I bought a "broke" Toshiba Satellite A105-S2101 laptop off ebay that would freeze on the bios loading screen, bought it and found out it was just a bad DVD drive, replaced it and all is well. Except it overheats and shuts off after like 15 min.
It has a Intel Celeron M 420, its a Socket M, the fan works of course, the heat sink is clean, the thermal paste was pretty dry so I ordered some, it'll be here in a few days, but if it still acts up after new paste, would one of the other socket M CPU's better as far as staying cooler, doesn't necessarily have to be faster?
According to cpu-world these are the available Socket M cpus,
- Intel Core Solo
- Intel Core Duo
- Intel Celeron M 400 series
- Intel Celeron M 500 series
- Intel Pentium Dual-Core Mobile
- Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile
I read on a yahoo answers post that Celeron M's are known for getting hot, and even a Core Duo would run cooler?
But the info on the Xpress 200M chipset says it supports "Intel® Pentium® M, Intel® Celeron®, Celeron® M and Intel® Pentium® 4 processors"
THEN a guy at this link says he bought a Core Duo CPU and put it in a similar laptop with the same chipset and it worked, so I dont know what to think? Notebook Review Post
Anyone have more knowlege on this?
I would like to get a Core Duo T2300E if it would work, and if it would run cooler, they have them less than $10 all day long on ebay. I just going to resell the laptop after I get the overheating problem fixed
