I'm new to this, so apologies if I get any of the terminology wrong. During lockdowns I tried to up cycle this old laptop.
I had an old Dell Inspiron 1545 and installed CloudReady last year and it worked ok but did crash sometimes with too many tabs or when accessing my onedrive or other more complex pages.
I have upgraded the processor on the machine to help here to a Intel Core 2 Duo T9800 Processor 2.93GHz Socket P,604,478/N CPU 35W 1066MHz.
I then tried to installed cloudready and each time I go to boot from the USB, it starts to flash then everything turns off.
I have tried adjusting the BIOS to only boot from the USB with no change.
I have also tried formatting and creating a new USB boot and this did not seem to work.
It did seem to boot from the USB only I think for a few minutes, before it crashed again.
The new CPU seems to have fitted in fine as it's showing as the CPU on the system check and diagnostics have not flagged anything with the processor.
I'm very new to this, so any and all help would be well received!
