    My laptop computer has a 1.10GHz processor and want to upgrade the processor to 2.60GHz for better software processing?
    - Or should you download more ram for the computer?

    - I found a free downloadram blog, use and install more ram options as you like!

    On most laptops you can’t upgrade your cpu, especially if it’s soldered to motherboard. Changing it means you need to change entire motherboard which means better buying a new laptop or building a desktop if you want more freedom on an upgrade. Unless you have barebones or some old Alienware laptops that its cpu or gpu could be upgraded, it’s almost impossible upgrading the cpu or I would say not worth the effort. Ram is physical components you can’t download it.

    Most of case the issue with changing the cpu is not how to do it a limitation like motherboard socket and the most annoing is bios lock :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: In most case you can change to the same cpu lineup or cpu that manufacter sell as top model in this notebook lineup.

    Nowadays maybe, but before there’s bios passwords from several manufacturer you can find online. As I said it’s mostly on barebones and several popular like from Lenovo or dell.

    If cpu is not a internal part of motherbord and you can take out yes you can replace it :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: but the socket must be the same in most case manufacture with new models of notebook prevent user to replace it i not sure but it's probably msi and dell. with the notebooks from 2016/2017 and above. The next part is bios original bios even if you replace cpu lets say 4700MQ to 5xxx will dont work becose bios is lock and you must have custom one and be sure this bios dont change your motherbord into a brick ^^ So it's a lottery. In this caser i dont know how look blade insaide but i dont think this will be imposible if like i write eirler socket will match, there will be a way to remove old pcu and he find custom bios from a reliable source.

    On Blade cpu and gpu are internal, soldered. So it’s impossible, unless you have master degree on soldering;) you have to replace entire motherboard. And unlike some laptops manufacturers you can’t find official bios online. 1,1ghz cpu OP mentioned isn’t Blade laptops, maybe low power MacBook 12 cpu, Core m, Celeron or ultrabook U cpu which is mostly soldered.

    Ok i will tell in this case even if you do this some how on hardwere side but i dont think so for averege person is even posible :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: without modified bios version this will dont enything else then the cpu lineup he have if bios is more locked he dont run the cpu models that is not in offer on blade from the time this was selling. Finding custom bios that unlock cpu list of cmpatibility is more hard to find ^^ if this bios have one error or error, or compability issue with motherbord this will be end of notebook.

    I will say to autor of this topic dont try it's pointles. Buy desktop or something from last year the price will be lower.

    That’s what I said at first. I just gave some vision on a possibilities cpu upgrade if OP has socketed cpu. There’s a lot tutorial video out there for specific brands.

    When notebook is simular build like macbook Apple amazing technology idea to build components into motherboard it not worth time and money to upgrade anything. If someone with no specific eqmipment and knowlage want to do something cost of replacment is almost last year medium price gaming notebook. The worst with you can imagine is getting parts that will work and like i say above bios one bad move and dead motherboard;/. Everyone who want do something with upgrade is not every hardwere will work even is from the same year. If notebook run celeron will not run next gen even the next in lineup cpu becose some manufature lock bios and it's no way to tell if on this or another the lock is present. I write this post to make sure people take consider this when they look for something like that.
