Hi,

Nothing much you can do with the speed but you can of course always add more memory. Additionally, you may want to streamline the startup programs to the barest minimum.

As to overheating, try a matching docking station with additional fan/blower.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Pros * cons of intel core i5 processor & intel celeron processor


Celeron processors are always stripped down versions of their costlier brethren. They are less expensive and do not have the speed of their counterparts.

Problems downloading software and the processor speed is unusably slow particularly when attempting to access the Internet.


That may call for a processor upgrade from the likely Core2 duo or Celeron processor. May I suggest an intel atom or a core I-series CPU?

How do i find the specs for gateway model#mx6214


This is Gateway Support > Gateway MX6214 Notebook PC > Main Support page,

http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/Q106/BladeC/1009028nv.shtml

Click on Specifications in the list.
Now go back to the main page, and click on Components.

With the information on the two pages, you know now;

A) Processor:
Intel Celeron M 420. (Model 420)

The Pentium-M based Celeron M 420, (Yonah-1024 Core), uses a Socket M processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Celeron_microprocessors#.22Yonah-1024.22_.2865_nm.29

Has a 533MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (533MHz FSB)
Uses 1.0 to 1.3 Volts (DC)

B) Processor Socket:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_M

C) Motherboard Chipset:
Intel 940GML,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core.2FCore_2_mobile_chipsets

You see what is supported by the motherboard chipset, Intel 940GML.
Processors supported (Official);
Intel Celeron M, Intel Core Solo, and Intel Pentium Dual Core.

An Intel Celeron processor is less than a comparable Pentium processor.
This is because it has less Cache. Usually around half of a Pentium based processor.

Processor Cache:
A small memory area for the Processor. Operates at the same Frequency Rate as the processor, therefore the First memory area a processor accesses.

( Frequency Rate = 'Speed'.
Speed; The term Intel used a long time ago, to help consumers compare 'power', and has stuck.

Example:
The Intel Celeron M model 420 mobile processor, can operate Up To a frequency rate of 1.6GigaHertz, or also stated as 1600MegaHertz.
{1.6GHz/1600MHz}

Mega = Approximately 1 Million in computer terms
Giga = Approximately 1 Billion in computer terms
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second.

The Intel Celeron M 420 can operate UP TO 1.6 Billion Cycles per Second )

Crude example of Cache;
You are writing a thesis, and you need additional information.
Where is it? Down in the basement, no light, under the stairs, in a box, last book on the bottom.

Down the stairs you go flashlight in hand. Book dug out, back upstairs, and open the book to the page/s you need.
Need more info? Yep. Back down in the basement you go.

OR,
You tap a few keys on the keyboard, for the computer in front of you, and have your information in seconds.

Less Cache? = Basement scenario
More cache? = Computer scenario

Pentium based processors have more Cache, than a comparable Celeron based processor.

You can also see the amount of Ram Memory support, and what type of Ram Memory is supported.

DDR2 Sdram at either 400MegaHertz, or 533MHz.

(PC2-3200, and PC2-4200, respectively, AND is SO-DIMM style for laptops. PC2-4200 is also known as PC2-4300. Just depends on the ram manufacturer)

2GigaByte maximum amount. (2GB)

D) Graphics:
Integrated Graphics. (Not a graphics card)
Intel GMA 950,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_GMA#GMA_950

E) LCD screen:
15.4 Inch Widescreen, WXGA, and it's based on the Thin Film Transistor technology. (TFT)

(Always, always, always, look at the manufacturer name, and model number, { Manufacturer ID} on the back of the LCD screen. Make SURE you are getting THE LCD screen you need )

Service Manual? (Free),

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-gateway

Go to the line that starts with Gateway 400. (400 in blue)
Drop down to the second line, scroll across, and click on the blue -
MX6200.
(The Gateway MX6214 Notebook PC is part of the MX6200 series )

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name, (MX6200), it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

It does run slowly


What kind of processor does it use, and what programs do you run on it. Some programs require a minimum processor speed.
If the processor speed is low, you might consider uninstalling some of the heavy programs that you run.
You might also consider upgrading the RAM if the size is low. That would help a bit, but the most important factor in PC speed is processor speed, therefore, minimize the number of programs you run if the speed is low.

Hope that was helpful?
Goodluck.

Will the asus 1000hd support the intel T5250 dual core processor because the 353 celeron is ****


Usually the net books are what one would called Wireless internet laptops not noted for power.
The net books users don't need a lot of power to view and user the internet.
the processor is about the speed of a Dell laptop was 7 or 8 years ago a 1.6 GB
which is just fast enough but the CPU is hard soldered to the mother board and not upgradable. A celeron processor is about all your gonna get here.

I want to upgrade my hpdv1000 pentium M processor whats the maximum upgrade allowed for this? i have upgraded it to 2gb ram from 512mb and 250gb hd from 60gb and its doin fine.


You should be able to upgrade the CPU, since it seems that the DV1000's motherboard uses a socket CPU design. But, obviously, HP would rather have you choose the CPU that you want from the beginning and stick with it.
The first thing to do is to check HP website to see what other configurations were/are sold for your model. If they sell it with faster CPUs then you can upgrade to one of them...

PLEASE NOTE:
In order for a particular processor to be compatible with a particular laptop:
(1) the processor must be physically compatible with the laptop socket, in your case I thing you have a Soket 479 processor
(2) the laptop chipset must support the processor.
(3) the chipset front side bus speed must match the processor front side bus speed, in your case 400Mhz.
(4) the laptop BIOS must support the processor.

So I listed here processors with FSB at 400Mhz, I gues that DV1000 as a 855GM Motherboard that supports only 400Mhz with Socket 479

Pentium M

Varies by specifications
Processor / Speed
Intel Celeron mobile processor 530/540/550 (1 MB L2 cache, 1.73/1.86/2 GHz, 533 MHz FSB), supporting Intel 64 architecture
if you have a 2 Ghz processor installed, you will have to replace the motherboard to go with a faster CPU.. which will be spendy..
Hope this helps

Hi, I have HP dv4000 model, Intel Pentium 1.60 GHz processors, Can I upgrade the processor? And what is the maximum upgrade for the processor? Regards, for more details and features...


According to the service manual, these are the processors your notebook will handle:

Part#
Intel Pentium M 2.13-GHz 396700-001
Intel Pentium M 2.00-GHz 396699-001
Intel Pentium M 1.86-GHz 393327-001
Intel Pentium M 1.73-GHz 383474-001
Intel Pentium M 1.60-GHz 383473-001 and 396698-001

Intel Celeron M 1.50-GHz 383471-001
Intel Celeron M 1.40-GHz 396697-001
Intel Celeron M 1.30-GHz 389036-001

So it looks like the Pentium 2.13GHZ is the top one.

Here is a link to the service manual for reference: This is on page 5-24.

Thanks fro using Fixya. A Fixya rating would be most appreciated.

Cpu upgrade


Your computer has one of these options:
spacer.gif level2_arrow.gif Intel® Celeron® Processor 560
(1MB L2 cache, 2.13GHz, 533MHz FSB)
or
Intel® Celeron® Processor 550
(1MB L2 cache, 2.0GHz, 533MHz FSB)
or
Intel® Celeron® Processor 540
(1MB L2 cache, 1.86GHz, 533MHz FS
or
Intel® Celeron® Dual-Core Processor E1400
(512KB shared L2 Cache, 2.0GHz, 800MHz FSB)
or
Intel® Celeron® Dual-Core Processor T1400
(512KB shared L2 Cache, 1.73GHz, 533MHz FSB) spacer.gif

Check the features with Acer first and see if your motherboard model support that speed processor.
