I want to upgrade my processor in my HP Pavilion dv4-2162nr Entertainment Notebook

My computer has an intel I3 Processor and I want to know how can I make it possible to change it for an Intel Core i7 Processor Extreme, I heard that there is a version of this processor for laptops. My computer is the HP Pavilion dv4-2162nr Entertainment Notebook, I would like to know if this is possible with this processaor or at least one that works faster, so if I change it for the intel core i7 extreme I would like to install the latest processor that is possible to make it works faster.

This link is for my computer specifications HP Pavilion DV4-2162nr

This link is for the Inter Processor that I want to install Intel Core i7 Processor Extreme

The processor page you have linked is for a desktop processor series which you will never be able to install in a laptop. It might be possible to install a laptop version of an i7, however.
