I have compaq presario 504ea..bought based on pointer frm here almost 2 years back..
It has AMD Turion TL -50 processor...
Earlier I upgraded RAm from 1 gb t0 2 gig..
Still I was not happy with the speed ..I do have a habit of running several appications and several windows open but do not use my laptop for gaming or demanding application.
I have now downgraded from Vista Home premium to xp pro and find the things have speeded up considerably and am happy for now..
Windows 7 beta is already released and I am still on xp pro bothers me..
I want to know to what extent I can upgrade my processor.Turion 64 X2 TL-50
I would imagine that I can upgrade it to TL58(1.9-GHz, 1-GB L2 cache)) as probably the bios supports it as per the user manual
And both AMD TL-50 & TL-58 both are S1 socket
Question is will it be worth it speding 40-50 odd quids on doing this???
Or I can even upgrade it to say TL 64...as that also has S1 socket...but is probably the more latest processor..And probably costs more than 100 quids cheapest anywhere I can find..
And in that case what happens about Bios supporting the processr??
Any pointers most welcome...
