Hello Everyone!

 

Thank you a head of time for all of your effort on my behalf!

 

THE QUESTION:

I want to update my computer from AMD A6 3420M  vs A10 4600M. Will that be possible?

 

What I have done:

cpuboss.com, cpu-world, etc. I couldn't tell for sure.

 

The Computer:

In attached document. Toshiba Satellite L775D-S7108

 

Thank you very much!

Hi LIOTB,

 

The 3420m uses the FS1 socket, but so does the 4600m, but with the caveat that 4600m also uses the FS1r2 socket type.  It really depends on the motherboard because even though FS1 and FS1r2 uses the same chip layout, the FS1 socket will not accept newer FS1r2 chips.

 

You may be in luck because FS1 was not around for very long, and there is even less support out there.  Do you happen to have a CPU compatability list with your machine.  If not, do you know the model of the the motherboard?

Hello GrymReaper,

 

thank you for the insight, that clarifies one concern I had about the socket. And thank you for the follow-up.

 

Here are the answers to your questions:

 

1. The manual only lists one processor.

2. The motherboard: Part #: H000034200
Laptop Motherboard: MOTHERBOARD ASSEMBLY Note: Main Board 0M AS UMA USB 2.0 LAN 20AS PCBA 1 69N0Y3M1UB01P

Just checking in to see if anyone has any ideas. Again thank you!

 

@Chris Cosgrove - Thank you for moving this to the right forum. I didn't see it when I was looking for the right place to post this.
