Philips Freevents X50 Upgrading

I wish to buy some software which requires Intel Pentium (R) 2.4 GHz or higher and my X50 is onlyIntel Pentium (R) 1.73 Ghz. Is it possible to upgrade this notebook to bring it up to spec and if so how simple is is to do.

I am not a technician but I don't mind taking the casing off and replacing parts. I've already upgraded the ram from 512 mb by putting in an extra 1gb.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Does Intel Pentium 4, 2 GHz Processor support 2GB DDR1 RAM..?


Type of RAM supported has nothing to do with the processor make & type in most cases. It is more important to verify that the motherboard supports this kind of RAM.
In general, most motherboards supporting the Intel Pentium 4 2.0 GHz processor support also DDR1 RAM.

I would like to upgrade this processor, what do Intel 2140


I would recommend upgrading to something with quad-cores and something that will fit into the LGA775 socket.

You can go with a Core i7 but that would require you to upgrade your mobo and your RAM. Costing you about 400 more dollars.

So I would recommend a Core 2 Quad Q8300 from intel.

CONFUSION WITH INTEL CORE DUO AND INTEL PENTIUM DUAL CORE!


You are worrying about nothing.

Intel Pentium Dual Core and Intel Celeron Dual Core are both Intel Core Dual processors.

The performance rate is mesured compared to a single core processor so your 2.2GHz dual core will do the same amount of work as a 4.95GHz single core.

Is it worth replacing pentium 4 1.7ghz with 3ghz one


The 3 GHz socket 478 processor will cost you about $90 shipped. Not worth upgrading for that cost in my opinion, when you can buy a whole new computer for $400 new, or a much better computer for 1/2 that used.

UPGRADING TO 2 GHZ


1. Check user documentation for supported CPUs for your system.
2. If 2.0GHz CPU is supported on your system, you don't need any additional software.
3. I would upgrade the BIOS firmware first. It might have an additional CPU support.
4. Read information from you old CPU. Exemple: 1.4GHz/256/400. 1.4GHz is a speed of your CPU. 256 is a 256k cache, and 400 is 400MHz BUS speed. In general you can boost speed to 2.0GHz or more and cache to 512k, just keep your BUS speed to 400
5. Post your system model or your motherboard model. That information would help in determining the maximum speed of the CPU for your system.

Good lick!

To upgrade from pentium 3 to P4 you have to change alot of the hardware.

You need a NEW P4 Socket mPGA 475 Motherboard.
