Hi!, I'm new to the forum and have a simple brief question. Is it possible to take parts from a dell Inspiron n5510 and place them in a Dell Inspiron n7110 just curious. I'm aware that it might be an extremely nooby question but am currently in a bind thanks!

Apart from possibly the RAM and the hard drive there is probably little you can swap around between these two computers, after all one is a fair bit bigger than the other.

 

What was it you wanted to swap over, or what is it you are having a problem with ?

More cores perhaps? if that's possible again I'm a noob just happy to have figured out the hard drive ahaha. Thanks for your help though its greatly appreciated.

 

The best gamer experience I can have with what I have to work with more or less. An increase in GPU's? hah thanks in advance

The problem you have is that both these computers are laptops which have highly integrated construction totally unlike a desktop in a standard tower. If I want to change a graphics card all I have to do is take off the side and unplug one and replace it - laptops just don't work like that !

 

It is very likely that the graphics components in both these computers are physically part of the mobo, you would need detailed information to verify that, but that is the normal situation. They use different processors, one an i3 and the other an i5. Basically with a laptop you are stuck with the specification it had when you bought it.

 

You could try downloading the respective manuals for them from the Dell website and see what possibilities they offer.

Laptops are extremely limited in cross mobo/upgrades, and there were only a few that I was able to do when I had a brick a mortar shop. For one thing IRQ/device assignments may alter and also your int/gpu and bolt ups and O/S calibration to the O/S OEM string. You best bet is to email Dell about it but NOT the normal channels you're going to want to speak to tier 2 or 3 techsupport.
