Just signed up to this forum.... Right I aint computer techy at all really..... but i'm experimental which is probably a horrific combination haha but oh well thats me!
I absolutely love my G580
swapped a sony vaio for it..... because it was blue..... haha but anyway its a cracking laptop and i like it....
im running an intel celeron b830 CPU in this..... 6gb ram and 1tb HDD
I use this for music production, I have a huge library of music saved to it.... right it runs fast all the time.... i look after my wee blue belle
But im convinced she needs a better processor.... because sometimes she lags and freezes when im getting tore into making beats.....
Now im looking on ebay at processors.....
i havent a clue what to buy? so many choices its actually boggling my brain! im reading that the CPU might run and i might fry by motherboard and all sorts of madness lol
So my question is what CPU should i upgrade too and should i also give her an extra wee bit of RAM to go with her new found processor???
and what kind should i go for??
dual core? quad core?
remember im not techy so no confusing replys please
a case of fit this.... do that and do this and you'll solve all your problems and not kill her.... thanx look forward to hear what some of you think and especially what some of you have done
also my windows rating is 5.0
i wanna push her over 6.0 maybe even 7.0 lol
and she was windows 8.... but she was down graded because who on earth wants windows with out a start button???? nah man it wasnt for me lol
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi, yes this forum is very passive :/ I also asked a question and did not get answer yet, but I think I have an answer for your question. I ahve G585 its on AMD and I wanted to change it on Intel so I was searching for information. how I know this two models are same but the have only differenc in chipsets.
I found this information shon on iamge on this site, in manual pdf files of our laptops here >>>
I would by 2450M or 3210M

Yes the old cooler will be ok if you are changing only CPU, you must chang cooler only if you ar going to change VGA because lenovo has 2 variatons of coolers for this model one if you have discrete VGA and second if you have integrated VGA which is HD graphics for intel.
So I don't think that you will need to change Cooler also I had not yet laptop yet(I will get my G585 only on saturday) and I did not bought yet laptop cpu and I don't know if it comes with cooler but I think that you can find only oem cpu-s for laptops, because it is not like Desctop PC where cooler depends only on motherboard, but also on laptop model.
I hope you understand what I mean because I am not natinve english speaker I think I have many errors in text.
PS. If it will not be a problem, I want to ask you to take an image of you laptops Motherboard when you will change cpu, I want to compare it with G585 motherboard, because how I wrote befor I want to get Intel on my G585, beacause AMD is very weak and I hope that this to moleds have same form factor MB.

here on this forum I found thes file you can check some info here http://www.lenovo.com/psref/pdf/3book.pdf
it looks like there are some variations of G580 so you must check better which one is yours to know 100% which CPU will work on yours because they have same sockets but maybe bios will not have support of some cpus
