Preferred Solution: Update HP laptop CPU T6400 to T6670 Core 2 Duo

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello!

I would like to ask you guys if there is a wide difference between Intel Pentium Dual Core T4200 and Core 2 T6400 laptop processors.

My dad recently brought me a new Dell Studio 15 laptop as my high school grad gift. Its equipped with T4200, but as I read in Dell's website T6400 comes as an option. He selected T4200, and now before I set my hands on the new laptop I would like to find out if those processors make much difference in performance and power consumption.

Thanks!
 

A:Pentium Dual Core T4200 vs.Core 2 T6400

Core 2 Duo is better in my opinion other people might argue they opposite or that they are the same.

I have a dell with Pentium Dual Core and another with Core 2 Duo, same amount of RAM, pretty much the same computer all around. The Core 2 seems to run faster and cooler.

But thats just me

I am trying to Upgrade my Protege M750 with Intel? C?2 Duo processor T6670.
The Upgrade starts but after while I got message Processor not supported.
Any explanention why it is happened as even older processors are supported

A:Intel® Core™2 Duo processor T6670

Perhaps 32-bit Windows 10 will run on it but not 64-bit?
Run coreinfo.exe from Microsoft sysinternals to see what features the processor has.

To run x86 Windows 10 you need NX, PAE, and SSE2
To run x64 Windows 10 you also need CMPXCHG16B and other 64-bit extensions

Ok, let me begin by saying I'm not an expert on the computer by any stretch of the word.
That being said, I've been having a problem with an update that Windows Update has been TRYING to install on my computer for at LEAST a month.
Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 (KB936181)
pops up many times a day and it will SAY that it is installing (or that it has been installed) but then a few minutes later POP! There it shows up again. I've tried turning off my anti-virus (Norton 360) and installing it, and nothing works. I have LITERALLY tried installing this thing over 100 times.
Can anyone help me?

For the past 2 days, its alerting me Microsoft XML Core Services(MSXML) 4.x needs to be updated.

So, when I clicked on it it, I went to the following page:
Download Microsoft Core XML Services (MSXML) 6.0 from Official Microsoft Download Center

I installed the script few days back & it showed success but still I have this warning. When, I again opened to check in details, I noticed in the MS page that..





Quote:
System Requirements

Supported Operating System
Windows 2000 Service Pack 4, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1, Windows XP Service Pack 1, Windows XP Service Pack 2



There's no W7 in there, huh ?


Looking down further,






Quote:
To install MSXML 6.0 you must have Microsoft Windows? Installer 3.1 (MSI 3.1) or higher on your computer. If you are running Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1) you already have the correct version. For other operating systems you may need to upgrade. Please see the Windows Installer 3.1 knowledge base article for details.


How do I know I have Windows Installer in my system or not & it shows the same supported OS details with no mention of W7


I would appreciate some assistance on this regard, whether its a false alarm by my software or am I really missing something down here ?


That must be this one you're heading for...:

A:Update for XML Core Services

I suggest that you read the description before you decide whether you want to omit or not.

Personally, I would say that it should be installed because it's a critical update...and then I would move on.

If I chose not to install something because there might be problems...I don't think I would ever have acquired a computer. If you think systems and Win XP have "problems", you probably ought to be transported back to 1996-1997 (my first system), when systems were much more expensive, more buggy, fewer options...and less was known about malware and system security.

A:AMD A4-5000 "Quad Core" vs Intel Core i3-4005U Dual Core

Hmm, I guess you should read some reviews. But just from the specs the AMD has 6 GB ram instead of 4. Has a DVD burner where the Intel shows no optical drive. It only has W8 8.0 where the Intel has 8.1. But some people may prefer 8.0.

Read reviews. See how each performs. If you don't wish to use it to burn DVD then the optical drive, or lack thereof may not matter to you.

