Acer aspire 7741g and I7 processor?
Hello. Well I have a question regarding the cpu in my acer aspire. I have had this laptop since 2008, and although it has served me well and still is my main computer, I wish it had a little more kick to it. I Recently bumped it from a 250gb hdd to a 1T. My question is, and I know I jumped the gun on this one. I ordered an I7 720qm processor that I got for cheap, Me being a noob of noobishry, Assumed that it could be used as long as it was a G1 socket. Will this work an the aspire 7741? I did go so far as to install it, the cpu fit perfect in the socket. But when I went to boot up the pc there was nothing on the screen and I got a series of beeps. Anybody who can chime in on this for me would be great. I need to know if I can use this processor or not, or if there is some way to get it to work.
