Gateway CPU upgrade

Specs: Windows 7, M330/4G

Does anyone know if it is possible to upgrade the CPU on a laptop Gateway NV59? which has right now a Intel i3-M330?

This CPU is a Dual Core but would like to put a Quad Core i7-740QM 1.73 GHz Processor if it is possible or in any case a Intel Core i5-560M.

Have no idea if it is possible the upgrade anyway, and like (love) the Laptop just would like to get more from it, so if it is possible the upgrade and someone can recommend a CPU would be grate too.

"that would be stupid"

Excellent answer! I'm in complete agreement. You should have bought a better laptop in the 1st place.

I'm not sure if an i5 or i7 would even work in your system but did you even look at what it would cost? $250 minimum.