Edit: Oh, and the AMD is about $80 cheaper.

hi again guys, just been through a lenghty prosess on here trying to sort out a bsod. in the end i had to get hold of gigabyte for a unreleased alpha version of the bios. @bios FDa

my specs
-windows 7 home premium 64bit sp1
-GA-78LMT-S2P rev 4.0 FDa
-ATI 6570 1gb graphics card catalist 12.8
-AMD FX-4170 quad core 4.2ghz

now the problem is, after i installed the new bios, my cpu is now showing 2.82ghz instead of the 4.2ghz and i dont know how to fix it.

before bios update
cpuz is also saying it is now a AMD fx-4170 quadcore processor black edition 4.2ghz
AMD vison engine controll centre 4.2gzh
windows is showing it as a 2.82ghz

after bios update
cpuz is also saying it is now a AMD fx-4170 quadcore processor (wheres the black edition gone?) and showing 2.8ghz
AMD vison engine controll centre dosnt even show my cpu anymore.
and windows is showing it as a 2.82ghz

A:AMD Fx quad core prosessor after bios update

Your MB is not designed for a 125W processor. Gigabyte played the same game with rev 3.1 by issuing a BIOS update to allow use of some Bulldozer processors.
My theory is that your MB is under clocking your processor because of its inherent 95W limit.
If it were me, I would send the board back and get a board that was designed, from the get-go, for the Bulldozer processor.

A:Microsoft Core Services MSXML 4 update to 6

Are you responding to an out of date alert form Secunia PSI?
See...
http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/15049/update_msxml_4
Secunia will flag msxml 4  it as out of date because it is now end of life. msxml4 will have no more updates, therefore (barring proof of a vulnerability) there is no way to know whether or not it is now a security issue - hence the Secunia warning..
 
Installing msxml6 will no upgrade msxml4 but will install alongside it. The one question not answered in that thread is what is likely to break on installing mxsml4. You may well have some applications dependant on it.
 
I reluctantly chose to whitelist msxml4 in Secunia after checking I was on the latest available version (4.30.2117.0)

I see they have the new core i7 series for laptops?

1. How many cores to they have?

2. Why are all the processors capped @ 1.6ghz?

A:Core i7 For Laptop?

They have "8" cores Though it's really 4 x 2 (Hyperthreading)

If they are really capped then it's probably so that they don't burn the battery down in 15 minutes or melt-down from excessive heat inside.

It is funny how there are tons and tons of i3 laptops and several i7 but i5's are somewhat scarce. i3 is the chip that is supposed to be used for things like laptopps but then there are people that want the best of the best and have to have an i7 (not realizing that it might as well not even have a battery if it was running at 3Ghz)

Hi, after a long absence from this forum, I have hit a problem with Windows update on a clean install of W7 Pro with SP1.
I have spent quite a while scouring the net with re loads etc until I found KB3102810 which seems to fit the symptoms.
After installing this I have been able to install 200+ updates & all seems good - I did have to abort at no 119 when it stuck, but a reboot and off it went again.
Obviously no guarantee, but it did the job for me.

I have Windows Update set to download updates & notify me before installing. There are currently two updates pertaining to MSXML Core Service [972688 & 973687] and I followed the links to the kb articles. According to KB973687 "Prerequisites: To apply this update, you must have MSXML 3.0 or MSXML 6.0 installed. "
According to Add/Remove Programs I have MSXML 4.0 SP2 on my WinXP tab ed SP3. So my conclusion is that I should NOT install 973687. Is there some other article or info re 973687 that I don't know about?

