You've got the i7-2630 at 2 ghz, 4 gigs RAM and the 1 gb HD 6570M video chip.
The top processor is an i7-2820QM at 2.3 ghz. You have the top video chip. Video is soldered to the motherboard so there is nothing you can do with video. Maximum RAM is 8 gigs.
Right now HP Manual are not accessible, but will come online in a day or so so post back if you need more specific instruction. The software you run is very demanding and if the laptop as configured is not getting the job done the upgrade to the highest processor and 8 gigs RAM will provide some boost but not a lot. You might want to consider a new laptop. The memory upgrade will be cheap and easy but the processor upgrade is somewhat expensive.
You might also want to consider a solid state drive. Fully upgraded with the processor, memory, and a solid state drive, your laptop would be still useable and even powerful but still about 60-70% the power of a new i7 6th or 7th gen laptop.
