Hi i have a samsung np305v5a-a04dx running an amd a6 processor with 6gb ram and its taken quite a hammering the last 2-3 years, screen is cracked down to one usb port from 3, the battery wont last more than half hour and the charging point needs replacement.

The question is i've been looking at a cheap replacement around the £200 mark as i don't use it for more than web browsing, ms office and other light tasks so was looking for a replacement but the specs on these machines are poor. So i was looking for advice if i could use the processor and ram from the samsung to boost a new machine or is it just worth repairing it?

I need a windows machine as have a mac and some of typing programs etc that i use aren't cross compatible.

Any help on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

No, you can't really use your old laptop's cpu in a new laptop. You could potentially use some of the ram if it's compatible and you have empty slot(s) on the new laptop, but it would probably not work in most laptops - you would have to research it.



With that much wrong with it, it's not worth repairing.
