processor upgrade for Sony Vaio VGN-FS515E

by petemnk / August 14, 2010 8:09 AM PDT

Hi All,

I am new to this forum and this is my first post. I hope someone out there will be able to help me.

I have the sony Vaio VGN-FS515E and want to upgrade my standard processor to the INTEL MOBILE PENTIUM 780 SL7VB. The processor is quite expensive and i don't want to buy it and it not work..

the laptop was given to me and didn't cost a penny so i wanted to try and upgrade it as much as i could with out buying a new one or spending too much money. the processor is expensive but cheaper than buying a new laptop all together.

i have researched into it quite a bit and have found that the PENTIUM 780 SL7VB is compatible with the chipset, motherboard and socket so i was mainly wandering if there was any other compatibility information, such as power supply or cooler fan, i was missing that someone else may have encountered or be aware of.

any help will be much appreciated..

I wasn't quite sure what specs you needed so please feel free to ask and i'll post what ever you need.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
