    Hi there! I only have one question: Is it possible to replace the CPU of an Acer Aspire 5742g Laptop? I couldn't find anything on google about changing CPU, only RAM and keyboards.

    Thanks in advance!

    for as far as I know, you can change the cpu on any laptop, as long as it has the same socket. ex: if you have an i5 3210, you can put a i7 3000 series in it.

    Do you have the i5 450m? I think you can put a 520 or a 540. Maybe even a i7, just be careful that your cooling system can handle it and that the load power usage doesn't exceed your psu's maximum.

    edit: check if they sell your laptop with other cpu's. If they do, It shouldn't be a problem
