The only way to upgrade a soldered CPU is to replace the entire mainboard.  The N5040 does not have a soldered in CPU but is limited to Sandy Bridge (2000-series) CPUs.

Have a similar doubt, i have the same n4050 laptop, but i have an Intel Core i5 2430m, i want to upgrade to a quad-core CPU like the i7 or a dual core i7, but for temp reasons, im not too sure yet.

but i think, if i reinstall windows, the temp problems should be solved...
