    CPU Upgrade Pentium 6100 to i3 in Toshiba L630

    Squizzy50

      I am currently upgrading an old Toshiba L630 PSK 60A-00E003 laptop.  It is a Socket G1 for the Pentium 6100 and my research shows I could go in the dual core processors to an I3-390M.  Will any of the I5 such as the 460M or 480M work in this old machine? as I notice they have the turbo frequency available.  Also, in my research I noticed that I should update the BIOS "Before" I install a new processor.  The Toshiba update site doesn't have an option for Win 10 so that doesn't help?.  This is my first real upgrade project so go easy on me.  Regards Squizzy.
