I'd like to upgrade my Notebook hard drive to an SSD, what are some of the things I should be looking for to upgrade successfully, and will this affect my Windows 10 License?

A:How do I upgrade my notebook to an SSD

 For some people, upgrading a notebook to an SSD may be like diving into the deep end of a swimming pool. An SSD upgrade may involve extensive disassembly of your notebook, depending on the model. Some models have hard disks that are easier to access than others. There is the small, but important detail involving accepting the risk of damaging your notebook and violating the warranty. You will need to decide whether you want to migrate your OS to the new SSD or perform a clean installation of Windows. If you have already upgraded the notebook?s OS to Windows 10, your notebook will have a digital entitlement on the Windows licensing servers. That is Microsoft?s new licensing model which makes activation of the OS a seamless process. In the part of the installation where you see a box to put the twenty-five-character license activation key, there is a link below it that says, I don?t have a key.     That is what you should click on to continue the installation. The type of SSD that will be compatible with your notebook depends on a few things. The first is how recently your notebook came to market. The second is whether your notebook is an entry level or a high-end model with advanced features. The third is dependent on the interfaces present on your notebook?s system board. Your notebook may have only SATA ports or it may also have an M.2 or mini PCIe slot.  Older notebo...

Hi,

Is it possible to upgrade the CPU in a Toshiba M30 notebook, from a 1.5GHz Banias chip to a 1.6+ Dothan chip? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:Notebook CPU upgrade

I strongly suggest you forget about the idea. The difference isn't worth the trouble of the conversion, and it's frequently very difficult to swap processors in laptops. In general, if you gain less than a 1.5:1 improvement in processor speed, you'll notice very little difference in visual performance.

I recently purchased a HP-1d60us. It currently has an a4-3320m APU. I was looking around and found that you can upgrade the APU (which makes since because it is just a CPU, which are interchangeable), but I can't find ANY website that sells amd APS, I have found intel mobile CPUS, but no AMD. Does AMD not sell their APU's by themselves? Could someone point me in the right direction, give me a link, or just tell me AMD doesn't sell their mobile APU's.

I have a friend with a toughbook laptop and we have taken it apart to the core to find that the cpu is a standard 2.8v socket 7 p166mmx pentium cpu. we cannot find jumpers anywhere and wonder if there is any way to upgrade this chip to a 2.8v p233mmx or to one of these low volt socket 7 p266mmx cpus.

We would like to put in a k6-2 but see no way of configuring the chip. These units came stock with 100-166mhz pentium laptop and standard cpus so there must have been a way of "jumpering" them to run each chip

Any thoughts?

Thanx
 

A:Panasonic CF-25 notebook cpu upgrade

Hmm, we just installed a pentium MMX 200mhz cpu and it works great but only at 166mhz like the old cpu.

There must be a way of reconfiguring the board with different multipliers as the laptop came with anything from a p100 to a p150. but the bios has no options for this and the motherboard itself does not have jumpers to change.

Any ideas?

picked up this USB/SATA wire with the intent to hook it up to a Hard Drive I removed from a lap top and transfer the files to a new Hard Drive I installed in the lap top. I'm sure you know where this is heading, I had no clue what I was doing. I bought the new Hard Drive at Best Buy along with the Upgrade wire brought them home and quickly removed the hard drive and replaced it with the new one. I then quickly opened the Upgrade Kit (bad idea). Anyway this is the problem, I returned the new hard drive and I was thinking they informed that the new hard drive had no operating system so it would not work unless I bought the software. Also, I was going to return the Upgrade kit, but they would not take it back because they said I may have already installed the software that came with the kit. I now have this Upgrade kit that I spent $40.00 for and not  quite sure what to do with it.
This leads to my question, is there any way I can hook this wire up to the old hard drive that will not Boot and send it to my computer?
Then again there may be something in the hard drive that may compromise my hard drive. Do I have any use for this Upgrade kit.
Sorry for the long drawn out post and many questions.

