Go to your laptop manufacturers website and download drivers from there. These drivers are specific to a given model and this is generally the ONLY place you can get correct drivers. For example, go to HP.Com for Compaq and HP laptops. Go to the support or download area and search for your laptop.

If you can't download to the laptop due to wireless issues, you will have to get a friend to help out.

Note: Wireless drivers generally come with your wireless card. If it was an internal card (like newer notebooks) do the above. If it's a separate PCMCIA card you installed aftermarket, go to the card manufacturers website and download there.

Cant find upgrade info on cpu for this


http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?cc=uk&lc=en&product=4320950

Product information> Product specifications> HP G72-B02SA Notebook PC Product Specifications>

Intel Pentium P6100 CPU (Processor),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_microprocessors#.22Arrandale.22_.2832_nm.29

Uses the Socket G1 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_G1

"The current CPUs to use this package are the Core i7-6x0M series, the Core i5-4x0M series, the Core i5-5x0M series, the Core i3-3x0M series, and finally the Pentium P6x00 series and Celeron P4x00 series which were released on March 28, 2010. However, not all of these are available for Socket G1, as some of them are only available in a BGA package."

http://www.cpu-world.com/Sockets/Socket%20G1%20%28rPGA988A%29.html

Motherboard Chipset not stated on HP Support.

I forgot. This is HP UK Support.
People in the UK are the best, but the UK support information for anything -> BITES!

The Product Number is XF133EA.
Let's try it that way,

https://h10057.www1.hp.com/ecomcat/hpcatalog/specs/provisioner/05/XF133EA.htm

Processor subheading -
Chipset: Intel HM55 chipset

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#LGA_1156

LGA 1156 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1156

LGA 1156 processor support list,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1156#Supported_processors

I'll just go back to the G1 processor socket CPU support list.
(CPU = Processor)
Much easier(?)

There is no Front Side Bus. (FSB)
These processors use QPI.
Quick Path Interconnect,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QPI

Therefore look at the Ram Memory support, and the Voltage range, used by the Intel Pentium P6100; to compare to processors that may be supported; and add to that the processor MUST use a Socket G1 processor socket.

1) Ram Memory support
2) Voltage Range
3) Socket G1 processor socket

Pentium P6100 ->
Supports DDR3 Sdram ram memory at 1066MegaHertz.
It is the 1066MHz to keep in mind here.

Voltage range; .0775 to 1.4 Volts (DC)

Okay, now compare to list of supported Processors, on the CPU-World / Socket G1 article,

http://www.cpu-world.com/Sockets/Socket%20G1%20%28rPGA988A%29.html

"Socket G1, or rPGA988A, is a socket for first generation of Nehalem-based mobile microprocessors.

Me: ->FIRST generation of NEHALEM based MOBILE processors.

NOTE* ->
The socket was introduced in September 2009 along with the ->first three Core i7-branded mobile CPUs, and eventually it was used for Core i5, Core i3, mobile Pentium and mobile Celeron families.

Me: In order of technology, or crudely can be stated as, "which is better", the order is;

Intel Celeron
Intel Pentium
Intel Core i3
Intel Core i5
,plus the first three Intel Core i7 processors, that used the Socket G1 processor socket.


NOTE*->
The rPGA988A works with dual- and quad-core chips, built on 45nm and 32nm technologies, and operating at frequencies up to 2.8 GHz.

Me:-> Core technology based on 32NanoMeter, or 45nm.
Up To a 2.8GigaHertz frequency rate. ('Speed')

NOTE*->
The socket supports DDR3 memory with data rates up to 1333 Mhz, and Direct Media Interface. Socket G1 was superceded by socket G2."

Me: Stick with 1066MHz ram memory, and Intel processors that support it.

Moving on..........
Processors supported, going from Core i7 down.

[NOTE* Dealing with a laptop/netbook processor is different than a desktop processor.

You are looking for 'processing power', but also power saving features.
Power saving as in how much power the processor will use.
Mobile processor = Laptop/Netbook processor.
The less power it uses, the better for a Laptop/Netbook.

The battery will last longer.

Therefore it really is up to you.
Balance of processor 'power', and saving battery power ]

Core i7 - 6x0M

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i7_microprocessors#.22Arrandale.22_.2832_nm.29

Only 2 use the G1 CPU socket.
Intel Core i7- 620M, and Intel Core i7 - 640M

The rest use the BGA surface mount that has 1288 solder balls.
Explained at end of solution, about the BGA surface mount.

