    Sorry but I don't think it is possible to upgrade the processor on that I believe everything is soldered permanently to the motherboard. Also it is a very old laptop at this point and even finding a compatible processor (if it was possible) would be improbable. You would need the proper BIOS for your motherboad (which you could possibly find but it'd be a crapshoot) also the design of your laptop was made specifically for one processor, if you upgrade then you have to consider how much heat it would generate and how much power it would draw. Overall it just doesn't make sense to upgrade IMO.

    Here are the original processors (same motherboard and heatsink):
