    Hi

    Graphic card cannot be replaced.
    The CPU could be but this is tricky.
    Nobody knows if your notebook would run stable after such upgrade.
    However, if you want to do that, you can try to upgrade the CPU but at your own risk…
    You need to check what CPU is supported by the chipset on the motherboard.

    As far as I know other Intel Dual Core CPUs should be supported by chipset so you’ve got good changes to get it running with another Dual Core CPU…
