Hi jebbers!

 

Welcome to the Community Forums!

 

Apologies as we are unable to find the Hardware Maintenance Manual of the G550 from the https://download.lenovo.com/eol/index.html site. However the drivers there are listed.

 

As for the processor upgrade, you can check on these threads from our forums with the recommended processors. 

 

Thread 1, Thread 2, Thread 3, Thread 4.

 

Hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards,

Jerry_Lenovo

Thank you. I read those threads before posting. One technician told me I can't upgrade a G550 with a dual core. I want to get an i3, 5, or 7. But I see there are some steps to doing this and would like an outline. Someone said something about the motherboard and installing sofware to find the chipset, and then there is an issue with CPU. My mind is boggled. How about a step by step list of Things to Do?

 

I need the model number? 20023. What else do I need to know and do and in what order?

Good day.

I'm pretty sure that the G550 will not support any Core-i CPU upgrade, regardless of the chipset on the system board.

 

Regards.

Unless you really know what you are doing, forget about replacing/upgrading laptop CPU. It is much more complicated than doing so for a desktop computer.
