New laptop help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
OK, My friend just gave me some ancient Sony Vaio with a P3. Where can I find info on what fits this mobo etc. I would like to swap out some stuff and try to make this thing usable. I have no clue when it comes to laptop HW.

Use everest andf CPU-z and get the socket model. From there you can upgrade the CPU. I doubt it but if the GPU is a MXM socket you can even get a new GPU. Of course you can always upgrade the RAM and HDD as well. Any more questions mate let me know.

Oh and Notebook hardware Control is a great tool!!!

Whats the max CPU and RAM I can use with this thing? I am having a hard time finding anything.


edit: OK, I think that the max supported CPU is 1.0Gb. Does it matter if it is a P3M or E? I found this:

I also need to know what RAM and hdd to get. Trying to see if it is even worth it.
