Question about Computer Processors

3 Answers

Upgrading processor I'll confess to not knowing much about computers but was wondering about the possibility of upgrading my processor. Some programmes that I run on the computer uses up so much of the processors capabilities that I can't even open a word document without encountering difficulties. Ideally I would love to be able to upgrade to a dual core so would like to know if this is possible, and if not what would be the best suitable upgrade for me to look at. The specification for my processor given by the CPU-Z programme is AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2000+

CrazyerChris is correct. 3200+ is the max you can get, although your motherboard says it only supports up to 3000+.

Although you will notice a small increase in performance, I would also recommend upgrading your motherboard to accomodate a dual core processor and DDR2 ram. That will give you the best increase for your money since socket A are pretty much phased out.

Take a look at this link

if that looks like your motherboard than the best upgrade your motherboard can support is Athlon XP 3200+ processor.

if you want to upgrade to the dual core your gonna need to upgrade the motherboard as well

Upgrade of microprocessor


I reckon this upgrade is not possible because the m/b hardware doesn't support the SL7E6. It's not listed amongst the processors available for that model (highest speed one listed at 3.2GHz), and the specs imply that L2 cache must be 512MB or less. (This answer is not definitive)

I want to upgrade my procesor to faster procesor.


Upgrading processor is not likely a practical solution; find out the motherboard manufacturer and contact their site for more information. As to upgrading the motherboard, you'll have to know what kind/size of board your system will require. If you don't have lots of experience, this process is very risky.

Frankly, the cheapest way to upgrade your computer is to buy a used and working product with Windows XP already installed. Go to http://craigslist.com, select your city, and search for a brand name you trust. I've bought DOZENS of used computers very cheap that way (I'm writing this on a $2,200 Dell Latitude D620 I bought fiv months old for $500, who needed the cash!)

Intel Pentium II Processor Upgrade


No, this highest the P-II went to was either 400 or 450 Mhz. Upgrading a thinkpad CPU may be difficult. Considering prices on used laptops now, I wouldn't think it would be worthwhile, either.

Upgrading my laptop processor


When you're running an average load, start Task Manager and view the performance tab. If the amount of free RAM is low, then definately upgrade your RAM. Plus, nowadays it's really cheap to upgrade ram.
As far as upgrading your processor, that can get a little tricky and expensive.
Also, what do you mainly use your computer for, and what operating system do you use?
