OK, I am a complete noob when it comes to laptops, I have a question. Is it possible to put a different processor in a laptop? I know that the board cannot be switched but I am under the impression that like a PC the same board can run different chips. I have an HP Pavilion ze 2000 that was just given to me. It had a sssssslllllllooooooowwwwwww AMD duron processor, but on doing research it SEEMED that I could put a Turion in that was way faster. I have put that in (pain in the butt, used to PC) and it won't turn on now. So question 2 is if I can switch the processor do I need to update bios or do anything special on a laptop that I wouldn't have to on a PC?
