Gateway FX laptop Series Thread *mods and upgrades* - Page 149

post #1481 of 2331
I'm trying to find the link that showed how to disassemble the laptop down to the mobo. I think Shifty might have posted it but I can't seem to find it. My fans and heatsinks are starting to get clogged with dust and I'd like to get at them to clean them out.

Quick question, I have a 6860FX with the stock T5550 and was looking to upgrade. Would the Q9000 be compatible with my laptop? If not, my second choice is the T9400.
Thanks in advance!

You can't get Quad to work correctly no Quads made for your bus speed. T9400 will not work for the same reason T9300 or X7800/X7900?X9000 are the highest. The X CPU's have higher TDP so heat could be an issue.

So for example if I were to purchase this, it would be compatible, correct? http://cgi.ebay.com/Intel-Core2-Duo-...ht_1289wt_1165
And for heat issues would getting a laptop cooler help?

Yes that would work with your PM965 chipset. And yes for heat a cooler would help. You see your TDP is going from 35w to 44w. Others have done so I guess it should work.

Hey all, I've been following this forum for a bit now as I am set on getting a Gateway FX laptop for my next comp purchase. I'm still trying to get some things figured out, however. I am mostly looking at the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834101176 P-7807u. I have a few quick questions though:

I'm anal about my screen resolution, is there any way to increase it to 1900x1200 on this beast?

Also, I'm pretty heavy into modding and want to figure out a way to wire up a backlit keyboard with lit keys hooked up. Would an Alienware mx17 keyboard fit in this so I could use that, then just wire it up?

After looking at the specs, I assume I could upgrade the CPU to the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819111011 Q9000 Quad-core, correct?

Are there any deals anyone has found on this? Newegg's price keeps jumping around.

Thanks all! I look forward to getting this and modding and tweaking and gaming the crap out of it!

I got mine at Newegg for $1099, with a $20 rebate from paypal, so I paid less than $1100 shipped. Not even a day after I ordered, the price went up $100, and now it seems to have went up another $50. o-O; I'd look around.

A few posts above yours it was stated quad core's don't work, but that was on an older FX, not sure if anything has changed.

You can upgrade your screen. A page or two back I think someone posted about an LG screen they got off eBay that works great, and is 1900 x 1200. I too am very picky with resolution, but I just got my 7807 from Newegg a few days ago, and 1440 x 900 really isn't that bad, but I still want 1900 x 1200 lol.

Offtopic~ Anyone ordered something from Newegg with horrible packing? My fx came in with 2 boxes taped together, that didn't even form 1 whole box, and barely had enough tape to hold it together. I've never had such a bad shipping experience with Newegg before =/
