keeping up with intel , they sorta failed with the quad core.
If your smart, you'll save till you get enough to jump a couple levels and replace the ram, cpu and motherboard.

Do you know what the CPU socket is or chipset? If the CPU socket is a 478 then no dual core. If it a 775 then you might be able to use a Pentium D dual core w/ 800MHz FSB.
If you have a 945 chipset then the above will be true.
