Gateway FX laptop Series Thread *mods and upgrades* - Page 192

post #1911 of 2331
I had no issues upgrading from Win Vista 32bit to Vista 64bit and finally to Win 7 Ultimate 64bit. The drivers for all of the laptop hardware is available on Gateway's site.

I want to upgrade my CPU and I dont know what to buy. I cant decide between T9500, X7900, T9300, X7800, or can I use a T9600? I have a stock FX6860. I just want to know which one I can use and is compatible with the FX6860. I dont want to buy the wrong one and not be able to return it. Ok I'm probably going to hear it and get *****ed at and be told to read through 1xx pages of post but seriously that's a lot of posts. Thanks in advance.

I have a P7811 and switched to a T9600 - total waste of money IMO. I don't notice any difference whatsoever. Maybe some testing program will show it's faster, but I sure don't see it.

Some of the previous posts talked about a CPU that CAN be overclocked. Maybe that would be the way to go.

How does you Solid state drive perform? Is it worth buying and installing one?

I didn't see any difference with a SS drive. Surely, testing software will show an amazing difference, but I didn't see it.

you can get your drivers from the gateway website, just look under P-78xx, they don't have a section for 7805
