A10: Overheating & upgrade CPU

1. my heating system, cooling fan seems worn out, looking for a replacement, please someone can help out me!
Please let me know where I can buy this replacement fan!

2. I'm looking for a laptop set to level, but do not knowing if my motherboard can support PM740 1.7? Someone at - he had the idea about it, please let me know, thank you very much!



As much as I know CPU upgrade is not possible because the processors used in laptops are connected to the motherboard using a process called TCP (tape carrier package). It is a method of permanent connection and is used in the interest of miniaturization and heat dissipation.

The components you can upgrade are modules of RAM or HARD drive with more capacity.

  • Upgrade CPU on Satellite Pro C660-219


    I wonder just to upgrade CPU on my laptop to get some perfomance.
    I did the upgrade of RAM to 8 gb and 64 bit Win7.
    Now, it's processor i3 - 370 M (3 m cache, 2.40 GHz).

    I'm sure I can go to i3 - 390 M (3 m Cache, 2.66 GHz) processor, but it will be useless IMO.
    It has same Cache and just a little bit faster CPU count:

    > I need someone to answer the question: can I ride this laptop an i5 or i7 without problem with compatibility with the motherboard?
    You should know that upgrades of processors are not supported by any laptop manufacturer. This means that no one can tell if a CPU would be fully compatible and cause no worries. These upgrades are own risk.

    You could read this statement from Toshiba about upgrades.
    [Is it possible to upgrade the CPU or GPU of a Toshiba laptop computer? | http://APS2.Toshiba-tro.de/KB0/TSB9401AX0001R01.htm]

    The point is that even the chipset which is part of the motherboard would support the new processor, BIOS would not fully compatible and the combination of BIOS and the new processor may cause new troubles.

    The camera seems to supports the INTEL HM55 chipset and to my knowledge, the Toshiba Satellite C660/C665/Pro C660 series is based on a Dual Core/Quad Core Processor (* Intel Arrandale processors *)

    So if you want to find a compatible CPU, you should check the processors owned by the family of processors Intel Arrandale.

    No, the graphics card can not be upgraded

    What you can do, it is memory and the upgrade of the HARD drive. This should be very easy and should cause no serious problems.

  • Qosmio X 770-116 - can I upgrade CPU i7

    Hi all

    I currently have a Qosmio X 770 - 116 Core i5-2410qm / 8 GB 500 GB 17.3 - tft Dvd Win 7 Azb

    Can I upgrade the processor to a core i7?
    If so, what is the name of the i7 processor?

    Thank you

    Jos Sallets, Belgium

    This Forum on NECK, we discussed several times the upgrade. For best performance, a lot of people want to upgrade CPU. Update CPU is not supported, and in particular cooling system, each laptop model is designed to work with certain hardware platform.

    In general the Qosmio laptops have the best material with excellent performance, so I put t know why you think the CPU upgrade. In my opinion, you should spend RAM and HARD drive. It is supported and can be done by the owner of the laptop without losing the warranty valid.

    Maximum RAM HDD Upgrade and upgrade with SSD and you will see the difference. You will be surprised with the speed of your laptop is.

    I ve do on my laptop. It works perfectly now. Think about all of this.

  • Upgrade CPU on Satellite P100-434

    Satellite P100-434 BIOS v 4.80 does support the Core2Duo T7500 Intel proccessor?

    I advance thank you

    For CPU upgrade, there are several different important things and not the BIOS only.

    Check it please this Toshiba document initially - http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB9401AX0001R01.htm

  • Satellite A300-1ED - upgrade CPU of PDC to C2D

    Hi all
    Small question. I still have six months toshiba warranty on my A300-1ED. laptop is very good. Never fail. But it lacks performance so I want to upgrade my PDC T2390 to some C2D processor.
    Tell me what model of C2D my A300-1ED runs (card mother and bios)? T7500? T5750? Frequency FSB? 667 or 800?

    Someone at - he do it before?

    Thanks for all the tips!


    First of all, you will lose the warranty if you would disassemble the laptop!
    This should be clear to you.

    Then there is no guarantee that your laptop would go well and stable after this upgrade the CPU.
    I m thinking about issues of compatibility between the processor and BIOS since the BIOS was pretested with the other processors.

    However, I have read some threads here on the CPU upgrade and some users do that
    Seems that some laptops run without any big problems after upgrade CPU, but I think it's not consistent for all series

    Perhaps this topic could be useful:

  • Upgrade CPU on Satellite C70 - A - 16 L

    Hello, first of all I apologize for my bad English hahaha.

    I have a Satellite C70 - A - 16 L with pemtium processor I want to change it to an i3, i5 or a i7, is it possible?

    Thank you

    Upgrade CPU on laptops is not supported. This means that no one will be able to tell if the new CPU would work and if the laptop would be stable after this upgrade.

    Primarily this unit seems to be new. In this case, the warranty is still valid. If you disassemble the notebook in order to remove the CPU, you will void the warranty.
    I put t think it's worth a try.

