I own a Toshiba laptop that has a single core AMD processor(2.1GHz and 4 GB ram) so that makes it very difficult for me to play some games like FIFA soccer on my laptop, but i have seen another laptop just like mine with the same shape,size of screen,keyboard,battery and the same hdd size, In fact they look the same but the problem is that other laptop has dual core processors and can play the games i cannot play. I want to ask if i can change my processor to a dual core processor so that i can play the games i want to play?
Toshiba AMD processor changes/ upgrades to better ones
First of all, you must be able to identify your Toshiba laptop’s exact model. The capability of upgrading your laptop’s processor highly depends on its model. Once you have identified your laptop model, it is time to identify if it is possible to upgrade it. You can look this up in your laptop’s service manual which you’ll be able to download from Toshiba’s support page or through this site: http://www.retrevo.com/samples/Toshiba-Laptop-manuals.html.
If you find out that your laptop’s processor can be upgraded, the next step is for you to search for compatible laptop processors for your laptop. This may include more than one possible option. If there are several types of processors compatible with your laptop, you may compare them here: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/mid_range_cpus.html. Whichever ranks higher would be most likely the better choice. It may or may not be possible for you to change your processor to dual core. Again, I emphasize that this is highly dependent on your laptop model.
