DELL Latitude D520

Last updated on 1 year ago
No such luck nikos. I downloaded the .rar file, extracted the iso and mounted on VirtualBox as I have done many times with Aspire Os and other OS. It won't boot. Skipping the media and the CD/DVD player.
This is version 2.0 I downloaded from Aros-archives.


This is version 2.1 downloaded from Aspire OS web site which is just a link to aros-archives:

Amigamia: That looks right. AspireOS 2,1 is only for real hardware like this laptop.

Hmm that's interesting. Not even the grub starts? I mean I understand it is for specific laptops but I thought the boot into grub was agnostic of the device. The thing is, it wouldn't boot on the Dell D520 either.

I guess I'll be patient and wait for the USB stick :-)
Amigamia: It is from optical disk you try to boot right?

Some times I had to try many times before Grub showed up. If you get some error you can can try to type exit, and you will get to the grub menu.

Why not have some fun for cheap money. For 5 - 10 euro it is easy to find Intel T2400 core2duo cpu on eBay. This is the most powerful CPU used in this laptop. I will try to change it on one of my D520s that got t2300. It should be easy. I bring you the result when I have changed it.[/quote]

I installed T2400 today. Works great. I will put up some pictures and a video about it.
I'm pretty sure I'm wrong about T2400 is the most powerfull CPU for this laptop. I will buy a T7200. That one should be the fastest CPU for this laptop :) It is sweet that the CPU on this laptop is not soldered.
Some pictures of the installation of new CPU.
Nice they not solder the CPU on this laptop. Easy task to change it.
Just remember to add some CPU pasta.


Here is video to show some benchmark after the change.

very nice! Yeah laptops of that generation were easy to upgrade the CPU. I did the same on an IBM A31
Online gaming demo.

nikos! Got my USB stick today. Thank you so very much. I was able to install it after a few attempts to do it the right way. Now I am just waiting for the wireless card so I can download all other software etc.
Cool :) I included some stuff to play with. Tried anything yet.
