CPU Upgrade For Lenovo IdeaPad S300!

2013-11-15, 4:20 AM

Hi guys,

Is it possible to upgrade the IdeaPad S300 CPU?  The Service Manual does not seem to go any farther than HSF replacement.  

Solved! See the solution

'evening.

 

On page 62 of the manual found at:

http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_s300_hmm_1st_edition_jul_2012.pdf

items marked #6 are the various CPU variants. Notice the "BGA" notation. That's stands for Ball Grid Array, IIRC. Soldered to the system board, so not upgradeable other than swapping in a different system board.. If the notation had been "PGA" (Pin Grid Array), there might have been a possibility.

 

Sorry.

Ah, you're right.  I didn't put that together when I saw that.
