It is a Compaq Presario CQ57-212NR LW443UA#ABA. currently holds an AMD  C-50 1Ghz processor.

According to what I see in the Maintenencve & Service guide, replacing the systemboard is the only means of upgrading the processor.

 

The AMD processor is a BGA type and is soldered onto the systemboard  with the chipset.

 

Your notebook is non upgradeable, in terms of the AMD processor.
