Can I upgrade the cpu?
Can I replace the Pentium m with a core duo or higher? If I can then let me know and show he how to upgrade. Thanks
This is a 2006 HP model number NC6120 laptop. Enclosed within a black case, it contains a 1.73 GHz Intel Pentium Processor, 512MB of DDR RAM, and a 60 GB hardrive.
Here is a link to the type of memory used in your laptop.
Here is a link to the service manual for your laptop. Scroll to section 6-34, at the top of the page it details the memory options available for your laptop. As it only mentions 256MB, 512MB and 1024MB (1GB) memory modules as replacement parts you would assume, as there is only one slot that 1GB would be the maximum that it can handle.
You could try inserting a 2GB module using the same specifications, (PC2700 DDR SDRAM 200 pin 2.5V 333MHz SODIMM Memory) and see if it will work. You can only try.
The manual also shows the replacement CPU types available. The CPU is held in its' socket by a screw. You would also have to check that the BIOS would support the new CPU if you changed the type.
First you have to see if your laptop has a socketed or soldered CPU. You can only upgrade laptop CPUs if they are in a socket and can be removed. If so, either way you wouldn't be able to use a Core Duo in that system, only the ones listed on this Wikipedia page.
