I have always wondered if it is possible to upgrade my processor like from a single core to a dual core.
Can i be able to do this without replacing the whole motherboard?
Would really appreciate any ideas from you guys on this topic.
Can i upgrade my processor
Unlike with a normal desktop computer where you can easily upgrade or replace the processor, in a laptop, upgrading the processor is not that easy. Also, it is generally not recommended to replace or upgrade the processor of a laptop because of the technicalities involved. Purchasing a new processor for a laptop is also not that easy.
Instead of upgrading the laptop’s processor, it would be better to just focus on upgrading the memory by adding more RAM to your machine. Also, bear in mind that the expense or cost of replacing the motherboard and the processor basically exceeds the cost of replacing the laptop. To make it simple, replacing these components is more expensive than buying a replacement for your laptop.
