Im not planning on putting any faster one in it i just want it out to test on an old pcFrank is correct. Even IF it is possible to remove the processor, it is doubtful your laptop will support anything faster. Just because it is the same socket does not mean the cpu is supported. Unless whatever processor you want to install was an option when you purchased this laptop, it is highly doubtful that your swap will work.
Acer products are pretty low end and as such, upgrades, etc are [generally] not available.
Thanks for the help but am really not concerned about the pc because the screen has been broke for a while and it ia just very slow so i just took it apart for something to do.You can see where the cpu is attached to the board. You are not getting it out.
Next that is a cpu with an exposed die ie no heat spreader. The die is easy to crack. I would STOP messing with it; that is if you want it to work again. Carefully reinstall the cooler and put it back together. Make sure you clean both the cpu die and the cooler with 99% alcohol; apply new thermal compound and reassemble.
Ok thanks for the help im looking at a laptop right now thats only $180 and has core i5 and 6gb of ram. Might be a little upgrade lol.Even if you somehow get that Cpu out of the laptop it is extremely unlikely that it would fit and work in a Desktop motherboard.
You would be much better of researching what will work and then buying a Cpu on Ebay. If the desktop motherboard is old chances are the Cpus it can use are cheap to buy.
