Here is the Service Manual:
You have the Pentium B950. The motherboard is only able to accept Pentium processors. See p. 19. The only "upgrade" you can do is to a slightly faster Pentium processor like the P6300. Not worth the effort in my opinion. The video is also limited by the motherboard. The video chip is soldered on. You have the Intel HD video and there is a motherboard with discrete video which would be somewhat better. If you were going to do that you might as well also get the motherboard that would accept an i5 processor. But the cost of the new motherboard and processor and heatsink would certainly exceed what you paid for that laptop. The CQ57 series was widely offered as a low-priced doorbuster special. You would be much better off with a new laptop.
