Default Re: Changing processor on old IBM Thinkpad

I'm assuming you've got either a P3 650mhz or 800mhz. Those are the only procs I can find on the parts sites that I like. It would take some Googling to see if you can upgrade beyond those....

Upgrading the proc probably isn't that hard. You'll just need the service manual from IBM's site for the specific instructions. Basically you're probably just unscrew 4-6 screws from the bottom of the laptop, lift up (carefully) the keyboard, detach cable, and you'll see the innards. Then it's just a matter of unclamping and removing the cpu cooling apparatus and replacing the chip.
