I don't want to change my motherboard.could you guide me please?
AM3 CPUS are backwards compatible with AM2+ motherboard sockets. Depending on the specific motherboard you have, yes, you can upgrade the CPU. However, to recognize a newer CPU, you'll likely need a BIOS update. There's no guarantee that the BIOS update will recognize the new CPU.
