Hi there,

Unfortunately, you cannot replace the CPU in that laptop. Same with most laptops! They are designed like that so you have to buy a new one for better performance.

If your laptop is overheating there is a couple of things you can do.

  1. Dissemble the laptop and used compressed air to clean out the vents on the fan and chassis.
  2. While the laptop is mostly dissembled, you could re-paste the CPU with some new thermal paste. This might involve removing a heat pipe system, so you might have to google for a video to help you: HP dv6 cpu fan cleaning thermal paste change - YouTube this will help you.
  3. Use a laptop cooling pad to give some cool airflow underneath the laptop which will help the fans cool the CPU more.
Other than that there is not much more else you can do.

Good luck!

Hmmm ... Looking closer at the vendors description ... refers to it as a Socket M? I think that's an error. The MPN provided .... FF8062701065100 ... definitely refers to a i7 2860QM Socket G2 processor (the same socket as your i5 2510M).
