  1. nothing to do with laptop, one way to up clock speed is get New latest Laptop with high CPU Clock Speed
  2. thnks, so ur telling me a faster processor will not make it faster?

  3. No, faster is absolute, .. Clock speed and size is issue, It's all depend balance system and like hardware, OS, driver and software and used for, also from other issue like temperature, age. .. Etc
  4. Laptops in general are tricky to upgrade processor-wise. Not all laptops support all chips in a given processor family. What is the model of the laptop, and what CPU does it currently have?

  6. The only one i know for sure that would work is a T3400, but that's not much of an upgrade, as it's only 160MHz faster than what you've got. As long as the BIOS supports it (and very likely would if you're running the lastest version), i'm very confident a Core 2 Duo T5850 should work in that system, and is the fastest Socket P 667FSB processor you can get. If you're interested, i'd check eBay, as you can usually score chips like that for $15 or so.
  7. thank you very much, is this basic plug n play or do i need to take it to a professional? will this upgrade be significant to my speed?

  8. This is NOT something the average person should be doing. Most laptops require quite a bit of disassembly to change a processor. The T3400 would not be much of an upgrade in your situation, and probably not even worth the hassle. The T5850 would be a descent upgrade. The problem you face is that your motherboard has a maximum of a 667 FSB, which limits how far you can upgrade.
  9. ok, well thnks for all your help! i think im going to hold off on this then.... you prob saved me alot of money and headaches!!
