Is it possible to upgrade my HP 635 Notebook to a Dual Core processor?

My notebook currently has a AMD E-300 APU w/ Radeon HD graphics 1.30 GHz. I've never done this before, so I have no experience in upgrading/installing a new processor.

Re: Is it possible to upgrade my HP 635 Notebook to a Dual Core processor?

Hi,

 

Here is some information on this processor:

TypeCPU / Microprocessor
Market segmentMobile
FamilyAMD E-Series
Model numberE-300
CPU part numberEME300GBB22GV is an OEM/tray microprocessor
Frequency1300 MHz
Clock multiplier6.5
Package413-ball lidless micro-BGA (FT1)
SocketBGA413
Size0.75" x 0.75" / 1.9cm x 1.9cm

 

BGA processors, like this one, are soldered on a motherboard, as a result, upgrading or replacing them is extremely difficult.

 

Regards.

Hi,

 

It is not possible because the AMD E-300 processor is welded on the motherboard.

Well, this sucks. I'd be better off buying a new computer, since the cost of a new processor, motherboard, and labor would equal more than my notebook itself... Thanks for the insight.
