I am considering upgrading my TX1000, but I lack the manual.
I've been trying to find one on the site, but nothing gives me what I need.. the information about what processors the mainboard supports. What socket is on the board, and what processors fit on the board?
Also, is it possible to replace the graphics chip? I have a burnt one that only works periodically (tried fixing it with the hairdryer-trick, since HP didn't feel like fixing their own mistakes, so I can use the TX1000 on powersaver mode now.) Which graphics-chips are compatable?

Here's your hardware and maintenance manual. You can replace the CPU but to replace the GPU you would need a preheater, a reflowing bench, several thousand dollars worth of equipment.
Here's a long thread about certain processors and modifying the heat sink to keep it cooler. There's some nice pics in there.
NC4400, TC4400 Win 7 Ultimate, xp pro, both dual boot

Thank you for the input, but I already found that manual this manual says that the compatable cpu's are up to TL-60, but I have a TL-64 cpu in mine already, and doing some wiki reseach, there are faster cpu's with the same socket, but faster and newer technology, like the 45nm chips.
On the chip, this was what I was afraid of, i have some soldering skills, but I guess the lab isn't an optional thing
I already tried the money-trick, but I guess I put on too much cooling paste, will re-apply it asap.
