Hi, upgrading the CPU in a laptop is very difficult because you would have to full disassemble the laptop in order to access the CPU but the biggest issue is which CPU the laptop supports. Most laptop manufacturers do not have a list of CPU support and finding a retailer who sells laptop CPU is very difficult.

killerx525, is correct in this aspect. You must also take into account that many laptop manufacturers will solder the CPU onto the socket, and thus make it even more difficult *almost impossible*, to replace or remove the CPU without destroying the rest of the board. On this particular HP computer, I cannot confirm.

Thanks for the reply

I have already made attempts to replace the processor.

In this laptop is not that difficult as it might seem.

so I put the processor i5-480m but this unfortunately didn`t work

Maybe I should write to HP in this case and ask for a list of supported processors

 

(sorry for my english ;)

Are you saying, that you removed the previous CPU and attempted an upgrade? Is the computer not turning on, or? You could have broken some pins on the socket, or if you're lucky, the new CPU does not have compatibility with the motherboard. Does the motherboard socket align to the CPU? I.e, a Haswell CPU must be put into a LGA1150 socket motherboard.

Yes, I was able to spin the laptop to change the processor, Core i5 doesn`t start so I put back P6100, Everything works. This socket is PGA988

Alright, I guess that's a good thing that it still works. It must means the new CPU you installed is not compatible, I'm not sure if HP will be kind enough to give you a nice list of upgrades lol. They probably want you to buy a whole new laptop again. If you had a Dell, everything is soldered, including CPU and RAM, so you have no chance of upgrades on those.

You're right, it's always about sales of new computer :)

But I'll be looking for an answer to my question, maybe I can find it somewhere.

 

have a nice day

Perhaps then, you could upgrade it to any of those then?

For more information, please refer to the following link regarding the upgrade project for Intel® HM55 Express Chipset.
http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-Intel_(chipsets)/HM55_Express.html

I have an ASUS A52JK which also comes with Intel i5 430M CPU, which is shown in the link below:
https://www.asus.com/Notebooks/A52JK/

The same laptop also comes with other types of processor, which are:
1) Intel i5 430M/450M/460M/520M/540M CPU
2) Intel i3 330M/350M/370M CPU
3) Intel Pentium® Dual-Core P6000 CPU

I am thinking of upgrading the CPU of my laptop to Intel i7 940XM or i7 640M. I have checked the TDP and CPU ID for Intel i5 430M, 640M and Intel i7 940XM. The TDP for i7 940XM are higher, which is 55W while the TDP for Intel i5 430M and 640M is 35W. The CPU ID for Intel i5 430M is 20652, the CPU ID for Intel i7 540M is 20655 and the CPU ID for Intel i7 940XM is 106F1.

After reading the successful stories from the first link that I give above (and ignoring the unsuccessful stories tongue.gif ), I feel like I want to go for i7-940XM. If i7-940XM doesn't work, then I will try i7-640M (or lower). If the i7-940XM, works but have overheating problem, then I will try the i7-840QM (or lower).
