Upgrading processor on Tecra S2-163

I think about upgrading the processor in my Tecra S2 - 163 and wondering if she can handle the Pentum M 780...

I thought that, of what is written in the manual, it would be at least treat the Pentium M 770, is this OK?



I found some info that Tecra S2 comes with three different processors Intel-Pentium-M (Dothan): 760 processor, processor 740 and processor 730.

Generally the replacement of the processor is not possible due to a permanent connection method. The processors used in laptops are connected to the motherboard using a process called TCP (tape carrier package).

  • Upgrade processor for Tecra M4

    I have a Tecra M4-138 with Intel Centrino mobile technology, including the processor Intel Pentium M 760, Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG network connection and Intel 915 PM Express chipset
    Clock speed: 2.0 GHz
    Front Side Bus: 533 MHz
    level 2: 2 MB cache

    Anyone know if it is possible to switch to a more powerful processor (keeping the motherboard)?

    There is only a single processor, which is faster than yours. It s the Intel Pentium-M processor with 2.13 GHz 770.

    So I think that it s not profitable to change the CPU, because a new processor of the laptop will be expensive
    The difference is very small and portable won't get really faster still.

  • Upgrading processor on Tecra 8100

    Does anyone know if it is possible to use a Pentium 4 in a Tecra 8100? Are there any that will fit the connector and the motherboard will be able to cope?


    Don t think you will be able to update the machine with a Pentium 4 CPU.
    The computer is equipped with an Intel? Mobile Pentium? III processor and it has three speeds of operation as follows:
    450 MHz
    500 MHz

    It seems that this is a limit.

    Your PC has an AMD FM2 + APU installed in the FM2 socket + on the motherboard of your PC.

    You can only change an AMD FM2 + APU

    The FM2 + compatible processors are listed on this link from HP. See the section upgrade processor.


    By ask on SSDs.:

    Just about any interior 6 GB/s SATA SSD will be compatible, with the exception of NVMe types.

    SSDS m2 are not compatible.

  • You want to upgrade processor for my gateway computer.

    Information title: Original CPU required

    My gateway has the 4006153R (Love Valley G) of Intel G965 Viiv Motherboard. The Core 2 Duo E6300 processor has an identifier (SL9S5) on the processor. I have the motherboard and processor supported of the gateway information for upgrades of the processor. If I chose a compatible with the motherboard upgrade processor, the processor must have the same SL * as the current processor if the BSF MHz and required socket are identical? My processor is not incorporated and uses the LGA775 socket. Answers to the specific question are greatly appreciated!

    SL numbers are unique for each processor:

  • Upgrading processors N100 0689-29U

    I've seen several posts on upgrades of the processor for the N100 and I wondered if they work for all types of N100 laptops.

    Mine is a type of N100 0689-29U that currently has an Intel Centrino Duo T2300 (1.66 GHz). I would like to move to something of 2 GHz or more if possible. I am running 2 GB of RAM, which was the max Lenovo said that will support the machine.

    The reason for my upgrade is an attempt to accelerate a fire modeling program that I am running. Is it a upgrade processor speed up my computing power or would I waste my money?

    Thank you.

    You have the format socket M, which are compatible with the following types of CPU.

    Intel Core Solo
    Intel Core Duo
    Intel Core 2 Duo (T5x00, T7x00)
    Intel Celeron M

    However, there is a limited support for the version chip Socket M Core 2 Duo T7x00, a bios flash may be needed to do their jobs, but most of these Core 2 Duo chips are quite expensive.

    CPU represents that part of the bottleneck of performance in a laptop, there is also the factor of GPU, ram, optimization of the software and hard disk file fragmentation.

    If you're going to get a CPU, you should consider the T7x00 series, however, they run a tad warmer that CPU you have now.

    But rather than make an upgrade with your laptop, I probably just save money and get a half decent job for modeling programs.

  • Upgrade CPU on Tecra R10

    I wonder if someone might be able to answer a question for me.

    I have a beautiful Tecra R10-11 b and he's been very good for quite a few years. It works under Win XP and did everything he asked without problem.