A:MSXML Core Service Update 973687 Confusion

If Windows Update is offering you install options, they should be right for your computer and if not, they will probably fail.Turn off Automatic Updates, temporarily, do a manual check, choose Custom, not Express, see if you get the same result.It can sometimes be helpful when you know what other people have installed, so this is from my Add/Remove list:MSXML 4.0 SP2 (KB925672) 2.56 MBMSXML 4.0 SP2 (KB927978) 2.56 MBMSXML 4.0 SP2 (KB936181) 2.62 MBMSXML 4.0 SP2 (KB954430) 2.67 MBMSXML 4.0 SP2 (KB973688) 2.77 MBMSXML 4.0 SP2 Parser and SDK 1.28 MBMSXML 6.0 Parser (KB933579) 1.31 MBYou can Google for info on what they're all about - too technical for me, all I do know is that versions 3.0, 4.0 and 6.0can happily co-exist, no idea why I have 4 and 6 only, nor am I bothered, either. If I needed version 3.0, I expectI would have encountered problems by now.Maybe someone else will pitch in, now I've bumped your post.If you want an independent check for necessary updates/hotfixes, the following 2 FREE programs are very useful:1. MS Baseline Security Analyzer; scans your system, tells you what's missing and offers downloads to run or save. ver 2.1.1http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en.It's also very informative generally, checks many other things.2. Belarc Advisor is a useful tool, for a really detailed profile of your computer; hardware, software, MS Hotfixes, product keys, software licences etc. It will tell you if any updates/hotfixes are missing.http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html(Best things in life are free, except computers and motorcycles).

I have a new Vista, and in the View Available Updates window I keep getting "Update for XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 (KB98133)". I click to update, and it shows that it has been updated properly. In fact, in the View Update History panel, this update shows as having been installed correctly.

But the prompt keeps appearing. I have researched this, tried a couple of the suggestions to fix it, but to no avail.

Can someone help me either fix or eliminate this annoying prompt. I have been unable to find out exactly what this service pack does in the first place.

Thanks.

I'm using a Lenovo ideapad u530 touch, and it has an i7. From what I have read, i7 is supposed to be powerful (granted, my internal computer knowledge is limited...I don't even know if there is a core higher than i7 (I assume there is)). Yet, I still suffer from a lot of low fps. The max I get in games is 30. This laptop can run GTA with 30fps, but it fluctuates. When I try to record and play, it gets far worse. My graphics card is an NVIDIA GeForce GT 730m.

Should I actually be getting better fps in games (am I doing something wrong?), or is it simply because laptops are not meant for gaming?

(note, I never have issues with my laptop overheating. It does get hot, but never enough to overheat)

I just bought a new laptop with a Core i5 450M but the thing is that when i turn on the computer the boot time is okay but when i open any program like opera(browser) after the start up.. it takes time, like maybe 3-4 sec
I mean it doesnt open straight away when i click.
Afterwards, everything opens quickly without much wait. Is it that the first time u open any program it takes time and then next time its very quick?
Is this normal?
Secondly, how can i see the number of cores that are working while i am using the computer?

Any help would be highly appreciated.

A:New Core i5 Laptop is not that fast after start up

All four cores/threads will be running at the same time, unless you changed something in MSconfigs boot tab, which you shouldn't do. Press ctrl+shift+esc to open the task manager and go to the performance tab. It will show four spaces for CPU usage history.

I'd be willings to bet the computer came with a lot of bloat ware, which should be removed through programs and features in control panel. Remove any thing that says trial version or anything else you don't want/need. If it came with McAfee, it needs to be removed immediately and replaced with Microsoft Security Essentials or Avira. To understand why McAfee should be removed, just look at the recent threads about it in the Security section of the site.

Beyond those steps you can also use our tutorial on how to Optimize Windows 7.

Doing an image search on google for "HP dv6-2150us motherboard" gives images that seem to show a CPU socket on the board. I guess you'll also have to check HPs website to see if they list BIOSs supporting other CPUs on that laptop/motherboard. You'll only be able to upgrade to whatever the maximum supported CPU via the HP BIOS is.

Quite often when shutting down a program, the process will suddenly decide it would rather not quit, and sky rockets up to about 50% of the clock cycles of the machine (this may be directly related to the fact that it's dual core). Sometimes many of them do it, causing other legitimate processes to have issues fighting for resources. Also, it appears to happen very often in the face of power management events--such as unplugging the AC adapter or plugging it back in--but this may just because several processes are launched when that happens, I'm not sure.

It's a very strange problem; I'm not even sure how I would search for its solution, which is why I'm here.

Hi fatwalletguy , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Ideally it would be best if we use the machine number to verify the details of the machine listed on the sticker or check it here . (just keep your serial number confidential).
 
