C50-30 Processor upgrade

2020-07-30, 11:57 AM

I have the Lenovo C50-30 with the i3-5005U CPU and am wondering if I can upgrade this easily and to which Intel processor? The 8GB RAM is fine, but I am having some issues streaming video and running other processes. 

Also with this upgrade can I upgrade to the NVIDIA 802A graphics card?

Welcome to the Lenovo forum community!


So the issue here is that, often, the cpu is surface mounted, and therefor cannot be changed, some laptops, they do sit in a socket, but then its a question, if the systemboard BIOS supports the BIOS.


The graphics card, is inside the CPU.


So, short answer is no.


Longer answer, well if you can find a systemboard, made for the  C50-30 with a better CPU then this might be a possible swap, but there is no 100% garantie since the models might have internal differences, old mold differences compared to the laptop casing.
