Hi FireArmor, welcome to Geeks to Go!

Apparently your computer has an Intel Core Duo processor? Link. What specific model do you have?

Generally, notebook computers (laptops) are very expensive to upgrade and the performance increase doesn't justify the cost. It can also be very difficult to find notebook parts.

I think his laptop is similar to THIS if not the same. Also I don't know if its possible to Up the CPU, its not usual that HP allows that. Also most laptops don't have the option, however I will look it up.

Thank you! I sorta cheated since I knew HP usually has the same code for AMD and Intel since my cousin has one, lol. Also again I'll try looking but I don't know if its possible to upgrade the CPU.

If you have never upgraded a laptop I highly suggest you don't do this.
A better CPU will have higher heat output that could cause it to fry your CPU and other parts of your laptop. It will also void you warranty, without a doubt.
Laptops are not made to be upgradeable, while in some cases it can be done, unless you know exactly what your doing I highly advice you do not do this.
