I don't know if it has anything to do with Netscape being discontinued,or that 9.0.0.6 was the last before AOL took control of their platform. I would try to load Mozilla or one of the other free programs and see if it loads properly. If due to the older machine you are using maybe you could just download a fresh copy of the program you are trying to load. You can get free copies from WWW.oldversion.com Good luck and have a good day.

I want to buy a laptop. Please suggest me which processor is best? ie. Intel pentium processor or intel pentium dual core processor? Will intel pentium dual core processor overheat easily?


hello,,,,,,,,,,,,,
First you need to be clear that dual core is the family of Pentium series. so there is no processor called Pentium.............. now regarding your question i would suggest you do not go for dual core... Take core 2 duo or I3 /I5/I7 series of processor..............
I am giving you a configuration in a good budget

Rs 50,800/-
Intel 3 GHZ Core2 Duo Processor,3 GB DDR2/DDR3 RAM, and a 250/320/500 GB HDD. DVD writer, 15.4-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 dpi. integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 video card, integrated modem and sound card, Wifi, Touchpad mouse and in-built speakers. It has interfaces like Express Card slot, S-Video port, 4 USB ports, Firewire port, bluetooth and a 6 in 1 Digital Media Reader. The laptop comes with an inbuilt camera .



It would be better if you can tell me your budget ............... So that i can give you a good configuration ......................

I have IBM p6 motherboard with processor Intel 1.8ghz/256/400/1.75v Processor had demaged. I replaced with Intel 1.8ghz/512/400/1.525v When I starts the system it gave error "0167 no processor bios...


I suggest this is not going to work.
1.Your motherboard is supplying 1.75 DC volts of electricity to the processor socket.
You have installed either a SSpec number SL68Q, or SL62P,
Intel Pentium 4 processor. (The sSpec number is on the top of the processor case)

These Intel Pentium 4 processors use 1.425 to 1.525 DC volts of electricity. If you haven't already, you are going to burn this processor up.

Also, the Intel Pentium 4 that you had before, is based on the Willamette Core. (180nm) These earlier Pentium 4's did not have HT.
Hyperthreading Technology.

The Intel Pentium 4 you have in it now, is based on the Northwood Core. (130nm) These Pentium 4's come with HT.

Even if you could go into your BIOS Setup utility, and change the CPU voltage, and lower it, the HT in the processor you have now, wouldn't work on this motherboard.
(CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another name is Microprocessor, or simply -> Processor)

You won't be able to lower the voltage in BIOS Setup, for this processor. IF you did, then you would change the Front Bus Speed, and the ram memory wouldn't work.

Solution?
Obtain an Intel Pentium 4 processor, that uses the Socket 478 processor socket, has a 400MHz FSB, and is based on the Willamette Core.

Here is a list of Willamette Core, Intel Pentium 4 Microprocessors, that will work,

Intel Pentium II Processor Upgrade


No, this highest the P-II went to was either 400 or 450 Mhz. Upgrading a thinkpad CPU may be difficult. Considering prices on used laptops now, I wouldn't think it would be worthwhile, either.

Trying to download Netscape 7.1


hello there!! thanks for using Fixya.com!

I hope this will help you.

You could try searching through 'Find Programs' or 'Windows Explorer' to see if in fact you do have any previous download attempts which may be interfering with your current download attempt. If you find them, your options would be to either delete them, or complete the download using them instead. That 'previous' stored material issue usually doesn't interfere, but maybe this time - who knows? Good Luck!

you may download the nescape 7.1 from this website.

Upgrading IBM ThinkPad T20 Intel Pentium III to Intel Pentium 4


Patrick, I'm glad to see your enthusiasm to explore and expand on your computer knowledge. Unfortunately I have to be the first to let you know that in this case your ideas on upgrading your systems by simply changing the processors just won't work.

First of all a Pentium 4 (or Centrino, which is the mobile version) literally will not fit into any of the systems you mention. All CPUs are made in specific form factors to fit into different sockets. Most Pentium 4 processors were made for Socket 478 or 478B sockets, which mean they have 478 pins on a chip roughly an inch and a quarter square. The high number of pins allow more signals and data to be passed simultaneously to the motherboard, one way the speed of the CPU operations were increased. Pentium III and older Celerons were mainly socket 370 chips on a chip almost an inch and three quarters square. The lesser number of pins were aligned in six concentric rows with a blank central square. Pentium II and even older Celerons used Socket 7 and any of a half dozen other schemes and were often put on daughtercards to make them somewhat interchangeable. It would be like trying to put a square peg in a round hole.

