Some notebooks are come with cpu that is not for mobile use but for desktop and hence sold at a cheaper price. As a result, the notebook is very hot. How can one tell if any cpu on the notebook is a mobile or desktop one?

In general a mobile CPU is appended by the letter m. e.g. Intels new iCore series have desktop processors named ix-xxx whereas their mobile versions are labelled ix-xxxm.
The best way for you to check your CPU model would be to either visit the HP homepage, search for your specific model and view the spec. Or you could go into your start menu, select the Run box, then type 'dxdiag' without the quotes, and press ok. This will bring up hardware information for your machine. Sometimes the run box is disabled from the start menu.
Hope this helps,

    IIRC AMD have separate models for mobile processors so you will not find a mobile version of a desktop CPU. So take your AMD model number found by any of the methods already posted and search in google. On the first page should be a link to AMDs website with a full spec of that CPU, there it will have all the details you require.
    Hope this helps,

You can easily find out by checking one of two places in windows. Look at system information utility under acessories/system tools or by opening up control panel system. The type of cpu is show right on the first page on both of those.

If your version of windows does not have those then you can look at the model number of your laptop. This will be on a sticker on the bottom. It will show the DV6000Z and under it will have another number like PSG-XXXX-XXX ( I don't remember the correct sequence for the DZ6000, have one somewhere but don't recall) Then you need to go to HP and search for that number. It should take you to either the support page or the specs page. There will be a listing showing what differant options came with your laptop including the cpu.

What processor and where can I get one?

This 'notebook' was shipped with an AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-58 CPU, See There are three variants. This CPU is "probably upgradeable" according to the FAQ in the pages linked to from my ref.
The HP webpage for this model is Compaq Presario V6642EM Notebook PC Product Information and the specifications (linked to from that page) are here Compaq Presario V6642EM Media Center Notebook PC Product Specifications
The maintenance & service Guide might tell you which, if any, other CPUs can be fitted.
HP say follow the following steps to determine which CPUs are available for your PC HP and Compaq Desktop PCs Upgrading or Replacing the Processor but I don't hold out much hope as to determining the m/b type.

Fan runs at very high speed


OK, firstly, if the CPU fan runs at high revolutions, it means that the CPU is very hot. The more heat on the CPU, the faster the fan will run in order to keep the CPU at the safe temp.

Hence, you will have to open up the case and have a look if the CPU fan housing is clogged with dust particles, this is usually the most common cause for the CPU to overheat. If you can see that there is a lot of use stuck to the fan, you will need to blow if off, i use a compressed air cylinder, it works great.

If there is no dust particles visible, you will need to put some new thermal paste on the CPU chip itself.

Try the first option, let me know what happens.

Kind regards

New cpu fan has 3 prong connecter, old has 4. what is,or does the 4th blue wire have to be connected?

You can connect the CPU fan as normal but it can only run at one speed and voltage hence only having 3 wires.
Your other CPU fan which had 4 wire was able to run at 2 different voltages and speeds and are mainly used to keep the noise down and run quietly.

Sony Vaio VGN CR-220E


I had such dreams too with one of my old Vaio. I really wanted to upgrade the processor and graphic chipset. Turns out that the latter is impossible (it was soldered to the motherboard - it wasn't a graphics card, just an all-in-one chip), as for the processor I was able to take it out but I ran into several problems:
1) vaio added electronic components to the motherboard that made higher CPU speeds unachievable even if the motherboard's cipset (VIA) was able to do that.
2) the cpu maker (AMD in my case) kept telling me that their mobile cpu were custom designed for that specific laptop, so new cpu would be incompatible. Also mobile CPUs are, apparently, only sold to laptop makers, unlike OEMs... (eBay but at ur own risk!).
3) When buying a new CPU, u need to check factors such as the number of pins (mobile cpu are much smaller), voltage, current, wattage and heat dissipation (very important, ur current heat sink was designed for ur current cpu).

But maybe things have changed now. In my case, I could only upgrade the RAM and the hard-drive to larger and faster versions, and the difference was quite significant difference. Faster booting and better internet experience.
