hp 4320t

HP 4320T
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Ok, so i picked up this 4320T at a yardsale as the gentleman bought it used and found out it had a different type of system (embedded OS) so he sold it for a dirt cheap $20....... i had the same reaction when i started it and tried to load windows 7 on it..... hard drive was a whopping 4gb SSD and i know nothing about embedded systems. Ya, that got yanked out and replaced with a 240gb SSD, loaded it up with 4gb of ram, this is a litle powerhouse, i went to crucial and found out the board will take 8gb of ram so that will be here friday (yes i know the max spec says 4gb i even found a couple of units for sale that have 8gb loaded and are running).

 

My question is now i have found a few threads of some changing out the CPU on these 4320T for an i3 and some even the i5. is this possible. the socket is a 989 rPGA, would the bios even be compatible. I know its pretty hard to tweak a laptop but for $20 what can happen but experience. Any info would be great.

 

FYI, I had no issues getting the drivers for this to run windows 7,

i got the lan driver and let windows 7 update all day long, i had to locate the touchpad driver but its up and working now everything else either intel or microsoft and im a little happy camper for $20, the 8gb DDR3 12800 of ram coming was only $45 so i know if it doesnt accept it i can sell it and get the money out of it. Im just curious if anybody has had any luck loading a i3 or i5

this is just in case somebody else is looking to upgrade their HP 4320t as i have, i did my research. found the chipset onboard (Socket 989 rPGA, HM57 chipset) and did a cpu compatible with chipset...... this little thing is humming. great little find. So here are my upgrades on this

Intel Core i5 CPU M 560 @ 2.67GHz, 

DDR3 4gb 12800

SanDisk Ultra II 240GB SSD

Bluetooth module

 

Enjoy,

thanks bro. really a great help for me.... are there any compatible core i series processors you tried? i also joined these forum and ask one of the xperts here and he said i can upgrade upto 8gb of ram and i cannot upgrade my processor.. but i was surprised that it was a lie.. omg thanks for the answer i am also using a windows 7 professional sp1 64 bit. bro by the way is your OS support 64 bits? then maybe you can have a 8gb ram for your laptop. i will do my xperiments to.... need to find g1 series of processors.... kudos
