Need to upgrade processor

I have a 3 year old Time computer which has, apparently, an old fashioned 800 mhz AMD processor, about the size of 2 cigarette packets which cannot be removed to upgrade. Why can't I just snip the wires and solder on another one?

The rest of the chips and eqiupment on the motherboard would not support a larger CPU.

Thanks for that. I'll just have to look for a cheap tower unit as the monitor, etc are working perfectly well. Cheers Fruit Bat.