I recently upgraded my home pc and am now wondering if I can replace the motherboard in a compaq notebook. does this involve soldering things in, or does it plug in like the towers?

here's what it does(compaq presario 1200, AMD K6-2 450 Mhz): I turn it on and the fan switches on, and the lights come on, but that is it. I hear no booting up noises, and nothing comes on the screen. when I put a cd in the drive, I hear it spin and read, but that is it. I tried using a startup disk, and tried replacing a small battery on the inside that I think is for BIOS. is it a motherboard problem, or processor, or other?

NB motherboards are proprietary to the case they are built for. You will never find a motherboard to fit the case unles you have a couple hundred thousand dollard to hire a design team to make a motherboard upgrade for your notebook. You would more than likely be able to upgrade the processor and memory and that's about it.

G'day,

I've been thinking about upgrading my ASUS X54C notebook by adding a SSD, and possibly more RAM.

Before I open this thing up to take a closer look, is anyone familiar with this notebook to be able to say it does or doesn't have sufficient space for both the existing 2.5" HDD, and a SSD? I guess the only real way to tell is by opening it up?

I can't seem to find an internal diagram that might give me a clue, but these are the specifications if it helps.

Currently, I have 4GB RAM, and considering upgrading to 8GB.

Thanks muchly,
Golden

A:M.2 SSD upgrade for HP Notebook 15-ay013nr

This model can have either a hard drive or an M.2 mSSD but not both. There is a Solid State Drive board that adapts the mSSD to the same space in the laptop as a hard drive or full sized SSD. Since a SATA hard drive and the M.2 plug into the same connector I would say that you have to use a SATA M.2 mSSD and not a PCI-e version as you ask about. This is a brand new model with a Skylake processor so not easy to find information but here is the Service Manual: Manual See p. 56. So if you want the mSSD and you order the laptop with either a hard drive or 2.5 inch SSD you will also somehow have to locate the SSD board. I would just install a 2.5 inch SSD since I think the board will be hard to locate.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Method 1: Use a usb to sata cable and a cloning program for the simplest way to migrate your OS to an SSD. (see the image below)Method 2: Remove the hard disk from the notebook. Put it and the target SSD in a desktop PC in spare available SATA ports.    Cloning programs like Samsung's Magician, Paragon's Migrate OS to SSD 4.0, and Apricot's EZ Gig IV will allow you to shrink the amount of data on the legacy hard disk to fit on the SSD. The migration is normally seamless and simple and usually finished in about thirty minutes or less. The cloning software will prep the hard drive on its own with scripted powershell commands. Connect the SSD to the sata connector and the USB end to a USB port on your notebook. Invoke the cloning program you have chosen to use.  When the cloning procedure is complete, all that you will need to do is replace the original legacy disk with the SSD. Enter the notebook's BIOS and set the SSD disk to the top of the boot list. Save the change, boot to your SSD and enjoy the performance boost. You won't believe that it is the same notebook. With some notebooks, in order to allow the SSD to boot you will have to use the UEFI boot order and move the OS Boot manager to the top of the list.   Method 3: A clean install of a Windows OS. Windows XP, Vista, 7 , 8 & 8.1 to the new SSD. This can be difficult if the OS is Windows 8 or 8.1. Newer notebooks have the license activation key in the BIOS as a SL... Read more

I have an HP Pavilion xf125 notebook, and would like to upgrade the memory. It has 384mb now. I don't know how much memory it will hold, or if it's even upgradable anymore since it's so old (2002 I think). The reason I want to upgrade is because it crashes pretty easy. I was thinking more memory would help solve this problem. Any advice would help... but no need to suggest I buy a new computer because I really don't use it all that much to justify the cost of a new one.

I also need a new battery for it, but don't really want to spend a lot... so looking for an inexpensive one. Not sure it's possible to find such a thing anymore. Yes, I have looked on HP's website and they don't have either memory or batteries for it.

Thanks for any helpful advice you can offer.

