HP2000 Notebook PC, model #E0M17UA#ABA CPU replacement

Simple question, I am wondering if HP2000 Notebook PC, model #E0M17UA#ABA with an AMD processor is soldered to the board or if it is replaceable and if so which part number or catalog can I use to locate a replacement. the 1.3ghz processor is not enough for my wife and I'd like to replace it with 2.3 or something similar.

Here is the Service Manual:

 

Manual

 

See Pages 16-17. Each different processor option has its own motherboard part number which means the processor is soldered to the board. You will also see that in the instructions for replacing the fan/heatsink. The Intel models have socketed processors and the AMDs are soldered. 

 

You might consider an upgrade from 4 to 8 gigs and/or a solid state drive if the better half is complaining about the laptop being slow. I can't blame her. There are cell phones with better processors than the E300. 

 

The A6-5200 at 2 ghz is the best AMD processor motherboard for that model. If you can replace the CPU you could install a different motherboard. It is part number 730573-501. $311 from H.P.:

So replacing the motherboard is an option...figured there would be driver issues. I'll try that then, thank you!

No since it is AMD to AMD you should be able to boot the new motherboard off the old hard drive. If it is Windows 8 it will not even make you reauthenticate Windows. The Key Code is stored in the BIOS.
