Upgrading the processor

Product Name: Compaq 15-h050nf
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)



Ive looked online and the instructions given have lead me nowhere, so Im going to ask here and hopefully someone can just give me a straight up answer.


Basically, I desperately want to upgrade the processor on this laptop (Compaq 15-h050nf). I understand that if I am to upgrade, I need to know if other processors are compatible with the motherboard, and if so, which ones. Ive looked online but the instructions given for finding out have lead me absolutely nowhere. So if anyone knows  can you please tell me?

Re: Upgrading the processor

Well I am sorry to say that the processor on your laptop is soldered to the motherboard. The only way to upgrade would be to buy a whole different motherboard. The cost of that is going to approach or exceed what you paid for the laptop.
