So I have an Asus X58C, a very old machine with low performance standards even for its time,but that's not the point here. It has a Celeron 220 which theoretically is made for full desktop PCs, but Intel decided to put it in a laptop, and I want to upgrade to a Core 2 Duo T9400 which is at years difference.
But the big "oof" is that I read somewhere that PBGA is not compatible with BGA. I don't care about the overheat or the performance loss because of the higher TDP(I will buy an external fan cooler and I will lower the speed and voltage).
Can I upgrade it? Or am I stuck with this desktop CPU on a laptop

No, that CPU cannot be readily upgraded because it's soldered to the motherboard.

Isn"t that the GPU? I mean,by no offence, I want to change only the CPU and the SiS dedicated GPU is sticked to the MTB from what I know. When I was little I "accidentally" burned the CPU. I don't know how,but I managed it, so I think it can be changed.
