HI, I just want to change the chip. A friend of mine said he can do it, but he didnt have 'processor codes', and very busy, so I thought i woul ddo the searching but I cant find these codes for any chips ('processor codes). just want to know what compatible. i am starting to think that it may be the chip is aged, and a healthier chip may run cooler. It used to be really quiet, until a few months ago. I then changed motherboards but nothings changed re fans..
Here is a site that states something about this chip:
Dual Core CPU upgrade Dell Inspiron 9100? - PCMech Forums
and he says:
I have a Dell inspiron 9100
it has a
pentium 4 prescott 3.0 ghz according to cpuz its a socket
478 mPGA 90nm
is there a dual core chip i can buy and use with this laptop?"
That may be what we need to know..?
could get a dock, they are generally fairly large though, no? Are they usually very quiet? i want ot record in my studio!
