Compaq presario cq43: compaq presario cq43 cpu update

I have a compaq presario cq43 notebook pc with APU AMD E-300 with radeon hd graphics 1.30 GHz and 8 GB of ram.

is it possible to upgrade my cpu to a more powerful?


No, it is soldered to the motherboard and buy new CPU with motherboard would be a very expensive updrade and it may NOT work at all.

Kind regards.

    You can virtually none of the PENRYN 45nm lithography processors put in it, the optimal processor, you can upgrade is the Intel core 2 duo t9500. I have the same laptop and I have the next step down from what is the Intel core 2 duo processor t9300. There is no complete list of the processors that it will support the lists that you will find are incomplete at best even Intel does not update their information. Go to and search PENRYN in a search more people you can use, you need to compare to ensure that.

  • Compaq presario cq5500f: Cpu - amd phenom x 4 quad core 9950


    I recently bought the quadruple-heart phenom x 4 125w 9950 and wanted to update my one heart amd sempron 140.

    I bought with the intention to upgrade my compaq presario cq5500f so that I can use it as a gaming pc.

    However, when I put the cpu in the pc it says no "supported installed Cpu" and then it stops automatically after.

    Is this a driver problem? Is this a bios problem? Is this a problem of design of thermal power?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Here IS THE page of the motherboard and the choice of the CPU.  He says that the CPU should be TDP: 95W processor said is the AMD Phenom X 4 9950, which is a 125W CPU.  I suspect that's the reason why the BIOS claims not supported CPU.  OEM motherboards are picky about the card like that.

  • Compaq presario notebook GPU update

    I have a compaq presario cq50-105AU notebook. I was pleased with the performance of the current GPU (nvidia geforce 8200 m). I am able to upgrade to a higher GPU?

    Nope. Cannot be.

    This option is only for desktops and workstations. Only upgrades posibble internally for a laptop computer are memory and hard drive. If you don't have "the mind to open your laptop and void the warranty, you can also pass the CPU."

  • Compaq Presario CQ56-112SA: updated the Chipset drivers

    I had a "sleep mode" problem with my laptop recently in that, if I select 'sleep' the laptop screen goes black, the fan continues to run and doesn't wake up with the keyboard or the mouse. I then turn off and turn on then and Notepad opens in "Windows Error Recovery".

    It was suggested that I should update the chipset drivers as a possible solution.

    Are there risks in doing this?


    According to the AMD Web site, it would be the last chipset driver for the chipset that has your model.

    You can also run the auto detects a software and see if amd draws a different driver and try this one first.

    Risk to install guide are that driver not install, or if it's the operating system does not start on reboot.

    Can't tell you what would be the chances of something bad happening.  I would say not very high.  But if your luck is like mine, then...

    Another problem could be the graphics driver.  You may want to reinstall that where some files display driver got screwed up over time.

  • Compaq Presario V5204NR: CPU Intel Celeron M 410 compatible Bios upgrade/replacement

    I'm to boost the performance of my laptop dated. He has 2gigs of RAM and I don't remember what speed but I want to move to a faster processor. What can manage my bios?

    I am wanting to know if I can upgrade a Core Duo or Core 2 Duo. I read online that I can switch to a Core Duo but it the new processor has to match the speed of the FSB of the current processor?

    The FSB speed should match the RAM speed or vice versa? I'm still new to all this computer jargon and terminology.

    Upgrade the hard drive to a faster speed would also improve performance? I don't remember if I have a speed of 5400 or 7200 RPM. How big can I go?

    Thank you!

    I got the Intel T1350 installed and it works. No doubt seems to work better than the Celeron M 410.

  • Compaq Presario C700 GPU update?

    I was just wondering if the C700 has an extra slot (PCI, in my view, is the name) for a better GPU integrated. I disassembled my computer and it doesn't seem like there is a lot of room to work with, so I have no idea, frankly.

    Also, I don't know what specific type of C700 I have. Several Web sites name 'C700ET,' 'C700EM', "C700 CTO," etc., but the label on the bottom of my laptop saying simply 'C700'. I don't know if this affects the type of motherboard I have so that you can answer this question.

    Any additional information you need we will post shortly. Thanks for any input.


