Processor upgrade hp pavilion zv6000

I've got a hp pavilion zv6000 notebook with an Athlon 3200+ 64 processor.  I wanted to upgrade so I did some research and according to the specs, it supposedly shipped with up to an Athlon 4000 64 processor.  Most of what I read referreded to the notebook having a mobile athlon proecssor with a socket 754.  So I ordered a Athlon64 4000+ mobile.  Downloade the service manual, took the machine apart upgraded the ram to 2 gigs while I was at it and realized when I got to the ziff socket that my machine as a Desktop Athlon64 3200+ processor with a socket 939.  So, here is my question: How do I find out what the most powerful processor my board will support is?  Or, does anyone know what the most powerful processor my board will support?  AND if so, will it support a dual core Athlon64 or is that a different architecture motherboard?  Any help appreciated.
Thank You.
Joe

Hi Steve,
Ok, according to the bios, the machine model is actually a ZV6100.  the part number is PN494AV and the Motherboard is: system board ID 3085.  It appears as if theis laptop is using a socket 939 desktop processor.  I've found several posts on the internet showing people successfully upgrading similar compaq and HP laptops but they are older posts and only modest upgrades usually to slower processors than I have in this machine.  Since my knowledge of AMD processors and system boards is zero, part of my fact finding mission is:  Can you stuff the biggest baddest processor that has the same pinout as the ziff socket and have it work similar to Intel systems?  anotherwords, how high can I go?
Thanks,
Joe

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

please let me know the following information:

Model Number:

Serial Number:

The Model, Product and Serial number is located on a white sticker, called the Service Tag, underneath the Notebook.

Have had a good look around and found that the system board you have said is in the laptop should work with the following.

AMD Mobile Athlon 64 4000
P/N 396878-001

AMD Mobile Athlon 64 3800
P/N 396877-001

AMD Mobile Athlon 64 3500
P/N 396876-001

Hope this is of some help to you.
