Preferred Solution: How can you tell what CPU upgrade your laptop mobo can support?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

BomberAF:

From my experience, I have not seen laptops that the cpu was not soldered onto the mb. But I could be wrong but most laptops require a heck of a lot of tools and experience to take them apart and put in a new cpu.

In the long run, it might be less aggrivation to just buy a new laptop as they are getting cheaper and cheaper.
You might want to let us know why you want to change the cpu?

Hi, I am Ehsanul Haque from Bangladesh. Recently, I have purchased HP Pavilion 15-AU017TX laptop equipped with Core i5 6200U processor, Nvidia 940 MX graphics and 4 GB RAM. It's really great and I am really happy with it. I am planning to buy an additional 4 GB RAM for the laptop. But the cusomer support do not want to upgrade it. They say that it will void the warranty.  I have seen on the other posts that the RAM upgrade will not cause any issue with the warranty.

Hi: According to the service manual for your notebook at the link below, memory upgrades are supposed to be done by an authorized HP service center (see chapter 6 for the parts that should be replaced by an authorized service center). http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05228250 Since this is a peer to peer forum, no one here is authorized to discuss the HP warranty terms and conditions. I suggest you contact HP technical support in Bangladesh or India for further assistance with your question regarding replacing the memory without voiding the warranty. https://www.facebook.com/HPbangladesh You may also want to wait until the 1 year warranty period is over and then do the job yourself if you think you can follow the procedure in the manual to replace the memory.

Hello guys, my younger brother got a computer a while ago its a Packard Bell iStart 2311, the thing is its starting to run really slowly as it only has 1gb ram with 256mb being used by the graphics card. The thing is I do not know if it supports 2gb in each slot or only 1gb.

I can get 2x2gb for a very good price but not sure if each slot takes 2gb.

The motherboard according the PB website is a MCP61PM-AM . Even if someone can tell me the real name of it or who manufactures it. I have tried google searches but came back with nothing but people wanting to overclock there systems.

Hey everyone!
I want to know if G.SKILL [ RipjawsX ] F3-12800CL10S-8GBXL(8Gx1) / F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL(8Gx2) RAM supports MSI Z77 MPOWER Motherboard

I searched in both support list and I didn't find, but I think it supports each other because the RAM is DDR3-1600 and this Motherboard support DDR3-1600, but I want to be sure!

NOTE: I want also to know if there is different between buying 2x8G or 1x8G (If I want to buy each one from different store with the same name) or there is no different?

NOTE 2: I will buy Intel Core i7-3770k CPU for my Mobo

Thanks!
addas

A:Need to know the RAM that support the Mobo that I will buy!

First, I think that having 16GB of ram is completely useless. Second, if you are going with Ripjaws, you are mostly an amateur gamer, but I am sorry if I'm being stereotypical. If I'm right, I am sure you don't do lots of multitasking, or video and sound editing, making 16gb of ram just a waste, Two 4GB sticks, or 4 2gb sticks would do wonder with dual channel.

Third, if your motherboard RAM compatibility list does not show the ram you are buying, don't risk it. Ask someone directly from the company, or buy ram that shows as supported. Ripjaws don't do anything that other RAM sticks cannot do and will show any difference.

However if you are just going for looks, just doublecheck with an MSI CSA to see if it would be compatible with the board even if it doesn't show in the list.

My GigaByte Mobo (see system spec) was purchased in 2010. I'm considering buying an SSD for the system and I want to be sure my hardware supports it using AHCI mode. When AHCI is enabled I see the following verbiage displayed during the hardware boot cycle before the OS begins to load:
Serial ATA AHCI BIOS, Version iSrc 1.20E
Copyright (c) 2003-2008 Intel Corporation
** This version supports only Hard Disk and CDROM drives **
The part that worries me is the last sentence where it says "...supports only Hard Disk and CDROM drives"
Does this mean the mobo does not support an SSD?

A:Mobo SSD Support?

I have a Gigabyte mobo purchased in 2009 that shows the same message during boot.

