If new processor supports your old motherboard then you will upgrade system with your old motherboard.

If its not supported to new mother board then you have to buy new motherboard to upgrade your system.

Thanks.
Happy to help you.

Cpu upgrade


A) http://www.fixya.com/support/t18040647-cpu_upgrade

B) http://www.fixya.com/support/t18040647-cpu_upgrade

(Last time I looked, this was the world's largest product support website, and there ARE technicians from AROUND the world; on here!!!!!!!! Do we count as an 'IT techie'? ........Lol!)

In all three of your posts, not once has the laptop manufacturer name, and model number been stated.

Processor (CPU) support depends on;

A) What processor socket is on the motherboard?

B) What motherboard chipset does the motherboard use?

C) What is the processor that is installed now?

With these parameters known, THEN you can think about CPU (Processor) upgrade.

1) CPU (Processor) has to FIT, the processor socket being used.
THIS, is also IF the motherboard HAS a processor socket; and is NOT soldered directly to the motherboard.

2) The motherboard chipset supports the Processor (CPU)
It has to be known if the motherboard chipset will support, the CPU (Processor) that you want to upgrade to.

For older computers the motherboard chipset consists of;
A) Northbridge chip
2) Southbridge chip

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

With this technology the Northbridge chip, of the motherboard chipset; is what determines Processor (CPU) support.
Newer technology, such as used per se by the Intel Core i processors, does NOT use a Northbridge chip.

3) Looking at the existing Processor now, you can determine;

A) Voltage Range: What voltage range does the exisiting Processor use now?
Does the upgrade Processor also fall within this Voltage Range?

B) Core technology, and architecture:
Example:
Existing Processor uses the Conroe Core technology, and the 90nm architecture. (NanoMeter)
Does the upgrade Processor also use the same Core technology, and architecture?

If not is there a BIOS upgrade available?
(The motherboard chipset also comes into play again, here)

Enough of this generic prattle.........
Post the laptop manufacturer name, and model number.
Then I, or someone else can give you the facts; and not generic information.

Post back in a Comment.

HP Pavilion A200n (DF209A#ABA) PC Desktop best upgrades


Your motherboard is limited by it's 400 fsb. The fastest CPU that will work in it is a 2.8Ghz 400fsb northwood chip. You can upgrade the memory to 1GB of pc2100 ddr ram. As for changing out the motherboard, don't do it. The front panel connections will likely never correct correctly with a new motherboard.

I have acer aspire 4736z, can I upgrade the processor to 3.2 Ghz?


Please note that CPU upgrades in notebooks/laptops/netbooks are highly problematic because they depend on often uncertain motherboard specifications (different notebook models bearing the same series number in your question can have different internal and external specification and be based on different motherboards).

The most serious problem you face is that CPU upgrades in laptops/notebooks/netbooks inevitably require near complete disassembly and the correct reassembly of the computer. Inevitably, this type of work is best done by an experienced professional, trained for and capable of performing a warrantied repair. Understandably, the associated labor costs will be on the high side.

Also, upgrading the CPU requires the user to first risk expenditure on an item that cannot be returned to the seller or supplier if later found to be incompatible but could still be a potentially expensive replacement product, without being absolutely certain that is compatible with the motherboard for which it is intended.

So you will need to do extensive research on the specification of the precise motherboard of the precise model of your notebook. To do this, you will need the full, long, specific model number plus also the Serial Number (S/N) and Part Number (P/N) of the computer that are usually printed on a label underneath the computer. From these, you should obtain the P/N of the motherboard, then navigate to the support and product information pages of the motherboard manufacturer's website to verify the CPU compatibility specifications of the motherboard and then proceed from there.

Intel Pentium Mobile processor T4200 (1 MB L2 cache, 2 GHz, 800 MHz FSB, 35 W), or T3400 (1 MB L2 Cache, 2.16 GHz, 667 MHz FSB, 35 W), supporting Intel 64 architecture


Your notebook features the above Central Processing Unit (CPU) in its standard specification, according to Acer. This CPU is commonly referred to as a Dual Core / Intel Pentium M / 2.2GHz / 64 Bit Processor. This type and Model of Processor is outdated and the upgrade options available to you are limited.

The indications are that your best course of action would be to back up any important data stored on this notebook's Hard Disk Drive (HDD), restore the notebook to Factory Settings, sell it on eBay or CraigsList or any similar website popular, in your geographical location, for the buying and selling of Used Consumer Goods and then put any sale income raised towards a new, state-of-the-art notebook capable of performing the function(s) in which the current notebook is disappointing you and steering you towards radical thoughts such as CPU upgrades.

At the very least, consider several or all of the far easier, far cheaper and far less labor-intensive and labor-expensive upgrade options to improve the power, speed and performance of this notebook before contemplating a CPU Upgrade, such as, a Maximum Capacity RAM Upgrade, an Operating System (O/S) Upgrade, upgrading to a higher performance, higher Spin Speed and/or higher capacity HDD or newer technology Solid State Drive (SSD).

Your full notebook specification and CPU Upgrade Options can be found on the support pages of the official Acer and Intel websites below:

Like to replace my processor which is AMD Duron 900MHz to Motherboard Gigabyte 7VM333M-RZ. Which current processors are compatible with this board? Please advise. I want a current fast processor.


Hi, As far as I can see, this motherboard is very old, and the faster processor you could get would be around 1.8 ghz, single core. Here's the list of supported processors:
http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-Gigabyte/7VM333M-RZ.html
What I would suggest is that you buy a motherboard/cpu combo, then you could get a quad core with a recent motherboard for less than 150-200$. Of course you'd have to be willing to change your motherboard, but unfortunately, you're not gonna get a good processor with your current motherboard, and computer parts (like Ram, hard drives, video cards) are going to cost more and more for their rarety, while they are less performant.
Best of luck to you!

Currently i am using desktop computer celeron 1.7 Ghz which i am thinking to replaced by a P4(2.8 or 3.06) processor on the same motherboard. Apparently there is a voltage difference between 2...


Hello,

If you motherboard will accept the P4 speed you want, you will NOT need to change anything. The board will automatically adjust the voltage when it sense the new cpu. I do recommend you upgrade your power supply that will support the voltage requirement. Most time when vendors build a pc with a low voltage cpu they usually use low voltage power supplies.

Check your motherboard specs, inparticular the voltage requirments and processor that are compatiable with your model board.

Good Luck.

Hello again, Upgrading CPU's


Your board supports socket AM2 CPUs the fastest of which is the AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ dual-core processor at 3.1 GHz.

Your motherboard does not accept socket AM3 CPUs.

Processor upgrade


Your CPU is tied into your motherboard. Only CPUs that are compatible with your motherboard will work. You can get your motherboard model from start>programs>system tools>system information. Once you have the model # then you can start searching for the CPU options. Good Luck.

Please rate this solution.
