Hi there! I tried to use a T9600 in an Asus K50-IJ (v218) instead of a T4400, to no avail. Since the chipset is compatible, I think it is just some dumb whitelisting in the BIOS which doesn't let me to change the CPU. Do you have modded BIOS-es for this model? The only thing what I've found here is , but that is a K50ID, I am afraid to use it... THanks!
Hi iceheart72,
Asus K50-IJ has Intel GL40 chipset that supports FSB speed 800MHz, but Intel T9600 processor supports 1066MHz bus speed. So them hardware is not compatible. The Maximum T9500 is allowable.
Really? OK, my bad then. I was misled by some comments found on the 'Net. Thanks a lot!
You can read discussion about CPU that supports by this chipset on CPU-Upgrade
So. Now it had been tested with a T9500 - and it didn't start, exactly like before. I am kind of pissed off, since now it really was supposed to work. FYI there are reports for sure of this notebook working with replaced T9xxx CPU's. Do you have any advice on what to do now? :S
Hi guys,

I've already posted about this in , however I think I'd better open a new thread with a possible Notebook + CPU combination in the title.

So, it is ASUS K50IJ, with BIOS version 218, and I'd like to have support for T9500.

Mobo & CPU info:

The mobo has a GL40 chipset. I checked the microcode list, and T9500 is in the list (0676). Could someone take a look, why it doesn't work and what is possible to do now? With the T9500, the notebook doesn't start at all. I am willing to pay a reasonable amount of reward for a tested & working BIOS.
OK, for the record, if someone ends up with Google here: it's been tested with v220 BIOS (from the BestBuy version) which worked with the motherboard, except WLAN, which disappeared. But, T9500 still doesn't work at all. No idea, why since the CPUID is there.

I scrapped the idea of this cpu upgrade.
I ll try the same upgrade as you 2 years ago. I ll keep you in touch about the results. I have exactly the same chipset and Southbridge as you.
