Hi, I'm thinking of upgrading my i3 330M HM55 chipset cpu on my laptop which is running at i think 25W(according to zcupid) to a i7 or i5 which run at around 55W.
My problem is that im not sure if my power supply and battery can handle that load.
i3 330M cpu
2sticks of 2gb ram (4gb total)
Ati Radeon premium graphics (ill be more specific if need be)
15inch 1080x920 full hd dispaly
power supply is 19.5v 3.9A model vgp-AC19v37
laptop model vaio vpceb17fg
Your motherboard does not support the socket type that the new processor uses also the insufficient cooling in your laptop would most likely cause it to overheat. On a laptop the only things you should be upgrading/changing are HDD's and ram.
