    Which Chipset do you have? If you are unsure install the INTEL cpu identifer, and post the chipset ID, this allows us to look it up :)  (  https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28539  )

    If you are on a HM77 chipset you can use upto the I5's 2nd gen as long as the TDP isnt too high, if you are on the HM70 the highest is the Core 2 B980

    I think that only supports the Pentiums, the i3 series doesnt play nice and will force off the laptop randomly, but going to the one up isnt much of an upgrade either :(https://www.cpu-upgrade.com/CPUs/Intel/Pentium_Dual-Core_Mobile/B960.html

    Unsure, Here suggests the 2020m should work:

    https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/395175/acer-e1-531-2801-cpu-support-list/p1

    Which does support vtx, the 30 is pretty close so it *may* work but not 100% sure!
