As mentioned in the Title, I found this handy archived topic from 2014 below, as I was googling around. I've temporarily installed a Linux os for the time being, due to laptop problems on a diff laptop. Short and sweet, considering that I need an Llano AMD APU processor, compatible with the FS1-uPGA Socket, are there any i7 -- 6-core Processors I could consider upgrading with?
The boot times of this laptop are a little rough. It can take a good minute for things to start up, and I plan on eventually trading this OS out for windows 10, if I can upgrade the processor, stick an old 8GB Ram in, and eventually trade the HDD out for a WD Black.

You have a 2.5GHz/1.9GHz VISION A4 Technology from AMD with AMD Dual-Core A4-3305M Accelerated Processor
So, you can only use an AMD CPU without changing motherboard, heatsink...
These are the possible CPU upgrades.
You can upgrade to max 8GB of DDR3 1333MHz RAM
Example of RAM:
You would also get a great boost by replacing the hard drive with a 2.5" SSD.
Here is the service manual
Hope it helps,
