Question about AMD Computer Processors

Processor compatability Do I have to get a special processor for a laptop, or are all processors the same?

    I have an S1 AMD Sempron 3200 ~ 1.6G and I think it may have been fried. My computer is stable when I have only windows installed but when I put on any Anti-virus software I get the blue screen treatment. I have run MEMtest86 on my computer and another with my RAM in and only my computer came up with errors. the HDD is OK (also checked) so now I'm hoping a new CPU will do the trick. If I'm going to buy a new CPU I would rather upgrade than go back to the sluggish Sempron. I'm told the Turion 64 x2 will fit. I guess I'm looking for a Turion 3200 so the frequencys match? Will the Athlon 3200 fit and what is the difference?

    Over to you guys and thanks for looking into it!

Processors have a matched frequency rating with the motherboard and memory. So, when replacing or upgrading the processor, the new processor will need to have the same frequency as the old one. If the processors use the same type of memory, ie... PC2100, then ther are most likely compatable, and the use of a processor that was made for or from the same make of laptop is always a good idea. Some processors are designed specifically for use in certain manufacturer's system configurations. For example; say you have a Dell Latitude C840 with a 1.8ghz processor and you want to upgrade to a 2.2ghz processor from a Dell Inpiron 8600, this will work. Both of these machines use the PC2100 memory and have a matched frequency rating of 266mhz, and the processors are made for use in Dell machines. If you would like to tell me exactly what you're wanting to do, maybe I can recomend a processor for you. Let me know.

SOURCE: compatible upgrade processor for intel pentium

The E5200 would be a nice upgrade. It retails on Newegg.com for 65-69.00 and usually has free shipping. And if you have a compatible motherboard and purchase a nice heatsink, it overclocks very nicely.

Hi,

Yes the board has an LGA775 Socket, which means the processor will suit the board you have.

If you are after cheap processors, ebay is great for used cheap processors.

Let me know if you need further help.

What processor?


Not all processors fit laptops. You shouldn't get a higher powered processor as you would then need to change the power supply as laptops are set to suit themselves.

Getting an intel may stop problems accoring.

Are they compatible?


Hi, your cpu currently in the machine should be a 754chipset, only way you would be able to put a core duo processor in the machine would be to replace the motherboard, cpu, and probably the memory.. to DDR2