Can I upgrade my processor (A6 5200) to a A10 processor if so what do I need and what is compatible? 

A:AMD Processor upgrade for HP Notebook 15-af131dx

Here is your Service manual: Manual  See pages 1 and 18. There is no A10 option on that model and even to upgrade to an A8 would take replacement of the whole motherboard, which is pretty much an economic non-starter.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

I have an Asus X200MA notebook that I've recently installed a 256GB SSD on. First I cloned the existing hard drive, then I installed the SSD.

Behaviour
Unfortunately when the computer awakes from sleep or when I power it up cold, it opens up to the bios. Very annoying. It will not leave the bios until I press f10 to save new settings: If I try to leave the bios without saving new settings, it will simply reboot to the bios screen again! When I press f10 to save settings, the computer will then let me boot into windows 8.1

I've tried the following to rectify this:
(1) Upgrading the bios
(2) In the bios I've disabled secure boot and enabled CSM. The SATA is set to AHCI.
(3) Advanced startup -> and when it reboots I've chosen Troubleshooting -> Change EMFI. In the bios I've tried to create a new boot record... it doesn't seem to recall this each time it boots cold.

Uggggg.

I'm running a HP dv8408 notebook with 1.25GB RAM, planning to add a secondary hard drive. There is a second bay in the dv8408. The drive connectors are SATA. My question is: do all notebooks have the some sort of standardized way of holding the hard drives in the chassis? My primary hard drive is clipped to a sort of stainless steel shroud, with two tabs that are screwed into the chassis to hold it in place.
Thanks in advance for any insight. I figure I'm going to end up talking to HP before I figure this one out.

A:RAM upgrade for Pavilion g6-2235tx Notebook

Yes you can use DDR3L since you have the 3rd generation processor. Here is the manual: Service manual You definitely do not want to mix low and high voltage RAM. If you are going to install 2 modules you want them to be the same density (number of ranks) and ideally, you want them to be identical.  So I would get 2 x 4 gig DDR3L-1600 modules.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

I've been trying to upgrade a 60gb hard drive of a Fujitsu Lifebook S6231 to a 250gb hard drive.

I purchase the Apricorn Universal USB upgrade kit, but when I clone the disk and install it, all I get is a blinking cursor. I called up Apricorn and they mentioned that maybe the BIOS does not support larger hard drives. There are no later bios firmware to upgrade to. Also the CSR told me to try a "AS IS" clone which keeps the partition the same size on the new drive and then try using Partition Magic to expand it. I tried that and I still get a blinking cursor

I looked on the Apricorn website and they sell hard drives for my Lifebook, but the largest they sell is 120gb. So I figure maybe the largest HD the bios will support is 120gb and I go to Fry's and get one. I clone the disk and I still get a blinking cursor.

Any suggestions?

(that was fine as I have office xp I'm going to use). When I boot up the computer, I get an error message box saying:

The dynamic link library MSVCP60.DLL could not be found in specified path (.....yada-yada)
Question 1- how can I get that error message to go away for good since I don't need to ever use that file.

Question 2- win2000 shrank the screen display of the windows desktop, it doesn't fill the whole screen. It is shrunk on all 4 sides aproximately 20%. I have adjusted the screen resolution in the control panel/display/settings to the more setting and it does not help. The other parts of the screen are black and acts like the monitor is small.

I appreciate anyone's help on this. Thanks.

Not sure if this is the right place for this since this laptop is a Gateway and not one of those listed.

My parents have a Gateway Notebook, model# MX3416, that is a little over two years old.
http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/Q106/Bishop/1013920Rsp2.shtml

They had never updated any drivers or BIOS so I decided to do that for them. They had upgraded to Vista from XP and the Gateway site had drivers and a newer BIOS. The drivers updated fine but the BIOS didn't apparently. It had a Winflash utility that installed all the blocks and confirmed the installation. It restarted and now the computer only gets halfway throught the initialization and hangs after initializing the mouse, at least that is as much as it shows on the screen.

