Hi:

 

The processor is an integral part of the motherboard and cannot be upgraded unless you replace the motherboard with one listed in chapter 3 of your notebook's service manual that may come with a better processor.

You're very welcome.

 

You can look up the part number of a motherboard you may be interested in (chapter 3) and, see if HP has one in stock.

 

Make sure you get the part number that has a Windows product key in the BIOS.

 

You should be able to use the same memory and hard drive.

Don't be surprised if it costs as much as you paid for your notebook.

 

Also make sure to check if you need a different heat sink for the more powerful processor. 

 

The heat sink/fan parts can also be found in chapter 3.
