Question about Gateway 4025GZ Notebook

1 Answer

Supported Processors Looking for a list of supported processors for this laptop. CPUZ lists the chipset as i855GM/i855GME and socket 479, specifically uFCPGA I believe. Does this mean any processor using such a slot will work?

    Thanks for the response. I did end up finding another forum with very detailed information posted on this laptop. It appears that it supports just about any Pentium M (socket 479). I love newegg, but given this is a cheap laptop I had to go with ebay for a new proc ($20.50 shipped :P)

Not always the mother board will have a limit on how fast a processor it can handle and whether or not it can handle a dual core. my advice is to go and download siw (system information for windows). this will give you a lot more info about your laptop. it will tell you what *********** board supports and lots more. i would say that if your computer is currently a single core than don't upgrade to a dual core because it probably won't be supported. then once you get the info go check out newegg.com it will save you lots of money verses going to a retal store.

Cant find upgrade info on cpu for this


http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?cc=uk&lc=en&product=4320950

Product information> Product specifications> HP G72-B02SA Notebook PC Product Specifications>

Intel Pentium P6100 CPU (Processor),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_microprocessors#.22Arrandale.22_.2832_nm.29

Uses the Socket G1 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_G1

"The current CPUs to use this package are the Core i7-6x0M series, the Core i5-4x0M series, the Core i5-5x0M series, the Core i3-3x0M series, and finally the Pentium P6x00 series and Celeron P4x00 series which were released on March 28, 2010. However, not all of these are available for Socket G1, as some of them are only available in a BGA package."

http://www.cpu-world.com/Sockets/Socket%20G1%20%28rPGA988A%29.html

Motherboard Chipset not stated on HP Support.

I forgot. This is HP UK Support.
People in the UK are the best, but the UK support information for anything -> BITES!

The Product Number is XF133EA.
Let's try it that way,

https://h10057.www1.hp.com/ecomcat/hpcatalog/specs/provisioner/05/XF133EA.htm

Processor subheading -
Chipset: Intel HM55 chipset

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#LGA_1156

LGA 1156 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1156

LGA 1156 processor support list,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1156#Supported_processors

I'll just go back to the G1 processor socket CPU support list.
(CPU = Processor)
Much easier(?)

There is no Front Side Bus. (FSB)
These processors use QPI.
Quick Path Interconnect,

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

Therefore look at the Ram Memory support, and the Voltage range, used by the Intel Pentium P6100; to compare to processors that may be supported; and add to that the processor MUST use a Socket G1 processor socket.

1) Ram Memory support
2) Voltage Range
3) Socket G1 processor socket

Pentium P6100 ->
Supports DDR3 Sdram ram memory at 1066MegaHertz.
It is the 1066MHz to keep in mind here.

Voltage range; .0775 to 1.4 Volts (DC)

Okay, now compare to list of supported Processors, on the CPU-World / Socket G1 article,

http://www.cpu-world.com/Sockets/Socket%20G1%20%28rPGA988A%29.html

"Socket G1, or rPGA988A, is a socket for first generation of Nehalem-based mobile microprocessors.

Me: ->FIRST generation of NEHALEM based MOBILE processors.

NOTE* ->
The socket was introduced in September 2009 along with the ->first three Core i7-branded mobile CPUs, and eventually it was used for Core i5, Core i3, mobile Pentium and mobile Celeron families.

Me: In order of technology, or crudely can be stated as, "which is better", the order is;

Intel Celeron
Intel Pentium
Intel Core i3
Intel Core i5
,plus the first three Intel Core i7 processors, that used the Socket G1 processor socket.


NOTE*->
The rPGA988A works with dual- and quad-core chips, built on 45nm and 32nm technologies, and operating at frequencies up to 2.8 GHz.

Me:-> Core technology based on 32NanoMeter, or 45nm.
Up To a 2.8GigaHertz frequency rate. ('Speed')

NOTE*->
The socket supports DDR3 memory with data rates up to 1333 Mhz, and Direct Media Interface. Socket G1 was superceded by socket G2."

