Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
I am looking to upgrade my CPU It has a Wistron 360A motherboard and AMD Athlon Dual Core ql60 1.90 Ghz at this time Thanks, Jim
Changing a CPU rquires a bit of research. Like, What are the parameters of AMD CPU's that will work with the Mobo. That said, Take a look at this: http://products.amd.com/pages/notebookcpuresult.aspx?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1 AND: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/294136-28-will-work-wistron-360a-motherboard-persario-cq50z AND: http://forum.notebookreview.com/hardware-components-aftermarket-upgrades/361215-my-cpu-upgradable-specs-inside.html. That should get you started. ALSO this free program may assist you: http://www.filehippo.com/download_speccy/

To upgrade your system with AMD 3000+ sempron processor is a little bit difficult. AMD 3000+ requires a new motherboard that may not be compatible with your laptop. So I suggest you to get your laptop exchanged with a new one with the above.

It's not posible to upgrade to a dual core, the motherboard is a different design. Keep in mind that the processor, motherboard and memory have a matched frequency. If the processor doesn't match the board then it won't recognize it. Since the board does recognize the T2300, it may be that you need to match the memory in order to get it to boot. Match the memory by going to patriotmem.com and entering the model that the T2300 came from, it will tell you the memory frequency. If the memory matches the processor simply will not work with that board.

Go to Compaq's website (Now HP) and find info (KIP) on the max Ghz it will support and what has to be done (maybe nothing, maybe switches or jumpers) set it and "POP" in the new chip!

You are basically limited to what was optional on the model. So you can only upgrade to one of the following cpus:
Intel Pentium M 745 (1.8-GHz) with 400-MHz front
side bus (FSB)
Intel Pentium M 735 (1.7-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB
Intel Pentium M 725 (1.6-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB
Intel Pentium M 710 TJ85 (1.4-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB;
operates at a lower temperature than other processors
Intel Celeron M 340 (1.5-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB
Intel Celeron M 330 (1.4-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB
And you are limted to 2gb of ram max on this model.
