Alright guys I have has this laptop and I am looking to upgrade it. So far I have


4 gb (laptop originally has 3 gb but i swapped the rams from a dead laptop)


1 tb WD HDD (Laptop came with 320 gb HDD but then the HDD died D:)


AMD Athlon 64 II P360 Mobile (I am looking to upgrade see link below)


Which ones can I get?


Radeon HD 4250 (Would it be possible to upgrade this)


A cooling pad


So basicly what I am looking for is mainly a CPU upgrade because I play Guild Wars 2 (the game isn't taxing on your GPU but it is pretty taxing on a CPU because of how the game was made)

Theoretically, any S1 Socket CPU should work so long as the motherboard can supply the necessary power, however, the motherboard's BIOS may not accept it.  Chances are it probably won't work if the motherboard manufacturer never offered an upgrade to the laptop that included a different CPU.  You also cannot upgrade the GPU in the laptop as those are often soldered onto the motherboard.  Laptops are generally considered to be non-upgradable, most of the parts are not easily, or are impossible, to change.

Personally I look at laptops as sealed systems.  Other than RAM and hard drive upgrades you're very limited due to their designs.  For the time and effort you're probably better off looking for a replacement machine.
