  1. i would call tech support and ask what upgrade options you have. unfortunatley laptops are not very upgradable so you would be better off with a cheap desktop pc and upgrading the video card.

    Best of Luck,

    No you can't. According to HP's website your computer has an Intel Celeron and you are asking if you can put in an AMD CPU the answer is no. You can not put a AMD CPU in an Intel socket.
  3. No you can't put that cpu.you cannot put intel cpu in amd and vice versa.
  4. i have the amd cpu model for the cq62
  5. Are you sure? The website only list the Celeron as the only processor shipped with that model?

  7. Since they only list the Celeron on the website and I can't find anyother CPU support list my next move would be to call HP and ask their tech support.

    If this is your model then NO....... http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=4229796&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&task=&lang=en&cc=us
    socket S1 (638) and socket S1 S1G4 look the same and the chip will physically fit, however the voltages are different.....so they are not electrically compatible
