Is it possible to change processors in a computer?

Home More advice Computers & Tech

I have an HP Pavilion DV6 laptop, really nice machine, with an AMD A8 quad-core processor. I like the computer, but lately I've found it has been running like garbage like several other computers in my household with AMD processors. Some people love them, others hate them, I'd just like to try having a different processor in this machine to see if theres a difference in performance. Is this possible to change without too much modification? Or would I be better off buying a whole new computer?
