Upgrade CPU/fresh Win7 install w/o disc

  1. I have an older Dell Latitude laptop in which I would like to upgrade the processor.
    I purchased the machine as a refurbished model. It has Win7 installed, The typical office programs 2007.

    I writing to ask if there is a way to upgrade the CPU without having to disturb the overall OS configuration? If not can someone either give me direction as to how one goes about doing this (w/o WIN7 disc) or a link to where I could get direction as to how to reinstall after the upgrade.
    Thank you.

    You should not be required to do a re-activation of Windows after upgrading just the CPU as far as I know
