Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite M45-S331 Notebook ?

I am wanting to upgrade the cpu to a faster

\015 I am wanting to upgrade my cpu to a faster version on my Toshiba satellite m-45 s331, preferably over 2GHZ, which appears doable. I was trying to determine the compatibility, CPU-Z lists the chipset and southbridge numbers, neither of which register on any of the motherboard compatibility searches. Does anyone know this motherboard's number? Or how I can find it?\015\012Also, CPU-Z says the CPU is socket 479 microPGA. When I opened it up to get the processor number it said #SL86G which on the pentium M site lists it differently, as a microFCPGA. I am a little confused here.\015

Answers :

You dont need to know your southbridge info or anything like that, you just need to know the socket type for the processor. If they make a processor for the socket type, then you can assume it is compatible.
