t43 cpu upgrade shuts down laptop

i have a t43 2668-43u. i tried to install intel m 770 cpu, unit shuts down without warning  shortly after booting to windows xp sp3 (i was in the middle of 7 upgrades).

i put the intel m 750 back in and the unit ran fine for 3 days (powered on the whole time).

is there some adjustments i need to make for the 770 to run correctly?

 

thank you

Re: t43 cpu upgrade shuts down laptop

Sounds like a bad CPU to me - 770, that is.

 

No adjustments of any kind are required, it's a plug & play upgrade.

Cheers,

George

Could it be overheating?

Re: t43 cpu upgrade shuts down laptop

that is what i think happens.

i informed vendor i bought from their QC testing needs improvement.

i will try a different fan assembly before going back to the 750 cpu with fresh

silicon paste.

 

thank you
