Problems which would make cpu replacement impossible:

1. Current cpu is soldered down

2. BIOS doesn't understand any cpu other than the one that it already has

3. Power supply may be too weak

4. Weak cooling

5. Finding a store that actually sells this cpu

Even if you could upgrade your processor, the fact of the matter is that an SSD is the better performance upgrade for a laptop as the HDD is the slowest system device and it really holds a laptop back.

From firsthand experience with an older HP dv6 laptop, I speak from experience.

Technical ignorance is NOT a destiny it is a choice. Do your homework so that you can make technically informed decisions and not be duped by advertising hype or mis-information stated as fact when its not.

Yeah correct thanks a lot! But the cpu isnt soldered i have physically removed it a couple of times from the socket! And i also feel that a higher TDP cpu wont be recommended for a 25W socket too! Thanks a lot both of you for the help and the advice!
