Hey all, basically I have a acer aspire 5410, (apparently the most unknown laptop in the world according to Google searches) and while it is a pretty decent computer, its CPU seriously lets it down. Especially as i would like to game on it, this is very hard at the moment. The CPU in question is the Intel Celeron processor 723, which is 1.2GHz. Basically I was wondering if anyone would know if it would be possible (or worthwhile) to upgrade this to a better, faster one.

I'm not really sure on it due to many conflicting articles and opinions some saying its too difficult and others saying its definately worth doing. If it is possible, i would appreciate it even more if you could give me some possible replacements and maybe some general instructions on how it would be done.

I myself know very little/nothing at all about computer hardware so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! (:

I've got a few 5410's and they have a CPU that's soldered to the motherboard - no chance of upgrade, sorry.

Looks like a Socket AM2/M2 to me:

See page 22 in the User Manual for possible CPUs:

The link refers to the Extensa range - not the Aspire. The Aspire doesn't have a ZIF socket so you can't change the CPU - not unless you desolder it and solder a new one in!
