Can I upgrade my laptop CPU?

So current laptop is the model here Compaq Presario CQ61-410US. It came stock with 2GB Ram and an AMD Sempron II M120. Motherboard is the HP 363 F, Socket S1 (S1G3). Chipset is AMD 785G, TDP max is 25w. I want to upgrade to the AMD Turion II which has same Socket S1 (S1G3) but the TDP is 35 and mine currennt is 25. Also U can't find if it's the same chipset. Here are the links to my current processor and the ones I was looking at:

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/AMD-Turion%20II%20Ultra%20Dual-Core%20Mobile%20M660%20-%20TMM660DBO23GQ.html - Turion II M660

So can I upgrade to any of these, I should be able to right? I saw a couple a lot of people on here on TH and on other sites saying that they put in a processor with more TDP than the current one and had no problems. One guy even said that he put a quad core 45w into a dual core 21w with no problems.

  1. The only thing that I know of that can be replaced in laptops is the RAM.Other than that laptops are sealed up and make it impossible to upgrade.
  2. Actually that's not true, plenty of people have did upgraded their laptops CPU's. It's not that hard it's just different for every laptop.
