can a cq56 v140 processor be upgraded?

The question is self explanatory, unless of course your'e brain dead.  Can a CQ56 AMD V140 Processor with Windows7 64bit O.S. be upgraded to a dual core? yes or no?

Re: can a cq56 v140 processor be upgraded?



Below is the service manual for the model.


See chapter 1, page 1 for the list of supported processors.


Wouldn't a V160 be better than an Athlon N370 dual core?


But if you know otherwise, then you should be able to install the N370.
