I am looking to upgrade my CPU, but I am not sure what to buy. I have a HP 2000-219DX with an AMD E-350 FT1 BGA 413-Ball processor.

Unfortunatly, that is not possible, unless you are really good with a soder gun, and maybe not even then, BGA processors are sodered onto the motherboard, making upgrading the CPU virtually impossible. And even if you were good with a soder gun-finding a better, compatible CPU would be expensive and difficult. Sorry.

The least you could do is replace it with a new motherboard and CPU.

it might be possible if you could find a motherboard with a better CPU that would match that model laptop case-keep in mind, laptop motherboards are proprietary-made for the specific model laptop theyre being put in. You couldnt really buy one new, unless you custom ordered from the factory-which would probably be cheaper to buy a new laptop, or buy a used one from somewhere like say, ebay. Youd have to know exactly what your looking for, and your playing russian roullette with whether what you got actually works or not, or how long it will work.
