Update processor on a laptop

In a previous project, I used an old laptop motherboard as a central piece for my all in one touch computer. ┬áLast week I received a new CPU that I will install in it to refresh it a little bit.Because the laptop is from 2007, the components are a little bit dated and the system (Windows 8) is a little bit slow. Because the technology is a bit behind, I managed to score a top of the line CPU on Aliexpress for 25$, going from a Core 2 T5250 (1.5Ghz) to a Core 2 T9300 (2.5Ghz). Here’s the short project log on how I did it.
