Hi, I recently bought a laptop from Office Depot, for some mild gaming. The only problem is the processor isn't quite what I thought. I want to put an A-10 Processor in it, but I don't know where to get the processor(because its got to be a mobile processor) and to make sure it works with that laptop.

Here is the laptop: http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/973604/Toshiba-Satellite-C55Dt-A5174-Laptop-Computer/

You need to make sure not only that it will fit, but that the laptop can dissipate any extra heat from the faster CPU and that the BIOS will work with the CPU. Check with Toshiba, and also think about how much you want a faster laptop vs. the chances of you breaking something or frying the motherboard during the upgrade.

You may just want to sell your laptop and do a bit of research to find a laptop that will run games.
