Upgrading Laptop Processor. How Can I Do It?

  Logan6996 11:47 04 Mar 2016

My processor is AMD Quad-Core A8-4555M with Radeon HD 7600G Graphics (1.6 GHz, 4 MB cache) & my laptop model is the same as this: click here Pavilion Notebook PC 15-n278sa. I am not too technical when it comes to actually building & upgrading computers. My expertise lies with software & applications not hardware. Any advice or news would be much appreciated thank you.

You can't. Well, you probably could but it would be easier to buy a new laptop.

I do not have the money to purchase a new laptop hence why I need to possibly upgrade it.

The problem being this is an Ultra Low Voltage processor that is soldered to the motherboard therefore it can't be upgraded .

Only things upgradeable in most laptops is hard drive and memory.

If you want to do upgrading- next time don't by a laptop.
