So pretty soon I'm going to dumping some money into my laptop and want to know what I can do
First off, my system right now:
1.73 i7 (Turbo to 2.93)
500gb 7200rpm (already upgraded)
1gb ATI 5730
What I want to do:
320 or 500 SSD
i7-920XM (2.0 - 3.2)
Is it all compatible?
Also there is a little square panel on the bottom front that when you take off there is nothing there but a connector, what is it for?
Solved! Go to Solution.

OK, sweet, couldn't find that! So what about that empty square on the bottom?

The RAM might work, but I don't think the bus-speed is that high for our machines, in which case it would be downclocked.

So I got an i7-720QM when I bought the laptop. That was the best processor available and that is what I picked.
I want something better now.
Can my motherboard support anything?
Y560 seems easy to disassemble and CPU easy to access and maybe easy to access and replace.

So I'm looking at the list of compatible processors for the HM55 chips set and found one I like. I was intending on getting the INtel i7 Q40qm processor. But before I drop 600 on it, I wanted to ask the community whether this particular hardware was compatible with the BIOS and if it'd cause problems for the powersuppy and if so, how I should go about fixing these. I'm fairly new to the world of computer building but I'm learning. Any help would be really appreciated.
