    I have Laptop: *SATELLITE C670-17M*
    My processor: *Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU B950 @ 2.10GHz, 2100 MHz*
    My Chipset is: *Mobile Intel® HM65 Express Chipset*

    So, If you look http://ark.intel.com/products/52808/Intel-BD82HM65-PCH and click *Compatible products* http://prntscr.com/27avin you can see all compatible processors that you can use with this chipset right?

    My question is, Can I upgrade my current processor with all of processors on that list? http://prntscr.com/27awsp

    Thanke you,

    Rok

    Probably yes.
    But fact is that nobody would be able to answer this question since such CPU upgrade isn’t officially supported. This means that notebook manufacturers don’t provide any information regarding such upgrade and compatibility.

    You can try such upgrade at your own hand and hope that BIOS would be able to handle such new CPU.

    In my opinion CPU upgrade is not necessary. Generally speaking build in CPU is powerful enough for most operations so I think you should not change anything. More performance you can have if you upgrade RAM and original HDD with SSD. Both upgrades are supported, warranty will not be cancelled and not risky as CPU upgrade.

    As additional info check please Toshiba document about CPU/GPU upgrade - http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB9401AX0001R01.htm
