Portege 7020 case

I have an old laptop and would like to use the chassis but fit a new motherboard so that I can upgrade the laptop to Windows XP. Is it possible to get motherboards to fit the Portege 7020CT chassis and, if so, where could I get one?

Many thanks.
Niki

Many laptops are specifically designed to be as compact as possible, and in this methodology the cases are often crafted to fit the motherboards exactly, with little waste of space, the cases are not designed to be "generic" so although you may be able to get a different laptop motherboard to fit. the Processor placement, cooling ducting, and cabling placements will most likely be different, also the pin outs for the monitor and for any ports may differ also...

This is not a mod I would usually reccommend, and I am just trying to let you know what you may be in for.

I want to upgrade the mother board in my Vaio PCV-RZ44G Desktop so that I can run Windows 8. What board forms are compatible and is an Intel I3 or I5 CPU better?


You would be better off applying the money to a new computer. You are opening "Pandora's Box" . You will end up with a old case with ALL new components. That may or may not work, A.K.A., "pain and heartache".

The SP3 has caused all kinds of errors and needs to be removed by rolling it back, but in your case your are locked out.
Here's a trick i used many times to save my programs.On fresh XP install page (going from memory) pick choose another folder. **Do NOT allow it to get to the format stage, in case you make an error here, go back.
If all this fails then it sounds like your HDD may be kaput. In that case try and slave the old one to the new to get all your programs off it.(should be able to drag em over)

I have a toshiba portege 7020CT, currently running windows 2000. It is getting impossible to get virus checkers for windows 2000, so would it be possible to upgrade to xp, and what are the issues...


it shouldnt be a problem doing this just depends on how much stuff is stored on it. you can take a toshiba xp disk and format it. Make sure you back up the information before you do on another computer. Windows XP requires a gig of space for updates. Also make sure you have enough physical memory to do so like 256. There should be no activation process of this but if there is need to find the password for the disk. if you have any problems check my website.

Will new micro atx boards fit inside of a hp 4550z case?


Yes i think you will be ok as i can see and your old motherboard is microatx but i strongly recommend you to change case because is not only about motherboard.You will need and better and new power supply and if you want to build a good system with air flow for not overheating your new cpu and other hardware i strongly recommend you to change and chassis!!You can find a "nice" case with $50-$70 bucks if you dont want to spend money on case,but you will need power supply for sure

Can the motherboard of this computer be upgraded? if so, what motherboards will fit in the case/are compatible? (xp)


The D610 is the improved model of the D600. The motherboard cannot be upgraded but it is possible to upgrade the RAM and processor.
However, aside from a ram upgrade and maybe a hard drive upgrade, I'd look at replacing the system as very quickly you lose cost effectiveness especially when a Inspiron 15 starts at $449 this week.

Compaq 120694-101 Motherboard would like to totally upgrade


Hello,

Your PC case will hold any atx motherboard with 4 or less expansion slots. Just about everything made now will fit. You will have to replace your power supply if it still has the standard factory unit installed. The newer boards require an ATX power supply with the additional 4 pin plug for extra power to the CPU. Go to newegg and look for combo deals, they run them all the time. Here is a gigabyte board that is very nice. GIGABYTE GA-MA78GM-US2H Micro ATX AMD Motherboard image-3300643-10440897

I hope this solution helps you out.

Windows not running


Hi rab, windows in general will not allow you to go back wards to ME. Some laptops & other systems place a hidden partition at the top of the drive. These hidden partitions normally are around 2-4Mb in size. (Not enough for windows to finish install). So go to the link provided & create a bootable CD/DVD.
Darik's Boot And Nuke will completely erase the drive, (Including any hidden partitions). You can than install ME without an any issues. Download Darik's Boot and Nuke 1.0.7
