Is it possible to upgrade the processor on my Satellite L500-128?

I have a Toshiba Satellite L500-128 with an Intel Centrino duo core proccessor with duo core 2 technology and wanted to know if it is possible to
pgrade whether a quard core proccessor or a core I3 processor?

Thank you



Hi Oscar

In my opinion the SSDS are quite expensive in that time and I think that you shouldn't spend a lot of money for it now.
I think that you should increase the RAM to the maximum level and make the right configuration of the OS and you should be satisfied with the performance.
I don't know what you're doing with your laptop, but for every day activities, it will be enough.

  • Is it possible to upgrade the processor in a Satellite M40 - 101?

    I have 479 pin provided Pentiuma® M 730 1.6 Ghz processor. It is insufficient for some tasks more. So I would like to upgrade CPU, but is it possible?


    Theoretically, it is possible to upgrade the CPU but practically it is not easy to do.
    The M40 comes with different CPU's.
    As far as I know, these processors has been used and are compatible:
    -Processor Intel Dothan (533 MHz)
    730 1.6 GHz
    740 1.73 GHz
    750 1.86 GHz
    760 2.0 GHz
    770 2.13 GHz

    It seems that notebook was shipped with the first.
    But believe me; No one can tell if the laptop can run successfully after the CPU upgrade.
    As you probably know the faster and more powerful processor produces more heat and this could lead to overheating of the laptop.
    In my view, this is a serious problem and you should be careful

    By the way: Please check this thread. The risk of upgrading have been described very detailed:

  • Upgrade the processor to a Satellite A200-17O (PSAE6)


    I was just curious to know if it is possible to upgrade the processor of my Satellite A200-17O (PSAE6) (it is an Intel core 2 duo T7100) to a Core 2 Duo more powerful as the T7500. I had intended to do so in a year or two, since at that time there prices for chips should go down and the power of the 2.2 ghz (or more) opposed to the 1.8 ghz may be necessary...

    I ask that is because when checking, it seems to be quite difficult to obtain for the CPU (which means I have to remove all of the bottom of the laptop to access; would be an obstacle, I could take however). My main concern is that if the Bios would then recognize the chip I use, what should essentially be compatible since it is always based on the right PM965 Chipset?

    Thank you in advance, I am grateful for any answer.

    Sorry mate but it s not possible to upgrade your system with a new processor because your system it s not like a desktop system that can be easily upgraded.
    The problem is, these components such as the processor and VGA are "wired" for the user, which means that the manufacturer of a lack of doesn´t of mobile system to change any of these comps.

    You may have a chipset that can handle more CPU, but the BIOS is not how you think. You will have massive problems since the cooling system are designed individually for each machine, but each unit has its own BIOS configuration and so on.

    Probably the most interesting is that you will lose your warranty if you really take apart your machine yourself.

    Usually it of not possible to upgrade the processor.
    Of course, some people here have managed to upgrade the processor, but following some functions and features as don t work module cooling.

    I do not recommend upgrading the processor. No one knows if it runs correctly.
    Some processors are welded on the map and there is no possibility to remove it.

    This is why don t do if you are not sure it will work 100%!

    Thank you

    As far as I know spend CPU is not possible and thereby you can upgrade RAM to the maximum level. You should also configure and optimize the pre-installed OS and I sure that you will be satisfied with your laptop of my.

    In my opinion, the processor is powerful enough, but there are also other factors that may be responsible for slow operating system.

    Is it possible to upgrade the processor and what it could be?

    You can switch to any processor Socket M, if the BIOS of your laptop allows and if your computer laptop cooling supports all. You can go as high as the Core Duo T2700, which is 2.33 GHz with 2 MB of L2 cache. Or you can go as high as the Core 2 Duo T7600, which is also 2.33 GHz, but with 4 MB of L2 cache.

    Core Duo T2050, T2250, T2350, T2450

    Core Duo T2300 T2400 T2500, T2600, T2700

    Core 2 Duo T5500, T5600, T7200, T7400, T7600

    And of course you still have the Pentium dual-core Processor that are compatible. And those aren't the only ones, I'm sure there's more.

  • Is satellite Pro M70-235 - possible to upgrade the processor?


    Is it possible to upgrade of processor in this laptop (Pentium M 750-1866 MHz) Pentium M 780 2266 MHz?

    Thank you..


    Theoretically, it of possible to exchange the processor on your laptop, but nobody will be able to tell if the laptop works fine with the new processor or not.

    You mustn't forget that the BIOS and motherboard is designed for the preinstalled CPU and it s not tested with another processor. Normally a newer or faster CPU produces more heat and I don t know if the Assembly of cooling on your laptop is sufficient for this.

    If you still have the warranty of your laptop you will lose because Toshiba doesn't support the CPU upgrade:

    Theoretically, it is possible to swap the CPU, but an upgrade is not supported by Toshiba. This means that you lose the warranty and no one can say if other types of CPU are supported or not because there is no list with other processors.

    Can also make sure that the current fan and cooling module is good enough for better CPU?

  • Tecra A4: Is it possible to upgrade the processor to a Core 2 Duo

    Anyone know if it is possible to upgrade the centrino pentium m 2.0 to a core 2 duo? I got contradictory responses from businesses of the model assumed in my area.

    I don't know who to believe and don't want my laptop massacred by a hack who thinks he can do something that is not possible.

    Thank you!


    No, it is not possible to s!
    Tecra A4 supports the Intel Pentium M (Dothan) and Intel Celeron M processor.

    This processor Intel Dothan (533 MHz) are supported:
    7301.6 GHz / 740 1.73 GHz / 750 1.86 GHz / 760 2.0 GHz / 770 2.13GHz

    and the processor Intel Celeron M (400 MHz)
    350 1.3 GHz / 360 1.4 GHz / 370 1.5GHz

    Upgrade CPU on laptops is always risky!
    Faster CPU will produce more heat and the temperature increases of higher level. The laptop could overheat!

  • HP laptop - 15-ac110na: is it possible to upgrade the processor?

    Hi I was wondering if it would be possible to upgrade the CPU on my laptop. It's a HP for laptop - 15-ac110na (ENERGY STAR). It is the CPU Intel(r) Pentium (r) CPU 3825U 1.90 GHz but I would exceed 3.0 GHz. If this is possible, is - could anyone recommend a new processor with more power and processing speed?

    Thank you very much.

    Sort of. Here is the Service Manual:


    The CPU is soldered on the motherboard would be the only way to upgrade to replace the motherboard which would cost about what you probably paid for your laptop. In other words, it could be done, theoretically, but makes no economic sense. Sell your laptop even if you take a loss and buy a new one with the processor you want and you will come out ahead. None of the available processors comes not far from 3 ghz., 2.4 is the fastest.

    Hi Cosmin

    The whole upgrade CPU is a little difficult.
    Let the facts:
    -Is this laptop manufacturers don t s support all updated CPU and don t advice these updates.
    -The fact is that laptops using special versions of BIOS modified for each series laptop and therefore different processors might be problematic due to the compatibility of the BIOS. In the worst case, your laptop would not start after upgrading CPU.
    -The fact is that your laptop supports the chipset AMD Hudson A68M and ONLY AMD processors would be supported by the chipset.
    -The fact is that laptop procedure disassembly is not very easy and there is a high risk of damage of the part while dismantling the unit.
    -The fact is that you will NOT see large performance gain after upgrading the CPU. I recommend you replace the HARD drive with an SSD for performance gain.

    Here are some facts that you should consider before considering the replacement of the CPU.
