I have acer aspire 4736z, can I upgrade the processor to 3.2 Ghz?

Please note that CPU upgrades in notebooks/laptops/netbooks are highly problematic because they depend on often uncertain motherboard specifications (different notebook models bearing the same series number in your question can have different internal and external specification and be based on different motherboards).

The most serious problem you face is that CPU upgrades in laptops/notebooks/netbooks inevitably require near complete disassembly and the correct reassembly of the computer. Inevitably, this type of work is best done by an experienced professional, trained for and capable of performing a warrantied repair. Understandably, the associated labor costs will be on the high side.

Also, upgrading the CPU requires the user to first risk expenditure on an item that cannot be returned to the seller or supplier if later found to be incompatible but could still be a potentially expensive replacement product, without being absolutely certain that is compatible with the motherboard for which it is intended.

So you will need to do extensive research on the specification of the precise motherboard of the precise model of your notebook. To do this, you will need the full, long, specific model number plus also the Serial Number (S/N) and Part Number (P/N) of the computer that are usually printed on a label underneath the computer. From these, you should obtain the P/N of the motherboard, then navigate to the support and product information pages of the motherboard manufacturer's website to verify the CPU compatibility specifications of the motherboard and then proceed from there.

Intel Pentium Mobile processor T4200 (1 MB L2 cache, 2 GHz, 800 MHz FSB, 35 W), or T3400 (1 MB L2 Cache, 2.16 GHz, 667 MHz FSB, 35 W), supporting Intel 64 architecture


Your notebook features the above Central Processing Unit (CPU) in its standard specification, according to Acer. This CPU is commonly referred to as a Dual Core / Intel Pentium M / 2.2GHz / 64 Bit Processor. This type and Model of Processor is outdated and the upgrade options available to you are limited.

The indications are that your best course of action would be to back up any important data stored on this notebook's Hard Disk Drive (HDD), restore the notebook to Factory Settings, sell it on eBay or CraigsList or any similar website popular, in your geographical location, for the buying and selling of Used Consumer Goods and then put any sale income raised towards a new, state-of-the-art notebook capable of performing the function(s) in which the current notebook is disappointing you and steering you towards radical thoughts such as CPU upgrades.

At the very least, consider several or all of the far easier, far cheaper and far less labor-intensive and labor-expensive upgrade options to improve the power, speed and performance of this notebook before contemplating a CPU Upgrade, such as, a Maximum Capacity RAM Upgrade, an Operating System (O/S) Upgrade, upgrading to a higher performance, higher Spin Speed and/or higher capacity HDD or newer technology Solid State Drive (SSD).

Your full notebook specification and CPU Upgrade Options can be found on the support pages of the official Acer and Intel websites below:

What can I do to make my notebook faster? Thanks.

Hello Sir/maam, most notebook are usually upgradeable, there are several ways to speed up the performance:
  • replace or upgrade to a higher existing memory, the upgrade usually increases the performance to about 10%.
  • always defragand check for bad sectors on your hard drive every month.
  • do not load softwares that are not necessary or softwares that you may not use regularly.
  • run a virus scan program regularly.

Upgrade this notebook

Hi,
Yes you can upgrade that notebook.

The notebook is sold with 1GB DDR SDRAM which is upgradable to 2GB RAM, 2 slots 1x1GB in each slot.

The hard drive is usually 120GB SATA which you can put any drive in up to 320GB or 500GB (if you can get on of that size)

The processor is a core duo. It is upgradable but i wouldn't bother with that as 1.6GHz is more than sufficient.


Regards.

Notebook processor too slow, Need upgrade

As far as laptops go, there is not much room for upgrades as far as CPUs go, you can try contacting Compaq to see if they have an upgrade for the processor but that is a long shot.

The other thing you can do it can your local Computer Repair / Maintenance store and see if they do upgrades for laptops.

Satellite L20 video card upgrade

Most notebooks either have their video processor on the motherboard, or have a mini-card that is specific to the particular notebook model. Generally, they are not upgradable (unlike desktop PCs). You MIGHT be able to share more notebook memory with the video system. It's a setting in the BIOS setup, if it's even available.

Cpu upgrade

Upgrading the CPU in a notebook is a bad idea.

Even if you get a compatible CPU, a faster processor means more heat, and notebooks are not design to handle it. You would risk major damage.

If you want to make it faster, try increasing the memory.


Good luck!
