Hello

I want to upgrade my processor but i'm still confused about what processor should i use on my laptob because i search in a lot of forums that processor cant change simply like ram for example so i wish if someone told me about what processors(i5) that will work and compatible with my device

Information about my device : my laptob model is sony vaio pcg-71811m
motherboard: model: vaio -chipset: intel Sandy Bridge -SouthBridge: Intel HM65

and i want to know about if i put a bad(not compatible) processor on my laptob what will happening.

Thank you a lot :).

Find the specifications of your current Motherboard. Find a CPU that has the same operating specifications as the motherboard. It is that simple!

Here is the spec sheet for what you HAVE. https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/intelligent-systems/huron-river/core-mobile-qm67-hm65-platform-brief.html

Now you need to get the specifications from there, and find one that has the same specs!

thank you a lot <3

this is my cpu model http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/CPUs/Intel/Core_i3_Mobile/i3...(PGA).html

and i find that may those processors can work on my device http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-Intel_(chipsets)/HM65_Express.html

because they have the same specs as mine am i right ?

Yes, just make certain your CLOCK speed is same. Also, you need to read about best practices when replacing CPU chipsets. FOLLOW all instruction sets that come with the new CPU!
