It is a laptop, which means unless you are extremely lucky, there is not even a replacement motherboard that can go in to that form factor which supports the "new generation" processor. So in short, you need a new laptop.

You can only upgrade your laptop to a Sandy Bridge processor (2nd gen).
These are the CPUs that you can upgrade to:



So the I7 2820QM is the best you can upgrade to.
Here's your laptop manual: HP EliteBook 8640p
On page 91 you'll find the list in my image.

Newer generation processors won't work on that motherboard either because of the BIOS version (3rd Gen Ivy Bridge) or because of the different CPU socket (4th Gen and newer).
