sorry if i consist on the subject, but do you think that messin with the cpu is gonna be hard? i checked on intel'spage and they say that the processor is compatible with my chipset.. do i need more info about other components too to be sure that he upgrade is gonna fit? or do you think that installin a new processor is gonna be the dificult issue? thank you for your time..

Well most laptops have a panel that is easily removed for access to the RAM and Hard Drive. To get to the CPU you need to take the whole laptop apart. In the past I have seen CPU soldered to the laptop Motherboard. CPU replacement on a laptop in not a job I would do myself.
