Hello all, i have just picked up a hp 635 from a local pawn shop he was asking 225 for it and i haggled the guy down from that to 175, i really didn't need this as i have a good desktop for gaming that i have built, the specs on this laptop are, 8gb ddr3 ram. 500gb 7200rpm hdd and it has a pos dual core 1.3 ghz e300 processor that i cant find out how to over clock just a tad to 1.5 and increase voltage but its just not happening none of the programs i have will oc it , i have a Toshiba from about a year ago that the hinges broke off and one day i opened it and knocked the mobo out and its dead now...it has a amd apu in it and its like 2.4 ghz, the main reason i purchased this is because i am 14, in school, and like to go to my friends house and am out alot, i like to take it to my buds houses and have get together and what not, i cant even run mine craft or world of Warcraft without lagging on the e300 its so low, but for 175 i figured i could upgrade the apu and for 8gb of ddr3 ram and a 500gb 7200rpm hdd it was a good deal, but i found out that you cant get a hold of apu's like that i was wondering if i could take the one out of my old toshiba and put it in this new laptop?
No you can't swap it. It's rare you can upgrade a laptop processor, but especially in this case. Those E-series AMD chips are soldered on to the motherboard, they don't have sockets and are non-removeable.
