Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 PC Notebook
I am currently repairing an Inspiron 1501 that had a power blow out and now that I have completed the board level repairs and can boot the machine, I would like to replace the MK processor with a TL-64.
From my research the highest processor that Dell shipped these machines with was the AMD Turion TL-60 and the only difference between the TL-60 and 64 is the clock cycle.
Does anyone see any reason why I could not go to a TL-64? The bios is the latest bios for that year so it should be just a plug and play

The first thought I had was...
(back in the old days when we OVER-CLOCKED =
lots of excess HEAT ( promptly dismissed )).
You are talking about a "MANUFACTURED" chip ...
I'm guessing you have already done the
"pin-out" (battery, ground... bus /bus, bit by bit compatibility)
Sounds like a great idea...
The only caution I have it to keep track of which steps you have done so you can METHODICALLY BACK OUT should
your experiment NOT be such a GRAND IDEA.
always wear wrist straps (ESD: anti-static (of course)).
ELECTRO-Static DISCHARGE wristband (see below).
I would really love to hear of your results ...

Did you check the AMD site for compatibility? If they are, you could have a bad chip, it could have been mishandled or inserted incorrectly. Visual inspection first for burns, contaminated or bent conductors. Static discharge will kill cpus.

Go to Control Panel/Power Options and check the settings. It's probably set to shut off after a period of time.

The Turion is more of a mobile processor meant for laptops since it uses less power while the athlon is for desktops and uses a bit more power. The Turion might edge out the Athlon on performance but will beat the pants off it in power consumption. The sempron is a low-cost processor meant for entry level desktops. So, to answer your question it goes Turion, Athlon, Sempron.
Hope this helps, if so please leave some positive feedback. Thanks.

Before attempting to factory restore your laptop make sure you back up any data you need to the storage drive and remove all USB (or other) connections.
