Hey guys! Ok, I have an HP 320-1030all in one.
Windows 7 Home Premium
AMD A4-3400
I installed 8GB of RAM
64-bit OS

I use Pro Tools 9, so I am getting alot of high CPU usage warnings when I have a large session running. So what Im looking to do is upgrade my processor to an AMD A8-3850. I guess the current processor is embedded/tattooed. Is it still possible for a qualified tech to install my new processor? Would it even work? I really need some help here, HP customer support are zero help lol. Thanks!!!

According to HP, the processor is not embedded and can be upgraded. The micro board looks like a cross between a Desktop Mobo and a Laptop Mobo. http://h10025.www1.h...uct=5157096#N35 If you scroll down, you can see where HP has optional processor upgrades listed. Not sure what you are going to have to go through to upgrade it, but apparently, it can be done.
