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.

Thanks for help

  • Upgrade CPU on Satellite A200-1N7

    Hello, im an owner of laptop A200-1N7 and I want to upgrade the parts in. Some members of the staff may provide information to:

    -taken max supported CPU for this laptop
    Surprising that the processor will work:
    T4500 FSB is 800 Mhz
    T3400 FSB is 667 Mhz
    T2390 FSB 533 Mhz - same T2310 to A200 is
    Now, I would say T2390 will work for sure, T3400, perhaps, but it would be good that T4500 would go. All who are Socket-P, all TDP35W and are all about the same voltage.

    -max ram supported - I know book says 2 GB, but there may be a BIOS upgrade or so who takes care of this limit, at least 2x2gb would be great

  • Possible to replace the CPU on Satellite A200 - 1 H 2?

    Can I replace my cpu (Toshiba Satellite A200 - 1 H 2) by another? Because I know that some laptops can do that.

    Hi mate,

    first of all, if you want to lose your warranty, then replace it. And I could give you more than 10 arguments why not do it because if you´re not familiar with disassembly of laptops and without machine´s hardware information you cannot exchange it.

    So generally it s is NOT possible, perhaps with other brands but I think that other brands manufacturers do the same thing as toshiba and will revocate the guarantee of the machine if you open your machine and you try to modify the materials 'wired' inside your laptop.

  • Upgrading processor on Satellite A200-18W

    Is it possible to replace the Intel® Core Duo T2350 (1.86 GHz) with Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 / 2.1 GHz / 3 MB Cache?

    Best regards

    Hello Xavier

    As you probably know the CPU upgrade is not supported. I understand that you want to have a more powerful machine, but have you tried to lower the hardware upgrade for better performance? I mean RAM.

    Satellite A200 is known to me and I always use old P200. With the maximum RAM and Win7 32 bit my P200 works perfectly. For daily activities and oldest machine games is perfect if I think that upgrading the CPU is certainly not necessary.

    Is there a particular reason why you need a faster CPU?

  • 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.

  • 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

  • Upgrade CPU on Satellite L350-14Y


    I'm french so my enclise is approximate.

    Intel cèleront 560. I would like to apgrade processor with a dual core (T2340). Is this possible?
    Can wich processor I upgrade my laptop please?

    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.

  • Problem of camera Chicony after Vista Ultimate upgrade on the Satellite A200 - 1CZ PSAEC

    Hey all.

    I recently bought a Satellite A200-1CZ (PSAEC). It has Vista Home Premium preinstalled. But I wanted to be able to connect to my domain at work, so for this purpose, I had to upgrade to Vista Ultimate. The update itself went well, but after the upgrade, I can not the built-in Chicony webcam to work again. I tried to reinstall the software of the camera without success.

    I also tried to plug the driver installation to the place on the PC where the drivers. He says that it is indeed the correct drivers, but there could be missing a post in the INF file. It seems that it must be written specifically for ultimate.

    Anyone got a few other pilots or maybe a solution to this problem?

  • Upgrade CPU on Satellite A40


    I m wondering if anyone knows what the best processor I can put in my Satellite A40, as the current is on its way and so I m wondering if I can put in a Pentium M because I think he has the same socket.

  • Faster CPU for Satellite A200-1AB


    No one knows what would be the fastest possible processor I could put in an A200-1AB or where I might be able to find the information.

    It comes with a c2d T5300 which is 1.7 ghz/533bus... I hope that it can take 667bus chips speed but for the life of me can not find information on the mother or this card that it accepts.

    Any info appreciated :)


    Sorry, but I don't really understand you. You buy laptop latest, and after a few days you think CPU upgrade. For me, it's very strange. Why?

    Usually before purchasing laptop or laptop even, it is useful to take some info on the hardware. You know very well what you want to do with your laptop and it is logical that you should buy the right equipment for your needs.

    I will say that there are many models A200 with much better equipment and performance graphs than yours. Why you didn t pay 300 Euros more for best laptop?

    Just to be clear: the CPU upgrade is not taken in charge and everything you do is at your own risk. If you open the notebook the warranty will be cancelled definitively. If you need more performance upgrade of RAM to the maximum level. It will be much cheaper and without any risk.

    Sorry because I didn t give you info on compatible CPU, but I just wanted to write my comment on upgrade CPU on the new laptops.

  • Question about upgrading RAM on Satellite A200-1CR


    I have the Satellite A200-1CR, PSAE0E-02G01TSK
    I have 2 GB of RAM
    I can install 4 GB of RAM (because I try 2x2Gb 800 MHz) and don t work.

    Do I only 667 MHz or my laptop supports only 2 GB?
    Thank you


    Your laptop can be upgraded to 2 GB top only and for the upgrade you must use 667 MHz compatible modules.
    To correctly update I recommend 2 X 1 GB DDR2-667 with PA3512U-1M1G part number.

  • 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
