    Upgrading a old beater laptop cpu


    I currently am using a Toshiba Satellite L675-S7015 laptop, Im going to have to do some maintenance soon which requires me tearing it apart to the motherboard so i thought it wouldn't hurt to see if there's a better cpu that this can be replaced with, It currently has a AMD Anthlon II P320 Dual Core and i noticed most AMD chips from that time can be had for cheap nowadays. What would be the best cpu that this laptop can handle, Ive already checked and its a socket so it can be replaced. Will the bios be able to support a different cpu? Yes this is a old laptop, but im not interested in anything new, This is a old beater laptop that i can comfortably bring places and not worry if it gets stolen so i only want to use this specific laptop.

    Some BIOS configurations require a positive entry for each supported CPU. Here's mine:

    http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/B75M-DGS%20R2.0/?cat=CPU

    So, if I bought a CPU that was not listed as compatible, I would have issues to resolve with ASRock support.

    Good luck,