    I want to know, however, is if it is possible to mount a faster processor. I have a suspicion that the installed processor can be fixed permanently and is not replaceable, but I'd like to know.

    I had played with the idea of replacing the P9400 Intel Core Duo with something a bit new, so maybe install Win 7 and more memory. There are 3 GB of ram installed.

    Any suggestion would be appreciated.


    The CPU is bad, which means that the processor is removable.
    But important fact is that the manufacturers of portable don t CPU upgrade support.
    One of the main reasons is the BIOS which is especially modified by the manufacturers of cell phones.

    But let's start with a few basics:
    The CPU must be supported by the BIOS and chipset.

    So let's ' s check what CPU would be taken in charge by Mobile Intel GS45 Express Chipset, which is part of the Tecra R10 - 11 b
    Here on this page of the Ark from Intel, you can find compatible processors

    But even if the chipset would support new CPUS, some compatibility issues may appear because of the BIOS.
    However, the Intel Core 2 Duo CPU (Penryn Montevina) processor have been equipped in different models of R10, so probably other Intel Core 2 Duo processors are supported.

    By the way: the RAM can be upgraded up to 4 GB of RAM

  • Upgrade CPU to Tecra M10 - 13Z PTMB0E-01400LGR

    Hi, I want to improve my Tecra M10 with the CPU max supported. In fact, I have the Core Duo processor T5670 installed. Can someone give me info on the capabilities of the M10?

    Thank´s in advance.




    Theoretically, you can use a CPU that is supported by the chipset.
    As far as I know the laptop supports the Chipset Mobile Intel GM45 Express.
    So you can see the Intel Gm45 Mobile Intel properties page and what would the supported processors.

    In general CPU upgrade a tricky thing but is stronger CPU produces more heat dissipation and could lead to overheating.
    In addition he s not 100% sure that BIOS would support the new processor.

    I also found this nice doc from Toshiba:
    Is it possible to upgrade the CPU or GPU of a Toshiba laptop?

  • Re: Upgrade CPU on Tecra M5-127 with 1.66 CPU


    I have a Tecra M5-127 with a 1.66 CPU. I asked the telephone support line Toshiba regarding the upgrade of the processor.
    They told me that the CPU is integrated to the motherboard! Is this correct?
    If not, no one knows until the CPU can spend? If you don't know do you know where I can find the motherboard specifications?

    Thank you very much

    Unfortunately, CPU cannot be upgraded. Check it please this Toshiba document - http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB9401AX0001R01.htm

    What you can do is to RAM and disk HARD upgrade. Check the specs of the laptop and increase the RAM up to the maximum limit.

  • Portege R500 - Upgrade processor and RAM

    Can I put in my proceror R500 and RAM?
    Is possible? If Yes, how can you procesor I used?



    You can upgrade the RAM.
    You can use the DDR2 667 MHz (PC2-5300) or 533 MHz 200 - PIN SODIMM modules.
    You can use a 1 GB RAM module this is the max!
    There is also an internal RAM which can be removed if only one slot is expandable!

    With regard to upgrading the CPU.
    Usually it s not advised to replace/upgrade of the processor because the BIOS has not been tested with other processors

  • Portege A100 - possible to upgrade processor?

    Is Hey, also possible to upgrade the current 1.4 ghz processor to a much larger processor, such as a 3 ghz processor? If Yes can - that someone recommend where I could buy a chip... and I need a toshiba technician to fit?



    Portege A100 is a tiny unit and the increase in the temperature and the cooling of the processor is very difficult on this laptop.
    The biggest CPU will produce more heat, and this could lead to overheating problems.

    I put t think it's possible to upgrade the processor to 3 GHz.
    In any case, in most cases it of not possible to upgrade the processor and not advised to do on laptops.
    Maybe you'll be able to install a stronger CPU 1.4 Ghz, but you're not sure that the OS will be stable after upgrade

    PS: You will lose the warranty if you open the Notepad or remove all the parts inside the laptop
