Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My laptop takes a intel core duo processor, can I install a core 2 Duo processor

Answers :


Yes you can. Take it to your nearby Technician and ask him to replace it with the Intel Core 2 Duo. Have fun!

Some laptop and portable computer manufacturers allow their customersto upgrade their processor speeds. However, if available seriouslyconsider the upgrade in speed and the cost, often for the amount ofmoney spent and the little increase in performance it may not be worththe upgrade.
This type of upgrade often requires the laptop computer orportable computer manufacturer or authorized repair shop to perform theupgrade and is not something an end-user will be able to do.

If you want to do it yourself then you first need to check the exact model # of your motherboard, then to the intel website. There you can check from the compatibility tool which Core2Duo processor your motherboard supports.

The options listed on the intel website are the only ones available for your laptop.

Note: You should only attempt to replace the laptop processor if the second processor is found compatible, installing an incompatible processor can lead to hardware damage at worst.

If your laptop is under warranty then this replacement will void the the warranty.
