In my previous post, I discussed about How you can disable the Metro Style UI on Windows 8 and in this post we will implement a simple trick through which we will change your processor from Core i3 to Core i7.
This trick is pretty awesome and I use it often among my friends to flaunt my computer skills. Now, you can also feel like a geek by simply trying this tweak on your friends computer.
It’s completely hassle free task and you can do it in just 5 minutes. So, let’s get the magic trick started.
Change the name of your processor in Windows
Step 1) On Windows, press Windows Button + R, it will open the Run command prompt. Type “regedit” to open the registry editor.
Step 2) Now, Registry Editor will be opened. Double click the option “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE“.
Step 3) A new Menu will open. Select, the option “HARDWARE“.
Step 4) Again, a new Menu Box will appear. Select, “Description” and from the next menu select “System“.
Step 5) From the next option that loads, select “Central Processor“.
Step 6) From the next menu that appears, select “0 (zero)”. A list of items will appear on the right side. Now, select the option “Processor Name”.
Step 7) Double click “Processor Name” option and then edit the name you want to give. You can also change the clock speed of the processor. In my case, it is changed from Core i3 to Core i7.
Step 8) After you have made the changes just check the System Details, you will be astonished to see a new processor running inside your machine.
Note :- In case you didn’t like the changes and want to revert back, you can just restart the computer to get the default settings.
