Your problem is either the memory or the Graphics Card. The DV6000 series was one that had tons of problems with the Nvidia Graphics Card. Oh, since you switched motherboards, did you put the cpu in from the old motherboard and did you apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste between the Heat Sink and CPU?

I got an aspire 4520 running on amd turion 64x2 processor and found that the processor is faulty. Can i replace the processor and where can i purchase the processor as i came to known its quit expensive.


You can replace the CPU if the new one is compatable with the computer.
Basically get the same CPU from a site like
  • newegg
  • ebay
then take the laptop apart and discharge yourselve after taking out the power supply and battery.
Make sure to apply new thermal compound to the CPU prior to starting the laptop back up.
Hope this helps

HP Compaq Presario V6048CL Overheating


take a look into bios and see if the the there is a shut down at certain temp is set ..to be sure ..just restore to factory defaults ...but the best thing is to take a look and remove the settings if there is a temperature limit on ..cpu temp...its risky ..but I always let it without limit and it was ok ...

Inspiron 1501 cpu upgrade problem


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.

Sony Vaio VGN CR-220E


Haha!

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.

CPU Upgrade-Which Sockel?


Here is some information may be useful to you. Intel processors Socket 1 169 pins 486 SX/DX Socket 2 238 pins 486 SX/DX/DX2 Socket 3 237 pins 486 SX/DX/DX2/DX4 Socket 6 235 pins 486 DX4 Socket 4 273 pins Pentium 60 en 66MHz Socket 5 320 pins Pentium 75 t/m 200MHz Socket 7 321 pins Pentium, AMD K6/K6-2/K6-3, Cyrix M1/M2 Socket 8 387 pins Pentium Pro 150 - 200MHz Slot 1 242 pins PII, PIII en Celeron Slot 2 330 pins PII Xeon en P III Xeon Socket 370 370 pins PIII, Celeron, Cyrix III Socket 423/478 423/478 pins Pentium4 Socket 603 603 pins Pentium4 Xeon PAC418 418 pins Intel Itanium PAC611 611 pins Intel Itanium 2 AMD processors Slot A 242 pins Athlon Socket A 453 pins Athlon, Athlon XP, Athlon MP and Duron Socket 754 754 pins AMD Athlon 64 Socket 940 940 pins AMD Opteron Conclusion: You can not upgrade beacuse Armada M700 has a pentium III processor with 370 pins. So the Socket 478 pinned pentium is not suitable. Advise: Try to exchange it with a new laptop or buy a used laptop for suitabl configuration
