Hi everyone,

 

Basically, I am looking to upgrade my laptop's CPU however, it is soldered onto the motherboard. Therefore, I decided I would need to replace the entire motherboard which isn't a problem for me as there are plenty out there. My existing CPU is an Intel i5 Dual Core at 2.6GHz and I am looking to replace it with an AMD A10-7300 with four cores. My problem is that I have no idea how complex this process will be, will my existing version of Windows accept a change from Intel to AMD and will I need to eradicate all Intel drivers from my computer by wiping my hard drive?

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
