Unless you can easily get to your proccessor (where the fan in your laptop is, by removing some screws, a hinge cover or the keyboard) then yes it will be a big deal.
If you can get to it by just removing the things listed above, shouldn't be too hard. BE SURE you buy something that is compatible with your laptop motherboard, has the same front side bus speed, and the same socket as your original cpu though. Then you should be good to go.

    Hola, la capacidad total de este modelo M2352 de eMachines y similares es de 1024Mb, NO de 1280Mb, esto es, tiene dos placas de 256Mb originalmente, una interna y una externa, juntas suman 512Mb, eMachines dice que acepta 1GB y en la web dicen que acepta 1GB, nadie define la capacidad completa, todos venden RAM de 512 y de 1GB, solo cambiando la RAM externa, si se cambia la externa por una de 512Mb mas la interna serán 768Mb totales sin problemas de reconocimiento, se puede cambiar la interna y la externa por un par de RAM de 512Mb sumando 1024Mb o 1GB como dicen sin problemas de reconocimiento, es la mejor alternativa que he deducido, por la falta de información y confusión que genera esa misma informacion. si te pasas de 1024Mb totales, siempre va haber problemas de reconocimiento sin importar la marca o capacidad de la RAM a instalar, NO acepta winVista ni Win7, sólo trabaja con winXPHome Edition, el cable y conector de corriente electrica que alimentan a la M2352 son de mala calidad, con el uso diario y muchas horas se sobre calientan hasta el punto de comenzar a derretirse, todas las partes plásticas se dañan y empieza a hacer corto, humea y sacan chispas, por estar en contacto el polo positivo y negativo, esto puede dañar la M2352, la solución es abrir y tener acceso a la placa madre, quitar el material dañado y soldar directamente los cables de alimentación y que toleren un voltaje mas alto de 18volts, si es menor se quema el cable y nuevamente hace corto, es una solución radical, antiestética pero funciona muy bien.

I have ASUS x5dc. I have installed windows 7 64 bit. Can i change OS?. My laptop is very slow.


Windows 7 is a very good operating system. But, the laptop may have a slow processor. Try to see if you can upgrade the processor to a core 2 duo or above. Also, try to upgrade or increase the memory to 2 gigabytes or above to 4 gigabytes if possible. The computer is guaranteed to speed up with memory and processor upgrades. Also, try to upgrade the hard disk drive to a SSD or Solid State Drive and you will see awesome speed.

Maximize my laptops memory and speed


See if you can "Upgrade" the processor would be one way... Maybe upgrade to a 64 bit OS. The rest you have already done. a large, fast/big cache, high speed Hard Drive.

Toshiba L305-S5944 T 3400 Want to upgrade ???processor the bus speed is F/S bus speed is 667 can I break this Limit?? with a processor??? are is that it fast as it will go??? what does efect the board...


Hi,

With laptops you are severely limited with what you can do regarding the processor. It's highly unlikely that you will break the 667 front side bus barrier at all. A laptop BIOS just doesn't support CPU overclocking and neither does a laptop motherboard.
The only thing you could do is upgrade the processor for a better one like a C2D T8100 for example but the bus speed on that is only 800 MHz so there are limitations.

A desktop motherboard is a different kettle of fish as some motherboards are designed with CPU overclocking in mind and are cheaper to purchase.

If you wanting to upgrade the processor for gaming purposes then i wouldn't bother as the GPU (graphics processing unit) in the L305 is not that good at all.

I hope i have answered your questions for you.


Regards.

Upgrade cpu


you can at most upgrade memory, rarely video, but I never seen ugrading a CPU on a laptop, most of the time the CPU is soldered and the MB does not support upgrade.

Which processor can I upgrade to?


Honestly, it is normally not worth it to upgrade the cpu on a laptop. Laptops are build to deal with a certain amount of heat and adding a faster cpu can cause the current cpu cooling fans to not get the job done anymore. You will seem instability in your system and could possibly damage it due to over heating.

With that said you would only be able to upgrade to a very slightly higher speed cpu and your money would be better spent else where. Some good ways to speed up a laptop are max out your memory or install a faster hard drive. For example if your current drive is a stock 5400rpm unit a 7200rpm drive would give you a nice boost. You could also look into a solid state option.

Both these upgrades will give your laptop a better boost without the hassle and risk of a cpu upgrade.

What is your question? No, these components are not integrated, but everything is attached. If this person cannot find this out for you, do not trust him to upgrade it.

My E-machines laptop's internet connection is slow via Wi-Fi. My e-machines laptop does not connect to the internet at full speed when on the Wi-Fi network however on Ethernet it will connect at its full speed. Now I know Wi-Fi does tend to be slower than direct cable connection however I do have other laptops in the house and they all produce the following results on broadband speed tests on the internet: E-Machines laptop: 4.7 Mbps (seems to cap out at this speed) Other laptop(s): 5.7 Mbps This only happens in my home network because if I take my E-machines elsewhere to other networks it can reach higher speeds. So that rules out that something is wrong with my Wi-Fi adapter built into it. I currently have At&t U-Verse service with a 6 Mbps internet service with a 2Wire Router/Modem Gateway. I had a technician from At&t come out and he checked the router and said it was fine nothing wrong with it. He checked the internet line and indeed I am receiving the full internet speed. His very own laptop connected to the Wi-Fi and received 5.7 Mbps just fine. The interesting thing is that previously when I had At&t FastAccess Dsl with the 6.0 Mbps service as well, I would receive via Wi-Fi on this very laptop 5.2 Mbps however, in that case that is what every other device would receive as well because the internet speed coming into the home was about 5.6 Mbps max because of the Dsl tech. So all in all, what could be going on with my computer that is causing it to max out a full Megabit lower than all the other devices connecting to the same network??? I am running Windows XP with all the updates, no issues with the computer such as Viruses or AdWare either. P.S. I've used both Speedtest.net and Speakeasy broadband tests on all the laptops tested (even the iPhone and iPod Touch).
