Solved Replace Intel Atom N450 with N550 on my HP Mini 5102 Tags: CPUs Chipsets HP Mini Intel Last response: July 20, 2012 1:02 AM in CPUs Share zowki July 15, 2012 5:55:18 AM I am planning on upgrading my HP Mini 5102 with an Intel Atom N450 to an N550. Since the N550 uses the same chipset I believe it will work. Can any confirm that this is possible?

Best solution jay_nar2012 a b à CPUs July 17, 2012 10:23:49 PM The intel atom is soldered onto the board (uses BGA), its not meant to be user replaceable unless you know how to desolder a CPU. Don't bother, opening a laptop can lead to more problems and if you have a guarantee or warranty then you will void them or it. You could upgrade RAM, that could improve performance a little.
