I would like to upgrade my L512 processor therefore I need to know the CPU socket type. What CPU socket format does my ThinkPad L512 use? How can i find it out?


A suggestion of using HWiNFO 32/64 can detect a system hardware components including CPU socket.

The ThinkPad L512 uses a 988 socket type as confirmed by HWinfo32/64.
