Unless your manual suggests it can be done, go ahead otherwise, you need techie help in some h/w changes. What appears easy may not be. Plus, most laptop cpus are "soldered-in" and not field replaceable, you need techie help. That's about it...
I was wondering if there is a way to upgrade my CPU from a celeron to a pentium M or any other processor. I have a gateway m320, I opened the slot on the bottom of the laptop and i could clearly see the CPU chip. All i had to do was remove the heat sink and pop out the old CPU and stick in the new one. But i want to make sure that this is OK to do. I have a windoes XP home with 512mb and 40GB hard drive.
