Is there a way to upgrade the CPU of this particular model?
If so which CPU is supported.
I saw some A10 cpus but they are rated as 35 watt but my cpu is only 15 watt will it be supported?

I believe it is an HP 15-g009ax Notebook, its specs
No, you can't upgrade CPU by swapping it. To be able to upgrade to different CPU you need different System board which contains motherboard, CPU, video card and Operating system because all 4 components are on one piece of hardware.
Page 56 of the following manual shows a list of System boards for the series.

It is not possible to upgrade the CPU as it is integrated on the motherboard (soldered), so the only way would be to replace the motherboard which would be really expensive. However, in your case, this is not possible as you already have the most powerful CPU in that series of notebooks, so there will not be a motherboard with a more powerful CPU.

What you could do for some extra performance would be to add 4GB of DDR3L 1600MHz RAM and replace the HDD with a 2.5" SSD.
Hope it helps,
