How to i get my amd turion 64 x2 tl-50 to factory reset?


You can reset your BIOS to factory default. There is an option there. Or you may only change the settings about CPU to the default or automatic.

Can I install a better CPU into my Toshiba Satellite P305D-S8834 17 1 Widescreen Notebook Computer then the AMD Turion X2 Processor RM-70 it came with?


Changing CPU is a serious change. When your unit was built the processor speed and type were written into the BIOS. When we change the CPU to a different type there is a chance that the BIOS will not recognize it and refuse to boot up. Also Windows was installed with the original CPU and a major change in hardware could mess up Windows.

I did some research and found this model comes with a 2.0-GHz AMD Turion X2 Dual-Core RM-70 CPU and 4GB of RAM. This is not the fastest CPU that can be put in a laptop but a very good one. (faster than mine)

I can guide you through the steps to replace it but my advice is stick with what you have until it breaks and buy a faster laptop. The upgrade won't gain you enough to justify the expense.

Hi. You need full model of product. You should find it on the bottom of the laptop somewhere.

AMD Turion 64x2 Processor Upgrade Problem


Yes it's the BIOS, which holds a list of supported CPUs (with the right min/max settings for Vcore, FSB, multiplier (or HyperTransport as it's called for AMD chips), etc.). When you put in a newer unrecognized CPU, it either runs at a failsafe (very slow) setting or won't boot at all.

The only solution is to flash a newer BIOS version which supports the CPU. I searched the Acer website and found the newest BIOS version 3315 (dated 2008-12, which is pretty new imho), which you can download (including the required flash software) here: http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/BIOS/BIOS/BIOS_3315.zip?acerid=633643256207419447&Step1=Notebook&Step2=Aspire&Step3=Aspire 5050&OS=V10&LC=nl&SC=EMEA_18

Perhaps you already have this BIOS version and I'm not sure wether your new CPU is supported by this BIOS, but you might give it a try.

Please note that flashing your BIOS might fail & brick the laptop and is at your own risk, but when following the instructions carefully, it's only a very small chance things go wrong. I've done it a dozen times without any problem ...
