external processor

I have a HP pavilion laptop with AMD turion processor. I was wondering if there was any possible way to hook a second processor up to the machine.

    the mother board either has the sockets to run dual CPU's or it doesn't.

    Laptops especially do not have expansion abilities.

    If it is running slow, look at a memory upgrade, and scan for malware/viruses.

    While anything is possible you have to remember that you are running a battery powered device so you should be looking at using as little of the battery as possible.

    If all you want to do is to improve the performance you should be able to replace the CPU with something faster and add more RAM.
