    Laptop CPU upgrade Q's

    I recently disassembled my dell 1545 to repair the power socket and found a cpu socket which can be upgraded.Anyone tell me what is involved in swapping to a more powerful cpu in my laptop.

    Current T4400; 2.2 ghz; 800 mhz fsb 1mb cache; 45nm; 35w.

    I am looking to upgrade to a T8300 or T9500? Other than purchase of the cpu and installing what else must be done to use the cpu?

    Thanks

    Rich

    Maybe a bios update or settings changes in the bios? I'm not real sure.

    If it was an option with your model, or really same form factor, it should be plug and play.

    The bios will auto detect the change if the board supports the processor. The old school stuff you had to manually switch a switch to change processors.
