Could I swap a core 2 Duo T2300 to a T7500

Hi to all,

Does anyone got any information about this laptop cpu? Im looking at a swap to a faster cpu for my laptop. There are some good used cpu deals online for a T7500 but not sure if this will run on my Toshiba A100-027 laptop which currently has a T2300 core 2 duo chip.

Anyone info would be appreciated

Thanks

    Nope, they are of two different sockets, socket M for the T2300 and socket P for the T7500, unless there is a socket M version of the T7500, there isn't any way it will work, or fit.
  2. Hi,

    Thank you for that info. How about a T7600 thats a socket M. Do you think it will run? I found a cheap used one in fleabay.

    Thanks

    Depends, you would need to update the BIOS to allow the new CPU to work correctly, as its a different architecture then what your currently running, I would try to save up for a new laptop, as most new laptops are faster, and most laptops aren't designed to be upgraded.
