You got a cheap laptop. maybe from walmart or some other store that was selling it for about $400. It doesn't have a processor that you can switch out. I'm sure it's horribly slow for Visa, so my advise would be to sell it and get something with a dual core.

Laptop doesnt boot when multi core processing is enabled


By multi core I assume you mean when enabling all of the true processor cores. In your laptop's case it's a Dual Core processor which means there are only 2 phyiscal cores and does not contain HyperThreading Technology (HT Technology) which enables "Virtual processor cores"

Could be caused by a couple of things:

1. Your processor doesn't support multi-core processing which is a possibility given there is no HT technology for your CPU. In which case there is nothing to fix. Even though the BIOS may have this option. You can check to see if both cores are enabled when you have multi-core processing disabled; In windows right click on your taskbar and click on "Task Manager" Click on the performance tab. You will want to count the number of processor displays you see. Refer to this to see what I mean:

b129bf4a-74da-49fb-868b-3bfda7229b97.png

The reason I have 8 CPU displays is because I'm running an i7-3820 CPU which supports HT Technology; So I have 4 physical processors cores and 4 virtual processors cores (created by HT Technology architecture)

2. You are running Core2Duo CPU with dual physical processors and have disabled 1 of the 2 cores because your laptop won't boot. This sounds more like you need to update the BIOS on the motherboard or maybe a bad CPU might be the cause as well.

Hope this helps.

Best cpu upgrade


The Gateway MX8738 Notebook PC uses an Intel Pentium Dual Core Mobile T2060 processor.

http://support.gateway.com/us/en/s/Mobile/2007/SonicC/1014366R/1014366Rnv.shtml

{ Look under Specifications, and Components }

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_Dual-Core_microprocessors#Dual-Core_Mobile_processors

Yonah Core based.
Built on the 65 NanoMeter technology. (65nm)

Front Side Bus frequency rate is 533MHz. (FSB 'speed' = 533MHz)
Voltage range it can operate on is from .0762 Volts DC to 1.30 Volts DC

Uses the Socket M processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_M

The motherboard chipset is an Intel 943GML for the Northbridge chip, and an Intel 82801GBM for the Southbridge chip.
(The Southbridge part number is Intel 82801GBM. It is also referred to as ICH7-M.
Also scroll down to the heading - Southbridge 9XX and 3/4 Series Chipsets. ICH7-M ),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core.2FCore_2_mobile_chipsets

Bookmark the above chart, I'll be referring back to it.

This is a motherboard diagram for the technology used for your motherboard, in the Gateway MX8738 Notebook PC,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

Primer:

The motherboard chipset technology used in your laptop is a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.
(Does not apply to motherboards that support the Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 processors)

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.
Supports the Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

[ High-speed graphics being AGP and PCI-Express.
Does Not apply to anything connected to the PCI bus, or Integrated Graphics.
These are slower processes of a computer, and are handled by the Southbridge chip ]

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer;
Anything to do with the IDE bus, SATA bus, USB bus, Ethernet, and Audio. (Sound)

Therefore you want to look first of all at what processor socket it has, what processor was already installed, and what the Northbridge chip is.

1) Socket M processor socket.
Your replacement processor has to fit in a Socket M processor socket.

2) You know that your BIOS supports an Intel Dual Core processor, and the Yonah Core technology.
The replacement processor has to have a 533MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (533MHz FSB)
Has to operate with .0762 to 1.30 Volts (DC)

3) The Northbridge chip is an Intel 943GML.
Looking at the chart you can see this Northbridge chip will support;

A) Celeron M (Eeech!)
B) Core Solo (Bleech!)
C) Pentium Dual Core

In the list the Pentium Dual Core is the best option.
{ The Celeron M has HALF of the L2 cache that a comparable Pentium M would have.
The Core Solo is just a glorified Pentium 4. It's a Single core processor }

Has to be a mobile Pentium Dual Core that uses a 533MHz FSB.

Based on the Voltage, FSB, and processor socket used (Socket M), the Intel Pentium Dual Core
model T2130, is the best processor your motherboard will support.

What are we talking about here?
You would be going from a processor that operates at a maximum frequency rate of 1.60GigaHertz, to a processor that operates at a maximum frequency rate ('Speed') of 1.87GHz.

Not enough of a performance boost to waste your hard earned money, or time on, IMHO.

get the download core temp off cnet.com

download and install then run it

watch your cpu core temperature

set a warning in the core temp features to alert by alarm when the temp gets above say 80 C

if it hits 80C.. its running too hot

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.