Me: Stick with 1066MHz ram memory, and Intel processors that support it.

Moving on..........
Processors supported, going from Core i7 down.

[NOTE* Dealing with a laptop/netbook processor is different than a desktop processor.

You are looking for 'processing power', but also power saving features.
Power saving as in how much power the processor will use.
Mobile processor = Laptop/Netbook processor.
The less power it uses, the better for a Laptop/Netbook.

The battery will last longer.

Therefore it really is up to you.
Balance of processor 'power', and saving battery power ]

Core i7 - 6x0M

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i7_microprocessors#.22Arrandale.22_.2832_nm.29

Only 2 use the G1 CPU socket.
Intel Core i7- 620M, and Intel Core i7 - 640M

The rest use the BGA surface mount that has 1288 solder balls.
Explained at end of solution, about the BGA surface mount.

Notice they are Arrandale Core. Also the Arrandale Core is based on the 32nm architecture.
Notice they support DDR3 Sdram that is 1066MHz.

Notice ALSO that it is -> TWO DDR3 Sdram ram memory modules.

THAT, is what you want.
NOT an Intel Core i processor that needs THREE ram memory modules, ('Stick'), in order to operate.
Long dissertation, will include detailed info at end of solution.

You actually need to know the old technology, and compare to the newer Intel Core i technology, to fully understand.

CPU World processor support list also includes Intel Core i7, model 920XM, and Intel Core i7, model 940XM processors,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i7_microprocessors#.22Clarksfield.22_.2845_nm.29

To me this = No.
DDR3 Sdram ram memory, but 1333MHz frequency rate. ('Speed')
Also voltage range is .0650 to 1.4 Volts.
MAY work, MAY NOT.

BIOS may recognize the processor, and make changes accordingly.
Then again it may not.
BIOS upgrade? I'll pass. Too easy to scre-w up, and also miscommunicate proper procedure.

Stopping for a second;
The Core i technology will 'slap a Pentium around'
It's like comparing the 'grocery getter car' to a fuel dragster.

Core i3 and Core i5 technology has less 'processor power', than a comparable Core i7, but the Core i3, and Core i5 were also designed to use less power. Therefore (Supposedly) more battery life.

The Intel Pentium P6100 is a dual core processor. Two processor cores.

http://ark.intel.com/products/50175

But the Core i7 is essentially a quad core processor.
Four processor cores.
This is because it uses the old HT technology.

Hypertransport Technology.
Two REAL processor cores, and if it is needed Two VIRTUAL processor cores.

Intel Core i7, model 620M; for an example,

http://ark.intel.com/products/43560/Intel-Core-i7-620M-Processor-4M-Cache-2_66-GHz

2.0GHz maximum frequency rate for the Intel Pentium P6100.
2.26GHz for the Intel Core i7-620M

Nothing to write home to Mom about, as far as using 2 processor cores.
But when the 2 virtual processor cores of the i7 kick in, that's when the Pentium P6100 would get lost in the dust.

Instead of having two processor cores operating at 2.0GigaHertz, (Pentium P6100), you have FOUR processor cores operating at 2.66GHz.

Crude example?
Two men digging a ditch. Take them out, and replace with four men.
Which scenario will get the job done faster?

HOWEVER, surfing the internet? Watching a video?
Only 1 or 2 cores are going to kick in.
Playing an intensive game, or running an intensive program?
THEN all 4 cores kick in, and kick sum boot-y.

Lot of prattle I posted. Hope you can make some sense of it.


Ha! I just found this. Here is the 'definitive' CPU Support list.
It is listed in the Compaq Presario CQ72 Notebook PC and HP G72 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide. (Service Manual, really),

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02641840.pdf

Page 11:
"Intel Core i7-620M
Intel Core i5-540M

Can I upgrade my processor to i5 for my acer 4738z pentium dual core laptop


In general it is possible to upgrade the processor of a laptop, the socket has to be the same. A faster processor may or may not produce more heat than your current one, the heat output is mainly distinguished by the watts the cpu uses.

