To upgrade your going to have to take the laptop apart and remove the heatsink on top of the cpu, then disconnect the cpu, and then install another cpu in place of it, apply therman greeze and put the cpu heatsink back on. and reassemble your laptop.

I have acer aspire 4736z, can I upgrade the processor to 3.2 Ghz?


Please note that CPU upgrades in notebooks/laptops/netbooks are highly problematic because they depend on often uncertain motherboard specifications (different notebook models bearing the same series number in your question can have different internal and external specification and be based on different motherboards).

The most serious problem you face is that CPU upgrades in laptops/notebooks/netbooks inevitably require near complete disassembly and the correct reassembly of the computer. Inevitably, this type of work is best done by an experienced professional, trained for and capable of performing a warrantied repair. Understandably, the associated labor costs will be on the high side.

Also, upgrading the CPU requires the user to first risk expenditure on an item that cannot be returned to the seller or supplier if later found to be incompatible but could still be a potentially expensive replacement product, without being absolutely certain that is compatible with the motherboard for which it is intended.

So you will need to do extensive research on the specification of the precise motherboard of the precise model of your notebook. To do this, you will need the full, long, specific model number plus also the Serial Number (S/N) and Part Number (P/N) of the computer that are usually printed on a label underneath the computer. From these, you should obtain the P/N of the motherboard, then navigate to the support and product information pages of the motherboard manufacturer's website to verify the CPU compatibility specifications of the motherboard and then proceed from there.

Intel Pentium Mobile processor T4200 (1 MB L2 cache, 2 GHz, 800 MHz FSB, 35 W), or T3400 (1 MB L2 Cache, 2.16 GHz, 667 MHz FSB, 35 W), supporting Intel 64 architecture


Your notebook features the above Central Processing Unit (CPU) in its standard specification, according to Acer. This CPU is commonly referred to as a Dual Core / Intel Pentium M / 2.2GHz / 64 Bit Processor. This type and Model of Processor is outdated and the upgrade options available to you are limited.

The indications are that your best course of action would be to back up any important data stored on this notebook's Hard Disk Drive (HDD), restore the notebook to Factory Settings, sell it on eBay or CraigsList or any similar website popular, in your geographical location, for the buying and selling of Used Consumer Goods and then put any sale income raised towards a new, state-of-the-art notebook capable of performing the function(s) in which the current notebook is disappointing you and steering you towards radical thoughts such as CPU upgrades.

At the very least, consider several or all of the far easier, far cheaper and far less labor-intensive and labor-expensive upgrade options to improve the power, speed and performance of this notebook before contemplating a CPU Upgrade, such as, a Maximum Capacity RAM Upgrade, an Operating System (O/S) Upgrade, upgrading to a higher performance, higher Spin Speed and/or higher capacity HDD or newer technology Solid State Drive (SSD).

Your full notebook specification and CPU Upgrade Options can be found on the support pages of the official Acer and Intel websites below:

Can i up grade my single core cpu pen4 550 3,4GHz to a Quad core or dual core either one would help


Depends on the socket type.. Socket 423 and 478 do not support core duo or quad core processor types. However, if you have LGA 775 (aka socket T) your motherboard will support the following:
Intel Pentium 4 (2.60 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Pentium Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)

Celeron 540 upgrade


Aspire 4315 Specifications Specifications
Part Number
Varies by specifications
Processor / Speed
Intel Celeron mobile processor 530/540/550 (1 MB L2 cache, 1.73/1.86/2 GHz, 533 MHz FSB), supporting Intel 64 architecture
if you have a 2 Ghz processor installed, you will have to replace the motherboard to go with a faster CPU.. which will be spendy..
Hope this helps

CPU change


You might be able to get a faster Celeron to fit that socket however you have to make sure the heat sink will work and that it will not overheat the unit.

You might get away with 2 ghz but anything bigger than that might cause a problem.

Upgrade


it all depends on the motherboard, you can find free software on the internet that will tell you the make and model, or do it the old fashion way and look for the make stamped on the motherboard

The Phoenix - AwardBIOS v6.00PG only tell you the BIOS, not who makes the motherboard
