Hi, this is my first post on this forum so, I might as well say hi :). I currently want to buy a Sony Vaio svs131c1em that has an I5 (the seller didnt specify what gen, I hope by the end of the day he'll give me more details), a gt640 LE, 8gb of ram and a 480gb SSD. I was wondering if its possible to upgrade the cpu. Does it have a socket or I might need to solder and whatnot (not really confident to be honest). Thanks in advance guys.
3 questions: Based on the model that I listed above is there a way to do the following: 1. Upgrade the CPU from a I7Core; to a faster one? Is the CPU soldered to the motherboard? I went to the official Sony Forums and a moderator finally just told me that they don't recommend updating the CPU. 2. Memory Upgrade: Is it possible on this laptop? I have 12 gigabytes installed now. 3. Is their a way to Force Windows 10 Pro to use only the Dedicated Nvidia 735M Graphics? I played in the Bios and think I disabled the Onboard Chipset Intel HD 4000 graphics. Also I went to device mgr and disabled the Intel Graphics under Display Adapters. It flashes, loads the Basic Windows VGA Driver from 2006, I believe.