It is though not very practical to change the CPU. Same socket means that you are bound to processors of the same era, you cannot get a state of the art architecture processor (like i3, i5, i7) with the same socket your P6200 has.

Next point is that it is not that easy to change the processor inside of a laptop, the parts are very tightly screwed into the casing making it hard to do anything in there. additionally you are likely to destroy something or unintentionally wont be able to fit all the pieces in place afterwards.

Looking at the list of pentium processors at wikipedia. It says the P6200 uses a Socket G1, as you can see in that list there are only four CPUs using this socket, and only one that would count as better as yours. So clearly: No, not worth it.

Actually there are some i7's out using the same socket and drawing only 35W, but I wont guarantee that it actually would work, and I doubt that the laptops hardware is made to support this CPU.

It is possible, but I would not recommend it.

I am wanting to upgrade the cpu to a faster


You dont need to know your southbridge info or anything like that, you just need to know the socket type for the processor. If they make a processor for the socket type, then you can assume it is compatible.

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

PROCESSOR HISTORY AND INFORMATION
Below is a listing of all known processor manufacturers made to date. In the below list is information about major processors listed by the date manufactured as well as a brief description of the technology and advances of each of the processors.
INTEL 4004 - Microprocessor introduced in 1970 with the speed of 108KHz was the worlds first microprocessor.
INTEL 8080 - Microprocessor introduced in 1974 running at the speed of 2 MHz was used in the world's first PC, the Altair.
INTEL 8086 (Code Name: P1)- Microprocessor first introduced in 1976. The 80086 had a 16-bit architecture that allowed it to work with 16-bit binary numbers and pass them through a 16-bit data bus. The 8086 was available in clock speeds of 5MHz, 8MHz, and 10MHz.
MOTOROLA 68000 - Microprocessor released in 1979 was later chosen by Apple for the Macintosh computer.
INTEL 8087 - Floating-point math compressor compliant with the 8086 / 8080 microprocessor family.
INTEL 8088 - Microprocessor released in 1979. The 8088 was the first Processor used in the original IBM PC and XT personal computers because it was less expensive than the 8086 microprocessor because of the availability of less expensive eight-bit data bus supporting chips made it the microprocessor for the IBM PC. The 8088 was available in speeds from 4.77 MHz and 8MHz.and used the 16-bit architecture allowing it to work internally with 16-digit numbers. The 8088 had the ability of addressing up to 1MB of RAM.
INTEL 80286 (Code Name: P2) - Microprocessor introduced by Intel in 1982 which commonly is referred to as the 286 processor. The 286 processor supported 16-bit architecture, supported virtual memory, and was available in clock speeds of 8MHz, 10MHz, and 12MHz. The 286 was around 20 times faster than the predecessor 8088.
INTEL 80287 - A compliant processor to the 286, a floating-point math coprocessor. Specially designed 286 chips have the capability of placing the optional 80287 processor on top of it, giving the computer a math coprocessor.
INTEL 80386DX (Code Name: P3) - Microprocessor manufactured in 1985 was the next generation of Intel processors. The 80386DX included the math compressor, unlike the 80386SX, and still featured the 32-bit architecture and built-in multitasking. The chip was available in clock speeds of 16MHz, 20MHz, 25MHz, and 33MHz.
SPARC - Released in 1987 is short for Scaleable Processor ARChiture by Sun - used RISC (Reduced Instruction Set) to speed up processing.
INTEL 80486DX (Code Name: P4) - Microprocessor released April 10th 1989. The 486DX featured a built-in memory cache and 32-bit architecture. It had more than three times the computing power of the 386DX and was available in clock speeds of 25MHz, 33MHz, and 50MHz.
INTEL 80386SX - Microprocessor introduced in 1989 was the next generation of Intel processors. The 80386SX lacked a math coprocessor but still featured the 32-bit architecture and built-in multitasking. The chip was available in clock speeds of 16MHz, 20MHz, 25MHz, and 33MHz.

Good Luck, Please dont forget to Rate/Thank You.
