UPGRADE of CPU and graphics card in HP Pavillion 9000?


The HP Pavilion dv97072ea Notebook PC?

Nope.
Doesn't use the MXM technology, with using a separate graphics ->adapter card.
The graphics chipset (GPU) is soldered directly to the motherboard. (GPU on a small circuit board, that is)
It's Integrated Graphics,

http://www.ascendtech.us/hp-434659-001-dv9000-laptop-motherboard_i_mbhp434659001lm.aspx

Scroll the page down to the larger photos.

The Nvidia GeForce GO 7600 mobile graphics chipset, is the darker OD green circuit board. (Generally speaking)
In the views you are looking at the TOP of the motherboard.

You see the white rectangular Processor socket, with the square hole in the middle.
Next to it is a green square circuit board, and next to that is the darker, Olive Drab green square circuit board, that is the Nvidia GeForce GO 7600 graphics chipset.
{Circuit board and GPU, is referred to now as the graphics chipset.
That is why I stated - Generally speaking, above }

[GPU,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU ]

You can see the Nvidia GeForce GO7600T chipset, and circuit board, more clearly here,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/100-new-nVIDIA-GeForce-GF-GO7600T-N-B1-GPU-BGA-IC-Chipset-with-Balls-/190698089722?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c667decfa

It's mounted to the motherboard with a BGA surface mount.
Ball Grid Array.

To explain the Ball Grid Array surface mount, simply;

In the photo of the chipset in the Ebay link above, you are looking at a green square circuit board, with an Nvidia 7600 GO, mobile graphics chipset, in the middle. You are looking at a TOP view.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_Go_7_.28Go_7xxx.29_series

The GPU ->Nvidia GeForce GO 7600, is mounted to the green circuit board.
The bottom of the green circuit board has Solder Balls.

The Solder Balls take the place of Contact Pins.
(Contact pins, such as on the bottom of an Intel Pentium 4 processor, that uses a Socket 478 processor socket)

On the motherboard are matching Copper Pads.
(The copper pads are coated with a gold plating)

The Nvidia graphics chipset is set down on the motherboard, with the Solder Balls lining up on the matching Copper Pads.
Heat is then applied at a specific temperature, and length of time.

This action makes the solder balls melt, and solders the Nvidia GeForce GO 7600 to the copper pads.
(Which in turn solders it to the motherboard)

This demonstration of a BGA Rework Station, shows you more about the above technique,

http://www.ersa.com/art-ir-pl-650-346-1472.html

Go down towards the bottom of the page, and click on the Red -
Take a few minutes to view the IR 650 demo video. (5 minutes)

Just for edification;
If it indeed did use the MXM technology, and a graphics adapter card for a laptop, that is based on the Nvidia GeForce GO7600 GPU, it would look like this, and plug into an interface, (Connector) on the motherboard,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/nVIDIA-GeForce-Go7600-Go7600-N-A2-G73M-DD2-256MB-MXM-II-VGA-Card-35G1P5310-10-/330758557353?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item4d02bf0ea9

(There is also a model with 128MB of graphics memory, besides the 256MB model shown above)

More in a Comment. Don't give up on increasing graphics 'power', just yet............................

Acer Aspire M5641 has a black screen, Power fan is on, CPU fan is on, hard drive has several initial clicking sounds but motor is not running; and i replace a new cmos-bios battery. But nothing...


if by pushing on the power button the machine does not immediately shut down, and you have to hold it down for 5 or 10 seconds, this would indicate that the system is fully functional. the problem would be , your monitor or integrated graphics (NVIDIA GeForce 7100 / nForce 630i) are bad. the graphics can be resolved by adding a graphics card to your system for a reasonable price that varies from 25.00 to 85.00 dollars. the proper card would be a PCI Express video graphics card. here is a link that will provide you with many different options suitable to your need. i suggest you take into consideration if you are a gamer , that you aquire one equal too or greater than 512 self supported ram. 512 will by far exceed the factory video capabilities, enabling a much higher quality video resolution and clearer video /gaming viewing.

PC is frozen when I press WIN-key


Do you see the Hard Disk Light ON during the time your computer is frozen? If that is the case there maybe an issue with the Hard Disk Controller.

When you installed a new version of Windows XP, did you format your entire Hard disk? (Just to make sure that your computer doesn't have a viral infection?)

Also, is it that the computer freezes when you press Alt+Enter ...or is it like the computer freezes after you press the Windows Key and then Alt+Enter?

Have you tried the Alt+Tab Combination?
