I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on whether it is possible to upgrade the cpu in an Inspiron 14z (5423)?
It currently has an Core i3 2367M @ 1.4GHz cpu, so I was wondering if I could put a new i5 or even i7 in there?
This system uses a ball-grid CPU - unlike mainline notebooks, the CPU is soldered to the mainboard. It cannot be removed for upgrading.
The only upgrade option would be a replacement mainboard with a faster CPU on it - assuming one exists.
Thanks ejn63, I suspected it wasn't replaceable as the manual covered replacing pretty much everything else!
Thanks for the response.