It works flawlessly with a Samsung 830 SSD in AHCI mode, running Windows 7.

Not 100% guaranteed, but I think you will not have any problems running an SSD in AHCI mode.

And that RAM is supported by your motherboard but it is a higher speed than your current ram, something like this would do the trick. With your currency I believe the price for this would be Rs 1879.30.

Hello SF members,

I see today uEFI is very popular, a lot of people use it...
I have ASUS P8H61-M LX2 (it have modern BIOS utility, etc. ).

So, does my mobo support uEFI?

And what is pros and cons of uEFI? I found that I need GPT formated HDD and GPT isn't recommend for HDD who have less than 2.2TB.

If my mobo support it, does I need anything other?

Trinty

A:Does my mobo support uEFI?

uefi are the modern kinds of BIOS. They are better than older generation BIOS and their more obvious feature is that they have fancy graphics, they don't look like old DOS stuff. Most other things are "better" but from a customer point of view, there isn't a lot to talk about. It supports newer standards like GPT, and other modern stuff that wasn't possible with older generations of BIOS.

As for what you are saying about GPT, afaik UEFI can boot from GPT drives, but work fine with normal (MBT) drives as well. Who said that you need to use only GPT?

According to the product specs here, your BIOS is uefi already.

In any case, you can do nothing about it, as it's the manufacturer that decides what BIOS each board will have.

Hey guys,

This is kind of embarrassing. Despite being a very seasoned PC user I have never ever used a SATA HDD! Always IDE. My old machine I custom built back in 2003 had been retired a few years ago due to a crashed hard drive. I was able to score a 500GB Western Digital WD5002ABYS but I was surprised that it was SATA when installing it because I didn't have a cable to connect it with nor do I see one on the motherboard. So basically I have no experience installing this.

Is SATA better than IDE somehow? I would just like a summary of the differences and more importantly some guidance on what I need to purchase. I tried researching my Shuttle AK31S2E9 mobo to see if it was even compatible and if I would need one of those cables or the entire adapter. (Needless to say I didn't find much info available on it). I heard these adapters slow it down which implies IDE is better than SATA to me? Most of the ones available on Amazon had bad reviews.

How do I install this without any drawbacks? Do I need a new mobo or is there an easy way to make it work and continue to use this mobo that's still in fine working order.

I have an Asus A7V8X-X mobo in one of my systems. Right now it has 2x256 MB PC3200 modules in it. I’m thinking about adding some to increase total capacity. I’ve looked through the mobo manual and can’t make sense of something. Here is what is said about the memory capabilities of my mobo:

“The motherboard has three DDR sockets that support up to 3 GB unbuffered non-ECC PC3200/2700/2100/1600 DDR DIMMs.”

And in another place it says this:

“DDR DIMM sockets. These three 184-pin DIMM sockets support up to 3 gigs system memory using unbuffered non-ECC PC2100/1600 DDR DIMMs. (Note: PC2700 maximum to 4 banks only. PC3200 maximum to 2 banks only.”

I’m confused. I do understand that the mobo will support up to 3 GB using PC2100/1600 memory. What confuses me is the ability of the mobo to support PC2700 and PC3200 memory. Right now I have 512 MB of PC3200 memory in my system (2x256 MB chips). Is this information saying that if I add another PC3200 stick of RAM the system won’t recognize? If so, can you tell if it says that if I add a stick of PC2700 memory it will or will not recognize it? I’m a bit confused as you can see.

How to boot from USB-HDD even when your mobo dosent support it?

Basically i want to install an OS onto my ipod mini 4gb but my mobo does not support booting from a USB HDD, although it supports USB FDD and USB ZIP booting.

I was just wondering if there is a kind of "boot manager" like maybe on a bootable CD that will allow you to boot from a USB HDD (in my case my ipod mini 4gb).

If such i thing exists, which im pretty sure it does i just cant find it - could you please post the link to where i can download this "boot manager"

Thank you!
 

A:Hot to boot from USB-HDD even when your mobo dosent support it?

