    I am trying to find out, if it is possible to speed up my laptop by getting a faster CPU.

    How can I find out what CPU socket is inside my HP laptop?

    Thank You, TM

    Detailed specs about the laptop would be a start. Go to HP support web site and find out, just put in the complete model number at their web page

    Thanks, have already tried,but...

    "No longer supported" is all I get.

    In the data page I get that the interface is an ATA-7... does that mean I cannot fit an SSD in there?

    When I look for a Bios update, I also get "No longer supported".

    The thing works fine, I use it when I travel, it is just slow...

    I used Speccy for an HP G60-513NR laptop that I am having a hard time finding a compatible processor upgrade from a single core celeron 900. Looking for a duo core cpu.
    Speccy did give me the chipset ID which I could not find anywhere else :clap:

    Thanks Bat.1 Although Intel recommends a list of processors, that does not always mean that a different processor may not work. This laptop does have the GL40 chipset but I have read on line that this laptop might be able to use the T9300 duo core processor, which is not listed on Intel's web site as officially supported. When I get this processor I'll let you know if it will work with this chipset

    I know this isn't a thread I started, but I thought that I would post an update. I got the T9300 processor for this laptop Saturday so I installed it this morning. I removed the single core 900 Intel chip from the laptop and installed the Core 2 Duo, booted right up and is now upgraded. Although this processor is not on Intel's list of approved cpu's for this gl40 chipset, it does work. Now when I get that SSD I'll be done with it
    :clap:
