I have an Emachines Laptop M6809 that has the original cpu in it (AMD Ahtlon 64 3200, socket 754). I was wondering if the AMD 64 ATHLON M 3700+ 2.4GHZ 1MB 754 AMN3700BKX5BU CPU could replace the 3200? If it can, whatelse would I have to do to the computer to make this work. I have already increased the HD and ram.
While it is physically possible to upgrade to a faster socket 754 Athlon 64, you need to realize that the faster the CPU, the more heat it will produce. Since you cannot upgrade the heatsink fan in a laptop, you run the risk of overheating your laptop.