Notice they are Arrandale Core. Also the Arrandale Core is based on the 32nm architecture.
Notice they support DDR3 Sdram that is 1066MHz.

Notice ALSO that it is -> TWO DDR3 Sdram ram memory modules.

THAT, is what you want.
NOT an Intel Core i processor that needs THREE ram memory modules, ('Stick'), in order to operate.
Long dissertation, will include detailed info at end of solution.

You actually need to know the old technology, and compare to the newer Intel Core i technology, to fully understand.

CPU World processor support list also includes Intel Core i7, model 920XM, and Intel Core i7, model 940XM processors,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i7_microprocessors#.22Clarksfield.22_.2845_nm.29

To me this = No.
DDR3 Sdram ram memory, but 1333MHz frequency rate. ('Speed')
Also voltage range is .0650 to 1.4 Volts.
MAY work, MAY NOT.

BIOS may recognize the processor, and make changes accordingly.
Then again it may not.
BIOS upgrade? I'll pass. Too easy to scre-w up, and also miscommunicate proper procedure.

Stopping for a second;
The Core i technology will 'slap a Pentium around'
It's like comparing the 'grocery getter car' to a fuel dragster.

Core i3 and Core i5 technology has less 'processor power', than a comparable Core i7, but the Core i3, and Core i5 were also designed to use less power. Therefore (Supposedly) more battery life.

The Intel Pentium P6100 is a dual core processor. Two processor cores.

http://ark.intel.com/products/50175

But the Core i7 is essentially a quad core processor.
Four processor cores.
This is because it uses the old HT technology.

Hypertransport Technology.
Two REAL processor cores, and if it is needed Two VIRTUAL processor cores.

Intel Core i7, model 620M; for an example,

http://ark.intel.com/products/43560/Intel-Core-i7-620M-Processor-4M-Cache-2_66-GHz

2.0GHz maximum frequency rate for the Intel Pentium P6100.
2.26GHz for the Intel Core i7-620M

Nothing to write home to Mom about, as far as using 2 processor cores.
But when the 2 virtual processor cores of the i7 kick in, that's when the Pentium P6100 would get lost in the dust.

Instead of having two processor cores operating at 2.0GigaHertz, (Pentium P6100), you have FOUR processor cores operating at 2.66GHz.

Crude example?
Two men digging a ditch. Take them out, and replace with four men.
Which scenario will get the job done faster?

HOWEVER, surfing the internet? Watching a video?
Only 1 or 2 cores are going to kick in.
Playing an intensive game, or running an intensive program?
THEN all 4 cores kick in, and kick sum boot-y.

Lot of prattle I posted. Hope you can make some sense of it.


Ha! I just found this. Here is the 'definitive' CPU Support list.
It is listed in the Compaq Presario CQ72 Notebook PC and HP G72 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide. (Service Manual, really),

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02641840.pdf

Page 11:
"Intel Core i7-620M
Intel Core i5-540M
Intel Core i5-520M
Intel Core i5-430M
Intel Core i3-350M
,and Intel Core i3-330M"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i5_microprocessors#Nehalem_microarchitecture_2

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i3_microprocessors#Nehalem_microarchitecture_2

Is it possible to install windows 2003 server and windows xp on studio 15 laptops?


yes, how ever you must format them install windows 2003 server first on its own partion on the hard drive, and then install windows xp in its own hard drive.

how ever,, each OS has its own operating system, and depending on what your planning to actually do with them may determine how well thier gonan work. Example if your just gonna use them for class room exercises so your students can learn and manage a lan website on their computers then it might be ok. if you wanna host actually websites, then your gonna run into a lot of issues especially with space.

your avg dell studio specs
Processor
  • Processor Intel Pentium Dual Core T4300 / 2.1 GHz
  • Multi-Core processor technology Dual-Core
  • 64-bit processor Yes

  • Chipset type Mobile Intel PM965 Express
Memory
  • Type L2 cache
  • Cache size 3.0 MB
RAM
  • Installed Size 3.0 GB / 4.0 GB (max)
  • Technology DDR2 SDRAM - 400.0 MHz
these are all well above what you would need to run the OS.
