Will the Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 cpu/processor work with the Dell Inspiron 1420 laptop? I have already tried it and it wouldn't work and I'm wondering if I have to do anything extra for it to work.


The 1420 uses T-series CPUs with a front side bus (FSB) of 800MHz. The P-Series CPUs use a 1033MHz FSB and are not compatible with the unit. You need to stick to the T-series to stay compatible.

MAKING YOUR COMPUTER OPERATE VERY FAST & SECURED THROUGH CPU OVERCLOCKING


NOTE: OVERCLOCKING COMPUTER CPU MAKES IT PERFORM FASTER ABOVE THE FACTORY SET LEVEL, BEFORE OVERCLOCKING, READ THE GUIDE BELOW, AND VIEW THE SOFTWARE APPROACH HERE OPEN

drbrightirem.jpgOverclocking a processor means enabling it to operate above the manufacturer's specified frequency. Many internet sites provide instructions for overclocking. Processor manufacturers and many computer experts believe the slight gain in performance (only perceivable on CPU-intensive software) isn't worth the expense or considerable risk.

  • Get whatever tools you need: screwdriver, needle-nose pliers, motherboard manual, cooling hardware, etc.
  • 2 Find out whether your motherboard can be adjusted in the BIOS setup, with jumpers or not at all.
  • 3 Find out clock-speed limitations of the motherboard.
  • 4 Run all Windows and any third-party diagnostic applications you have. Fix all system problems.
  • 5 Make a complete backup of your system, documents and applications you don't have on CD-ROM. Do not overwrite these copies.
  • 6 If you have a BIOS-adjustable motherboard, make changes according to your motherboard manual, and skip to Step 15.
  • 7 Shut down computer.
  • 8 Leave computer plugged in to surge suppressor.
  • 9 Disconnect all peripherals from computer.
  • 10 Remove cover of chassis.
  • 11 Ground yourself to computer with any professional grounding equipment you have. Otherwise, ground yourself by touching a metal part of the chassis.
  • 12 If your motherboard has adjustable jumpers, locate the jumpers that control the CPU speed.
  • 13 Use needle-nose pliers to change jumper settings. Move jumpers to positions indicated in your motherboard manual for the clock speed you want. Check the internet for recommendations.
  • 14 Install a CPU heat sink, heat-sink compound, and a specialty cooling fan, if appropriate and possible.
  • 15 Put system back together, and reboot.
  • 16 If computer does not boot, and CPU still works, try lowering the clock speed. If that doesn't work, restore the original configuration.
  • 17 Check all functions, and run a CPU-intensive program.


  • NOTE: OVERCLOCKING COMPUTER CPU MAKES IT PERFORM FASTER ABOVE THE FACTORY SET LEVEL, BEFORE OVERCLOCKING, READ THE GUIDE BELOW, AND VIEW THE SOFTWARE APPROACH HERE OPEN Tips & Warnings
    • CPUs have rated and maximum speeds. Exceeding the maximum speed is far more likely to cause problems than more conservative adjustments.

    • Overclocking an Intel processor explicitly voids its warranty. Other manufacturers have similar exclusions. Intel prevents overclocking of some CPUs by disabling higher multiplier settings.

    • Expect a shorter life for an overclocked processor, including the possibility of its immediate failure.

    • Prepare to deal with seemingly unrelated problems that can be caused by overclocking: destruction of other internal components, lost data, system and application crashes, and an inability to boot the system. Such problems can occur randomly or materialize well after you have altered your motherboard

    How do i remove the cpu from a medion md42792


    Look for a disassembly video on youtube maybe...usually removing CPUs from laptops is an involved job. Usually need to remove battery, optical drive, hard drive, RAM, wireless network card, sound button strip, keyboard and some casing to get to motherboard. Then there will be a heatsink and fan on the CPU, usually involving about 5 screws, usually numbered which you remove in highest to lowest order, and then there will usually be a screw lock on the CPU that you turn to release the CPU. To refit you need to screw back in from lowest number to highest after applying new thermal paste carefully.

    Windows 7 drivers i need for my PB.


    You need tell us what the model and maker of your laptop is. PB? Thats often short hand for PowerBook, which is Apple's old line of Pro laptops. If thats your laptop, it can't run Windows 7. PowerBook have PowerPC CPU while Windows 7 is an OS which only runs on x86 CPUs, so Windows 7 isn't programs to run on PowerPC chips. Apple's new computer use X86 chips, so the now can run Windows 7, but the PB(PowerBook) is too old to do sorry. If PB is another computer, please post which one it is.

    Is it possible to upgrade the laptop's cpu?


    Sorry it is too old to do much with it. To goto a dual processor would be a new motherboard. It would be more efficient to buy a newrt faster one with a warranty
