Question about Compaq Presario 1200 Notebook

2 Answers

I want to upgrade my Compaq Presario 1200 AMD laptop Hard Drive - any limitations?

From the specs, and wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compaq_Presario_1200

I gather it has a 3300 rpm hard disk... do I need to match it, or will any IDE laptop HD work with this model?

Just looking to get a larger... say 25GB HD.

TIA

Several companies such as AMD and Cyrix are also developing processors which are completely compatible with Intel processors. This means that they are capable of emulating every processor instruction in the the Intel chips.

INTEL SOCKET INFORMATION
Intel designed a set of sockets. Each of these sockets supported a certain range of processors. Below we have listed the complete specifications and layouts of each of these sockets.

PROCESSOR HISTORY AND INFORMATION
Below is a listing of all known processor manufacturers made to date. In the below list is information about major processors listed by the date manufactured as well as a brief description of the technology and advances of each of the processors.
INTEL 4004 - Microprocessor introduced in 1970 with the speed of 108KHz was the worlds first microprocessor.
INTEL 8080 - Microprocessor introduced in 1974 running at the speed of 2 MHz was used in the world's first PC, the Altair.
INTEL 8086 (Code Name: P1)- Microprocessor first introduced in 1976. The 80086 had a 16-bit architecture that allowed it to work with 16-bit binary numbers and pass them through a 16-bit data bus. The 8086 was available in clock speeds of 5MHz, 8MHz, and 10MHz.
MOTOROLA 68000 - Microprocessor released in 1979 was later chosen by Apple for the Macintosh computer.
INTEL 8087 - Floating-point math compressor compliant with the 8086 / 8080 microprocessor family.
INTEL 8088 - Microprocessor released in 1979. The 8088 was the first Processor used in the original IBM PC and XT personal computers because it was less expensive than the 8086 microprocessor because of the availability of less expensive eight-bit data bus supporting chips made it the microprocessor for the IBM PC. The 8088 was available in speeds from 4.77 MHz and 8MHz.and used the 16-bit architecture allowing it to work internally with 16-digit numbers. The 8088 had the ability of addressing up to 1MB of RAM.
INTEL 80286 (Code Name: P2) - Microprocessor introduced by Intel in 1982 which commonly is referred to as the 286 processor. The 286 processor supported 16-bit architecture, supported virtual memory, and was available in clock speeds of 8MHz, 10MHz, and 12MHz. The 286 was around 20 times faster than the predecessor 8088.
INTEL 80287 - A compliant processor to the 286, a floating-point math coprocessor. Specially designed 286 chips have the capability of placing the optional 80287 processor on top of it, giving the computer a math coprocessor.
INTEL 80386DX (Code Name: P3) - Microprocessor manufactured in 1985 was the next generation of Intel processors. The 80386DX included the math compressor, unlike the 80386SX, and still featured the 32-bit architecture and built-in multitasking. The chip was available in clock speeds of 16MHz, 20MHz, 25MHz, and 33MHz.
SPARC - Released in 1987 is short for Scaleable Processor ARChiture by Sun - used RISC (Reduced Instruction Set) to speed up processing.
INTEL 80486DX (Code Name: P4) - Microprocessor released April 10th 1989. The 486DX featured a built-in memory cache and 32-bit architecture. It had more than three times the computing power of the 386DX and was available in clock speeds of 25MHz, 33MHz, and 50MHz.
INTEL 80386SX - Microprocessor introduced in 1989 was the next generation of Intel processors. The 80386SX lacked a math coprocessor but still featured the 32-bit architecture and built-in multitasking. The chip was available in clock speeds of 16MHz, 20MHz, 25MHz, and 33MHz.

Any IDE will fit, BUT there are at least two different IDE types. Parallel ATA (PATA), and Serial ATA (SATA). findout whether or not your laptop HDD is pata or sata, and then you can try looking at www.newegg.com and they will have good prices on new laptop hard drives. try looking for a 4200rpm or faster.