Nope.. No such thing. It would be a gigantic task to put together something that would know about all USB controllers in existence and would successfully mask all the relevant BIOS interrupts to make the USB HD to look like a real hard drive..

A BIOS update is your only hope.

Hi,

I think that my MOBO can support this processor, but I just wanted to check.

"

I also wondered how much is the maximum RAM my MOBO can support (can I put in 2GB sticks in or just 4x1GB).

"
- Dual-channel DDR2 800/667/533
"


All help greatly appriciated in question #1 or #2.
 

A:Will my MOBO support a new processor and differnet RAM?

generally it is better just to stick with 2 sticks of ram. So go with 2 x 2gb if you want 4gb. (This is overkill for most applications). 2gb should be plenty.

You should not have any CPU upgrade issues, but you may require a BIOS update. Read: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic75555.html

now I think this is because i have 512 megabytes in there currently.. since it's listing the graphic interface i currently have in there rather than what it supports (yeah i know it sucks..). but i want to know if it will support a 1024 stick of ddr, cause it's actually cheaper and means i can upgrade more later.

the whole cpuz scan is here

thanks!

I paid for 3 years of support and accidental damage in home support. Together, it cost around $400 on my new XPS laptop. Afew months after I bought XPS 15 9560, I pulled out the charging cord, and a round piece of plastic that was inside the port came out too.
I called technical support at 5 pm EST, and received someone in Southern India. I gave them my information, and they confirmed that I had service. They then fought with me for 15 minutes, telling me I could NOT have any in home service. The representative, who kept calling me by my first name (no respect)  said I had to send my laptop to a depot in Texas for them to identify the issue. Finally, after I insisted, the representative, S. Sirya Kiran, FINALLY allowed me to get in home support IF I sent him photos of the damage. I did. Finally, I received an email telling me to select a date for service, which I did, 12/18/17 between 9 am and 1:00 pm .
I took time off and waited. No one came by 11:30, or called. So I contacted World Wide Tech Services. They then told me they didn't have enough techs to handle my area, so they were NOT coming. I asked why no one gave me the courtesy of a phone call and they had no answer. They said a new company, Unisys, would contact me. (I doubt they ever will.)
Is this what Dell gives people for their money as far as support and accidental damage in home service for $400? This is an outrage.

Newegg has some ram I'd like to order, it's listed as:
DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)Click to expand...

My motherboard is listed as supporting:
DDR3 1866(OC)*/1333/1066
* To reach DDR3 1866MHz or above, you must install two memory modules and install them in the DDR3_3 and DDR3_4 memory sockets.Click to expand...

Will my motherboard be able to handle the DDR 1600? I thought that maybe it would since it falls between DDR 1866 and DDR 1333. Am I right to think that?

Unfortunately we do not have crystal balls at our disposal & need more information on your motherboard before answering that question.

I have a new Aopen AX63pro motherboard (ATX form factor) being shipped from California and wonder if my old AT power supply and case will work with the new board. If I need a new supply, is 300 watts "better" than 235w or 200w? If I need a new case, any thoughts on what's the best value? Does an ATX power supply fit into some AT cases (if there is such a thing) or is a dedicated ATX case/power supply needed?

Thanks to anyone taking time to offer an opinion.
 

A:Will old AT power supply and case support new ATX mobo?

you will most likely need a new case and power supply. Some AT boards will take either a AT or ATX power supply but I have not seen an ATX board that will do both. There may be some exceptions but it is a good bet that you will need to buy some new equipment.

Hello,
Recently I've dig into my basement and found an old computer (about 2008). It has an LGA 775 and there's a Pentium D currently installed inside. Problem is, I want to upgrade, to a better CPU, and I fortunately have one.however, once I do, the Computer fails to start. Even the mobo Is failing to Post. After that, I took out the better CPU ( which was a core 2 quad by the way) and replaced it with the old one. Funny thing is, it runs normally again. I have no idea why. I have tried the Core 2 Quad on another different computer which I borrowed from a friend. It runs fine...

Heres the barebone specs of the old computer I'm trying to upgrade.

