I upgraded some time ago to a intel i3-2350m processor.
According to the manual the highest i can go is Intel Core i5-2450M
I found some post regarding an processor upgrade for another pavilion g6 laptop where upgrading to a highe processor i7-3632QM.
Since the motherboard is identical (Model 1840 (u3e1) bios revision f.26 ) , will this upgrade work for me also ?
Thank you !