Scroll down a little. Stop at Motherboard - M2N78-LA (Violet)

1) Motherboard Size: 9.6 Inches X 9.6 Inches
(24.4cm X 24.4cm)

This means the Form Factor is Micro-ATX,

Since you have an AMD Phenom X4 9650 processor, make sure the new motherboard will support it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Phenom_microprocessors#.22Agena.22_.28B2.2FB3.2C_65_nm.2C_Quad-core.29

Make sure the new motherboard will support DDR2 Sdram ram memory, at 800MegaHertz. (800MHz)
That is PC2-6400

Up to 16GB of ram memory. Specs state you have 8GB installed now. (Product Specifications)
If you are running XP, Vista, or Win 7 that is 32-bit, you will ONLY see about 3.0Gb to 3.5GB.

You need a 64-bit Operating System for more than 4.0GB of ram memory.

I need to replace hard drive what kind


A) Harddrives are measured by their Width.
Laptop harddrives are 2-1/2 inches across in Width.
2.5

Desktop harddrives are 3.5

B) Harddrive technology has evolved from IDE (PATA) to SATA.

The Compaq Presario CQ70-120us Notebook PC, uses a
250GigaByte SATA 2.5 harddrive.
(250GB)

I know it's a SATA harddrive, by the manufacturer year period, and by the motherboard Chipset used. Specifically the Southbridge chip,

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The motherboard chipset used in your laptop, consists of a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.

The Southbridge chip as we know, is an Intel ICH9m
A southbridge chip for a Mobile computer, or otherwise known as a 'laptop'. That is what the -> m, at the end stands for. Mobile.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_mobile_chipsets

Northbridge chipset will be a;
GL40, or GS40, or GS45, or GM45, or PM45

The Northbridge chip handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

The AGP and PCI Express technologies are HIGH-speed graphics.

A graphics card in a PCI slot, or using Integrated Graphics; is NOT HIGH-speed graphics.

The Southbridge chip handles the Slower capabilities of a computer.
1) Anything using the PCI bus. (Like a PCI graphics card for one example)

2) IDE bus

Will support Up To an AMD Athlon XP 2600+,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Athlon_XP_microprocessors


Maximum Front Side Bus support is 266Megahertz.
(Max FSB = 266MHz)

(Motherboard manual states 133MHz.
Note that AMD processors are 'Double-pumped'.
This = 266MHz )

Supports AMD Athlon, AMD Athlon XP, and AMD Duron, processors.

Note in the CPU Support chart where it states -
Socket 462 > AMD Athlon XP > 2600+ (.13u)
The .13u stands for 130nm core architecture technology.

(nm = NanoMeter.

That is DDR Sdram, that operates at a maximum frequency rate of 400MegaHertz. (400MHz)

The motherboard, may not have SPD features. (Serial Presence Detect)
Do not know if the ram memory does, either.
SPD,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_presence_detect

Sometimes it takes turning the computer off, wait 1 minute, then turn it back on. Sometimes it takes 2 to 3 times of this.
If BIOS doesn't set the voltage up 1/10th of a volt, you may have to do it manually in your BIOS Setup (Utility)

Where did you get DDR Sdram that uses 2.6 Volts, and is it high-performance ram memory?
Post the manufacturer name of the ram memory, and it's manufacturer code, in a Comment.

[The normal factory default setting for the ram memory voltage, is 2.5 Volts. I would see if BIOS Setup will allow bumping the voltage up, before I would EVEN think of a BIOS upgrade ]

Will a AMD Athlon 64 processor work in a Compaq Presario SR1050NX Desktop? My old processor Died and I purchased one of these off of Ebay, now just want to make sure it will work...


No Donnie, the motherboard for the Compaq Presario SR1050NX won't support an AMD Athlon 64 processor.

The reason why is;
A) The Processor socket on the SR1050NX's motherboard is a Socket A. (Also known as Socket 462)

Hp Support > Compaq Presario SR1050NX > Specifications > Motherboard Specifications >

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00072236&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=405454

CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short.
Look to the right of the CPU heading:
Socket A (Processor socket)

This is the Socket A processor socket used on your motherboard,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_A

You can click on the photo of the Socket A processor socket, to the upper Right, to enlarge.

The AMD Athlon 64 line of processors came out after the Socket A, and used the Socket 939 first.
Then on to the Socket AM2.
