You have to find out what motherboard you have, then find the specs manual, and it should tell you what your upgrade options are.

Google your motherboard.

The available processor upgrades may also require a bios update so checking your current bios version with the bios version recommended with the upgrade CPU.

Does your laptop manual say the CPU is replaceable? Some are BGA, ball grid array and soldered to the board.

Is it stupid if I say that I misplaced my manual?

This will help find your product #

Then do a search with your product # to find the specs for your machine. That will tell you your upgrade options.

There are different models of the dv7, but found this.

It seems like a waste to do that upgrade. It is not going to get you that much additional speed. If you want more speed get a SSD and leave the i5 CPU as it is.

AMD Turion X2 Dual-Core RM-75 VS Intel Core 2 Duo T6600
Since I couldn't get specs on the AMD Turion in terms of cache, etc. (the Intel one in the title is 2M Cache, 2.20 GHz, 800 MHz FSB) I couldn't figure out which is the better processor. Does anyone know? Is there also a website I can reference that can compare them?
