I have a Presario V5119US laptop and would like to upgrade the CPU. It has an AMD Turion ML-32 and I would like to install an AMD Turion ML-44. The only differences that I can find is a speed increase from 1.8 Mhz to 2.4 Mhz and an L2 cache increase from 512 kb to 1Mb. Does anyone know of any problems that I might encounter by making this upgrade?

Thank You

You'll find your battery life go down (probably by a significant amount, my guess under 30 minutes), and your notebook will be hotter. Whether or not your notebook can take the delta TDP, I don't know, and there isn't much of a way to know, but your fans will probably just run for longer at higher speeds.

I usually us my laptop in motel rooms or where I have a power source so the battery issue isn't critical for me.

Thanks alot.
