You listed this under PC Laptop? It's a Desktop? Have you ever done a CPU upgrade? You are limited to what will work with your machine, Mobo and other components. Your Mobo is, of course, AMD compatible, so if you read the specs: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireX1200/AspireX1200sp2.shtml The AMD Athlon X2 dual-core is best option. Memory is a easy option to increase speed a bit. Remember, with a 32bit OS the most memory it can use is 3.80 GB's More or Less. With a 64bit OS use more. I have done many CPU upgrades, you may not get the Speed/ processing increase you expect. After all, the components work in conjunction with one another. Do your research on Socket type, Pins, Power requirments, etc., etc.Check, Verify, then re-Check and re-Verify.

SOURCE: The HP Presario A900 shuts down within 5 minutes of start up

If your laptop is overheating, it means that the Processor fan is not working. You can damage it further if you keep trying to us it. Although I must say, this is the first time I've heard of using frozen veggies to cool it down. I have a client that bought a portable Air conditioner to cool his laptop. I fixed it by replacing the fan.

The fact that the unit works while being cooled externally points directly to the fan.
Is the unit out of warranty?
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

You bios versions start at f.03,f.04,f.05, f.07, f.08,,,

The date and version that you posted does not match and bios version for your model.

The only reason you update a bios is if it falls under the problems
listed for the new bios to correct.

Say your lap came with f.05, the only reason you would update to f.07 is because you had a graphic error,that the new update fixed.


The link below is the page for your drivers, if you look at bios,it shows the newest,if you click on version,you will see all the ones
that where made.

You should double check to make sure that you have the right bios version.

Acer aspire x1200 - Will not turn on. no power at all


Had this computer to fix and it ended up needing a new CPU in order for it to come on! Tried everything before this and what clued me in was unplugging the 4-pin molex from the motherboard and seeing all the fans spin continually with just the bigger 24pin connector in there. That 4-pin connector powers the processor so that was it! Change out that processor.
Leaving my solution here for any others that may come by.

I would like to upgrade my Acer Aspire 4315 PC Notebook it has celeron processor 1.73ghz 533mhz fsb 2.53gb ram running on win xp pro what dual core processor can this laptop take?


Well most modern laptops cannot not be upgraded in this manner because the processors are hard soldered on the motherboards. Even if you have a removable type processor the newer dual cores will not be compatible with your type of motherboard.

Theoretically you could because both type of processors have the same socket.
Here is a link with more data about the socket:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_775

Want to upgrade my proccesor


OMG!! doogie812, quit giving people bad advice. From what you have suggested, you know nothing about computer hardware. You can upgrade the processor in this system and it will not effect the OS one bit, except make it process the data a little quicker. With this system, if you had done any research at all, it only comes with 1GB of memory, you should of suggested to this person to add more memory.

Your computer has one of these options:

(1MB L2 cache, 2.13GHz, 533MHz FSB)
or
Intel® Celeron® Processor 550
(1MB L2 cache, 2.0GHz, 533MHz FSB)

Intel® Celeron® Processor 540
(1MB L2 cache, 1.86GHz, 533MHz FS
or
Intel® Celeron® Dual-Core Processor E1400
(512KB shared L2 Cache, 2.0GHz, 800MHz FSB)
or
Intel® Celeron® Dual-Core Processor T1400
(512KB shared L2 Cache, 1.73GHz, 533MHz FSB) spacer.gif

Check the features with Acer first and see if your motherboard model support that speed processor.

Processor


I told you my opinion, If I was in your shoes I won't upgrade the CPU.Professionals do not do works against Factory specifications, and I fixcomputers for living.
Acer says Pentium dual is not supported on Acer 4315, I can only tell you not to do such an upgrade.
Itwould be the same as if you ask me if you can mount a Jaguar engine ona Mini, yes, for sure there is the way to mount it, but the car won'twork as it is supposed to, and risk to blow at first corner.
If you really want to replace your CPU consider the following.
Acersays pentium 2 dual core is not supported on 4315, if you do ityourself you risk to damage the computer. Do not do the CPU upgrade ifthis is your only laptop, or if you care of this laptop, chance ofdamaging laptop are high. This kind of upgrades are done more as anexperiment.
I know Core 2 Duo T5300 1.73 Ghz had been installedsuccessfully on Aspire 4315, Acer says not to install any core duo, Iknow for sure Pentium duo T5200 1.6 Ghz works on Aspire 4315 with noneed for replacing cooling system.
Both chipset are difficult to find, best place to find them is Ebay.
