    Not sure you could or would want to upgrade your Processor, might be cheaper to buy another laptop.

    Go here for your Memory.

    On 99% of laptops the processor is not an upgradeable item. And certainly not on your HP. For the ram you would want to buy the same type as the ram already installed,
