Acer Aspire X1430g CPU/Processor Upgrade

Ok, so i have the Acer Aspire X1430g
it comes with AMD E-450 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics installed.
i am running Windows 8 Consumer preview, if that matters.

My pc is running at about 1.6 GHz, i want to know how to find out if i can upgrade it to a higher processor.
Tried Google, and various search engines, cant really find anything.
any help would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Basic rule of thumb I like to go by - if the manufacturer's tech specs for the machine doesn't state any other processors (or the one you want to upgrade to), then the CPU cannot be upgraded. As such, the tech specs for the machine doesn't show it to be upgradable for the CPU.

    Non-rule of thumb - if you wanted to try it anyway (knowing that it may not work/may ruin unit), then upgrade the BIOS to the newest available, then switch the CPU. It'll either work, or it won't. Or it will work very, very horribly.
  2. Looks as though it's a one-off, raked through the Service Manual, no mention of other CPUs and the BIOS can only be flashed for Linux. Nice Service Manual though...
