Question about Gateway 450SX4 P4-M Notebook
I want to upgrade the CPU in my 9-yr. old Gateway #450 desktop PC to something faster than the original one that's in there now. I've replaced the hard drive and the modem several times and I know how to take apart a PC and reassemble it. The motherboard on this PC is proprietary as I understand it, and there may be other compatibility issues with a new CPU.
The problem I have is just the fact that the original CPU is so slow by today's standards but may not be replaceable because of the age of the unit. Can you help?
For a couple of hundred dollars you can get a much faster bare-bones desktop or tower and mb cpu combination and move your hardware to it. Upgrading your 450 isn't worth the trouble though jumpers on the board should handle upgrades to maybe 600MHz.
