Hi, I just got the old 7 beeps from my Dell M501R and was wondering if there is a way to replace the processor? Im assuming its not a clip in/out kind.
Any help would be much appreciated.

i looked at that model and it has socket s1 cpu's. you can change them, you unscrew the socket and replace the chip, and screw everything back in.

here is a video to give you an idea on what to expect when you change out your cpu. its really long though, almost an hour long.
