Gateway FX laptop Series Thread *mods and upgrades* - Page 167

post #1661 of 2331
No limitations other than the inability to use quads. That proc will work fine. It will run a bit hot since it's 35W, compared to the stock 25W. That's about it.

However, the p8700 is a much wiser choice. It's 25W, over $100 cheaper, and disregarding worthless synthetic benchmarks, performs more or less the same as the t9550. The only real difference is 3mb of L2 cache, which certainly isn't worth the money.

The P8700 and T9550 won't work in the P6831. The only best choice for Vitamin Yes would be T9300 or the T9500.

Really? Both work on my 7805u, which AFAIK retains the same compatibility as the 6 series

Really. Vitamin Yes has the P6831 not the P7805. If you answered to his question, I will repeat again, there is no way the T9550 or P8700 will work on his lappy. Sorry. The P6831 is the Centrino platform not the Centrino 2 like the P7805 is. Processors with the 1066MHz Front Side Bus won't fit there.

There's the key +1 for you.

I think I can still get it out but it requires a dangerous amount of force and I'm afraid of damaging my mobo. Any ideas?

In the event anybody else runs into this problem I thought I would write up how I solved this.

One of the CPU heatsink screws was in rather too tight and my screw driver rounded the edges making the screw unmovable by conventional means.



I was scared to drill out the screw for fear of metal shavings remaining on the motherboard. So I got creative and took a 3/8" wood boing bit and filed down 1/16" off the tip.







I then put it in my drill and set it to reverse and gently stuck it in the rounded screw and hit the trigger. It came out with little to no effort! I was ecstatic. I proceed with the rest of the CPU upgrade without a hitch.

What Are you going with?
post #1669 of 2331
Hey everyone,

Completely new here, so hi!!

I'm just wondering if anyone has heard about the P-7803H-CA model before?

http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=41...acture=Gateway
http://www.canadacomputers.com//inde...id=NBK.300.358

I've searched the forums here and even tried googling it and there isn't a single review of it anywhere. Beside the specs in the NCIX, I can't even find this product on the Gateway website..

I'm wondering if it's basically the same thing as the P7805 but with a much more "student-budget" processor.

I'm tempted to buy it since on the Canada Computer website, it's ridiculously cheap for a laptop like that in Canada with this GPU (yes...everything costs way more North of the 49th parallel) (you can see how expensive laptops are with similar specs here: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...TabStoreType=3)

Thanks!
