    Processor upgrade


    Hello
    I have an acer aspire V5-122-P and I have got the AMD A4-1250 APU and was wondering if it is possible to upgrade my processor (if I can find the A6 version as I have been having trouble finding it :P ) My motherboard is an acer one. And my socket is an FT1 and my chipset model ID1536.
    If you need more information let me know and I can see if I can find it
    Thanks

    I don't think you can upgrade that CPU as it has BGA 769 (Ball Grid Array) and means it's soldered to the Motherboard, you may have to take it to a shop and replace the CPU by a professional.
