Re: Notebook (Laptop) Upgrade FAQ

Hello,

 

Can you help me find which processors my notebook (BIOS) supports so that I can upgrade from my slow single core Sempron?

 

My laptop Details:

 

Compaq Presario CQ60-419WM

P/N: NV243UA#ABA

AMD Semprom SI-42 2.1GHz

Windows Vista Home Basic 32-Bit

 

CPU-Z info:

 

Manufac.: Wistron

Model: 303C  /   08.86

Chipset: Nvidia / GeForce 8200M  / Rev A2

Southbridge: Nvidia / ID075E

 

Bios

Brand: Hewlett-Packard

Version: F.54

 

I emailed HP Support but was told that they did not have a list of compatible processors for my model at this time.  Please, any details or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Download and run CPU-Z to provide me with current CPU and chipset information please. Take a look at the post after yours.

Sure. This link is to the support manuals for your laptop.  Look in the Maintenence and Service guide. In the Illustrated parts catalog --> sequential part listing for the entire list of supported, compatible processors for your AMD chipset motherboard. You can install an AMD Turion Ultra Dual-Core 35W ZM-86 2.40GHZ processor as an upgrade.

Here is a link to the  HP Maintenence and service manual for your notebook. Take a look in the illustrated parts catalog--> sequential part number listing. Look in the sectio for AMD chipset based motherboard not the Intel chipset. Your laptop can take up o an AMD Turion Ultra Dual-Core ZM-80 2.1 Ghz processor. That is quite a nice bump in performance from the single core Semprom.

Re: Notebook (Laptop) Upgrade FAQ

Hey my name is Antonio Quinones and I'm currently using a Dv6 - 1259dx. I was wondering if it was possible that I could upgrade my video card to ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 4600. I'm a gamer, but I tend to lag on my laptop due to the factory video card I'm using lacks performance. Relpy when you get a chance.

I will need more information on your laptop. Use ALT+CTRL and tap the S key to invoke product specific information. Please post all of the information as a quote to the message. Upgrading laptop(notebook) video is only possible if...your laptop has an 1) mini PCI express 2) has an MXM interface there are a few more recent possibilities. It all depends on your laptop configuration. Generally only the very recent more high end laptops have upgrade possibilities