They also make other forms, like socket 775, 939, and the newest AM2, all of which are pin-incompatible. In certain situations there are adapters that will let you put a newer CPU into an older socket but the specific upgrades you mention have no equivalent.

There are other engineering factors to be considered as well. Not all CPUs run on the same voltage. Many desktop motherboards have been designed that are adjustable either by selecting the operating speed with jumpers (old style) or by electrically sensing the optimum speed of the CPU. Then there are the memory and bus speeds. The CPU has to be able to interact with the memory so they must share a signal speed. This is the Front Side Bus. Older Pentium 4 CPUs were designed to use PC-133 memory but more powerful CPUs. certainly any in the 2.0GHz and up range, are designed for Double Data Rate (DDR), which is PC-2100 up to PC-3200. The pin configuration of the memory is different also to reflect and optimize the faster design. Of course there is now a DDR2 design and most recently DDR3. Core-Duos and Quads use the DDR2 and DDR3 type memory.

Another factor is heat. Faster CPUs run hotter. the system must be designed to accomodate and release the greater amount of heat generated, thus there are larger heatsinks and fans and more vent holes. Otherwise the CPU would start acting erratically and eventually burn out.

Things would be slightly different if you were talking AMD chips, as the socket 472 was much more versitile and could handle a wider range of CPUs and speed, from Duron to Sempron to Athlon XP, all because of the way AMD designed their chips. Of course, they too had to upgrade to surpass physical limitations, leading to the socket 754 and other newer designs.

Desktop machines are much more flexible to upgrade because of the space available and the fact they are designed with expansion slots. If you need a higher video card to run games, or more com ports to run extra printers or whatever, you can generally place a card in a slot to add the functionality. If you reach the design limits of a motherboard you can usually swap it out. Not so with laptops.

Laptops in particular are hard to upgrade because everything is integrated into or designed to plug into the motherboard, which has to fit the case properly like a jigsaw puzzle. This is not to say it is impossible to upgrade somewhat, but usually for laptops it means putting a faster CPU of the same form. Here is an example that is specifically for the IBM T40 laptop:

http://bsnugroho.com/t40upgrade.aspx

No, if you want to upgrade to Pentium 4 or Core Duo or Core Quad speed and performance, you will have to go out and buy a laptop.

Please do not let this discourage your enthusiasm. You share the spirit of the old school to push the limits that has made all of these computer evolutions possible. Consider formal training to round out your knowledge and to expose you to more within the field.

Wireless


Since you have the slot for the wireless card, you can purchase an internal card for the machine, try Price Watch or Ebay. On the processor, the G40 came out with Pentium 4 2.0ghz, 2.4ghz, 2.6ghz, and 3.0ghz. any of these will work as long as they were designed for IBM Thinkpad. I buy most of the processors for my shop off Ebay. I would check there. If you do buy from Ebay, be sure that the processor came from an IBM machine.

CPU Upgrade-Which Sockel?


Here is some information may be useful to you. Intel processors Socket 1 169 pins 486 SX/DX Socket 2 238 pins 486 SX/DX/DX2 Socket 3 237 pins 486 SX/DX/DX2/DX4 Socket 6 235 pins 486 DX4 Socket 4 273 pins Pentium 60 en 66MHz Socket 5 320 pins Pentium 75 t/m 200MHz Socket 7 321 pins Pentium, AMD K6/K6-2/K6-3, Cyrix M1/M2 Socket 8 387 pins Pentium Pro 150 - 200MHz Slot 1 242 pins PII, PIII en Celeron Slot 2 330 pins PII Xeon en P III Xeon Socket 370 370 pins PIII, Celeron, Cyrix III Socket 423/478 423/478 pins Pentium4 Socket 603 603 pins Pentium4 Xeon PAC418 418 pins Intel Itanium PAC611 611 pins Intel Itanium 2 AMD processors Slot A 242 pins Athlon Socket A 453 pins Athlon, Athlon XP, Athlon MP and Duron Socket 754 754 pins AMD Athlon 64 Socket 940 940 pins AMD Opteron Conclusion: You can not upgrade beacuse Armada M700 has a pentium III processor with 370 pins. So the Socket 478 pinned pentium is not suitable. Advise: Try to exchange it with a new laptop or buy a used laptop for suitabl configuration