    PS: even if you want to put a new processor, the performance gain is not noticeable. In my opinion better upgrade would be the use of SOLID-STATE drive instead of the HARD disk

    Intel cèleront 560. I would like to apgrade processor with a dual core (T2340). Is this possible?

    Thank you very much

    In General, the CPU upgrade is not supported - http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB9401AX0001R01.htm

    Problem is that Toshiba offers no information on compatible processors that can be used on this laptop. Supported upgrade is RAM and HARD drive.

    This Satellite is old enough laptop model that can be used for everyday operations, so I see no reason to upgrade CPU. What do you need more performance?

    In my opinion, you can increase the Ram to the maximum level and exchange the original HDD with SSD faster.
    This will increase the performance of laptop computer s quickly and you can do it alone without any risk.

  • Upgrade CPU on Satellite A100-521

    Hi all, looks like a good forum here! I'm looking for more information about upgrading the processor on my Satellite A100-521.

    The current main specifications are:
    Intel Celeron M 360 (1.4 Ghz, 400 Mhz FSB)
    2 GB RAM PC2-4300
    60GB OCZ SSD 2 Vortex
    Windows 7 (works well, but without Aero)

    So it's the CPU that's the weak link, verified by the Windows performance index.

    I did some research and it seems that the chipset is AMD Radeon Xpress 200 m http://www.amd.com/u...s-200m-amd.aspx which is apparently compatible with some Pentium and Core 2 CPU: http://en.wikipedia...s_200_for_Intel

    Any ideas what I could update? Didn't need to be very fast, just a little faster with the processes of daily...

    Thank you!


    Upgrading CPU is generally very delicate due to the compatibility of the BIOS.
    Although the chipset would be able to handle new CPU, BIOS can cause problems.
    But no one is able to say that if cell would stable after these updates if you want to be 100% sure, I recommend choosing a CPU that has already been used in the A100 series
    Otherwise, it would be possible that new CPU would not be addressed by BIOS correctly.

  • Upgrade CPU on Satellite L30-134

    If someone managed upgrade CPU on one of them again? Ive had contributed up to memory, but its still a little slow if you know what I mean...: P

    Ive been watching the Core2 SLV3W 2x1.33Ghz, the same operating temperature and the FSB, the two socket 478/9 but do not know if the BIOS will chuck a Teddy, Mobile Pentium look a little hot to run on this forum, well its amazing what you can do with a dremel tool and a bit of copper pipe , if need be I will be doctor existing cooling...

    Comments or suggestions gratefully received.

    I've dealt,

    Unfortunately, no one here would be able to give you really good information that could be useful for you. Since you´re a Pro, you should check out this site for example: http://www.irisvista.com/tech/

    The BIOS cannot be changed, but if the chipset is capable you can try it. Decision-making is always the same, so the package should fit into the hole ;)
    But I recommend you NOT to change the cooling system because it s lined up to work with the entire system. The system might work a little 'non-glaciere' and wouldn be quiet as before, but it should work.

    So, how you see yourself. I'm with you, but I can give you correct information because I am just modding computers for office (and already upgraded a laptop with some new CPU so I know something about it and I can tell you: Don t ask here.) Just read the headings and you'll see why :))

    Good luck and welcome

  • Upgrading CPU for IdeaPad N585?

    Hey everybody! First time poster here.

    So I recently bought a N585 and updated RAM 8 GB, hoping to get a performance gain, given the slow super 64-bit AMD E1, but it is still a serious lack in power and crashes a lot. I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction for a processor more powerful that is compatible with my laptop, preferably without having to reinstall Windows.

    Also, is there a manual to repair/maintenance everywhere out there for this model?

    Thanks for your help!

  • Upgrade CPU on Satellite A200 - 1 M 8


    I want to upgrade CPU in my A200 - 1 M 8 (now there is T7100).

    I consider two processors:
    (a) supported by T7700 Merom with 65nm, casings made PBGA479, PPGA478
    (b) T8300 Penryn with 45nm, casings BGA479 taken in charge, PGA478

    I would prefer Penryn becouse of low power consumption and less heat generated then Merom.
    But I don't know for sure, Penryn will work on my laptop?
    There is also no update BIOS for A200 - 1 M 8 (PSAE6E) - I gess, that my bios does not support newer T8300.

    I searched internet and have not found anyone who has done this before.

  • Upgrade CPU on Satellite P10 (PSP16)

    Please can someone tell me what is the best processor on the motherboard of my Satellite P10 to support? I have a P4 HT 2.60.
    I'm ready to be replaced by other better performance (I don't like on the battery life or heat :))

    Hi Mohamed

    What to say. Generally, a replacement of CPU on laptops is not possible or not easily and very delicate.
    Why? Because
    -n t know whether the processor is welded.
    -n t know if the laptop will run stable after upgrade CPU due to heat
    -n t know if BIOS will be compatible with the new processor, etc.

    However, you should start to know check the basic information of the chipset and check which processors support the Intel chipset. I think that you will find all the details on the chipset on the Intel page. This is a basic condition for the CPU upgrade

    In any case as talked about above the CPU upgrade is usually not possible that a person could not give a guarantee that the phone will work after these updates, so be careful!

    Good bye