Upgrade checker can help provide information for recommended upgrades but OEM system have its own whitelist as controlled by the BIOS. Therefore , it would always suggest to check it first with the manufacturer .
 
Update us soon as convenient.

Hey all, I would like to make my laptop a bit more powerful by adding a new processor (I've already upgraded my RAM). It's a Compaq Presario CQ62. Would anyone know whether an i5 or i7 would fit it?
Thanks in advance.

You cannot change a CPU in a laptop. You have to buy a completely new laptop.

I have the HP beats special edition laptop. Processor model is: AMD A10-7300 APU with Radeon R6 Graphics 1.9 GHz, 4 MB cache. Is this processor safe to change this setting on?

A:Is it safe to change CPU core setting in msconfig on HP laptop?

Use Task Manager, Performance tab and click on Open Resource Moniter at the bottom, see how many of the 4 cores are showing. Could be if all 4 cores are showing you may not want to limit the CPU to a lesser number of cores which I've found will usually affect performance.

Microsoft indicates it has the new HP Stream 14 quad core 6400t with four BeatsAudio speakers notebook and that it is "Signature Edition."

Since Microsoft and Amazon are selling for about the same price of $299, the removal of trialware bloat in the Signature Edition looks like it makes it the better buy.

Help please, anybody out there who may have an answer why my above mentioned laptop, is dead.

Purchased in 2006 I was so pleased with it, however after about 9 months the power button seemed not to work on every ocassion whilst powering up, and sometimes took several blows on the switch before getting this to work. (Not very techy I know).

This went on for several weeks until it finally stopped altogether and now is as dead as a doorknob, hasnt worked in over 7 months, and I dont got a clue why!

Could it be a battery fault, cant afford a replacement, the power button registers charging when plugged in, but when battery removed and plugged in, nothing shows.

Any ideas anyone, please, I love my puter but am very sad it busted.

Thanks everyone, any help would be much appreciated.

My wife is upgrading her laptop as a requirement for her job. Her employer has suggested the Sony core i3-330UM 13.3 inch laptop for about $800-900 USD. The surprising thing is that this machine has no optical drive, according to the specs I checked at 2 different sites. Other than downloading, how does one add software to such a machine? I guess you could buy an external usb drive, but this sounds so crazy I must be missing something.

Hi,

I'm buying a new computer with Vista home premium (32 bit), and I can't decide whether I should get a 2.4 quad core or a faster dual core (since it's cheaper).

I've searched about this but all the results I've got were from 2007, so I'm not sure if things changed much now.

So what do you think? will I benefit from the additional cores? or shall I go with faster dual cores?

Hi, Currently I'm using a dual core 6850 and I'm thinking about buying a quad core. I have a PSU of 500 W as spare.

Can i replace the CPU to a Quad Core without changing the cooling system?

A:replace dual core CPU by quad core what about heatsink? in Mini Tower 755 Optiplex

heinflhs
These are the specs of the spare PSU. Aren't they better than the original Dell PSU?
That power supply is ATX and not EPS12V
Better is not the issue.  Dell power supplys are 80 percent efficient not 70 percent ATX.  The -5v rail is an issue as well as this may cause a motherboard fire or damage your system.  Its a dead giveaway that this is a power supply from 1990 to 2000.
What current is on which rails is not trivial. There is a single 12V RAIL on that unit and its max is 17A
EPS 12V units have multiple rails of 12V @ 18 amps each.  MAX Power on the 12V rails is 264w not 204w
That unit has a lot more on the 5V and 3.3V rails at the expense of the 12V rails and CPU 4 pin connector. So no that spare unit is not likely to work well if at all.

Recommended update or replacement is EVGA 750B1

Hey all,
I have some proprietary software that works great on a single-core processor. When I try to run it on a dual-core or above, the software loads, works once, and then messes up.

The software uses modems to dial out to our payphones. We found a work-around by turning off one processor in the bios, but then, what's the point of having a dual-core processor.

