  1. Just go get a new notebook. You are wasting time and money trying to upgrade that old thing.

    if it was that simple ;-) don't have new notebook money
  3. That new A8 will not fit into the old laptop, not to mention, OEM's (HP, Dell etc.) tend to have bios' on their mobo that limit CPU upgrades, so their is o guarantee that even one that fits would work (and would probably not add much)
  4. There isn't an upgrade for that old laptop that is worth the effort or money. If you still insist on trying, this has a list of processors that HP used for that series of laptop. Sometimes upgrades work, and sometimes they don't.
