Question about Acer M3920-E4142u Power Supply 575 Watt Upgrade
Does anyone have a manual for the Acer M3920 motherboard. I would like to see if it is possible to upgrade the Intel i5 process to an Intel i7 and how to do it. I would also like to make use of the unused SATA header plug on the motherboard. Additionally, I notice that motherboard says S/PDIF socket but I cannot find any information on this or the part to use with it. Thanks.

I did some digging on trusted sites on the Internet and it looks like a 1.3GHZ is the highest they go. They try a 1.5GHZ and they said,"The notebook is not powerfull enough to handle it."

In general it is possible to upgrade the processor of a laptop, the socket has to be the same. A faster processor may or may not produce more heat than your current one, the heat output is mainly distinguished by the watts the cpu uses.
It is though not very practical to change the CPU. Same socket means that you are bound to processors of the same era, you cannot get a state of the art architecture processor (like i3, i5, i7) with the same socket your P6200 has.
Next point is that it is not that easy to change the processor inside of a laptop, the parts are very tightly screwed into the casing making it hard to do anything in there. additionally you are likely to destroy something or unintentionally wont be able to fit all the pieces in place afterwards.
Looking at the list of pentium processors at wikipedia. It says the P6200 uses a Socket G1, as you can see in that list there are only four CPUs using this socket, and only one that would count as better as yours. So clearly: No, not worth it.
It is possible, but I would not recommend it.
