Re: G550 gm45 chipset Max cpu supported?

The notebook does not show an upgrade path nor a list of parts online. From what I know of the mobile T6600 it could be in a soldered on chip or a socket style chip, not easily determined from looking at it externally.

This is a Core 2 Mobile chip, and is quite dated. It would be better to purchase a newer notebook (i3 or i5, or AMD A Series) that would significantly improve performance, connections options (WiFi, Bluetooth, USB 3) as well as work cooler and extend battery life.

Good luck.

Without an accounting of the socket (physica examination) or an accurate parts list there is no way to advise what can be used or what will work.  Good luck.
