Upgrading CPU for HP Pavilion dm1 Notebook PC

Hello,
I tried to search the cpu upgrade information by following the instructions the website gave me. And I got lost since there's no cpu upgrade information link. I tried to search my motherboard's specification for upgrading the cpu, but I'm totally out of idea how. So, here's the informations about my laptop. Is it possible for me to upgrade my cpu? If so, what kind of CPU would you recommend? thank you.

Operating System : Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
System model : HP pavilion dm1 Notebook PC (HP Pavilion dm1-3206au Entertainment )
BIOS : InsydeH20 version CCB.03.60.43F.12

Processor : AMD E-350 (2CPUs) 1.6 Ghz

RAM : 6GB

So, I wonder what kind of CPU match for my computer's specifications. If there's anything else you need, let me know. Thanks.

Re: Upgrading CPU for HP Pavilion dm1 Notebook PC

Is the E350 socketed or soldered to the motherboard?

Re: Upgrading CPU for HP Pavilion dm1 Notebook PC

So what is the bottom line? Can the CPU and motherboard on the DM1 be upgraded or not. I have upgraded memory to 8 mg and just received a 750 SSD Hard drive that i will have installed. Is that all i can do to this great little computer?

Looking for an answer to above question.  I love my HP Pavillion dm1 notebook and want to upgrade it.  Also one USB port is not functioning...was told need to replace the motherboard in order to fix.  Need some guidance
