Cpu upgrade on dv4 2165dx what cpu is compatible?
- UserLv 72 months agoFavorite Answer
If that is a LAPTOP or NOTEBOOK computer
you can NOT upgrade the CPU.
In most laptops and notebooks
the CPU is "soldered in"
that is: it's "permanently" attached to the motherboard
and it can't be removed or replaced.
there is no mention of any provision for alternate CPUs
Back in "the good old days"
they used to sell a "PC on an expansion board"
that would allow you to upgrade a PC CPU processing power
while keeping all of the same hardware that you already had in your PC.
However: that was back when the typical IBM-brand PC/XT/AT cost thousands of dollars
- I mean: $5,000 to $10,000 198? dollars
and so did peripherals included in the PC
and I don't think they make those any more
and if they did you'd probably be disappointed in the performance.
