Hi
I found an old Dell N4030 laptop in my office which monitor was broken
when I took it to the repair shop, they said this old version of laptops are capable to change the cpu because it's not soldered or glued to motherboard
but may be the motherboard could not work probley with new cpu and gets heat Problem

I want to upgrade from Core i3 370m to Core i5 480m which is 20% better for only watching movies and use old version of photoshop and office.

So, I want to know the motherboard can handle this change? uh i mean the motherboard used for dell n4030 i3 and dell n4030 i5 is same?

sorry for my bad english!
