    It is possible to upgrade? Yonah to Merom

    I have a compaq HP8420 Laptop.

    It has a mobile core duo 2400 Yonah CPU.

    Is it possible to upgrade the Merom?

    thanks

    I've heard of people doing this in Macbooks and Macminis, but I don't know how accepting other notebooks are. It's mostly an issue with the BIOS--it may not properly detect the CPU, or it might run it at the incorrect voltage, causing too much heat.
    Give what you cannot keep to gain what you cannot lose.

    You just need a BIOS update to support it, if your manufacturer does it. Remember to get a Socket M cpu and not a core 2 Socket P mobile cpu.

    By the way, what does BTW stand for?

    It is better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6.
