Hi everyone! i need help!
I want to upgrade my amd e2-3000m apu with radeon hd 1.8 ghz to a better processor, i have seen the manual
for my notebook and in the supported processor page there are no amd apu processor and as much as i know apu processors are the ones with the integrated graphics card or i am wrong? i dont know how this works but if i replace my amd e2-3000m with any of the supported processors, what will happen to my integrated graphics card, im cofused :D
and will this notebook support a 120gb ssd?

I hope you enjoy your visit to the HP Support Forums. I understand you have questions about an upgrade. I will be glad to help you.
You have one of the notebooks that the graphic card can be changed to any one of the one listed.
It does not show any SSD for this notebook, but that does not mean it can not take it. That is only 1 slot for a hard drive so you would have to remove the current hard drive. I like hybrid drives for notebooks.
Please keep me informed of how things went.
If you require further assistance, let me know and I will gladly do all I can to help you.

Whoa!!! Some misinformation in both directions here:
The Manual you have posted is not for that model because the E2 processor is not listed.
E2 processors are soldered to the motherboard. There is no way to upgrade the video short of replacing the motherboard. Hate to step in from outside but I don't want to see anybody spend any money on something that will not work.
This is the right manual:

Normally I have no problem advising but you say you have an E2 AMD processor but none of the manuals I have found list that processor and as far as I know such processors are not removeable. So we are having a disconnect here. Can you post a picture of the processor? You have to carefully study the manual and figure out which motherboard you have and what processors work on that motherboard. The whole long list of processors is not meant to indicate that any of those processors can be installed on any of the motherboards. I am a little nervous suggesting that somebody who did not know all AMD and all Intel processors are incompatible should be tearing apart a laptop but willing to proceed.
