Re: internet & mouse

Check the BIOS if the USB support is enabled. check also on pointing or pad device that is also enabled.

Dell Inspiron 1545 red processor:Pentium(R) Dual-core CPU T4400 @2.20GHz is error code 2000-0221, how to solve this problem?

this is a bios level error, you should still be able to run the system. this code is something you get when you hit F12 and run the diagnostics? or is this a blue screen error? you are probably going to need to boot to F2 (setup) then hit "Alt e" Alt F then Alt B the system will beep on the alt f but that's ok once this is done hit esc, save changes and reboot and see if you still get the error

Best cpu upgrade

The Gateway MX8738 Notebook PC uses an Intel Pentium Dual Core Mobile T2060 processor.

{ Look under Specifications, and Components }

Yonah Core based.
Built on the 65 NanoMeter technology. (65nm)

Front Side Bus frequency rate is 533MHz. (FSB 'speed' = 533MHz)
Voltage range it can operate on is from .0762 Volts DC to 1.30 Volts DC

Uses the Socket M processor socket,

The motherboard chipset is an Intel 943GML for the Northbridge chip, and an Intel 82801GBM for the Southbridge chip.
(The Southbridge part number is Intel 82801GBM. It is also referred to as ICH7-M.
Also scroll down to the heading - Southbridge 9XX and 3/4 Series Chipsets. ICH7-M ),

Bookmark the above chart, I'll be referring back to it.

This is a motherboard diagram for the technology used for your motherboard, in the Gateway MX8738 Notebook PC,


The motherboard chipset technology used in your laptop is a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.
(Does not apply to motherboards that support the Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 processors)

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.
Supports the Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

[ High-speed graphics being AGP and PCI-Express.
Does Not apply to anything connected to the PCI bus, or Integrated Graphics.
These are slower processes of a computer, and are handled by the Southbridge chip ]

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer;
Anything to do with the IDE bus, SATA bus, USB bus, Ethernet, and Audio. (Sound)

Therefore you want to look first of all at what processor socket it has, what processor was already installed, and what the Northbridge chip is.

1) Socket M processor socket.
Your replacement processor has to fit in a Socket M processor socket.

2) You know that your BIOS supports an Intel Dual Core processor, and the Yonah Core technology.
The replacement processor has to have a 533MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (533MHz FSB)
Has to operate with .0762 to 1.30 Volts (DC)

3) The Northbridge chip is an Intel 943GML.
Looking at the chart you can see this Northbridge chip will support;

A) Celeron M (Eeech!)
B) Core Solo (Bleech!)
C) Pentium Dual Core

In the list the Pentium Dual Core is the best option.
{ The Celeron M has HALF of the L2 cache that a comparable Pentium M would have.
The Core Solo is just a glorified Pentium 4. It's a Single core processor }

Has to be a mobile Pentium Dual Core that uses a 533MHz FSB.

Based on the Voltage, FSB, and processor socket used (Socket M), the Intel Pentium Dual Core
model T2130, is the best processor your motherboard will support.

What are we talking about here?
You would be going from a processor that operates at a maximum frequency rate of 1.60GigaHertz, to a processor that operates at a maximum frequency rate ('Speed') of 1.87GHz.

Not enough of a performance boost to waste your hard earned money, or time on, IMHO.

I want to buy a laptop. Please suggest me which processor is best? ie. Intel pentium processor or intel pentium dual core processor? Will intel pentium dual core processor overheat easily?

First you need to be clear that dual core is the family of Pentium series. so there is no processor called Pentium.............. now regarding your question i would suggest you do not go for dual core... Take core 2 duo or I3 /I5/I7 series of processor..............
I am giving you a configuration in a good budget

Rs 50,800/-
Intel 3 GHZ Core2 Duo Processor,3 GB DDR2/DDR3 RAM, and a 250/320/500 GB HDD. DVD writer, 15.4-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 dpi. integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 video card, integrated modem and sound card, Wifi, Touchpad mouse and in-built speakers. It has interfaces like Express Card slot, S-Video port, 4 USB ports, Firewire port, bluetooth and a 6 in 1 Digital Media Reader. The laptop comes with an inbuilt camera .

It would be better if you can tell me your budget ............... So that i can give you a good configuration ......................

Os will not load, screen stays black but mouse pointer is visable

Hi nico,I'm assumming you are running vista since this seems to be a fairly common problem.  The problem is that a driver is not loading correctly.  You should be able to restart your computer and boot into safe mode.  Once in safe mode, delete and/or uninstall any files or programs/drivers you downloaded before the problem began.  Some users have blamed Roxio and MagicDisk as programs that have caused this error.  Then restart your computer back in normal mode.If you can not boot into safe mode, then unfortunately you need to begin looking at system repair options like reinstalling windows vista.
Hope this helps, and please don't forget to vote/rate!
