Laptop CPU Upgrade

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

It's possible i guess, but it seems to be a pain though. Also your links dont work :\

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.
