Upgrade Pavillion g7.1365dx from AMD A6 to AMD A10 cannot find seller

Old post but for anyone reading. 

 

You can upgrade the cpu on these with no problem. 

if you have the old liano core cpu A6-3400M with 6520G gpu then below are my suggestions. 

 

 

Look for a socket FS1 A8 3520m for the maximum upgrade.  Check ebay or amazon. 

Upgrade your ram to 8gb

Upgrade hard drive to SSD. 

make sure you have windows 7 installed for best performance. 

 

 

a8-3520m part number  AM3520DDX43GX (35 W) 

 

 

 check out your core specs here -

Look up MSI afterburner, AMD Overdrive, and k10stat for small performance increase beyond your upgrades. These are software controlled due to being a laptop and bios limited. 

 

 

You can expect a decent performance increase over old setup if you do all upgrades. You might want to consider upgrade cost vs.  selling it for X. That way you can add X to cost of upgrade and see if you can buy a newer model.
