    Gray1 many thanks for your reply, no I haven’t yet, the guy who repaired it was a bit vague as to what I was to get for him to upgrade, I’ll see if I can locate it later and post an update.

    After pokeing around a little more on the internet. I found another I3-380m that shows a socket PGA988. That one might be upgradeable. You need to find which one you have. I would download a program called HWinfo. It will show which socket you have. It is a free download. https://www.hwinfo.com/download/
