    "If you take a closer look on AMD Duron and AMD Athlon XP processors you will notice only tiny difference: an L2 bridge is not locked on the Duron processor. If you lock it again, everything should work and the processor will have an L2 cache of 256KB"

    how can one do this?
    what tools r needed? (i live in a farm :)) there r no normal computer shops nearby (and i dont have a credit card to order online :((( ), so if u can point to something more accesible itl be great)
    plz heeeelp
    TIA

    The type of paint used to fix the rear window defogger system on cars - it comes in little kits and you should be able to pick some up. It is used to reconnect the traces on the window. This may or may not work for the Duron.

    i tried this mod on a duron i picked up. (Didn't work)
    Here's a page i found on it.

    Duron 1.6

    Didn't do anything, and even made sure that the contact area was exposed before reconnection.

    Maybe it was just bad luck for me.. hehe.. was worth a shot, with it's cache trimmed off it's dog slow and getting the boot for a new 2400+ mobile.

    Good luck, let us know if ya get it to work.

    just remember, the unlock will not work on post 0339 chips. there are some 0345's, i believe, that have not been superlocked but those are few and far between...good luck...
