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.

Last year both my sons bought an eMachine, EL1300, desktop PC. I am looking at upgrading the processor, the Motherboards are both WMCP61M's. I was wondering if I could replace the existing AMD Athlon...


I would suggest you not to go for a processor upgrade, if you want to play games. You should consider upgrading your graphics Card(GPU). The processor that you mentioned above is enough for playing High-end games when combined with a good graphics Card. Upgrading your processor will boost very little game performance. But when you will upgrade your graphics Card. You will notice great boost in game performance and more new games will be supported. Two major manufacturer of Graphics Card are NVIDIA and ATi. You can opt any one of them. Nvidia GPUs are considered as a Good Performer. But also ATi is known for its long lasting life. Both the manufacturers produces a long list of models. Opt for the one that suits your Budget and the performance.
Hope this will help for sure.....

I am using amd sempron LE-1100 i want to upgrade to a gaming pc so that i can play the sims3. so if i like to upgrade to amd athlon x2 how to know my socket type. please help


Your socket is AM2. You can put any AMD processor that has AM2. If the processor is AM3 just upgrade the bios of your motherboard and it should work. If you need further assistance, just leave a comment. Cheers

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.)

Processor complaint


The manufacturer site states:

Socket 478 supports the Intel Pentium 4 processor up to 533MHz FSB

So as long as you get a Socket 478 type P4 processor with a 533MHz FSB or less, it should work.

Uppgrade of a processor


The processor upgrade defends on your motherboard if it supports a processor like Core2Duo, because it all depedns on the motherboard if you can upgrade processor and RAM ,if you buy a new processor and its not supported by your motherboard it will be a wast, but if your computer manufacturer told you that your motherboard can supports a processor like Core2Duo go ahead upgrade to it , that will definitely make teh computer faster and better sicne Core2Duo is a high end processor right now..

Hope that helps...........