Pentium D 3.4Ghz
[Updated] (Mobo make and model included in the picture attached)
2 GB (DDR2) ram
HDD 160GB (With Ubuntu)
Aztec Earth Watts 500W powersupply

Greatly appreciated if someone can help me.
Thanks : D

Hey guys and gals,

I bought this mobo back in July and have not used it yet. It's the A1 680ISLI and I am not sure if It supports the new PCI 2.0 interface. Any suggestions/Answers???

THX
 

A:Does the EVGA 680ISLI MOBO support the 8800GT

The 8800GT should be a PCI-e x16 interface, so as long as the mobo has that then you'll be fine.

Basically everything you can get these days has PCI-e x16 on it so it will most likely be ok

If you're not sure, google for pictures and compare what you have on the board.

Hey,

Can someone help me with this?
I have this motherboard: http://www.foxconnchannel.com/ProductDetail.aspx?T=Motherboard&U=en-us0000107

Does this motherboard support a Crucial RAM DDR2 667Mhz?
I think the max of this motherboard is 533 mhz..

RAM: Crucial 1 GB DDR2-667 Kit
(CT2KIT6464AA667) http://www.crucial.com/store/partspecs.aspx?IMODULE=CT2KIT6464AA667

Also, will this RAM improve my pc's performance?
I now have 2 of the 4 RAM slots used. (They are DDR, not DDR2... my motherboard can handle 2*DDR and 2*DDR2)
RamSlot1: 512MB PC3200 (200MHz) Corsair VS512MB400
RamSlot3: 256MB PC3200 (200MHz) Transcend Information
Slot 2 and 4 are for DDR2 and are empty now.

Also, what will faster RAM do to your computer? And what will more RAM do to your computer? Which of the two is more important?

Example: My computer is fast enough for me, but internet browsing is bad... especially when loading big pages and when scrolling. (it laggs)... My internet connection is fine though (500Mbps Glasfiber).. Now what is important for internet browsing -> more RAM or faster RAM?)

Thanks in advance,

Hi

Got a Biostar Tseries 945P Chipset here. Apaprently Core2 is only supported after the bios has been flashed. Question, will the pc boot when I use a unsupported cpu, or will I have to use a supported cpu, flash and then put the new one in?

I put a e2140 in the pc and it's not booting.... So I am hoping its just the flash requirement, and not a busted mobo.

Thanks

guys,
i have Intel Core 2 4500 CPU. Socket type is LGA775. Have 4 gb DDR 2 (4 sticks 1 gb each). I need a no-frill NON-overclocking simple motherboard for it. Right now I have gigabyte P-35 DS3L but the bios support is no good. I cannot use a USB keyboard to power on the computer. I don't want overclocking feature at all - just a solid mobo with a really good and working bios and preferrably a micro-atx.

A:need stable quality mobo with good bios support

I'd probably look to the Intel brand in that situation.

Here's a link to a bunch of micro ATX Intel Socket 775 boards at New Egg:

Newegg.com - Computer Hardware,Motherboards,Intel Motherboards,Intel,LGA 775,Micro ATX

BIOS support going forward could be tricky because socket 775 is on the way out. You'd have to dig into BIOS features to see if they support USB keyboard power on.

I had a socket 775 Intel board for 4 years that had no issues at all, but I can't recall if it had that feature.

So, I'm looking into the MSI P67A-GD65 (B3) motherboard for a new build. I was looking at the specs and it says it supports DDR3 at 1066/1333/1600/2133 MHz, but that it would need to be OC'd to get up to either the 1600/2133 MHz speeds. Basically I'm wondering if it's worth it to OC for the 1600 speed, and how exactly to do it.


Here are the specs of the build I'm looking at:
Mobo: MSI P67A-GD65 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel
CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz LGA 1155 95W
PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W Modular High Performance PS
Graphics:MSI R6850 Cyclone PE Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16
HD: HITACHI Deskstar 1.5TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"

So the main questions are:
a. is it worth it to go for the 1600 speed memory over the 1333?
b. what do I need to mess with to get the memory running at the full 1600?
