Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

@Siema_CoTam my only idea is check if you need to activate the WiFi card somehow. I remember when I replaced the original WiFi card for an Intel 3160 it wouldn't work under Linux at all, and I had to activate it under MS Windows.
I don't remember the exact process, asking Auntie Google might help.

Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

Hi Jasim, trying to answer some of your questions: Im using Lifebook AH-531(i5,4GB RAM). What CPU is living inside your 531? I didn't look up the specs of the i3-6100, but I doubt you'll be able to fit it inside the socket. The most powerful CPUs that fit in the socket are (a) i7-2670QM (3.10GHz, 45...

Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

Welcome, @Ahmedsafian :) I just edited my reply above regarding the SIM card, apparently there is an option. Heat sinks: the metal heat spreader contacts on the regular CPUs in the data sheets is a square, while those on the QM CPUs have a rectangular shape. That means that the heat pipe covers only...

Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

My upgrade so far : :D Nice, well done :) Can i upgrade to intel core i7-2960xm for ah531? The i7-2960XM fits into a FCPGA988 socket, so it looks as if it may be working. The only caution I would like to add is that the i7-2960XM pulls 55W, while the system is designed for 35W CPUs so the i7-2960XM...

Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

Sorry but Open Hardware Monitor requires Mono with WinForms to run on Linux, which would cause more pain than it's worth, and Intel® Power Gadget runs on Mac and Windows only. Here's the output of two runs of auto-cpufreq, which shows that the CPU frequencies vary with the load, within the min/max s...

Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

@Siema_CoTam I am running my AH531 on Linux, so I can only guess what I see on your last screenshot. Running 'sudo inxi -Fmps' in a terminal gives me CPU: Quad core Intel Core i7-2670QM (-MT-MCP-) cache: 6144 KB clock speeds: max: 3100 MHz 1: 1484 MHz 2: 1254 MHz 3: 1607 MHz 4: 1122 MHz 5: 1374 MHz ...

@syn_burz I just ran a check with wavemon, it shows that the Intel 3160 is running at 5180 MHz. No modifications on the antenna.

Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

Hi syn_burz, sorry but I won't be able to help you with that one. What I did was to find a WiFi card that is compatible with Linux. And yes, I remember there was a problem with Bluetooth, but there was plenty of workarounds I found just googling. I would guess if you can find a Windows 7 driver for ...

Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

@aydinozdemirx very impressive, thanks for sharing. Currently my AH531 is sitting on the back shelf, I didn't have too much time lately. I was thinking about attaching two wifi antennas to the casing, similar to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7P4hEcZc3o I have all the parts already, but not ...

Wow! I call my modded Lifebook the Frankenbook, but yours looks like open heart surgery! :lol: What's your next step, liquid nitrogen? :idea: Could you post another photo of the whole bottom of the machine, please? I just realised that there is plenty of space when you remove the fan… Great piece of...
