Toshiba 4600 - replace P3 700mhz with P3 1ghz

Hi, can I simply pull out the existing CPU and replace it with the faster P3 1ghz processor which some 4600's came with (just that the serial number for the motherboard is different). The only difference in the specs is that the voltage is slightly different 1.6V (700mhz) and 1.7V (1ghz). Thanx!

No you can't pull out as the CPU is surface mounted soldered on the mainboard, only manufacturer or approved repairer can take it out and put the new CPU with only the correct voltage specs.

don't try yourself otherwise you will damage the entire laptop.

I cant play fifa 09 on my acer aspire one 522, is it with the resolution? how can I fix this?

Your processor is the problem : It's a dual core 1GHz AMD C-Series processor C-50 and even though it might barely be able to run the game, the game was made before the processor type was released, and thus the game doesn't know what the heck it is and only sees that its a 1GHz CPU and thus considers it to slow to run the game.

Here are the system requirements:
Operating Systems: Windows XP SP2 / Windows Vista - CPU: 2.4 GHz
- RAM: 512 Megabytes of RAM (1 GB required for Windows Vista)
- DirectX 9.0c Compatible 3D accelerated 128 MB video card or equivalent (must support Shader Model 2.0 or above)
- DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card
512kbit/s or greater broadband connection for online gameplay
- 6.1 GB free hard disk space for DVD format and additional space required for DirectX 9.0c installation
- 8x or faster DVD-ROM drive

Hello, is there any difference between various Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 motherboards? Would it be hazardous to buy one of those old models to replace another (unfortunately dead) Mb? (got a PIII750...

They are the same.
The Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 is a model series.

Hazardous? In what way? Solder joints containing lead?

I don't have an exact Service Manual to give to you. But if you look through these, you should be able to find enough information to disassemble your laptop.



[I found this in a search just now. Wanted to see if it used a mobile Processor or Desktop Processor.

Can I install a better CPU into my Toshiba Satellite P305D-S8834 17 1 Widescreen Notebook Computer then the AMD Turion X2 Processor RM-70 it came with?

Changing CPU is a serious change. When your unit was built the processor speed and type were written into the BIOS. When we change the CPU to a different type there is a chance that the BIOS will not recognize it and refuse to boot up. Also Windows was installed with the original CPU and a major change in hardware could mess up Windows.

I did some research and found this model comes with a 2.0-GHz AMD Turion X2 Dual-Core RM-70 CPU and 4GB of RAM. This is not the fastest CPU that can be put in a laptop but a very good one. (faster than mine)

I can guide you through the steps to replace it but my advice is stick with what you have until it breaks and buy a faster laptop. The upgrade won't gain you enough to justify the expense.

What is the best processor for my hp pavilion ze4300? Do i need to upgrade the processor if i upgrade the memory to 1GB?

No you do not need to upgrade the cpu after upgrading the memory. The best processor is likely the one in it, however it may support other processors in the same family (ie, if it supports the i7 processor it may support any i7 processor, 1ghz or 2ghz, or if it's an amd turion 64 x2 tl-56 it should support the tl-58 and others. Be sure to purchase a new cpu from somewhere that does offer returns if it doesn't work.)

Which processor can I upgrade to?

Honestly, it is normally not worth it to upgrade the cpu on a laptop. Laptops are build to deal with a certain amount of heat and adding a faster cpu can cause the current cpu cooling fans to not get the job done anymore. You will seem instability in your system and could possibly damage it due to over heating.

With that said you would only be able to upgrade to a very slightly higher speed cpu and your money would be better spent else where. Some good ways to speed up a laptop are max out your memory or install a faster hard drive. For example if your current drive is a stock 5400rpm unit a 7200rpm drive would give you a nice boost. You could also look into a solid state option.

Both these upgrades will give your laptop a better boost without the hassle and risk of a cpu upgrade.

I am wanting to upgrade the cpu to a faster

You dont need to know your southbridge info or anything like that, you just need to know the socket type for the processor. If they make a processor for the socket type, then you can assume it is compatible.

Its the same type of processor but the thing is their different speeds and one cold be hit by the mobo processor limiter and thats whats casuing it to not show up right, since you flashed the bios it nothing more to do. its onlya prob if you start having issues its nothing to worry aout other than that.

I just want to know if I can replace my Toshiba P305 S8906 Intel Core 2 Dou Processor T6400 Centrino 2.0 for a better and faster processor

Should be able to unless it's onboard. If not then yes. Just ensure that the motherboard will support the new CPU that you wish to install.

Improving the speed of the computer

Look dear the cost of the processor is too high and more over it is related with the other components of the Laptop. So it is totaly worhtless for trying to replace the Processor of the system. however you can increase the performance of the system by adding additional or replace the present RAM in the Laptop.
