Wow! This forum looks awesome! How come I never stumbled upon this place is beyond me, but this forum and thread looks exactly like what I need!
Okay, so I bought a Gateway FX P7803h laptop last december which was on sale for $699. I always heard that the FX laptops are very powerful, so I couldn't possible miss such a deal. After I bought it I had all the fun I needed, because I could play most of my favourite games on full settings at 720p resolution and higher @ around a solid 60fps. But then, after upgrading to Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit I started getting sever overheating issues. Even the bios upgrade didn't do any good. Aside from that, I noticed that the CPU was really bad compared to some of the other FX laptops. For example a dude could play GTA IV at 1440 x 900 with full settings with the same specs except a better CPU. Now I wonder if I could UPGRADE my laptop's CPU from a Core 2 Duo P7350 @2.00 GHZ to something much better and faster like atleast @2.2 GHZ. Can you guyz help me try to upgrade this laptop please? Also, can I get a better Graphic Card with the newer CPU if I buy one? Thanks a lot, as I can hardly find any support for this specific model....hell, even Gatway's website doesn't have it listed! :O
Thanks for any future feedback.
