Upgrading laptop CPU

I'm lookng to upgrde the CPU on my Toshiba Equium M50-192 (I believe the motherboard is called PSM59E) from a Celeron M 370 to a Pentium M 770 or suchlike. However, the Pentium has a FSB of 533MHz while that of the Celeron is 400MHz. Is this going to create a problem?
Thanks in advance,
Robert

    Ok thanks. I'll have to find myself a faster CPU using the same FSB speed then.

Yes. Your motherboard only supports cpu's with a FSB of 400mhz. If you want to upgrade you would need a compatible cpu running 400mhz FSB. Hope this helps.

Hello I was wondering what is the best cpu for this Laptop. All i have is a P4600 celeron, I cant find information about the motherboard from samsung. I presume the motherboard is a BA92-07852A.


I have chatted to a guy Dinoop P from Samsung support.
He could only confirm that max mem was 8GB. He said CPI couldn't be upgraded, but referred me to buy the Repair Manual from their outlet, which is also known ad J&J

CPU world says "
Q: Can I upgrade my Celeron P4600 microprocessor? A: Probably yes. Processor compatibility is determined by your motherboard. Please check CPU-Upgrade.com resource for CPU support list for your board."
on
Intel Celeron P4600 Mobile processor CP80617005307AB
and at the bottom of that page lists CPUs which physically fit into the motherboard, and are electrically compatible with the CPU socket. This does not mean they are compatible with the m/b (though it likely that some are). You might find a post in a forum somewhere )like the Samsung forum) describing a successfully upgraded CPU

I am having celeron processor with 256 RAM and 40GB HDD Can i install Windows 7 or Vista over this processor


Well, Vista and Windows 7 require at least 1GB of system RAM to run, If I were you I'd think about upgrading with more memory. Otherwise you will experience a very slow PC, the RAM problem will then slow down your CPU and you'll end up with a big mess.

Upgrading power supply


No, it wont hurt your processor. Actually it will probably be better for your processor. The more power you have, the better off you are.

Intel Celeron Upgrade


I know how you feel, you want to improve your situation but not spend a lot of money, and squeeze some more out of what you already bought. You have a latop that works, no need to get rid of it. The problem is that CPUs on laptops are really not made to upgrade. The overwhelming amount of data out there tell us that it's actually just easier and sensible to buy a new one. I know that's not what you want to hear, but- 1) celeron chips are really not designed for gaming, although that doesnt mean you can play simple games on them 2) if your chip is a celeron, it means your laptop was not a high-end one that had the pentium chip plus all the other higher-end (faster) components that support it. That means that even if you bump up your celeron to one a bit faster, it will still have all the slow components around it. 3) the motherboard limits what you can do-- it will not let you upgrade to the fastest celeron out there, but will allow you to upgrade withing a narrow range of celerons. This is because as chips get faster, the companies change the way they attach to the motherboard, and newer chips dont attach to older montherboards. 4) the main determinant of gaming is your graphics card, then RAM, and these wont be affected by upgrading your CPU. 5) even if you were to replace your celeron, you'd have to pay a decent ammount for it, maybe 100 bucks, and I've seen new laptops sell for 399 to 499 entry level. For me, I'd rather scrape up the extra 300 bucks and just get a new laptop, which will have the new CPU (much faster than the fastest celeron), new graphics card, probably much more ram than your system can now support. Don't mean to rain on your parade! Good luck.

Upgrade the processor on a Toshiba equium l40 series from a celron M


The core2 duo chips will be a different socket to your celeron cpu so can do that unfortunately. You may be able to upgrade to a faster cpu of the same socket type but will probably need a bios update for it to run at proper speed.

Unfortunately laptops arent really designed to be upgraded at all bar extra ram/hd/dvdrw.

Hope that helps?
