They're generally custom motherboards based on model. What do you need to know about it?

Was wanting to know what cpu socket it was, will it except a i7, and if it was possible to upgrade the video card

You can't usually upgrade the video one notebooks except for very expensive boutique machines. You're pretty stuck in that area.

The CPU, though, can be upgraded on occasion. What chip do you have now?

It has an i5 430 in it now probably wont upgrade that unless i find a great deal on an i7 just want ed to know what socket i needed to keep an eye out for , it has the nvidia 105m, and am pretty sure i can go to the 330m without to much hassel

Run Belarc Adviser to get all your specs. To find your socket, run CPUZ.
