To be quite honest I would replace the fan but before you do take it in and see if the wires just came loose they tend to do that with laptops

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.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Is there a good free mobo utility to tell U what the temperatures are etc? I have a dualcore intel ma7 gateway laptop. Thanks


Sure, speedfan works with most motherboards. I have a msi board and it doesn't show some of the values properly.

I'm using a Everest Ultimate edition, its not free but works perfectly with my motherboard

If display issue: connect an external monitor to see if any change.

Could be spyware - boot in Safe Mode (F8) - download, install and run SpyBot (spybot.com).

Good luck.

Help me to install WinXP in a Gateway Laptop that came with SATA HDD


you have probably already fixed this but maybe others can find this a little helpful. i had to downgrade a gateway ma7 for one of my customers who had lost their recovery cd with vista on it. Their HD had gone bad.

The reason the XP installer says "no HD" is because the the drivers required by the gateways Sata controller (hd controller) are not preloaded on the xp install disc. The only way around this is to download the windows xp compatible sata drivers from gateways website and then slipstream them into a custon windows xp install cd. its actually not as difficult as it sounds. just download the sata driver, a slipstreaming program called nlite.

1 download and install nlite
2 put in your xp install cd, and run nlite, when nlite asks, browse to the i386 folder (your installation files)
3 you will have lots of options to choose from, but for this purpose, choose "add drivers" and select the location of the gateway drivers (c:\cabs\something) i think.
4 finish and burn the cd. then use it to install windows xp.

this little guide isnt step by step, but with a little trial and error you should get by
