Pavilion g6
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, I have an HP Pavilion g6 and I was wondering if I could upgrade the CPU. I'm pretty sure it's possible because it's CPU is removable. If so, which processors are compatible?

Laptop Specs are;

Model: Pavilion g6-2228ca

Processor: AMD A6-4400M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics 2.70 GHz

RAM: 8.00 GB

OS: Windows 8(64-bit) upgraded to Windows 10(64-bit)
