Typically, most computer interface are compatible unless you meant of a specific function that was going in between your current setups which may need to be mentioned next time. :thumbup2:

Do you mean you wish to upgrade the processor in your laptop? If you let us know the full model designation of the laptop, we should be able to work out what CPUs it can possibly use.

Not to burst your bubble just yet .. however, most laptop CPU's are soldered onto the motherboard. Thus making upgrading the cpu impossible.  This is not always the case.  But to help you out more It would help if you provided more information about your laptop.. Brand.. Model number..etc..

After removal of the heatsink and fan assembly on the top of the cpu are a series of letters and numbers.  This is most likely an AMD phenom II CPU.  If you get the string of letters and numbers you can plug that into google and look for a replacement CPU.  Looks like this Utuber upgraded his to a quad core N930.

 

Good Luck to you.

Thats what I am trying to find out is which numbers do I use to search for a replacement? I found a few on eBay that said they would work with my laptop but the numbers were different then any on my processor?

Maybe this site will help you .. you could also try giving us the numbers so that we could do a websearch ... which you could perform also.  The numbers will not necessarily match exactly to another chip of the same one.

Thank you. If I did want to upgrade to a better cpu what would I choose?

AMD Phenom II Triple-Core N870 HMN870DCR32GM CPU S1 2.3Ghz

found this one on Amazon, would I be able to upgrade to this?

I don't know much about the processors and there performance Would this be a good upgrade?

or should I just stay with whats in it?

Thank you, I was having some difficulty posting links and such. I think what you want are my laptop specs

but I cannot provide those because my laptop won't boot and that is the reason I am replacing the CPU.

Sorry. The make and model are listed above.
