The only way yo get to it is to take the motherboard out. It took me about 45 mins to take it apart and back together. Not difficult at all

Yeah, it's not really hard but you do have to be more careful than when you service a desktop because some of the parts aren't as rugged.

Ive tried loading a new BIOS and checked on my device manager and it still shows my old T8400. How do I make device manager recognize the new processor?
Nobody responded but I figured it out;
Uninstall the driver for the old CPU and then run update driver and now my laptop recognized my new processor.
I benched marked it but cannot save the page to post it here, anyone cares to fill me in on how this is done?

I've been running Prime95 and no errors aswell.

Can I add my setup to the members list or am I to new to be regnized? 'lol

Thanks

I'm really considering buying a P-7805u, but does anyone know about the whole resolution thing with the P-7805u? I was reading some reviews and kept seeing that some people managed to get a 1920x1200 resolution, while some people got the 1440x900. Anyone have more information about this?

has anyone called gateway to see if we can buy a BD-burner to replace the optical drive we already have? I remember Gateway selling laptops with BD reader and burners some time ago before I bought my 7805u.

I would myself, but I am overseas for a 3 months.

hey guys, wats the safest temp for the GPU in a 7811FX when gaming?
mines sometimes reaches 87C even with my Cryo cooling on max.

ive used compressed air to blow out the dust out of the gpu heatsink but it still gets hot. any ideas?

Underclock your CPU. The guide is stickied in the laptop section. Helped me a ton!

i did that. idle on my bed cover is 45C
with my cryo is 38C. i put ceramique on cpu. but idk why my gpu is almost always hot. right now in my bed cover its 52C when i have it on my cryo its bout 43C.

i remeber one time it hittin 95C but thats cuz i had the vent covered. bad thing from my side, but dont mind since i have accidental warranty on my laptop!