Please help. The software is doing this on Windows XP.

Hello friends,
I m very eager to know that whats the actual difference between a Core 2 Duo processor and a Pentium Dual Core processor, other than their proceesing architecture?

According to most benchmarking sites including Tom's Hardware, Core 2 Duo E4300 or 6300 performs better than Pentium Dual Core 820 in almost all benchmarks.....whereas C2D E4300 or E6300(1.8 and 1.86 Ghz respectievely) are having MUCH lower clock speeds than Pentium D 820(2.8Ghz). Why like this???

I have 2 systems, one with C2D E4300 1.86 Ghz and another(from which I am writing this thread) is Pentium D 820 2.8Ghz. But I dont see any MUCH performance difference in reality, although in multi-tasking and gaming C2D system still performs better.

Can anybody please explain me in details.....
Thanks in advance.

A:Why Core 2 Duo outperforms Pentium Dual Core even when C2D has lower clock Speed??

The Core 2 Duo doesn't share the same architecture as the older NetBurst architecture of the Pentium D, which is also shared by the Pentium 4. The Pentium D is effectively a pair of Pentium 4 CPUs on one die. The Core 2 Duo architecture allows for a lot more processing to be done in one cycle, hence more information can be pushed in, say, 1 million cycles by the Core 2 Duo than the Pentium D. As for 'reality', there obviously won't be much difference when both systems are used for stuff like playing music etc. But the real differences will show up when you tax them, such as when playing an HD video without a video card supporting HD-decoding where the Core 2 Duo will be able to process information much more quicker than the Pentium D and so you will have a smoother image. Check on Wikipedia for more in-depth details.

A:What would be the best motherboard for a Intel Core i5 3.4 GHz Quad-Core (BX80637I53570K) Processor?

The CPU you want is the i5 3570K. That runs on the socket LGA 1155. When you are on a budget, any mid range mobo will suit your needs. Use the savings from the mobo towards a better HDD or even an SSD. You will also need a GPU.

I would recommend the ASUS P8Z77-V LK motherboard. As for RAM, 8GB is enough. As for the HDD, 1TB is great. I recommend the WD Caviar Black 1TB HDD.

Make sure you can get in a GPU.

Out of those 3, the E6300 is the best. Conroe's new architecture is so efficient, that easily outperforms Netburst based CPU´s (P4, PD, Celeron D), and even manages to outperform AMD CPU's.

You can see by yourself HERE. All Conroe CPU's perform excellent. And you can overclock them very easily, and that way, your 1.8GHZ Conroe overclocked to 2000-2400 MHZ will completely trash the other CPU's.

Hi,
I have two laptops made by the same manufacturer and same year, but one is a dual core laptop with an SSD harddrive and the other is a quad core laptop with a regular hard drive. Both laptops run Windows 8.

I would like to transfer my programs and files from the dual core to the quad core. However, obviously the quad core has different hardware.

I am wondering if I simply remove the SSD from the dual core and put it into the quad core (replacing the quad's primary hard drive with the SSD) and simply boot up the quad core, would that be sufficient? Will the quad core recognize the hardware mismatch and automatically correct the drivers, while keeping my programs and files?

Or is there some other, efficient way to make the transfer? I really want to avoid having to reinstall all my programs.

Thank you

A:Transfer programs and files from Dual Core to Quad Core

There are a lot of third party tools designed to move a Windows installation to new hardware. I prefer using native Windows tool Sysprep for this, mainly because the method is the one and only Microsoft supports and recommends but also because it has never failed me.

The method is described in this tutorial on our sister site the Seven Forums and works also with Windows 8: Windows 7 Installation - Transfer to a New Computer - Windows 7 Help Forums. Method One in tutorial would be ideal for you for moving the SSD to new computer.

Read the information and warnings in the beginning of the tutorial carefully, especially the warning about Windows needing to be reactivated is important. Come back if you have any questions.

