I have laptop lenovo N500 model 4233-65G. currently it have core2duo T6400. i want to upgrade processor. please tell me suitable options. i had heard that most of the laptops dont support this replacement.


The processor you have is already pretty zippy, so why worry about changing it? It usually doesn't pay to upgrade a processor anyway. The laptop was designed to use the processor in it, and trying to use something else may lead to power problems, overheating and shorter battery life.

If you are trying to improve your laptop's performance, you would be better off adding extra RAM to the capacity of the computer. Make sure Windows is free of unnecessary startup applications, and scan your computer for viruses or other malware. Also check for updated drivers for computer. Often there are later versions that may help.

Thanks for using Fixya!

I have a ACEer 5315 model no ICL50 running Windows Vista. To say Vista is **** is an understatement. I want to switch to Windows 7 but guess I will need a lot more RAM for this. Can I upgrade Ram on this...


Hi,
I recommend that you switch to Windows 7 without upgrading your RAM. Windows 7 is a lot faster, better and uses less RAM than Vista. Recommended RAM for running Windows 7 is 1GB but I have installed them on a Centrino 1.5GHz with 768Mb of RAM and they run perfectly.
So make the upgrade to Windows 7 anyway and if you feel that you need more power then you can get more RAM.
Also, download Windows 7 upgrade advisor to check if your pc is compatible. Download upgrade advisor here.

I want to upgrade my inspiron 1100 processor


To be honest, the Inspiron 1100 is probably not worth the effort and cost to upgrade
The fast is proc is a 2.4 GHz Pentium 4 CPU, max ram 1GB of RAM,
You can find several dell portables below $500

Ram upgrading


u can check with Dell...but mind it...there is a limit to up ur RAM....though u may upgrade ur RAM to 7GB ur processor may not be able to handle that much of data that travels thru the RAM....so beyond a limit any extra RAM is of no use....
so check with Dell how much RAM it can hold to the MAX

No problem I am wondering can I upgrade my hp pavilion dv2210 to a new mother board with a faster CPU speed and more graphics memory i have nvidia gforce go 6150 chipset now i want to go with something...


Please check with hp if they can allow you to do that ...Incase if you end up doing this you might not able to get your system up and running ...as you are goiing to change the system board,graphic card
and if you want to increase the speed for pc upgrade your RAM and check with manuals how much Ram do they support
Apartfrom that increasing the graphic card is good option but do check nowa days nvidia is offering built in RAM on graphic card

Can I change RAM for COMPAQ- LAPTOP C301TU of 1.66 GHz; 256 MB; 60 GB to improve processing speed of Laptop. Date of purchase 24.12.06


upgrading your ram will not increase your processing speed. You can increase it but with your current setup my first recommendation would be to purchase a new computer, even if you upgrade you won't be happy in the near future with its performance.

Im trying to fix up my wife's Dell Inspiron B130 instead of buying a new computer. what is the best processor, and video card upgrade i can do?


You don't want to upgrade the cpu. As for the video card it can't be changed as its build into the laptop motherboard.

I would highly recommend that you instead upgrade the ram memory on the laptop since it will give you a bigger performance increase than a new cpu or video card.

The machine only has 256MB of ram, get atleast 512MB or 1024 /1gb of ram and it will work much better.
