    What kind of processor?

    Hello,

    I have an HP 2000 notebook pc. It comes with a stocked chip it is an AMD E-300 APU with Radeon HD graphics 1.3 GHz. The product id is 00179-60210-98928-AAOEM. I was wondering if I can upgrade the processor and if I can what compatible processor can I put in my computer?


    Sorry I am new this.

    Notebooks are usually very limited in upgrade options, HDD and RAM only. It may be possible to put a faster AMD chip in, but it would be second hand and may not work. You'll have to save your pennies and get a newer box.

    cheers, Paul

    I agree, notebooks make terrible hardware upgradablity, even hard drives can be difficult, let alone a processor.
    Not impossible to the experienced tech, but not something just anybody would want to do.

    The HP support website ought to tell you if you can upgrade the processor. It will depend on whether it is socketed or not. The sockets tend to make the notebooks larger and heavier and so they may not be socketed.
