Hi :) 

One of the commonest problems we get in my shops is people who THINK they can strip a Laptop to its last screw and reassemble it and expect it to still work, even though they have a pile of screws and sometimes parts left in their hands lol....

Dont even think about it unless you are a PRO....

All the best Brett :)

Thanks for your replys, very helpful, I wouldnt attemp to replace the processor myself as my knowledge only goes as far as installing memory which i havent had to do as it came with 8gig installed.

I'm one of those people who take things to pieces and find i have parts left :D

yes, i upgraded to an i5 2520m 2.5ghz and 3.1ghz with turbo boost, i had to download the turbo boost software from intel, I risked changing the cpu myself and it wasnt too hard to do after reading up on how to do it and apply thermal paste properly.

where did you get the 2520m, and how is the performance of the computer now?

as the 2520m is a dual core processor, do you think i could put an i7-2670QM instead? Thats a quad core and thats included in one of the models for the laptop.
