The processor is an integral part of the motherboard.


You can't upgrade the processor without replacing the motherboard with one listed in your notebook's service manual that may come with a better processor.


Since your notebook is relatively new, the cost of a motherboard would exceed the cost that you originally paid for your notebook.
