Question about Toshiba Satellite P15-S409 Notebook/Laptop/Notebook Power Adapter -19V - 6.3A (Replacement) (839438734542) AC Adapter
I was just wondering if I could upgrade the motherboard and the CPU in this unit. Windows XP support is over in less than a month and I want to get more RAM memory than the maximum of 2G. Thanks
Motherboard is usually a big no when it comes to laptops as that motherboard was specific to that laptop. That is the way they are made. It will support a max 2GB of RAM, according to the specs.
The CPU? Well it depends on if, and that is a big if, the motherboard will support a faster P4 proc. I believe the fastest P4 that was made was 3.8Ghz, but have never found one. Then will the motherboard support a proc that fast? You have to look at the heat/cooling issue also.
If you don't want to get a new lappy, and don't have 2GB of RAM in it, then get more RAM. A 2.8Ghz with 2GB of RAM will run Win 7 fairly well.
