The 2.8 is a good processor and you won't be able to tell much if any difference if you upgrade to the 3.0. Upgrade the memory to 1g, this will make a huge difference. You're welcome.

Try re-install the operating system . If windows xp you wanted, try using the first/SP1.
Most of all older machine with low spec,mostly slow . but not that slow if choose the right system operation. i suggest try install windows 2000 for better performance.

Can Windows 7 be installed on X05? I get ACPI incompatible BIOS and have updated to last known one. Please help!


The only issue i can see is if your your ram has not been updated since leaving the factory, you will notice from the tables W7 requires a min of 1GIG and your machine leaves the factory with 256mb(dependant on country possible) so check your ram. I run windows 7 on 2GB and its great, your machine will take 2GB. The Samsung X05 was released 2004 and the NVIDIA Geforce 4 should be fine. i would point out drivers and compatability but windows 7 so far is really good but driver support is crucial
hope this helps

Here is the requirements for Windows 7
Windows 7 minimum specs
  • 1GHz CPU
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 16GB of drive space
  • DirectX 9-capable graphics card or integrated chip (true of most releases 2002 and after)

I have a Emachines 740 with an Intel Pentium 4 1.60ghz, what options do i have to upgrade the CPU to speed it up and what is the maximum ram i can install? Any help would br great. Thanks


It would be better if you just leave the CPU upgrade, but focus more on upgrading the RAM to get a higher speed.
You should be able to upgrade it to 4GIG (on the very high side though) but I would suggest that you should stay at 3GIG.
Hope this helps you out.
Best of luck

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

I just bought a. Ibm R40 from ebay. Any upgrades I can do to it?


It looks like you're going to top out at 1GB of ram according to crucial.com

1GB would definitely improve the speed of that machine...
