Hi,
It depends how confident you are.
Some people are quite happy to fiddle (and laptops are fiddly) themselves and others not.
Remember that you will need to replace the thermal compound between the cpu and the heatsink as well as removing the old compound from the heasink.
Why are you changing the cpu ?

Do you know what kind of socket the cpu is or how I can find it out?

The link below will give you the specifications for the amilo pi1536.

http://www.fujitsu-siemens.co.uk/Resour ... 133611.pdf

You will notice that there are three processor options with this machine, which option did you go for when you purchased it ?

If you have not already done so, have you considered fitting more RAM to the machine instead ?

I am not familiar with this particular machine but the specification would seem to indicate that the on board GPU memory is 128MB, which can be expanded to 512MB using shared memory.
It is only my opinion (and as always happy to be corrected) but I wonder if you should look at these options first before changing the CPU.

Ok in that case and as far as I can tell the cpu you can upgrade to is the T7200.
The link below will get you to an Intel site showing the specifications for this processor.

I hope this is of help to you.
Post back to let us know how you get on.

You can upgrade up to Core Duo T2600 (2,16GHz 2MB cache) or up to Core 2 Duo T7200 (2,00GHz 4MB cache). If you don't upgrade the graphic card, then you can upgrade the processor up to T7200, because the power consumption is higher in T7200 than in T2600.

Intel Core 2 Duo T7200 has a Merom core so it's possible, that T7400 and T7600 would fit. Let us know if somebody check if it's true.

Hi all,
For my pi1536, I finally upgrade to a better CPU (T2050 to T7200), 4 GB ram and change the VGA card to an Ati 4570 (site MXM-upgrade).
HDD was upgraded to a seagate 250gb, 7200rpm.
In order to have 4gb ram, I had to change to bios to alienware m5500 ver 1.19.
Everything works fine except that at the booting, DVI out does not show images on external screen but once windows 7 started, it's very well.
A simple adaptor DVI-VGA gives me the boot screen on the external LCD, an DVI-HDMI adaptor works on HDMI LCD or TV (sound not verified).
The limit memory on i945 is 4GB so windows 7 64 bits only recognizes 3.25Gb.

Hope that helps someone.
Pham Trong.

PS: Now I think about replace the DVD by a second HDD but I'm not sure about the interface (sata or ide). Anyone has an idea?
