Hi,

 

The following link shows specs of your computer:

Only one thing you can upgrade: RAM. Please use the following manual (page 45) to get more information, part number and how to add/replace RAM:

You can upgrade CPU and video because BGA processors, like this one, are soldered on a motherboard, as a result, upgrading or replacing them is extremely difficult or you have to replace motherboard. Buying new machine could be cheaper.

 

Regards.

I think @banhien meant to say you can't upgrade because your processor is soldered to the motherboard. the CQ57 series was designed to be an entry level doorbuster special and if your needs have moved past it you just need to buy a new laptop. The idea of major upgrades to an entry level laptop is just not economically viable.
