    Buying New Processor


    I was considering getting a processor upgrade, I have an AMD-56 laptop processor, its dual core I believe and its only 1.8 GHTZ! I have seen processors as fast as 5000 mhtz (clocked at) and actual processors at 4.2 ghtz, is there a way I can just buy the new chip and throw it in there or is my motherboard incompatible?

    Updating a processor depends on the motherboard. But, as you are using a laptop, you can't upgrade the processor as they are soldered into the board.

    Sorry buddy. You would be better off purchasing a new laptop rather than attempting to upgrade the one you have.
