    Upgrading to New Laptop


    I cracked my display so will be upgrading to a new laptop, I know I've seen it before but I'm looking for the tutorial for moving all my stuff over to my new laptop to include desktop, outlook PST, firefox bookmarks and most settings if possible. I would like to do this with as minimal setup as possible.

    Also, any recommendations on a new laptop with SSD (at least 1tb if possible), 8 gb ram and maybe a i7 processor? Touch screen and small, maybe 14" display would be nice also. I don't do any gaming, mostly web surfing and writing in word.

    PS... I use office 2010, anyway to move my license to the new computer? I'm not looking to pay by the month for Office.

    :)

  3. Video card or RAM need upgrading?

    Memtest: no errors after 10 hrs.
    I'm going to perform the Primetest, later on. Get back to you on that.
    I'm going to take it step by step, guys. I need to find the problem with this current computer. I might have to upgrade some components, so that it is still runnable. As for the new one, yes....i will build on it later. I need to find something decent 'gaming experience', all suggestions appreciated. THanks.

    Upgrading to New Laptop

    Core 2 Duo for laptop CQ40-314TU

    I have found something about CPU Upgrade on the Intel's Website, the manufacturer of my laptop's chipset (GM45 Chipset). Currently, the CPU which this laptop is using (Dual Core T3400) is NOT in this list: Intel® Product Specifications
    The laptop's chipset also support Core 2 Extreme Technology, which I think the latest CPU Technology.
    I have another laptop called Acer Aspire 5572ANWXMi that is using the chipset 945GM which support the T7600 (like you suggested) and it is in this list: Intel® Product Specifications
