HP NX7400 CPU upgrade ???

Hi there,

 

I'm interested in replacing my CPU with a stronge one...

Currently I have a Core Duo T2300 1.66 GHz processor...

 

Is it possible to replace it with a Core 2 Duo processor??

 

They both have the same socket and the newer laptops

have the Core 2 Duo processor installed...

 

My specs:

 

Intel Core Duo T2300 (1.66)

1.5 GB DDR2 RAM

Chipset i945GM

Mobile Intel GMA 950

The answer is yes. You will need to update the BIOS to F.0E (27 Aug 2008) , which adds support for Core 2 Duo processors.

Gabor,

 

Read down the list of enhancements and fixes for the bios update.  Look at the F.0B notes.

Hi,

 

The T7000 series supported but the question is that the nx7400 supports the 800Mhz FSB Intel T7x00 CPUs?

This cannot be answered by Intel Smiley Happy

Re: HP NX7400 CPU upgrade ???

Hi,

 

I tried to change the T2250 Core duo CPU to a T5780 Core 2 Duo but it not fit! They have different "leg" shape. According to your comments is it impossible, it must fit to housing. How is this differential possible?

I took some pictures from the CPU-s:

 

 

And this is the CPU bracket:
