Can I upgrade my processor in my pavilion dv7 4179nr laptop from a 1.70 GHz to a 2.0+ GHz processor & if so, what kind & how much do they usually run? I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.
Supported processors can be found in chapter 1, pages 1 & 2.
Part numbers for processors can be found in chapter 3.
Enter the part number in the box at the link below and you can see what HP charges for them.
I would look on eBay and see what is for sale there.
