CPU Upgrade path for a GateWay GT5468...
Posted on 2011-03-19
Hello Et al,
I am working on a Gate Way GT5468 and it really looks like the CPU chip is fried. The CPU chip is a:
Pentium Dual Core E2160 Processor
Socket is a 775 Type
I chatted with GW and found out that this CPU is no longer available and finding it is going to be a pain (My words not GW's). Before 'dialing for dollars' I thought I would run this by the experts and see if anyone knew of any other options in the way of upgrading the CPU to a faster model.
Does anyone have any experence with this?
Is there a newer 775 Socket CPU that can replace this older chip?
Inquiring minds would like to know...
