    Hello guys,

    I have a an HP pavilion dv6500 with the following specifications:

    OS Version: Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Home Premium , Service Pack 2, 32 bit
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7250 @ 2.00GHz, x64 Family 6 Model 15 Stepping 13
    Processor Count: 2
    RAM: 3069 Mb
    Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS, 128 Mb
    Hard Drives: C: Total - 146451 MB, Free - 7020 MB; D: Total - 6173 MB, Free - 1583 MB; H: Total - 476937 MB, Free - 251074 MB;
    Motherboard: Quanta, 30D2, 79.22, None

    I was wondering if there is any way that I can upgrade my processor to an intel core i3 or i5, is this possible? If so, How?

    Thanks in advance...

    In the first place, the socket for your processor has been retired by intel (and is not compatible with the i3, i5, or i7). In the second place, the processor is soldered onto the motherboard. So, in short, NOPE.
