Qosmio G30-149RU - Question about hardware upgrade (CPU)

Hello

I have a toshiba qosmio G30-149RU and my question is possible to make these changes?

Intel® 945 PM Express chipset

Intel Core Duo T2500 to Intel Core 2 Duo T7600 processor
2x512MB DDR2 533 2x2gb DDR2 667
2 x 100 GB 5400 RPM RAID HARD drive with 128 gb SSD + 500 GB 7200 RPM HARD drive

one last thing, my qosmio I have NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 256 MB, but I don't know if it is possible to change or not. If possible, what video card will be the best?

Sorry for my bad English and thanks for help :)

P.S.: I got to the House 128 GB ssd and 500 GB hard drive, but others, I'll buy. CPU nearly $ 100, ram near $ 40...

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.

Upgrading CPU is little tricky.

  • A few questions about the upgrade on Satellite A300-144

    Sorry for the typos, English is not my mother tongue.
    I want to ask some questions about the upgrade of a300-144.

    * Some info first.*

    CPU: T2370 ([http://ark.intel.com/products/34445/Intel-Pentium-Processor-T2370-1M-Cache-1_73-GHz-533-MHz-FSB]).
    Chipset: GM965 ([http://ark.intel.com/products/29821/Intel-82GM965-Graphics-and-Memory-Controller]).

    * Questions.*

    1. my frequency of laptop memory at 533 MHz, supports 667 MHz memory controller, memory modules can work at 667 MHz. Is - this because CPU FSB 533 MHz frequency and new processor at 667/800 MHz FSB will fix it or it is hardcoded in the BIOS?

    2 Intel said that the size of max memory for my chipset is 4 GB (2 x 2 GB), but Toshiba says that only 2 GB (2 x 1 GB), who is right?

    3 I know, taken of my CPU is μFCPGA-478 aka socket P, max FSB 800 MHz, max 35 W TDP, so T9500 ([http://ark.intel.com/products/33918/Intel-Core2-Duo-Processor-T9500-6M-Cache-2_60-GHz-800-MHz-FSB]) is a compatible processor or there are some limitations in the BIOS?

    > 1. My frequency of laptop memory at 533 MHz, supports 667 MHz memory controller, memory modules can work at 667 MHz. Is - this because CPU FSB 533 MHz frequency and new processor at 667/800 MHz FSB will fix it or it is hardcoded in the BIOS?

    The speed of the memory is related on the material. This means that the FSB is responsible for the limitation.
    If the FSB would allow support 667 MHz then the memory would also at this speed.

    > 2. Intel says that the size of max memory for my chipset is 4 GB (2 x 2 GB), but Toshiba says that only 2 GB (2 x 1 GB), who is right?
    The memory depends on the chipset. So if the chipset supports 4 GB of RAM, you should be capable of this move to 4 GB of RAM

    > 3. I know, my CPU is? FC-PGA-478 aka socket P, max FSB 800 MHz, max 35 W TDP, so T9500 (http://ark.intel.com/products/33918/Intel-Core2-Duo-Processor-T9500-6M-Cache-2_60-GHz-800-MHz-FSB) will be a compatible processor or there are some limitations in the BIOS?

    It might be possible that the new processor would be fully supported by the BIOS, but in most cases it should not be a problem if the chipset would support the new processor.
    But as far as I know the upgrade of the CPU is not supported by Toshiba or any other manufacturers of portable and its your own risk to run laptop with the new processor.

    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.

  • Tecra S3: hardware upgrade - CPU, RAM, HARD drive

    Hello

    I just got a laptop from my company and it's 2 a bit slow for what I do, so please advise me on a hardware upgrade or point me in the right direction to ask this question.

    My Tecra is S3 model PTS30E - 01P01CG3 Y5120397H series, it is about three years old and I would like to upgrade:

    1 - CPU Intel Pentium M1.86 gHz, I can replace it with a dual core or core 2 duo of?
    The motherboard does it take? What is the most powerful CPU it can use?

