I recently purchased a new CPU for my laptop which is the Gateway FX p-6831, its a Intel core 2 duo 2.4 ghz 3mb cache p8600. it's slot p of course but when I install it and turn on the laptop the fans kick in and everything but the screen stays black and nothing happens.

If you need more info let me know, this is really frustrating me seeing as I love this laptop and all it needs is a CPU upgrade to stay current.

The P8600 won't work in the p6831, what you need is the processors with the 800MHz Front Side Bus. The P8600 will work on the Centrino2 laptops as the newer P78xx FX series with 1066MHz FSB.

You have to get one of these CPUs :

T9500 2.60GHz 800MHz FSB 6MB L2 Cache
T9300 2.50GHz 800MHz FSB 6MB L2 Cache
T8300 2.40GHz 800MHz FSB 3MB L2 Cache
T8100 2.10GHZ 800MHz FSB 3MB L2 Cache
T7800 2.60GHZ 800MHz FSB 4MB L2 Cache
T7700 2.40GHz 800MHz FSB 4MB L2 Cache
T7500 2.20GHz 800MHz FSB 4MB L2 Cache

You can also get the X series processors, but I don't recommend them due to heat which they produce.

X9000 2.80GHz 800MHz FSB 6MB L2 Cache
X7900 2.80GHz 800MHz FSB 4MB L2 Cache
X7800 2.80GHz 800MHz FSB 4MB L2 Cache

Hope it helps.

Decepticon,

The P8600 will fit in your lappy, but won't work. Sorry. Look at my previous post. I would recommend the T9300 or the T9500. I have got the T9300 in my M6850FX machine which is the 15" version of the P6860FX.

Yes, you are. As I already mentioned the T9300 processor would be the best choice. It's relatively cheap and would give you the best performance boost.

People not too happy with a 800 fsb cpu in their comps mobile gaming systems, It wasn't too long ago I built top gaming desktops with 133 fsb!!

I found a laptop sitting in a trash can on W 54st in Manhattan this spring, turns out it had a T8100, and now that's what my 6860 has, lucky me, I'm also 25% irish
