I got an aspire 4520 running on amd turion 64x2 processor and found that the processor is faulty. Can i replace the processor and where can i purchase the processor as i came to known its quit expensive.


You can replace the CPU if the new one is compatable with the computer.
Basically get the same CPU from a site like
  • newegg
  • ebay
then take the laptop apart and discharge yourselve after taking out the power supply and battery.
Make sure to apply new thermal compound to the CPU prior to starting the laptop back up.
Hope this helps
