I want to upgrade my processor from AMD A6 to AMD A10-4600M.
Spoke with AMD Tech Support, was told no problem!
But I cannot find a seller that has the AMD A10-4600M.

I too am thinking of upgrading my HP Sleekbook envy 6 1126ea from A6 to any A10 (the strongest the laptop supports).
I just have few questions;
1. What A10 is compatible to me?
2. Where can I buy one?
3. Do I have to install it my self.
Bonus: Do I have to take any additional steps in BIOS afterwards??
Thank You 🙂

1. AMD A10-4655M 2.8GHz/2.0GHz (4MB L2 cache)
2. Not sure. A quick Google search didn't turn up much. If you can give me your notebooks product number I can check on HP part surfer.
If you need help finding it, you can use the following link:
3. Either that or you can find a local computer repair shop that can do it for you.
Bonus: No it's not necessary, the motherboard supports that CPU. However it wouldn't hurt to have the most recent version.
Best of luck,

Hello and thank you for the straight forward responce. 🙂
My product number is C0V07EA (with 0 being "zero)
P.S- In regards to the instaling of the CPU.
How hard is it?
Can a self taught, "Youtube it if you dont know how" kinda guy like me install it?
Thank You again,

Actually... I just learned some bad news when trying to locate the part number for that CPU.
You will not be able to upgrade it. The reason that I can't locate the part number or a retailer that is selling it because it is not sold as a standalone CPU. It is soldered onto the motherboard. You would have to completely swap the motherboard out just to upgrade the processor.

Aside from that model that You mentioned.
Is this the case with every A10 APU Ulv mode swap with my A6 CPU?
Its just this particular A10 model is sold with CPU soldered to the motherboard?
because I was told by some people on Laptopforum that its basicaly: unplug old cpu from mother board and chuck in the new one...

Only two AMD CPUs for this model, both part of the system board. It looks like there is three iterations of each, maybe due to geographical differences.

Honestly it wouldn't be worth the effort in my opinion. I have a Macbook Pro and it is the same way. Upgrade the RAM, maybe install a SSD, but other than that, there's not much you can do to speed up a computer with this kind of setup.
Have a great day,