    2-ram memory is 1 GB and I want to place as much as possible. 2 GB is the best that I can place?
    Can you recommend a brand of RAM which would give exceptional results?

    3-disk HARD 80 GB comes, and I also want to know if I can replace it with a bigger?
    Than do options GB 120 GB, 160 GB, I have more? These HDD fit as the size in my laptop?

    4-If you have any other recommendation of dope performance, please let me know.

    I live in Romania, I'm not sure where can I make these upgrades. What is the nearest place?

    Thank you and have a nice day.
    Florin.

    Hello Florin

    Tecra S3 is old enough laptop model, and expect too much with upgrades, especially with the CPU. Of way General CPU cannot be upgraded and perhaps should not be upgraded. Each laptop model has a specific design and cooling modules are optimized for the specific hardware platform.

    1. so, for you it is important to have the laptop stable without damaging the hardware. Okay, just for the record
    Tecra S3 comes with separate Intel Mobile Pentium-M processors - [1.73GHz/1.86GHz/2.0AGHz (0.748-1.356V)/2.13GHz (0, 748 - 1.372V))]
    [/ 2.26 GHz (0, 748 - 1.404V)] and these processors operate at 533 MHz bus clock.
    Update CPU not is also not supported if forget it. The CPU you have inside is powerful enough. What you need is more RAM and perfectly configured and optimized operating system.

    2 RAM can be upgraded up to 2 GB and it is not the problem. You can use 2 x 1 GB RAM DDR2-400/533 1 GB (PA3411U-1M1G).
    This RAM is tested and works perfectly with your Tecra S3 of will be.

    3 disk HARD upgrade is also not problematic. Tecra S3 uses SATA HDD and you can improve it with more than 120 GB. I'm 100% sure that you can use 160 GB with no problems.
    In my opinion, that's good enough. Isn t it? ;)

    4. optimize the operating system. Disable all unnecessary background processes and your Tecra will be working perfectly.

    >.. .i don't know where I can make these upgrades.
    Do it alone. It is not so complicated. If you need help let us know.
    Good bye

  • Questions about the upgrade from 4.1 to 5.1

    I posted the following to the thread in the forum of Vsphere upgrade, and in five days I got ZERO responses. Perhaps more here and even here is the wrong place to post things, or maybe I'm not questions easily answer. I'll post it here too, since it mainly Virtual Center, I think. Maybe someone can help me or tell me what is the problem with my announcement that allows to go unanswered. Here we go:

    I'm about to upgrade my little (1 4 host ESX and Virtual Center) environment vSphere 4.1 and 5.1.  My database to the virtual Center lives on a separate SQL server 2008R2 server. My virtual Center Server is virtual, if that matters. I have upgraded my licenses and read the documentation, to try to formulate a plan that escapes enough causing any downtime for my virtual machines.

    I am designing a series of steps that are all pretty low, and such that each step does not harm anything, whereas if I have problems, I can take my time to solve. Then, when this step is stable, I can continue to the next step. I want to tell you what I have in mind, ask a question here and there and hope you can report errors that I make and answer my questions. The big picture is:

    1 Virtual Center update and give him a few days to show me any problem before doing anything else.

    2. upgrade to a host ESX 4.1 5.1 ESXi. Convince me things are okay, before you do more.

    3. put to level the other three 4.1 ESX hosts. Make sure that everything is fine.

    4 create new LUNS, formatted with the new VMFS, move my VM to them and remove the old one.

    If there is nothing wrong with this basic plan, please let me know.

    More details and questions:

    Question: The docs say my Virtual Center Server, under the SSO, the inventory service and the virtual Center Server, will need TEN GIGABYTES of RAM.  Is this true? It seems insane to me.

    Question: Can I install on my Virtual Server 4.1 single signon Center without DANGER?  In other words, its installation will prevent Server 4.1 virtual work center? I hope I can, because it is a new feature that I have trouble with. I don't want to get into a situation where my old virtual server Center does not work, and I can't get the new work.

