HP G6 With A10 Processor???

Hey friends.

I have an HP G6 Pavilion 1014SA

I have been looking around for new parts for my computer. I already have:

8GB (2x4) Samsung Memory

1TB Western Digital Hard Drive.

I have done quite a bit of research and believe I have read that the processor is interchangeable.

I was wondering if anyone knows if my motherboard can handle the AMD A10 Processor (Not Overclocked) without blowing?

If you can help me that would be great. Thank you.

  1. From what I've found the HP G6 Pavilion 1014SA uses a 1.8 GHz AMD Phenom II Quad-Core P960 (or similar CPU).

    The socket is not compatible with a recent mobile Trinity APU.

    The best option is to simply buy a new laptop if you want something faster.
  2. Well right now im running an AMD A6-3400M with Radeon Processor. I believe it runs the same Connector right?

    If yes I just need to know if its going to fry my motherboard from the power? Or if its not possible at all.
  3. Hmmmm.... Sorry, I figured they were different sockets.

    According to the following site, the new mobile Trinity APUs as still socket FS1, but have been revised to revision 2; i.e. FS1r2. Unknown if it will work because the CPU architecture is different from Llano and you will likely need new motherboard BIOS otherwise the motherboard will not recognize the Trinity APU.

    The safe bet would to to upgrade to a mobile Llano APU instead of the current Trinity APU.
  4. I would need a new motherboard for the llano APU? I would rather do it though. Its all cheaper then spending the 1200 on a new laptop. Thats why people like us exist >:D
