Re: Notebook (Laptop) Upgrade FAQ

Does dv4t-1400 support quad core Q9000?

It has a PM45 chipset which is the same chipset used for Q9000.

The Q9000 does not use a chipset. It has circuitry on the die. It is a processor. Laptop motherboards use chipsets such as the P45 mobile express.

 

Sorry to bear bad news. The best you can do with the chipset and supported processors in your notebook is a duo core processor. Quads are not supported by the custom HP BIOS.

Re: Notebook (Laptop) Upgrade FAQ

IN th DV3510nr notebook service manual, the T9800 processor is listed as supported. It is a Penryn processor, unlike the Penryn 3M processor which is currently in the notebook. Could I now assume that all Penryn dual core processors are then supported? Like the P9XXX series?

Hi,

Here is your support page.

 

It looks as if the only guaranteed to work upgrades fall within the following list for your laptop. It looks like a glass ceiling of 2.2Ghz.

 

T7500 (2.2-GHz, 4-MB L2 cache,

800-MHz FSB)

√ √ √

T7300 (2.0-GHz, 4-MB L2 cache,

800-MHz FSB)

√ √ √

T7100 (1.8-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache,

800-MHz FSB)

√ √ √

T5250e (1.5-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache,

667-MHz FSB)

√ √ √

T2300 (1.6-GHz, L2 cache, 533-

MHz FSB)

√ √ √

TJ85 (1.67-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache,

667-MHz FSB)

 

 

regards,

erico

Sorry to have to tell you, but the answer is no. If the processor is not in the supported CPU list there is no guarantee that the BIOS has support for it. That means buying one and installing it will be a crapshoot and you could end up with snake eyes ( losing $$$).
