    Hello, I'm planning on swapping a laptop's CPU with my laptop

    The laptop's cpu which i currently have is : https://www.cpu-upgrade.com/CPUs/Intel/Mobile_Celeron_Dual-Core/B800.html#chipset

    The one i'll be putting in : https://www.cpu-upgrade.com/CPUs/Intel/Core_i3_Mobile/i3-2350M_(PGA).html#chipset

    They have the same G2 Socket and everything is the same, only thing i'm afraid about is, if my BIOS will support it, but then the thought of everything being the same just gets to me and i keep thinking it will work, so i'm not completely sure if it will.

    Both Laptops :
    Acer Aspire 5349 : https://www.cnet.com/products/acer-5349-2418/
    HP Pavilion G6 : https://www.cnet.com/products/hp-pavilion-g6/specs/

    I have already checked the Acer forum and some person had posted an answer for the question some other person had asked, similar to mine, but this was the answer :

    "these are the officially supported CPUs:

    Core i3-2310M 2.10 4 5 GT/s 32 3MB L3 BGA1023 1.05V~ 1.1V

    Core i3-2330M 2.20 4 5 GT/s 32 3MB L3 BGA1023 1.05V~ 1.1V

    Core i3-2350M 2.30 4 5 GT/s 32 3MB L3 BGA1023 1.05V~ 1.1V

    Pentium B940 2 2 5 GT/s 32 2MB L3 rPGA988B 1.05V~ 1.1V

    Pentium B950 2.10 2 5 GT/s 32 2MB L3 rPGA988B 1.05V~ 1.1V

    Pentium B960 2.20 2 5 GT/s 32 2MB L3 rPGA988B 1.05V~ 1.1V

    Celeron B710 1.6 1 5 GT/s 32 1MB L3 rPGA988B 1.05V~ 1.1V

    Celeron B800 1.5 2 5 GT/s 32 2MB L3 rPGA988B 1.05V~ 1.1V

    I'm not an Acer employee."

    Thank you! :)

    I have upgraded from B950's to I3-2330m with no problems. If it is a supported CPU you should be good to go. However they are never 100% guaranteed to work. And nobody will ever guarantee it to work. Not even the manufacturer. There is only one way to find out. Good luck.
