|Review of postings for Overclocking Pentium 4M (the latest posts first)

|Dude, just to make sure... you did check all the options that your
notebook's bios has to offer, right?

|Ok, this is the last post on this subject.
I finally got around to pin modding the CPU.
I removed the pin completely since it was easier than painting it.
Well, no change. Same speed, no overclock.
No matter what I try, NOTHING. I mean, even the *%(#* Pin Mod,
which works with every other computer in the *#($* planet, does
not work with the *$(#@! 9100!!!
Screw it. I'm out of ideas.

|I deleted my last 4 posts since they had so many inaccurate comments.
I have used SetFSB and even communicated to the writer on a
few occasions. He send me 2 different prototype programs.
Both failed, He advised mt to resign myself. This computer
is made specifically not to overclock.
So you know what that means?
The Tecra 9100 has a Pentium 4M Northwood core. This means that it
is still a Pentium 4 and it is a 478 pin socket just like the desktops
without the heat spreader. The Pentium M is COMPLETELY different.
It has 479 pins but is really a heavily modded Pentium 3 core and it is
NOT AT ALL compatable with Socket 478 (looks the same but is wired
Pentium M = Centrino
Pentium 4M = Pentium 4.
Fact of the matter is, a P-M 1.4ghz is probably faster than a P-4M 1.8ghz.
My only other options are:
1. Buy a 2.2ghz Pentium 4M on Ebay
2. Research or discover some sort of hardware mod.
I have NOT given up yet!
I recently found a pinmod to change the FSB from 100 to 133 which
would make my 1.8ghz oc to 2.4ghz.
It may be a month or so before I have the time (and courage) to try this.
I'll report back (as usual) for the final results.

|Hm...if its Socket 479 its a Centrino Notebook ? if yes, you can download "SetFSB" for ACER 1692...

|It is a socket 479. It's really a heavily modified Pentium3.
They are known to be very good overclockers. I can't seem
to find a way to OC the damn thing. I'm still looking for:
1. Pin mod
2. "Wire trick"
3. software mod
4. hardware mod
5. anything else
FSB adjustment by software, doesn't work. Mabie a hardware mod.
I'm still looking for a PLL chip type.
My poor Tecra was dead for a month. a capacitor fell off the I/O board
and killed it. I bought aother Tecra on ebay for parts source so now I
Remember, I'll take ANY suggestions.

|Your laptop is definitive one with an pentium 4 mobile.
With socket 478.
Why not OC it, when it is possible?
I OC my notebook with an DESKTOP P4 and it is not very hotter compared to default clocks.
Check out if the degrees stay stable when OCed, maybe you know the toll MobileMeter.

|A P-M with socket 479 is NO PENTIUM4!!!
A P4-M is a special version of P4 with lower voltage. The P-M has a completely different Core, mot L2 cache (1 oder 2MB), only 100MHz (the new one 133) FSB an so on ....

|Actually, that didn't work. (thanks anyhow)
I DID find the 3rd screw (insert joke here) which was from the bottom
right next to the memory access panel. (who knew?)
Only one chip was visible:
222 TO2 (or T02)
Is this a PLL chip. (I'll be looking up info on google)
Nope, it's NOT a PLL chip (DAMN!).
Back to the drawing board.

|May be you have to push it a little bit down (away from the screen) to get the keyboard out of the chassis but it should be enough to push it only a little bit - be careful, it's a nice notebook

|I tried to take off the keyboard. The keyboard strip was removed and
2 screws removed but the thing didn't want to come out and I wasn't
in the mood to force it out.
More when I find what is holding the center of the keyboard to the
