HP 1484 MOBO

Does anyone know if this mobo will support dual core? It's a laptop mobo. I have searched intel and there may be some dual core options, but I can't find anything on this board.

  1. The easiest thing to do is call HP customer support and ask them.
  2. yeah, their online live tech chat is useless. I talked to someone last night asking for my motherboard specs and here's what th dufus gives me:

    Product Name CQ62-219WM
    Product Number WQ778UA#ABA
    Microprocessor 2.2GHz Intel Celeron processor 900
    Microprocessor Cache 1MB Cache
    Memory 2GB
    Memory Max 8GB
    Video Graphics Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M
    Doesnt tell me anything about the board! I did however downgrade my bios from F.24 to F.16, F.16 says supports newer intel processors! Thats the best info I have gotten from HP, they suck. So I will take my chances and buy either a T6600 or T8100
  3. Make sure that what is in there is the same socket as you plan to install.
  4. Yeah, the T6600, 8100 are both Penryn socket P 478. So I will buy one and cross my fingers :o
  5. Confirmed by a person on an HP thread, I can go with T6600 and T6670 also can try the T8100
  6. Sounds great enjoy!
  7. Thanks, I know its not easy looking around for parts for laptops. Heh, have a good one.

    Hey did you give this a go? My laptop as the same board and i also want to upgrade my CPU, If you successfully managed to upgrade. It would be great if you could tell me what you manage to upgrade to and if theres a noticeable performance increase.

    Cheers.

  9. yes, I believe I put a T6670 in and she works like a charm. Good luck.
  10. Have you experienced any over heating problems? and was the CPU its self easy to replace?
    Thank you for you feed back.
    Helps alot.
  11. No heat problems because intels speed step technology doesnt use the whole cpu all the time. Once I got the laptop apart, it was as easy as replacing the cpu in your desktop. Find your laptops schematic that way u dont break it taking it apart.
  12. I'm having a similar issue with this. I have the same motherboard and very similar specs as to the above. My model # is WQ668UA#ABA and am considering an upgrade for the CPU. With the limited and almost non-existant information that HP has given me I don't know the limits the motherboard can handle. Can anyone give me a hand with this?
  13. Hp is garbage. They wont help! Whats ur current cpu model?
  14. Pentium(R) Dual-core T4500 @ 2.30ghz
  15. Here's the link, you can kinda research a little more. But it does look as if you can buy the T6670 as a replacement CPU.

    EDIT: If you can afford one I would get the T9500! Heres the comparison link: http://ark.intel.com/Compare.aspx?ids=33918,42109,

    EDIT: Heres the cpu on ebay: http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1311&_nkw=t9500+cpu&_sacat=See-All-Categories
  16. Thanks for the info. It does help a bit but still not sure what all the mobo will provide support for. To my understanding the mobo has to be able to support some of the same capabilities of the processor to use them. The T9500 does look like a good step up for the cpu.

    I received hp's "support," it was laughable indeed. When I resubmitted the question with deeper explanation, I got the specs on a different product. They then said they didn't have the capabilities to help me with any more detailed information and directed me to call the hp support #.
  17. Yeah. That's them lol. I wasn't sure what my mobo would support either, I would say you have a better chance of it working than not. Its kinda a crap shoot.
  18. nice lol
  19. I'm almost positive it should work for you.just remember when putting in the new cpu to use good high performance thermal compound. The only good thing is that when upgrading intel has speedstep which only uses what it needs from the cpu so it doesnt overheat in the laptop
  20. What about when playing games that's intensive on the cpu processing??? I've been playing Starcraft II with my current one but the usage of the cpu is extensive even on the lowest settings.
  21. What's the temps your hitting now
  22. Normal Usage
    HD0: 41*C
    TEMP1: 43*C
    Core 0: 38-40*C
    Core 1: 38-40*C
  23. Mid to high 50's during play.
  24. You should be good with the upgrade I would think. You can get up into the 70s with a laptop, I would just buy a really good laptop cooler and use good thermal compound.

    In my compaq cq-62 219wm and it is very easy to switch out the cpu. It took me only 15 min to get it open, in, and on. I put in a t6400 intel core 2 duo but I've found out that you can go up to a T9500 for sure. Just make sure you have yourself a good phillips head 0 magnetic screwdriver, a pretty good memory on where your screws all went and what you unplugged, some rubbing alcohol (to clean out the heat sink {91%}], some q-tips, and some thermal paste (to replace what you cleaned up and on the new cpu) . You will need a flat head screwdriver when you get to the socket to unlock it.

    Did you have to downgrade the Bios or use a specific Bios to get the CPU to run or no? My new CPU (T7300 that i got on ebay for 7 bucks) arrives tomorrow and i want to make sure that i can do any Bios tweaking prior to it.
  27. no, I just swapped to see if it would work and she did
