Need to change the processor

I have tried cleaning the CPU fan. I replaced the thermal heatsink too...twice. Still it runs pretty hot. ~90-95'C.

Was thinking of changing the same to something new. Can somebody pls let me know what would be a good replacement to the same.

The manual for your laptop says that:

Mobile AMD Turion 64 processor ML-28/ML-30 or higher

Mobile AMD Sempron processor 2600+ to 3000+ or higher

are supported, that is where I would start out with if anything. I believe it's a PITA to change the CPU in one of those. The manual is available at a list for CPU's is at AMD and here is a least of the Turion 64 for the mobile computing market

Remember that speed and heat go together and that in order to make your computer more effective I would also look into increasing/changing memory and possibly optimizing your OS. Good Luck.

Check this website for all compatible socket 754 processors:

You'll want to be sure your motherboard/laptop BIOS will support the CPU you select. You should be able to check the manufacturers website for this information.

It looks like the highest performing CPU is the AMD Socket 754 3700+. The processors are running around $70 on eBay.
