Re: cpu upgrade

To upgrade the cpu, you will still need to use the same type of cpu. A socket 478 motherboard will not work with a socket 775 processor. The pin configuration is different.

Is upgrading from a 3.06GHZ to a 3.2GHZ cpu a good upgrade

It's not worth the money or the effort. You wouldn't notice much of a difference in speed at all.

CPU compatability

It is not compatible. If your fsb is 533mhz then any replacement cpu would need to be a 533mhz fsb chip. This is unless your motherboard supports different fsb's. You will need to check your manual or the manufacturers website to see what cpu's your system supports. Hope this helps.

Cpu upgrade

Upgrading the CPU in a notebook is a bad idea.

Even if you get a compatible CPU, a faster processor means more heat, and notebooks are not design to handle it. You would risk major damage.

If you want to make it faster, try increasing the memory.

Good luck!

I have a dell inspiron 9100

It appears you have the latest BIOS revision for your notebook.

That chip is not supported by your motherboard/BIOS revision. You may want to contact dell, or keep checking the support download page to see if they release an update allow you to upgrade.

Intel processors Socket 1 169 pins 486 SX/DX Socket 2 238 pins 486 SX/DX/DX2 Socket 3 237 pins 486 SX/DX/DX2/DX4 Socket 6 235 pins 486 DX4 Socket 4 273 pins Pentium 60 en 66MHz Socket 5 320 pins Pentium 75 t/m 200MHz Socket 7 321 pins Pentium, AMD K6/K6-2/K6-3, Cyrix M1/M2 Socket 8 387 pins Pentium Pro 150 - 200MHz Slot 1 242 pins PII, PIII en Celeron Slot 2 330 pins PII Xeon en P III Xeon Socket 370 370 pins PIII, Celeron, Cyrix III Socket 423/478 423/478 pins Pentium4 Socket 603 603 pins Pentium4 Xeon PAC418 418 pins Intel Itanium PAC611 611 pins Intel Itanium 2 AMD processors Slot A 242 pins Athlon Socket A 453 pins Athlon, Athlon XP, Athlon MP and Duron Socket 754 754 pins AMD Athlon 64 Socket 940 940 pins AMD Opteron Conclusion: You can not upgrade beacuse Armada M700 has a pentium III processor with 370 pins. So the Socket 478 pinned pentium is not suitable. Advise: Try to exchange it with a new laptop or buy a used laptop for suitabl configuration
