No, your AMD mobile processor is soldered to your motherboard as per CPU World: http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Bulldozer/AMD-A9-Series%20for%20Notebooks%20A9-9420.html 

It will cost you more then the laptop is worth to take it to a computer shop to have the processor upgraded even if the computer shop has the special equipment to do so.

No, that processor uses BGA which means it's soldered to the motherboard. The only way to upgrade would be to buy a new laptop, which is not a bad idea considering the power of even mid-range laptops now thanks to AMD.
