Most of the time you arnt able to upgrade notebooks.. If you can it may not be worth the crazy prices this costs. Better to get a new noteboo when you have cash.

There are no dual core cpus for that socket anyways. It is that old.

In most cases, a CPU cannot be replaced in a laptop simply because they tend to be soldered right to the system's motherboard. In the odd case in which you CAN, in fact, remove the CPU and replace it with a new one, it is simply unsafe to do so as the components of the laptop are tweaked with relation to the processor itself. It will result in a CPU that will become quickly overheated.

Your best bet is to save up for a desktop computer if you want to upgrade your CPU.

Most laptops cpus are NOT soldered, it is rare for them to be.

It is not rare for them to be soldered at all. I would say there is an equal chance for them to be soldered as there is for them to be locked into the socket using a bar.

I've only seen soldered CPUs in much older models. I honestly haven't seen them much in newer ones.

What do you want this upgrade for?

If it is for gaming. It will not help... You would need a discreet graphics card for that...

I'm not in the mood to school someone right now but lets look as his laptop. This is his exact mobo. Notice the common laptop screw lock, a non-solder type socket and no bar to lock the cpu in.

In any case there are no dual core cpus for this socket and it's so old, it isn't worth upgrading.

I think you missed the part where I said "There is an equal chance for it to be soldered as there is for it to be locked in using the bar", and yes they are locked in with screws as well.

I think you missed the part where his cpu is neither soldered nor held in place by a bar. Also you missed the part where a screw can be unscrewed. That is the common way a laptop cpu is held in place and is in fact easily removed.

I did not miss that at all. It would be rather difficult considering the size of the picture.

I still would not advise him to change the CPU, or attempt to upgrade it.

Ultra-slim and net-top often have soldered CPUs simply because there is no space/thickness to accommodate a socket. For Atom and AMD's equivalent CPU, soldered is the only option.
