Question by Bret W: Can i replace my old processor(intel pentium M) wit a new one(AMD 64 dual core)?
i have several computers but only one works and i have been rebuilding it slowly, i got the main computer for free from a dumpster and once i loaded linux to an external drive and ripped out the internal the thing works great, only problem is that it is a little slow and i want to upgrade the processor and RAM, and maybe put a hard drive in it later but that’s no big deal right now. here’s what i know:
it’s a Gateway m320x and it currently has 512mb RAM(ddr1), no internal HDD(but it came with 20 GB IDE), Intel Pentium M 1.5Ghz processor.
i have a semi-new HP laptop laying around and it’s in a hundred thousand pieces, but i know where the processor is and i was wondering if it is possible to take the Intel(blech) out and throw in my AMD with no issues??? if not it’s no big deal but since i plan on going to the comp salvage yard tomorrow i was hoping to hear someone tell me that i can just throw the AMD in it and be on my way. either way i have to buy more RAM cause 512MB even on ubuntu isn’t much
EDIT: odds are that i am gonna try no matter what the general consensus here is, but i wanna ask just so when it decides not to work i’m not surprised
Answer by Vestrinex
The processor sockets are different, so the AMD CPU wouldn’t actually fit.
And if it did, the motherboard’s chipset wouldn’t know what to do with it
I really don’t think you would be able to swap the processors over.
