M3920 motherboard manual

Does anyone have a manual for the Acer M3920 motherboard. I would like to see if it is possible to upgrade the Intel i5 process to an Intel i7 and how to do it. I would also like to make use of the unused SATA header plug on the motherboard. Additionally, I notice that motherboard says S/PDIF socket but I cannot find any information on this or the part to use with it. Thanks.

SOURCE: Regarding the Acer Aspire 5810tz what is the most

I did some digging on trusted sites on the Internet and it looks like a 1.3GHZ is the highest they go. They try a 1.5GHZ and they said,"The notebook is not powerfull enough to handle it."

Upgrade proccessor

Dear Justin,

The Latitude E5410 service manual shows that the following processors can be used: Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 series, as well as Intel Celeron and it is also shown in the manual that the processor can be removed (it is not soldered directly to the motherboard) . And a review of this laptop by "Notebook Review" indicates that "The Latitude E5410 offers a wide range of processor options, spanning from the Core i3 370M to the Core i7 620M."

Although I do not know which processor you presently have in your laptop, I would say that it can be upgradeable from a Core i3, or Core i5 to a Core i7 620M processor.

Hope this helps!

Laptop shuts down after exactly 30 minutes

the first thins is go to the system restore in control panel. And restore to somedate the you know that the laptop was working good.
If the problem persist the motherboard, the capacitors around can be faulty, replace.

However you can install or use the software diagnostic from your computer supplier for hardware, and get it for free.

God bless you

Can I upgrade my processor to i5 for my acer 4738z pentium dual core laptop

In general it is possible to upgrade the processor of a laptop, the socket has to be the same. A faster processor may or may not produce more heat than your current one, the heat output is mainly distinguished by the watts the cpu uses.

It is though not very practical to change the CPU. Same socket means that you are bound to processors of the same era, you cannot get a state of the art architecture processor (like i3, i5, i7) with the same socket your P6200 has.

Next point is that it is not that easy to change the processor inside of a laptop, the parts are very tightly screwed into the casing making it hard to do anything in there. additionally you are likely to destroy something or unintentionally wont be able to fit all the pieces in place afterwards.

Looking at the list of pentium processors at wikipedia. It says the P6200 uses a Socket G1, as you can see in that list there are only four CPUs using this socket, and only one that would count as better as yours. So clearly: No, not worth it.

Actually there are some i7's out using the same socket and drawing only 35W, but I wont guarantee that it actually would work, and I doubt that the laptops hardware is made to support this CPU.

It is possible, but I would not recommend it.

Installing new RAM on Acer Aspire M5-581TG

Installing ram is an easy process as long as the manufacturers make it easy with easy access panels, but Acer are not known for making things easy, you may find a video tutorial on memory upgrade for your model or you could try contacting tech support who may be able to advise you further.

I want to upgrade my core2duo processor to i5 or i7, is it compatible to my motherboard a6252d

Hi rlcaralde,

Your motherboard will not support intel i5 or i7 processor .
In this motherboard socket 775 is used. It only support intel Pentium 4, Core2due etc..

So, if you want to add i5 or i7 processor you need to by new motherboard.
