Hello, and welcome to the forum!! I tried to do some searching around for you but what you really need to find out is the motherboard's model number so that we can look up the specifications of it. This is what will tell us what CPU's are supported on it. I am fairly certain that you will be limited to socket FM1 APU's (APU = CPU + integrated graphics on the same silicon die) though, which ones specifically, can only be answered by looking up the motherboard's specs.

What you are looking for is an AMD Socket FS1 APU. Any other socket APU will not work, and your laptop cannot support a CPU, so the AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition 3.80GHz is out of the question as well as any AMD FX CPU. The best you can probably get is the AMD a8-3500M APU. That's the fastest APU AMD has developed within the 35 watt thermal envelope which your laptop was designed for. You cannot get the 3510, 3530, or the 3550 APU without risking it overheating, as those are 45 watt APU's. Ok, so now you have this APU and you have installed it. There is no guarantee that your BIOS will have the correct code to initialize it. The computer may not boot, or it may boot at a reduced speed. In my experience, finding the information to see if your BIOS can support the CPU/APU is near impossible. It's a risk you need to be willing to take if you are really serious about upgrading the APU.

As for pricing of the A8-3500M, you can find it on ebay for sale around 80-100 US dollars with most allowing you to return it within 14 days.
