Hi, David:


Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook:


Supported processors can be found on page 91:


You have quite a selection to choose from but I would check with HP technical support if your notebook is still in warranty to make sure the one you select will work.


Read the manual carefully to make sure you have the right motherboard for the PC regarding processors. As you can see, processors are specific to motherboard models 1.1, 1.2...
