Equium M40X: Can I upgrade the CPU to Intel Pentium M750
Posted: 09-Jun-2008 20:54

I have Toshiba Equium M40X-149 laptop.
It has a Intel Celeron M 370 processor. Can I mount a Intel Pentium M 750 processor on this mainboard?
The processor is from another laptop Toshiba Satellite M40X-250.

Can anyone help me for this issue?

Thanks a lot.

Hmmm… usually the CPU replacement an upgrade is not possible.
In most cases the BIOS settings don’t match with the new CPU proprieties.
I think that both notebooks Equium M40X-149 and SatelliteM40X-250 were equipped with the same motherboard and possibly it’s the new Intel Pentium M 750 CPU could be supported.

However, this is only a theory and from my own experience it’s always another story to put it into practice.

I would not wonder if your notebook would not boot up after the CPU upgrade or would overheating due to a higher internal temperature.

So everything what you do is at your own risk.
