In most laptops the Processor is not upgradeable. A Laptop of that vintage if it is upgradeable, the upgrade plus the labor would probably be as much as the laptop is worth. And it would not add appreciably to it's value.

HP Pavilion dv7-1273cl Entertainment Notebook PC (NB247UA#ABA)

It comes with Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit and 4 GB of RAM.

It's running a 64-bit operating system, so you should max it out with 8 GB of RAM.

It uses 200-pin DDR2 PC2-6400(DDR2-800), 1.8 volt, unbuffered, non-ECC SODIMM modules.

As Jay already said, the majority of laptops aren't processor-upgradeable.

Adding more RAM is usually the only hardware upgrade option.
