Solved! Laptop CPU switching

Nov 16, 2018
Hi there, I have currently an HP EliteBook 8440p with an Intel Core i5 m520 2.40 ghz processor, I have a problem with it, it uses Iron lake graphics in its processor, which Is crap.

Anyways, i have another laptop (Dell Inspiron 5520) With an i5 3210m Processor, with the somewhat "Decent" (For playing low spec games) integrated GPU of Intel HD 4000 that has Dx11 support, I was wondering if it could be possible to switch-out the Dell's processor with the HPs processor, because the Dell's trashed, like completely trashed but its CPU is still in-tact.

I do not know if the CPU is soldered to the motherboard or not, but not having Dx11 compatibility is murdering me