    In General, it is not possible to upgrade the video (or card) chip in a notebook that the two are physically soldered to the motherboard - there is no PCI Express x 16 slot available you would find in a desktop PC.  If you are looking for your the part No. (see here ) on the serial number on the bottom of your laptop, you can enter it on the link below to access your particular model.

  • Compaq dc7800: DC7800 CPu id and BIOS update probem


    My first post here, I hope you get what I'm trying to say.

    Well, I have this old compaq dc7800 sff and I managed to level it's OS to Windows 10.

    And now, I would like to update its bios and CPU id, but I can't run those exe, I downloaded on the cd7800 support site.

    I know that these bios update programs and so forth are not published for Windows 10, but I thought that windows7 versions would work.

    But they did not.

    For some reason, I got the the messege that "software publisher has refused to run this program on this computer.

    While this mean?

    I can't run these programs even with administrator privileges, I get the same messages?

    Because of Windows 10? Or what?

    The reason why I came across this problem was that I tried to update the CPU of the Q6600 to Q9550 and I got the error of CPU - ID firmware.


    It is very easy to update the BIOS on a dc7800 without being under Windows.

    In the menu of the BIOS on the file tab, there is a rom flash system command.

    All you have to do is put the BIOS files on a USB stick formatted with the FAT32 file system.

    Rather than go though all the steps to get the BIOS files, I've zipped or less than joint under attachments.

    Unzip them and copy the content of the file of the folder (not the folder), for your USB flash drive.

    Plug the flash drive into your PC and restart it, tap the F10 key to access the bios, select the file menu and on this list will be a rom flash system command.

    What to choose, and the PC will 'see' the files on the flash drive.  Follow the instructions on the screen to Flash the BIOS.

    I have attached files to the latest revision of the BIOS (1.32 Rev. A (6 Dec 2011)).

    If you still get the microcode error after updated the BIOS with the latest version, let me know, because then update the firmware, and it is a much more complex process.

  • Presario SR5100 - CPU fan failure / BIOS firmware update

    My SR5125CL Office does not start even after replacing the CPU fan. Error: The CPU fan has failed.

    Some sites, I searched recommended deactivation/check the fan under the hardware > monitor in the BIOS.
    Cannot find this menu in the BIOS. Attempted to upgrade the BIOS from:

    use a different PC and it just tries to install on this PC. No options to create an update CD. Looking for other sites, same lame upgrade that involves running the OS. Even if the PC boots long enough to upgrade the firmware, it is now Windows 7 and the patch is only for Vista.

    I'll win the volunteers here and explain others to profit from my mistake. I took out the old fan to match. When I installed the fan nine days later I have it plugged into the outlet of case fan. For a CPU fan, it is not the BIOS. In any case, similar problems on the forum gave me the idea to look for another job from outlet and it is.

    Thank you


  • HP Compaq dc7800 Convertible M: CPU update for HP Compaq dc7800 Minitour Convertible

    I have a hp dc7800 cmt computer intel core 2 duo e6550

    I bought Brosissour e8500
    The installation seems to me that the problem
    "microcode update error".


    The E8500 must have worked.

    I suggest that you update the BIOS to the latest version. & swItemId = vc_97114_1 & swEnvOid = 4059

    Since you are using W8.1, you will have to flash the BIOS using the method based on the BACK.

    Not only run Windows based BIOS flash.

    Before update you the BIOS, remove all that that can be connected to the PC, except the keyboard, mouse and monitor.

    There is a flash ROM control system contained in the file menu in the BIOS.

    You will need to format a Flash DRIVE with the FAT32 file system.

    Download and run the BIOS to support dc7800 page was last updated.

    An information page will open and show you the different methods to Flash the BIOS.

    What you want to do is to use the instructions F10 Setup of the BIOS flashing .

    This article, you click on the blue link BACK Flash directory and this will bring you to the bottom of the page to another blue link that is labeled View of BACK Flash content folder.

    Copy the contents (files) in the folder flash BACK to your USB.

    Plug the USB key into one of the front USB ports.

    Restart the computer and press the F10 key to enter the BIOS.

    Select the file Menu.  Then in this menu, there is a Flash ROM of system command.

    What to choose, and then select USB and PC should see the files on your USB flash BIOS.

    Follow the instructions to update the BIOS.
