Hi all,

is it possible to change the cpu and upgrade it on a Satellite U300?
I know that the chipset can support various processors (Intel GM965).

Usually parts like CPU or graphic card are not upgradeable due to different reasons.
The GPU is not upgradeable because itís soldered on the board.
The CPU should be not replaced because the BIOS could not support it and a higher CPU performance could lead to a overheating issues.

But why you want upgrade the CPU?
First of all you would not notice performance boost and secondly you would cancel you warranty validity.

In my opinion itís not worth trying such upgrades.
