Hello everyone. I recently spilled a drink on my laptop and fried pretty much everything. Being a bit short on cash I inherited my parents laptop which needs quite a bit of work. It's a Presario CQ62 64 Bit and it runs a AMD v120 s1-638 pin processor. I've done a LOT of looking and it seems (even according to AMD's website) that this model can't even be upgraded anymore. It's not even in AMD's list of processors anymore. Are there any options out there?

I'm not looking for anything too fancy, just enough to play a game or two that aren't overly intensive. They already work fine for solo play but when I get into groups and we get into some graphic intense situations I get extremely choppy. I've already upgraded to 8G RAM and thought about upgrading the video card but it's a Radeon HD 4200, which I know is far from "great" but upgrading the processor from a 25W will be a lot more cost effective if it can be done.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Nope, your only option is to upgrade to a new laptop.

I am not sure where you can start a new thread but I want to see if some knows the answer to my dilema.  I am trying to find a CPU that can run Hyper-V which is a program from Microsoft server 2008 R2 and Server 2012.  I bought the CPU FX-6350 after calling AMD support but He was wrong it did not support it. Can anyone help me?

Did you enable AMD-V virtualization in BIOS? The cpu should support it, if you can't find that option in bios, then your motherboard is the culprit.