I have running TDA-ThinkorSwim Investing software which experiences periodic performance issues, which reeves the fan or Hard disk then locks up all performance until the TOS performance issue is acknowledged.  TOS uses an internal 7.0 Java.  typical
CPU usage is 30-45% but I have seen CPU surging usage as high as 119% with frequency at 132%.  Processing seems to halt, graphics halt or are severely retarded at best.  Using Speedfan software Seeing CPU temps. peak at 85C or 185F.

Hey guys. I joined today because I'm deciding between two laptops and I thought I could use your help.

The laptop will be used for everyday use for the most part but I also play World of Warcraft. The game recommends at least 1g of RAM but most users suggest more. The Acer has more RAM but only a single processor. Any suggestions?

Toshiba - Satellite Laptop with Intel® Celeron® Processor:

Processor: Intel Celeron

Processor Speed: 2.2GHz

System Bus: 800MHz

Cache Memory: 1MB on die Level 2

System Memory (RAM): 2GB

Type of Memory (RAM): DDR2

Hard Drive Type: SATA (5400 rpm)

Computer Hard Drive Size: 250GB

Acer - Aspire Laptop with AMD Athlon? Single-Core Processor

Processor: AMD Athlon?

Processor Speed: 1.6GHz

System Bus: 667MHz

Cache Memory: 512KB on die Level 2

System Memory (RAM): 3GB

Type of Memory (RAM): DDR2

Hard Drive Type: SATA (5400 rpm)

Computer Hard Drive Size: 160GB
 

A:Toshiba Laptop with Intel Celeron or Acer with AMD Athlon Single-Core Processor?

both of those computers are pretty slow... and single core. the Toshiba is the better buy but the link is dead so you might be out of luck with that anyways. i don't play wow so i can't tell you what i would recommend for hardware. i will just go ahead and make the suggestion to buy something with a Core2Duo, 2GB RAM and a more high-end onboard video adapter for games. the more dedicated video power the better.

Hi

Just wondering what if any problems i will get installing the AMD DC optimizer into my AMD 4000 single core pc .. i hope to get a dual core CPU early next year , i found the optimizer program in the single core part of AMDs diver down loads as well as the dual core page so i thought maybe it might benefit my PC as well .( bet im wrong as always ) .

Thanks
Rich

Single core proc's don't need it so don't bother installing it. If you installed it then simply uninstall it.

just received new online purchase PC ordered with core2duo E5400 2.8Ghz and instead has pentiumdualcore E6500 2.93Ghz. Is this an improvement or perhaps E5400 not available and is one better than the other eg. speed and reliability? Thanx I'm a Newbie.

Think you made out pretty well on this deal, in addition to the higher cpu clock you also have a faster front side bus.

I have a Pentium D dual Core 820 2,8 GHz on my Dell E510. 1 GB RAM and Radeon XT 1600 Video card. It constantly freezes during game play(Planetside) Four sessions with Tech support have me nowhere. Can I replace processor with a fast single core on the same motherboard?

Title says it all. Before I installed Hyper-V, Windows shows all 8 threads. . . After, only 1, and VMs were definately sluggish. Has anyone else had this issue or know how to fix it? This Windows 8 pre-release would otherwise be perfect for me as it's the only way I can have Hyper-V AND my internal mobile broadband card fully functional at the same time...

Thanks in advance.

A:Core i7 w/7989 M3 x64 only shows as 1 core after Hyper-V installed???

Welcome aboard, Joey

Actually I have never used hyper V ..... I use VMWare for my visualization needs . There is a settings menu by which I am able to fit the number of processors and number of cores per processor for the guest os . I guess hyper V also have such a setting .

Moreover, in VMWare, you are to install VMWare Tools to make the vm run flawlessly, and it makes mouse integration and network etc drivers workable in the guest . Is there such an option in Hyper V ? If so , do it .

Since I couldn't get specs on the AMD Turion in terms of cache, etc. (the Intel one in the title is 2M Cache, 2.20 GHz, 800 MHz FSB) I couldn't figure out which is the better processor.

Does anyone know? Is there also a website I can reference that can compare them?

since i personally prefer amd, id go with amd.
