Talk to an IT teckie but there are some many up grades for processors that they do not always fit older mother boards. You may have to up grade the mother board to achieve what you want.

Cpu upgrade


A) http://www.fixya.com/support/t18040647-cpu_upgrade

B) http://www.fixya.com/support/t18040647-cpu_upgrade

(Last time I looked, this was the world's largest product support website, and there ARE technicians from AROUND the world; on here!!!!!!!! Do we count as an 'IT techie'? ........Lol!)

In all three of your posts, not once has the laptop manufacturer name, and model number been stated.

Processor (CPU) support depends on;

A) What processor socket is on the motherboard?

B) What motherboard chipset does the motherboard use?

C) What is the processor that is installed now?

With these parameters known, THEN you can think about CPU (Processor) upgrade.

1) CPU (Processor) has to FIT, the processor socket being used.
THIS, is also IF the motherboard HAS a processor socket; and is NOT soldered directly to the motherboard.

2) The motherboard chipset supports the Processor (CPU)
It has to be known if the motherboard chipset will support, the CPU (Processor) that you want to upgrade to.

For older computers the motherboard chipset consists of;
A) Northbridge chip
2) Southbridge chip

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

With this technology the Northbridge chip, of the motherboard chipset; is what determines Processor (CPU) support.
Newer technology, such as used per se by the Intel Core i processors, does NOT use a Northbridge chip.

3) Looking at the existing Processor now, you can determine;

A) Voltage Range: What voltage range does the exisiting Processor use now?
Does the upgrade Processor also fall within this Voltage Range?

B) Core technology, and architecture:
Example:
Existing Processor uses the Conroe Core technology, and the 90nm architecture. (NanoMeter)
Does the upgrade Processor also use the same Core technology, and architecture?

If not is there a BIOS upgrade available?
(The motherboard chipset also comes into play again, here)

Enough of this generic prattle.........
Post the laptop manufacturer name, and model number.
Then I, or someone else can give you the facts; and not generic information.

Post back in a Comment.

Dell inspiron 1420 cpu upgrade ???


There are very little things that you can upgrade in an laptop. The processor that you have on your laptop is top end processor in its family and the thae best you can do is to go for a faster core2duo as any other processor will not fit on your laptop motherboard.

Contact your system manufacturer to know about compatible processor for your laptop.

I have acer aspire 4736z, can I upgrade the processor to 3.2 Ghz?


Please note that CPU upgrades in notebooks/laptops/netbooks are highly problematic because they depend on often uncertain motherboard specifications (different notebook models bearing the same series number in your question can have different internal and external specification and be based on different motherboards).

The most serious problem you face is that CPU upgrades in laptops/notebooks/netbooks inevitably require near complete disassembly and the correct reassembly of the computer. Inevitably, this type of work is best done by an experienced professional, trained for and capable of performing a warrantied repair. Understandably, the associated labor costs will be on the high side.

Also, upgrading the CPU requires the user to first risk expenditure on an item that cannot be returned to the seller or supplier if later found to be incompatible but could still be a potentially expensive replacement product, without being absolutely certain that is compatible with the motherboard for which it is intended.

So you will need to do extensive research on the specification of the precise motherboard of the precise model of your notebook. To do this, you will need the full, long, specific model number plus also the Serial Number (S/N) and Part Number (P/N) of the computer that are usually printed on a label underneath the computer. From these, you should obtain the P/N of the motherboard, then navigate to the support and product information pages of the motherboard manufacturer's website to verify the CPU compatibility specifications of the motherboard and then proceed from there.

Intel Pentium Mobile processor T4200 (1 MB L2 cache, 2 GHz, 800 MHz FSB, 35 W), or T3400 (1 MB L2 Cache, 2.16 GHz, 667 MHz FSB, 35 W), supporting Intel 64 architecture


Your notebook features the above Central Processing Unit (CPU) in its standard specification, according to Acer. This CPU is commonly referred to as a Dual Core / Intel Pentium M / 2.2GHz / 64 Bit Processor. This type and Model of Processor is outdated and the upgrade options available to you are limited.

The indications are that your best course of action would be to back up any important data stored on this notebook's Hard Disk Drive (HDD), restore the notebook to Factory Settings, sell it on eBay or CraigsList or any similar website popular, in your geographical location, for the buying and selling of Used Consumer Goods and then put any sale income raised towards a new, state-of-the-art notebook capable of performing the function(s) in which the current notebook is disappointing you and steering you towards radical thoughts such as CPU upgrades.

At the very least, consider several or all of the far easier, far cheaper and far less labor-intensive and labor-expensive upgrade options to improve the power, speed and performance of this notebook before contemplating a CPU Upgrade, such as, a Maximum Capacity RAM Upgrade, an Operating System (O/S) Upgrade, upgrading to a higher performance, higher Spin Speed and/or higher capacity HDD or newer technology Solid State Drive (SSD).

Your full notebook specification and CPU Upgrade Options can be found on the support pages of the official Acer and Intel websites below:

What is the best processor for my hp pavilion ze4300? Do i need to upgrade the processor if i upgrade the memory to 1GB?


No you do not need to upgrade the cpu after upgrading the memory. The best processor is likely the one in it, however it may support other processors in the same family (ie, if it supports the i7 processor it may support any i7 processor, 1ghz or 2ghz, or if it's an amd turion 64 x2 tl-56 it should support the tl-58 and others. Be sure to purchase a new cpu from somewhere that does offer returns if it doesn't work.)

  • Any AMD processor for AM2 socket that has a higher rating will do. Best one is http://www.mwave.com.au/newAU/mwaveAU/productdetail.asp?SKU=19040125
All it takes is a powerfull enough motherboard with a matching BIOS.
Or you could buy this combo

Which processor can I upgrade to?


Honestly, it is normally not worth it to upgrade the cpu on a laptop. Laptops are build to deal with a certain amount of heat and adding a faster cpu can cause the current cpu cooling fans to not get the job done anymore. You will seem instability in your system and could possibly damage it due to over heating.

With that said you would only be able to upgrade to a very slightly higher speed cpu and your money would be better spent else where. Some good ways to speed up a laptop are max out your memory or install a faster hard drive. For example if your current drive is a stock 5400rpm unit a 7200rpm drive would give you a nice boost. You could also look into a solid state option.

Both these upgrades will give your laptop a better boost without the hassle and risk of a cpu upgrade.

Processor upgrade


Your CPU is tied into your motherboard. Only CPUs that are compatible with your motherboard will work. You can get your motherboard model from start>programs>system tools>system information. Once you have the model # then you can start searching for the CPU options. Good Luck.

Your motherboard has a good support for various Processors. If you want to go for the latest then you can go for Palamino core Athlon 4.Its compatible all the KV7 series boards but all you have to check is "Till WHAT clock speed can your board support?" .
