Laptop CPU Upgrade Tags: CPUs Laptops Processors AMD Last response: September 17, 2011 6:52 AM in CPUs Share Neromler September 15, 2011 10:47:23 PM Hello, I wanted to know if I am able to upgrade my laptop's processor into a better one. The one I currently have is from a emachines E627. A AMD TF-20 clocking at 1.6GHZ, and is a single core. I really am not happy with this processor. I really have been wanting to upgrade it to a AMD QL-62 I have from my Compaq Presario CQ-60. The processor on it is 2.0 GHZ Dual-core, my logic says that a dual core is better than a single core. Anyways, I just wanted to know if I am able to upgrade my TF-20 to the QL-62 processor? I am mainly worried about overheating and compatibility (bios/socket), and power concerns, if you need to know anything else, I'll try my best to Info: AMD TF-20 1.6 GHZ http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K8/AMD-Athlon 64 TF-20 - AMGTF20HAX4DN.html AMD QL-62 2.0 GHZ http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K8/AMD-Athlon 64 X2 QL-62 - AMQL62DAM22GG.html Emachines e627 Specs http://support.gateway.com/emachines/Manuals/emachines/...

Also your links dont work :\ | Report abuse Maksym September 17, 2011 6:52:14 AM Ensure that the CPU is not soldered on. In laptops, unless they are from Sager/Clevo, the CPU is soldered on. If you change the CPU, do not forget about changing the fan. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Laptop CPU Upgrade> Related ressources: ForumI want to upgrade cpu laptop dual core p6200 ForumCan I upgrade my laptop CPU ?
