  1. Yes, you can upgrade from your dual core to a faster dual core or a quad core . . . they use the same socket. The issue will be finding out what your BIOS supports.

    What brand/model PC do you have?

    If its not a pre-made, what motherboard are you using?
  2. an HP Pavilion model a6813w
  3. Your motherboard supports a few cpu upgrades:

    Click on "Processor Upgrade Information". Any of those can be bought and installed. In the process, you will need to remove and re-install the heat sink/fan.
