Ok my note book has an amd 64 3400+ in a 939 socket can this be up graded ?
does anyone know?
Chances are the CPU is soldered to the motherboard. If you can take it apart without destroying it you can check and see though.
I have opened a massive amount of notebooks, and none had their cpu soldier on...the only ones is the one with a cyrix or a transmeta.
KTR is correct then. I've never owned a laptop so I've never taken one apart, obviously I collected some false information somewhere.
I have some older tough books theirs are solidered p2 and p3 And I was mistaken mines a socket 754 looks like 3700 + is it thats not much more
I suppose we're both right then. Probably the only way to tell then is find some technical data on your specific model or take it apart and see.
Thats probably the best that socket can do in a notebook, check link here.
um think u can get a t50 or something (turion dual core) for 754 and use it, its the best 754 chip u can get.
other then that the 4000+ newark is a great chip.
u just need to update the books bios first, but any laptop with 754 can take a turion chip from my exp, the dual cores may need a bios update to be recognized properly by the lappy.
The other cores available for the 754 mobile socket are here;

But the 3700 he has is the fastest at 2.4ghz.
newark is 2.4 with 1mb cache i think, also is 90nm not 130.
the dual core turion for 754 is hard to find but is the best 754 chip you can get today.
Can't find a Newark for socket 754, No X2 core's for socket 754!!(Search of AMD.Com)
Yeah, the CPU is generally removeable. The gfx card on most laptops (excluding the Dell XPS series) are soldered on and not user replaceable.
ml-44 is the highest @ 2.4ghz single core...
while the tl-62 is the highest @ 2.2ghz dual core...but i cant seem to locate and 64...so the next in line is the tl-60...
they arent nesserly listed on the specs site, mainly because the newark never was a retail chip AFIK, but the egg had them for a long time, most expencive 754 chip ever made(newark)
try froogle if you dont like fleabay
Can't argue with that, !!
Often a new HDD can make a big performance difference. So can extra RAM. Both are easy upgrades and might stop you happy and keep you from going bonkers.
You're going to find the upgrades too expensive for the change in performance. I'd go with bonkers, hdd and ram are cheaper to upgrade and give a better bang-for-buck performance boost.
faster hdd seems to do the higher bottleneck on most laptops, because majority uses the 4200 or 5400rpm hdds...possible by switching to 7200 would be faster...
the highest performing hdd would be a 100gb 7200rpm..
acctualy they have 120 and 160gb 7200rpm drives now
and one company had a 15k rpm 1.8in drive(bet that sucker got hot as hell!!!)
hmmm...i cant seem to find any...
egg had some 120-160gb lappy drives a while back, duno how limmited the quintity where tho, they where hitchi branded i think, try pricewatch or froogle, newegg dosnt alwase have a huge slection of top of the line laptop upgrades, probbly because they are a LOW volume item
none...i have never seen any 7200 hdds above 100gb.
