    so maybe amd athlon 64x2 6000+ 3.0ghz will fit?

    Upgrades are based upon make and model of the motherboard , not the existing CPU's.

I am taking it that since you had a dual core 4400+, your using a AM2 motherboard..
Bout the best you could do with that board is find another dual core, perhaps an AMD FX70 or FX62. Unfortunately AMD is not keeping up with intel , they sorta failed with the quad core.
If your smart, you'll save till you get enough to jump a couple levels and replace the ram, cpu and motherboard.

What is the best upgrade cpu for a compaq presario sr5110nx 32 bit vista O.S... ATHLON 64 (single core) without having to go to 64 bit, and/or new drivers ?


The 400W PSU is going to limit your CPU selection to dual-core at best, although you might be able to get away with a higher-end dual-core CPU if your RAM is not ECC and not dual-channel, and you're not running anything serious in terms of a graphics or sound card or a SCSI array.

Given your current setup I'd really look for a 1.6Ghz dual-core Athlon which has a decent amount of KB in its Level 1 and Level 2 cache, but 3MB for its Level 3 cache.

Anything beyond that ballpark of a CPU upgrade is certainly well within the bounds of diminishing returns, and you should look at getting a new PSU, motherboard, and probably RAM (I'm guessing you're using DDR2 RAM currently).

I have an Emachines EL1210-01e, and i was wondering what cpu i could put in it, without using too much power i want at least 2.8 ghz at miniium and dual or quad core


The Dual and Quad core processors will not fit on your motherboard because it does not have the CPU pins that the later CPUs.
You best bet is to upgrade the motherboard in your computer and the switch mode power supply.

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:
