Can I replace my CPU in my HP Beats 15 Notebook PC?

HP Beats 15 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I was wondering if I could replace my CPU for my HP Beats 15 Notebook Laptop as 1.70 GHz isn't enough for me.

 

Thanks for responding.

We need the exact model number. Right now we can't even tell if it is Intel or AMD. Generally you can replace the processor but not always. On some models it is soldered to the motherboard.

We're making progress. I still need your full model number so I can access the correct manual and also figure out what you have. Possibly you already have the best available AMD processor so there would be no upgrade path.

Yes!!! You have the A8-5545M APU

 

You can install this:

 

AMD A10-5745M (2.1 GHz/2.9 GHz, 4 MB L2, 1333 MHz DDR3L), quad core, 25 W Max DDR3L-1333

 

Here is the Service Manual which you will need in order to do the replacement. It is not a simple thing I will point out.

 

Service Manual

 

This will be a small but noticeable performance bump. On these models the video is built into the processor so upgrading to the A10 will have the side effect of installing a slightly faster video system as well. It will run a few fps faster on games.

 

Oh, and it is not a matter of just replacing a processor. On this model, the processor is soldered to the motherboard so you have to replace the whole motherboard. This is the part you need:

 

AMD A10-5745M (2.9 GHz/2.1 GHz, 4 MB L2, 1333 MHz DDR3L, quad core, 25 W) for use with Windows Standard HP Pavilion 17 Notebook PC
763424-501
 

 

The board is available for about $175 plus shipping on eBay:

Please let us know if you need any more help and let us know how it goes if you decide to go forward.