    Question: The VI 4.1 client can talk to Virtual Center 5.1? The VI Client 5.1 can talk to Virtual Center 4.1? I hope that the answer to one of the people is 'yes '.

    Step 1: Create a backup of my virtual Center VM (with vRanger connection, if this is important) and a backup of my SQL database.

    Step 2: Install single Signon. Here is where I hope that this does not stop 4.1 virtual work center.

    Step 3: Upgrade the inventory Service and Virtual Center to 5.1

    Step 4: Install VI Client 5.1 on the VM virtual Center and on my desk from which I usually manage my environment.

    Step 5: Wait I'm comfortable that everything is fine. It is perhaps a day or two (or more).

    Question: How can I spend my hosts for maximum security? I'd rather put a DVD in the drive and do it from the console, unless this is not a good way.

    Question: Before I update a host, should I remove the fiber channel cables, so he can't see my VMFS LUNS? I think I read that somewhere, and it sounds like a good thing to do, even if I do not have.

    Step 6: Upgrade a host ESX 4.1 5.1 ESXi. Move a couple of virtual machines essential to it and he give a day or two to settle.

    Step 7: Upgrade the other three ESX host.

    Step 8: Wait until I'm really, really comfortable with things.

    Step 9: Create a new LUN VMFS5, migrate my VMs to them over time and remove the old one.

    I would greatly appreciate all advice and attention that you may have.

    Question: The docs say my Virtual Center Server, under the SSO, the inventory service and the virtual Center Server, will need TEN GIGABYTES of RAM.  Is this true? It seems insane to me.

    If your environment is small you can run all these in one and ofcouse if you execute all these in a server you need more RAM... There is no limit.

    Question: Can I install on my Virtual Server 4.1 single signon Center without DANGER?  In other words, its installation will prevent Server 4.1 virtual work center? I hope I can, because it is a new feature that I have trouble with. I don't want to get into a situation where my old virtual server Center does not work, and I can't get the new work.

    normally if you think only in terms of scalability, it is good to have separate these things... He is sure no questions evey thing won't work if you install it on the same server also.

    Question: The VI 4.1 client can talk to Virtual Center 5.1? The VI Client 5.1 can talk to Virtual Center 4.1? I hope that the answer to one of the people is 'yes '.

    The VI 4.1 client can talk to Virtual Center 5.1? No, but talk about Client 5.1 Virtual Center 4.1

    Step 1: Create a backup of my virtual Center VM (with vRanger connection, if this is important) and a backup of my SQL database.

    Step 2: Install single Signon. Here is where I hope that this does not stop 4.1 virtual work center.

    Step 3: Upgrade the inventory Service and Virtual Center to 5.1

    Step 4: Install VI Client 5.1 on the VM virtual Center and on my desk from which I usually manage my environment.

    Step 5: Wait I'm comfortable that everything is fine. It is perhaps a day or two (or more).

    these steps are ok

    Question: How can I spend my hosts for maximum security? I'd rather put a DVD in the drive and do it from the console, unless this is not a good way.

    BLI, or DRAC suites method what ever you... very well.

    Question: Before I update a host, should I remove the fiber channel cables, so he can't see my VMFS LUNS? I think I read that somewhere, and it sounds like a good thing to do, even if I do not have.

    Installing esxi will not hurt of thing... to the old VMFS... It will ask to keep or to format the old vMFS... BUT I prefer to remove the cables... BECAUSE we are humans...

    Step 6: Upgrade a host ESX 4.1 5.1 ESXi. Move a couple of virtual machines essential to it and he give a day or two to settle.

    no need... . If the hardware is on the HCL, I mean the firmware/driver etc... for the esx is on the HCL, then no problem...

    Step 7: Upgrade the other three ESX host.

    Step 8: Wait until I'm really, really comfortable with things.

    Step 9: Create a new LUN VMFS5, migrate my VMs to them over time and remove the old one.

    assign the new LUN and create VMFS and migrate... It'S her!

