    Yes, you can perform that upgrade. However, I'm not sure how Acer works as far as blocking hardware components by way of BIOS. For example, my T60p would not have accepted the T61/p's Intel 4965AGN card without a BIOS hack. However, the Atheros 11a/b/g/n was on the whitelist, and it just so happened that I much preferred the Atheros WiFi N card anyway. :D

    I think you'll be alright with a CPU upgrade, though, but remember, it almost always voids any warranty that you may have left on your machine. If you do end up needing service, make sure you keep that original CPU around, so that you can swap it out for warranty purposes. :D

    I was searching about CPU, and realised that is guide has not been updated in more than two years. If it's outdated, it should not be in the sticky as it does NOT help people searching for information.

    tashiba satellite m65-s9062 Old I know. But I am looking to upgrade cpu from pentium m 740 to the 780. Is this machine bios locked ?I can find a used 780 on ebay for $60. I am increasing the ram from 1gb to 2gb(max allowed). Is there a bios hack/mod for this? My new lap top is a HP and I hate it. White list out the butt.
