What do I need to replace when upgrading the BGA Processor?
Hello, I have a Lenovo Ideapad S400 (somewhat similar to the laptop above). My laptop is equipped with a Pentium 987 (Dual Core 1.5GHz), it sucks on everything I do. Paired with a 5400rpm HDD and 2GBs of sloppy 1666MHz ram, it plays League of Legends on 40 ish fps on 720p (I have an external 1080p monitor due to the minuscule screen on the laptop. I’ve been thinking to upgrade the processor. Remove the existing P987 by heating it up and replacing it with a similar BGA processor. I have found some candidates for my upgrade but then what bothers me is that I might remove some other components as well in the process to be successful. Any ideas?
