Can I swap the same model amd motherboard to intel motherboard. Visually they look the same. Will the bios ''understand'' the swap?? I want to swap HP dv7 pavilion (wa153ea) amd motherboard to the same model intel motherboard. I do understand that I will need different RAM and CPU.
You can't swap CPUs from AMD -> Intel without changing the board.
But if you can pick up an entire board for the same model laptop, by all means, the switch is possible because it's an entirely new board (BIOS is on the board itself, not the laptop).
You will need to reinstall Windows completely. In most cases, there's a fairly significant performance advantage to doing so - the AMD CPUs on my HP were much slower than the Intel ones for the same chassis.
If the laptop has Intel lineup attached to it then yes practically it is possible. But is it sensible to do so? No. Don't plan on doing that because it complete waste of money and with spending that much possibility of success is only 80% even in professionals hand. It doesn't simply end there it will end up causing lot of trouble in many ways and will have high probability of failure.
Simply It is extremely bad idea don't waste your money on it and instead add bit more to budget and go for a new laptop with Intel chip-set.
Thank you for response. The reason for me to do it is because amd mobo is fried - completely dead. And when I am looking for amd mobo on ebay, they are 20-30 pounds more that intel, and intel have more choices. It is not question of improving performance - it is question about getting laptop alive
Thank you again.
