Re: pavilion dv4 notebook CPU Upgrade

Hi,

You can upgrade the processor if you do not have the Intel Core 2 Duo processor T5800 - 2.0GHz (Merom-MV, 800MHz front side bus, 2MB total Level-2 cache, socket Micro-FCPGA, 35W TDP, 65nm) installed. That is the only replacement processor listed in PartSurfer. That means that it is very likely to be the only guaranteed compatible processor. 

A new motherboard is required to upgrade the graphics.  

 

regards,

erico
