Mobo ID/Compaq Presario 1255

Postby jiangmm » Wed May 22, 2002 5:01 am

Hi, there,

Can anyone identify the mobo of compaq Presario 1255 laptop? The only fact I know is it uses AMD k6/2-333, a desktop CPU. That's why I wonder I may upgrade the CPU, probably other stuff. Also I need to buy a LAN card,....

Thanks.

I found the QRG but that's completely useless...

This is the dip switch settings area:

Seems to show settings for a 333Mhz and 366Mhz processor only.

It might be possible to iron out the settings for higher chips. I would overclock your current processor with a good heatsink and see what it will come up with.