  • Question about MSD + upgrade and migration applications

    Hi all

    I am running:

    TMS 13.2

    TMSPE 1.0

    The two co reside on a Windows 2003 server, pointint in an external box of SQL.

    We also organize TCX 2.3 on our Exchange.

    Now that our server guys have * finally * installed the service pack required on the Exchange, we are ready to migrate to TMSXE but also to upgrade the TMS and TMSPE.

    So we want ot go to:

    TMS 14.2.1

    TMSPE 1.1

    TMSXE 3.1

    In addition to migrate a Windows server 2008R2 TMS + TMSPE.

    I know the different individual guides to upgrade as well as the dependencies between TMS and TMSPE/TMSXE versions.  I'm hoping to do the upgrade and migration all in one and am hoping to get some tips on the best order to do everything.

    My first question - decomission the 13.2/TMSPE server 1.1 TMS, that I can install TMS 14.2.1 and TMSPE 1.1 on the Windows Server 2008, they point to the relevant databases and allow upgrading from there? Or do I need install the new versions TMS/TMSPE on the old server, first of all, upgrade the databases and then migrate?

    Second question - before all this, I run the TMSXE migration tool to extract the data 2.3 TCX, uninstall TCX of Exchange, TMS upgrades and then install TMSXE 3.0/3.1 at the end?

    As all this is running on the virtual machine I'll instant just in case.  Advice on the issues listed above, or general advice about these upgrades would be appreciated

    Hi Nick, IMHO, I suggest you first migrate your 2.3 TCX to TMSXE 3.0.2 by this TMSXE 3.0 installation guide, and then pass the TMS and PE later.

    Yes, VM snapshot backup option before any upgrade is fine.

    1. your files should be kept in an upgrade, but we always recommend making a backup to be sure.

    2. your software will be kept, but as with #1 above, we recommend to always have your install CD/file available to be safe in case you need it.

    3. you can buy the edition of Windows 8 Upgrade from a store or online, Yes. It is not free.

  • Qosmio G40-108: Question about CPU upgrade

    Dear friends, I am an Italian man who asks if it is possible to change the CPU (T7700) of my Qosmio g40-108 with the new T9300 (like USA G45-AV690)

    All the best
    David

    Hi david

    Please understand that mobile technology is completely different Office of PC technology and motherboards are all just different.
    Upgrading the CPU's especially not possible or very risky for other reasons.

    A main reason could be overheating; as you know the stronger CPU would produce more heat and this could lead to a higher temperature and finally to overheating...

    In addition you BIOS was not configured for other processors so it possible s that your laptop does not start after such update!

    See you soon

  • Qosmio F20-136: Question about upgrade memory

    I purchased a Qosmio F20-136 with 512 MB of on-board RAM, but wanted to update, so bought additional 512 MB RAM (DDR2) for a total of 1024 RAM.

    I said global PC sales guy I wanted only if the laptop has two slots.

    I took the cap of the other week and only 1 slot is visible to the naked eye.

    I do not go any further.

    Does anyone know if there are two slots or that one meaning that I have to buy a bar of 1 GB DDR2?

    Thank you very much

    Hello

    The Qosmio support two memory locations, and it should be possible to use 2 sticks of memory. You can upgrade the memory for max 2048 MB (2x1024Mo).
    The locations of memory, you will find at the bottom of the unit. To remove the small cover that secures the slot. Also see the user manual. You should also find a detail.

    PS: These modules of memory are supported:

    DDR2 400/533 256 MB (PA3389U - 1 M 25)
    512 MB DDR2-400/533 (PA3412U - 1 M 51)

    I'm looking to upgrade the RAM in my Qosmio G20, but if I buy little ram in a store and fix myself (replacing the old RAM) void my warranty? (it is still covered by the extended warranty now)

    Don t worry! You can upgrade the memory and the guarantee will be cancelled not!
    You can do it yourself. It is very easy and I presume that the detailed statement is in of the Qosmio G20 user manual.
