So current laptop is the model here Compaq Presario CQ61-410US. It came stock with 2GB Ram and an AMD Sempron II M120. Motherboard is the HP 363 F, Socket S1 (S1G3). Chipset is AMD 785G, TDP max is 25w. I want to upgrade to the AMD Turion II which has same Socket S1 (S1G3) but the TDP is 35 and mine currennt is 25. Also U can't find if it's the same chipset. Here are the links to my current processor and the ones I was looking at:

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/AMD-Turion%20II%20Ultra%20Dual-Core%20Mobile%20M620%20-%20TMM620DBO23GQ.html - Turion II M620

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/AMD-Turion%20II%20Ultra%20Dual-Core%20Mobile%20M640%20-%20TMM640DBO23GQ.html - Turion II M640

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/AMD-Turion%20II%20Ultra%20Dual-Core%20Mobile%20M660%20-%20TMM660DBO23GQ.html - Turion II M660

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/AMD-Turion%20II%20Ultra%20Dual-Core%20Mobile%20M600%20-%20TMM600DBO23GQ.html - Turion II M680

So can I upgrade to any of these, I should be able to right? I saw a couple a lot of people on here on TH and on other sites saying that they put in a processor with more TDP than the current one and had no problems. One guy even said that he put a quad core 45w into a dual core 21w with no problems.
