So here is a funny story im sure everyone will enjoy. I sent my laptop out to be repaired by BB under my warranty. They replaced the Mb and LCD(why I don't know because it was working) and the battery. When I got it back they changed the MB to a Packard Bell MB which came with a 1GB 9800m GTS. BUT the old Bluetooth card does not work anymore. Anyone know where i can get a card to work with this new PB motherboard.

Hi Everyone, new to the forum and I have a couple of questions. I apologize in advance because I am asking similar questions to many that have already been posted but I did read almost every relevant post I could find! I have the Gateway FX 6860 that I bought a couple of years ago and I was thinking about upgrading the original CPU T5550 to a T9XXX. My question is what T processor should I upgrade to. Is there diminishing returns to a certain point? For example, with the GPU being un-upgradeable is there a point where it does not matter if you have a T9600 vs a T9900? I was thinking about the T9900 or T9800 and the price difference between the two is wide enough to make me ask this question. At the moment I play Starcraft2 on medium settings and even then there is quite a bit of lag during big fights so I thought upgrading the CPU might help a bit and maybe I could even up the settings. I also want to thank all of you for these posts because it was very informative for someone like me who has never upgraded before.

Your CPU upgrade option would be like...well, take a look here and here.

The T9600 or T9900 won't work on your platform. Hope it helps.

Thank you for your response Martee! =) I looked at the posts but the specs on my computer for the 6860 has an FSB of 667mhz.

I've read that people are putting the T-9500 in the computer I own though even with different CPU FSB. From what I understand from the posts you linked, the T-9600 or T-9900 won't work since it has an FSB of 1066. However the T-9500 etc has an FSB of 800 mhz. I am a little confused so any clarification will be greatly appreciated! thank you

The PM965 chipset is rated at 800MHz not 667MHZ. Please, take a look at this http://ark.intel.com/chipset.aspx?familyID=28116. If you click at the left on the Compatible Products you see all CPUs that work with this chipset.

Frankly, I could try to drop my T9600 into another lappy I have got, the M6850Fx with PM965 chipset, but I'm scared to do this , so we will never know, if the CPUs with the 1066FSB work there.

Martee,

Thank you for your response and clarification. That link was great and I also didn't know Gateway messed up with the wrong information! I decided to buy the T9500 and I'll let you know how it goes when I receive it!

I would be scared too to put that processor in without knowing if it would work or not. Especially since I don't even know much about putting in parts for a laptop!

Thanks again for all the help!

OK I tried to post this in the General Laptop questions area and I have recieved absolutley NO help. This is not the first time I have posted about this issue either. Posted in here about it once before and got no help here either. So I will try here again.

OK I am currently on a Gateway FX P 6831 Laptop. It has been having some issues latley. I can play CoD4 MW for hours and WoW for hours and never have an issue one day and the next day I just cruise the interwebs and it freezes up. Having to Hard reboot. Sometimes while surfing, the screen goes to a blank Orange, Green, or Purple screen and I have to hard reboot. Why would I be having this issue only while I am surfing the web but not while I have it under stressfull gaming situation?

I have already cleaned everything internally, replaced TIM with AS7 and reseated heatsinks more than once. Ran a MemTest and everything checks out. Reseated the RAM and Wifi card too Its not getting hot as we have it sitting on a Themaltake Chillpad that has a 230mm(?) Blue LED fan that keeps it cool. I have even removed every other Fan Grill spine on the intake vents on the bottom of the laptop to improve airflow(at least a 75% increase on the air intake). Its always used on a desk and never on a sofft surface or lap. I am just at a complete loss here.

Any help would be appreciated.
