    Alternative?

    G'day lads, it's been a long time...

    I just inherited a mate's dead P20 Toshiba lappy. I think I have the problem isolated to a dead cpu. The processor is a 3.0GHz Socket 478 (pin) P4 with an bus speed of 800MHz. The I.D. number of the processor is SL6WK.

    I can score a couple of Socket 478 Celerons cheap for a test, but one runs at a bus speed of 400Mhz and the other at 533MHz. I'm a bit lame when it comes to compatibility and bus speeds. Will either of these processors work in this situation (yeah, I know they'll be slower) until I can get a hold of a 3.0?

    Hello Rob,
    Yes, it certainly HAS been a while ^_^.

    It depends on your motherboard, and more particularly, the chipset the mobo uses.
    These laptop manufacturers often use varying motherboard manufacturers, however still maintaining (and marketing!) the same chipset model.

    You're uses a springdale says my search, and I recall springdales supporting from 533 MHZ up.
    HOWEVER, the motherboard may be a limiting factor even if the chipset supports this.

    You'll have to get the motherboard model number somehow for one to be sure.

    This page will help you with that if you ever decide to (if you havent already), it has information on how to properly dissasembly your laptop, as well as how(where) to get the model number of your particular motherboard.

    Hope this helps.a
    I'm not here very often anymore - no time.
    But you can hit me up on messenger if anything.

    Take care.

    Grimmo,

    Many thanks for the reply.

    I was able to test the cpu by slapping it in another 478 socket 'mudder board. The board bios wasn't upgradeable for the 3GHz cpu, but it was able to run it at a slower fsb. As it has turned out, the cpu is ok, but the lappy mother board is "cactus."

    Thanks again, good to see you're still up and about 'ol friend.

    Rob
