Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. You just gave me a little gleam of hope. I've been looking at this junk for hours now.
I went to the driver downloads page of my laptop, clicked on "bios" then "applicable models"
L770D-BT5N1 was the second one on the list.
Surely Toshiba wouldn't switch out the entire mobo for a $40 processor upgrade
P.S. The whole reason why I want to do this is because of the integrated graphics. I wanna do some light gaming (COD 2 & 4, ETC.) The A4 can handle it, but I want a little more power in the graphics department.
On the notebookcheck.net graphics benchmark my A4 (Radeon HD 6480G) is ranked 194 and the A8 (Radeon HD 6620G) is ranked 128. Also I youtubed it and they seem significantly better.
It's $89.99 with free shipping. Wat do?
I already know it's going to be a lot of work because the CPU's on Toshibas are on the bottom of the motherboard with no easy access from the bottom.
