I have just upgraded my Compaq V2555US from Sempron 3000+ 1.8GHz to Turion ML-40 2.2Ghz. It took about less than 1 hour to finish the job and the new CPU was recognized by BIOS (F.27), Windows XP and Windows Vista.

I just benchmarked with Sisoft Sandra and the results are as follows:



The score for CPU in Vista increased from 3.7 to 4.1 (not too bad)

CPU temperature:
Idle: 51-53C (at 800MHz)
Gaming: 62-65C (2.2GHz)

Although the change in benchmarking was just 18%, I think the new CPU was quite powerful in running graphic processing applications. With Sempron, I couldn't use Vista's Windows Media Center because it was slow and lagged. But with ML-40 the program run quite smoothly.

And $86 for the chip was a worthwhile upgradation.

I'm looking for memory. Memory manufacturers sayDR PC2700 . CL=2.5 . Unbuffered . NON-ECC . DDR333 . 2.5V . 128Meg x 64. I have 2x512 and want Two 1GB. It is probably easy, but I'm confused. I thought it would be cheap to do but these specs are expensive. Can I use other specs to find a bargain?

As long as it is a 200pin DDR PC2700/3200 or even a PC2100 SODIMM non ecc, it should work fine in your system. The other specs dont necessarily need to be an exact match since memories will find a match and both sticks will work at the same settings. Just make sure you get some good quality RAM and run memtest86 to test the memory after installation.

There could be some BIOS issues with the MT series but FWIW it should work and at most from what I can remember people had to use a third party utility like RAM for power management.

The ML/MT's are single core only and the TL series wont work in the MB which support them and vice versa.

Do you want to backup your DVD collection to Blank Disc or your computer in ISO file in case of losing or damaging them accidently one day.
A popular application called DVD Decrypter lets you copy an entire DVD onto your computer's hard drive, and it bypasses any copy protection mechanisms that would make duplicating a store-bought DVD otherwise impossible. The only problem is that new copy protection algorithms are frequently being created, and this application hasn't been updated since 2005.
For that reason you could use Tipard [url=http://tipard.com/dvd-cloner-6.html]DVD Cloner 6[/url] or Tipard [url=http://tipard.com/dvd-cloner-6-for-mac.html]DVD Cloner 6 for Mac[/url]. They can copy an entire movie to the hard disk while removing all traces of copy protection (CSS, RC, RCE, APS, UOPs and Sony ARccOS) and are frequently updated, and best of all they are not hard to use.
How to clone DVD on Windows:
Firstly download Tipard [url=http://tipard.com/download/dvd-cloner-6.exe]DVD Cloner 6[/url].

1. Put the DVD you want to copy in the DVD drive of your computer. Click "File" button to add DVD. 2. Select the "Target" which type you want to clone your DVD and where to save your copy. 3. Select "Full Disc" or "Main Movie" to copy your whole DVD or just some chapters. 4. Start to copy.
How to clone DVD on Mac:
Firstly download Tipard [url=http://tipard.com/dvd-cloner-6-for-mac.html]DVD Cloner for Mac[/url].

1. Put the DVD you want to copy in the DVD drive of your computer. Click "Source" button to add DVD. 2. Select the "Target" which type you want to clone your DVD and where to save your copy. 3. Select "Full Disc" or "Main Movie" to copy your whole DVD or just some chapters. 4. Start to copy.
Backing up your DVD's has never been so easy! But remember, the backups are only used for yourself.
