Dell Inspiron 17 5767 processor upgrade

Please Help - I want to upgrade a laptop that I have recently purchased to a quad core processor

  • Dell Inspiron 17 5767
    • Model: i5767-6370GRY
    • SKU: 5657250

If possible point me in the right direction for purchasing one compatible with this laptop!

Thank you!

RE: Dell Inspiron 17 5767 processor upgrade

Since the processor is soldered to the mainboard, the mainboard and CPU must be replaced together.  Beyond being expensive (think $300-400 or more), this will also void your warranty.

It appears that even the i7 model in this line is a dual-core -- so there are no quad-core CPU/board combinations available.  If you want the quad-core CPU, you'll need to look toward the Alienware or Precision systems.
