Inspiron B130 Upgrade CPU

  • I have Windows XP with 120GB HDD, 2GB RAM, and a Pentium M Processor 740 (1.73GHz/2MB Cache/400MHz FSB). I am looking for an upgrade on the CPU. Who would be able to guide me in the right direction with an Intel M Processor with 740 pins. I got a email from Intel themselves saying the new Xtreme CPU has something different than pins. I am annoyed by that so much. Please guide me towards a Duo-Processor if they have for notebooks.

  • Thanks, so the CPU I have cannot be upgraded is what I am reading from the chart. That just bytes. Looks like I have to do some major surgery and get a new motherboard with new everything. Or I can just skip the CPU, when I already upgraded my HDD from a 40 GB to the 120GB and 512MB RAM to the 2GB RAM I have now.
  • No you can upgrade the cpu you said you have the 740. you can go up to the 765 2.10 cpu.

  • Really, I took a computer class 2 years ago when I was a 10th grader in High School. I am now a senior. Well anyway the teacher I had told the class that the the socket number (in my case is 740) has to match to the upgraded processor (mobile or desktop).
  • You have the pentium M 740 cpu right?

  • Yep, default and very slow to begin with.
  • Then yes you can go up to the pentium M 765 2.1 processor.

  • Thanks, I will check that out. I guess that this forum is closed.
  • The additional 300mhz in the cpu is not going to make a noticeable difference in speed.

    If its slow the fan is likely clogged with dust.

    Then if there isnt more improvement Ram is another limiting factor.

    Then spyware malware and other leeches.

  • SpeedStep, just a small FYI for you and anyone who reads this thread. I am computer certified from Hardware to Software meaning that I can work at Geek Squad if I really wanted to. I know how to take care of computers to keep them up to date and stuff like that. I can make my own software so I don't have to go out and buy the really expensive stuff that in reality is only worth around $20... so I am saving a lot of money that way. I know I don't know a bunch about CPUs'; but give me time and I will be able to be one of you 'know-it-alls' (- I hate that term) and help people once like this me right now.
  • Viper i was just trying to answer and help with your question.

  • I know, I am just stating the facts about what I am currently doing in school and what I am planning on doing with my life (makin' big bucks). I could barely understand what you said. I already got my question answered, and noticing FireFox now with a really heavy lag. Some of it is part of iTunes and Defragmenting my HDD, also I have FireFox 2.0.0.9 and it is unstable... Mozilla is now upgrading way too fast. The CPU would really help now.
  • The official story is that the cpu has options.

    Processor Modules
    XC908 1.40GHz, 1MB, 360, Celeron-M, Dothan, 400MHz (RoHS)
    XC909 1.50GHz, 1MB, 370, Celeron-M, Dothan, 400MHz, C0 (RoHS)
    R8494 1.60GHz, 380, Celeron-M, Dothan, 400MHz (RoHS)
    XC804 1.60GHz, 725a, Pentium-M, Dothan, 400MHz (RoHS),(TJ85C)
    C4815 1.70GHz, 735, Pentium-M, Dothan, 400MHz (RoHS)
    GG440 1.70GHz, 2MB, 735A, Pentium-M Dothan, PGA, TJ85C
    W4774 1.73GHz, 740, Pentium-M, Dothan, 533MHz (RoHS)
    T1505 1.8GHz, 745, Pentium-M, Dothan, 400MHz (RoHS)
    M4185 1.86GHz, 750, Pentium-M, Dothan, 533MHz (RoHS)
    M4186 2.00GHz, 760, Pentium-M, Dothan, 533MHz (RoHS)
    F5705 2.0GHz, 755, Pentium-M, Dothan, 400MHz (RoHS)
    J7426 2.1GHz, 765, Pentium-M, Dothan, 400MHz (RoHS)
    U4671 2.13GHz, 770, Pentium-M, Dothan, 533MHz (RoHS)
    HC186 2.26GHz, 780, Pentium-M, Dothan, 533MHz (RoHS)

    Clogged heatsinks make the cpu throttle down sigificantly to a
    crawl.

    It would be wise to keep passive agressive "know it all" remarks
    to yourself.

  • Sorry, I am a bit on edge. Its just that I have a long day at school and I cannot wait until I am through with school until early June '08. I know it is only November, but to me these last two months have been flying by where I am hoping that the rest of the year will fly by just as fast (if not, then faster). Could I upgrade to the HC186 2.26GHz, 780, Pentium-M, 533MHz? I like the sound of the 2.26 GHz. What exactly is the CPU story? I am just seeing a list of different processors.
