Voltages are set by the CPU itself via some voltage ID pins. So you really don't have to worry about it. If it fits into a socket, then it shouldn't kill anything.

I would place bets that T2xxx works, simply because of the CPU release date. It is usually only a problem with newer CPUs, not older ones. T5xxx is actually quite similar to the T7xxx, so my guess is it'll work too.

In terms of cooling - just watch out for the total dissipation power of the CPU, which you can find under its specifications. T5's and T7's I think is 35W, while the T2's are 31W.

The CPU voltage is actually set by the CPU itself via a set of voltage ID pins. So if a CPU fits into a socket, then it should never damage or be damaged by anything by good design principles.

An older generation of CPUs like the T2xxx Core Duos should work just fine, since it's usually only a problem with those that are newer than when your product was released. For example, my V100 was purchased back in the days of the Core Duo, which needs a BIOS upgrade in order to use the newer Core 2 Duos.

Cooling shouldn't be too much of a problem. Just be aware of the total dissipation power. The Core 2 Duos should be around 35W and the Core Duos 31W. However, based on other posts, some people reports a thermal problem with their laptop, although I haven't seen a case where it's been extensively tested and confirmed. Just remember to use a high quality thermal compound and secure the heat sink firmly.

Hi Edmund,

Thanks.

How much do they differ?

Most recent laptop keyboard consists of a locking mechanism (little catches on the sides) plus screw mount hole(s). They attach to the system board via a thin, flexible connector that can be removed through some sort of zero insertion force slot.

If you decide to disassemble your laptop and reached a point where you're not confident to go any further, just put it back together then get some help at a later time.

Hi Edmund,

 

I finally be able to remove the keyboard. However it didn't solve my problem (2nd row keys do not work).

I attached the pictures for future reference.

 

Thanks.

Did anyone ever track down a CPU matrix ?

 

I am pretty sure I have a fried processor with my v100 0763 (flashing hard drive light and the machine will not post at all)thread here

 

I am not sure what all will work...I figure as long as I am inside this machine I may as well tweak it a bit.

 

Any thoughts on what processor would be the fastest I could pop in that should work without issue? Remember I can not update the bios...the machine does not even post.

 

Thanks!

Those symptoms may also be consistent with a faulty motherboard.. it's difficult to diagnose without replacing parts for testing purposes.
