Hello, recently i bought a new notebook from hp, a B5S11UA ( HP Pavilion dv6-7010us Entertainment ) with a AMD Quad-Core A8-4500M
 1.90Ghz.

I want to upgrade my laptop, can i buy a richland processor for my notebook? there is compatibility between trinity and richland? or do i have to buy an a10-4600m for my laptop?

It would require a BIOS update from HP to support newer units, which is extremely unlikely.
