CPU upgrades usually aren't very cost effective. With an OEM computer even determining what CPUs are compatible can be difficult. In a laptop CPUs are often not user replaceable.

As your system specs are very vague only general information can be provided.

I would increase RAM to 3 GB.

BTW you should be able to find details about your present processor via Control Panel > System and Maintenance > System (or Computer > System properties).

Does your computer do all you need it to as it is?
Maybe more ram and a ssd would help
