what processor can I upgrade too?

Product Name: Presario CQ57-212NR LW443UA
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I bought a used laptop and would like to upgrade the cpu, and was wondering what were my options.

It is a Compaq Presario CQ57-212NR LW443UA#ABA. currently holds an AMD  C-50 1Ghz processor.

Re: what processor can I upgrade too?

According to what I see in the Maintenencve & Service guide, replacing the systemboard is the only means of upgrading the processor.


The AMD processor is a BGA type and is soldered onto the systemboard  with the chipset.


Your notebook is non upgradeable, in terms of the AMD processor.
