Having problems with your Sony VAIO Digital Studio PCV-RX650 PC Desktop ?

Is the P4 processor removable in order to replace w/a faster P4?

\015 I am interested to know if the 1.6Ghz P4 processor can be removed and a faster p4 installed in it's place?\015

Answers :

To remove:

There is a lever/clamp that firmly holds the processor in the socket.\015\012You must pull the little brown/tan handle out (away from the socket)\015\012and up. It goes out perhaps 1/4 inch and up 90 degreee. Once this clamp\015\012has been released you should easily be able to lift the processor with\015\012your fingers.
\015\012Be extremely careful with all the pins on the processor as they bend out of alignment with very little force.\015\012

And i guess, you shld be able to replace the processor however you wld also want to confirm it with the customercare to confirm if your motherboard would support that.
