It can be done, but I wouldn't recommend doing this if you don't have experience disassembling and reassembling laptops. Make sure you apply thermal compound before installing the new processor or it will overheat. Also, processors in laptop aren't the same as the ones in desktop pc's, so make sure you get one that is specific for a laptop.

Can i up grade my single core cpu pen4 550 3,4GHz to a Quad core or dual core either one would help


Depends on the socket type.. Socket 423 and 478 do not support core duo or quad core processor types. However, if you have LGA 775 (aka socket T) your motherboard will support the following:
Intel Pentium 4 (2.60 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Pentium Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)

F672cr(m1610)and intel core duo?


The Acer M1610 was available with the following processors: Intel Core 2 Duo, Intel Pentium Dual-Core, Intel Pentium D/4, Intel Celeron D/4 2.0GHz.

Based on this information, It is likely that you can support a Core Duo or a Core 2 Duo, however may be limited to the 2.0GHz models due to clock and multiplier limitations on the BIOS. This may be different if there is BIOS upgrades to support faster processors.

Your best option of the above listed processors will be the Core 2 Duo, however their system specifications report that only the Core 2 with 800MHz or less Front Side Bus are supported.

Also note that the Celeron 430 is a 64bit processor, so it is not likely to work on this system either.

Celeron 540 upgrade


Aspire 4315 Specifications Specifications
Part Number
Varies by specifications
Processor / Speed
Intel Celeron mobile processor 530/540/550 (1 MB L2 cache, 1.73/1.86/2 GHz, 533 MHz FSB), supporting Intel 64 architecture
if you have a 2 Ghz processor installed, you will have to replace the motherboard to go with a faster CPU.. which will be spendy..
Hope this helps

Re aspire 7104 being upgraded to duo core processor


No it cant be updated

Your acer aspire is based on the 910GML chipset

The Mobile Intel® 910GML Express chipset is optimized for the Intel® Celeron® M processor.

Here you can compare the 910gml chipset and 945 which is used by the core 2 duo.

http://compare.intel.com/pcc/showchart.aspx?mmID=22210,7419&familyID=7&culture=en-US

As you can see on the page there are key difrences between the chipsets other runs on ddr2, yours on ddr. the FSB support is 400 on yours and 533 / 667 on the 945.

also you can see the supported processor familys right there.

you can look for a
Intel® Celeron® M processor,
Intel® Celeron® M processor Ultra Low Voltage (ULV)


Upgrade cpu with maximum FSB of 400MHz

Buying a laptop


I wasn't aware they still put mobile Pentium 4 processors in laptops. If you can, you should get an Intel Core Duo or Core 2 Duo.

Other than that, the specs look pretty good. You might want to upgrade to 2GB of RAM though if your computer is going to be running Windows Vista.
