Replacing a notebook CPU is not for the faint hearted, is often not possible but if you want to give it a try here is a guide to doing it click here

this notebook can take is a

T9300

If you can find one and with this model you may have to take out the keyboard to get to the cpu + HSF.

For portable comuters the only 'Upgrade' available for the normal 'user' is memory.
All else is out of the question as the machines are made totally inegrated,
A hobbyist may well have a go for the hell of of it.
But parts avbailability even for a hobbyist may well be the stumbling block.
The 'Mobile' CPU for example is a different 'animal' to the regular desktop variety.

does pc world do cpu upgrades at all? if it really is to much trouble i might as well get a new laptop

You have the max amount of ram installed.
A 2.5Ghz core2duo will set you back £200+
A faster hard drive will set you back £50+

Thats about £250 plus fitting.

The hp dv 2535ea is worth around £350 used with warranty so look at what you can get for around £600.

What do you want to do that you can not do with the present HP one. Gaming?

If you want it for games You are going to have to shell out a lot of Dosh. The upgrade rout is a wast of time. You have a Mobil CPU in it at the moment. If you did fit what you want it would be overheating
