Can i upgrade my processor?
I want to upgrade the CPU in m laptop. it's not soldered down. i know because i removed it to reapply paste a year ago.
I can't seem to find any information for CPU upgrade except for a youtube video on a HP Pavilion G6 1254. not my model, but the layout is the same. I want to upgrade the CPU to an AMD A8-3500M.

you may have a thermal [heat issue]. try the help pages, esp Q & A, at the maker's website to see if anyone has done this before

You should be able to upgrade it. However, you're probably not going to notice much of a difference in performance with the CPU upgrade.
