Lenovo Q190 - can I upgrade the Processor?

2014-10-12, 17:29 PM

Hi there,

 

I have a Lenovo Q190 - configuration number 57317805. This configuration comes with a Intel Celeron dual core 1017u.

 

I would like to know if it's possible to upgrade the processor on this model - ideally I'd like to go for as powerful a processor as possible. I've seen that the Intel® Core™ i7-2715QE Processor  has also the same socket (FCBGA1023) - could you assist me in verifying if this processor is supported? If not what others?

 

I have already upgraded the onboard HDD to an SSD, and the 2GB RAM to 8GB.

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Solved! See the solution

To anyone picking up on this thread....

 

I later found out that it's extremely difficult to reweld a processor onto this motherboard. I would suggest going down an easier route for any non-experts.