Is there anything I can do short of replacing the CMOS/BIOS chip if it is removable or the motherboard?

Any suggestions to help me resolve this problem would be greatly appreciated. I contacted Gateway Tech support but since the laptop isn't under warrantee anymore, they refused to help me.

Thanks.

Hello, For the model in Subject, it's possible upgrade the  RAM? If yes, what is the max? Is also possible change the HDD to  SSD? Thank you.

A:Notebook model: 13-u105nl Memory and hdd Upgrade

The memory is upgradeable to 16 gigs of DDR4-2133 in 2 slots or 2 x 8 gig.  It can take an M.2 mSSD drive, but only as an alternative to a regular 2.5 inch hard drive. There is a single bay and port and which drive you install depends on the adapter used.  HP has not yet posted a Manual for the 13-u100 series but the Manual for the 13-u000 series is available and shows access to the M.2 slot and memory. Manual  See pages 42 and 56. Memory upgrade is particularly challenging as it requires removal of the motherboard.  Post back with any questions.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Dear HP Support, i am the happy owner of an HP 6710b (year 2007/2008 model) notebook.Of course now it is a little bit dated. So i decided to upgrade my wifi card (intel) to a new Intel wifi card which supports the 802.11n standard. Unfortunately i discovered that HP uses BIOS based wifi card whitelists to prohibit the user to upgrade the wifi card. When i bought the notebook HP never mentioned it. HP advertised that the notebook has a mini pci express slot. Therefore i concluded that every mini pcie standards compatible wifi card would work. My Questions: 1. Why do you use bios whitelists ?2. How will you fix this ?3. When will you fix this? 4. Which models are using a whitelist? Does HP sell any Notebook/netbook without a bios whitelist?  Thank you.   

A:HP notebook wifi whitelist (card upgrade)

Hi,The first 3 questions are for HP guys but I'm not one..HP provide service manuals for its products and you may find all compatible components in there. The whitelist contains all the part numbers from the service guide so when you want to upgrade a laptop, find the component in the service guide or choose the best you can get if more components are available..The guide for your laptop: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/CoreRedirect.jsp?redirectReason=DocIndexPDF&prodSer...There is an Intel 802.11a/b/g/n compatible wireless card. The part number is: ?441086-001?(for the US etc, see the manual for the right pn))I think it's a WiFi Link 4965AGN. The part number is important because the same WiFi Link 4965AGN for the UK or other European/Asia countries will be probably different (use different wifi regulations than the US).This one should work:http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Mini-PCIe-802-11-A-B-G-N-WLAN-4965AGN-New-441086-001-/330611825906?pt=PCC...?

A:windows 10 upgrade fails on pavilion 15 notebook pc

Hi @giftedmishra? ,Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!I came across your post about the Notebook, and wanted to assist you! I have looked into your issue about your HP Pavilion 15 Notebook and issues with creating Recovery discs. Here is a link from Microsoft on creating USB recovery flash drive. Please note remove any and all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices, as these could cause some issues. Plug the power adapter directly into a functioning wall outlet. Do not plug it into a power strip, surge protector, or secondary power source as this could cause and issue.If your computer is having problems finding and installing operating system updates, try using the Windows Update Troubleshooting tool to fix the problem. I hope this helps. Thanks.

HP Pavilion Notebook zv5000
Original Memory = 512mg (256MB in each of the two memory bays)
I just attempted to upgrade my memory with a 1GB module from Kingston.
Module = 1GB PC2700 333 MHz KVR333SC/1GR

The Notebook has 2 memory bays. 1 memory bay is accessible to the user. I replaced a 256MB module with the new 1GB module. I started the computer up and it booted just fine and pulled up my desktop screen. Then I received the blue screen with a message that Windows was shutting down. I removed the module and re-seated it and tried again. Now it only gets to the Windows screen and then goes to the blue screen. It looked so simple - HELP!!
