Well, if this is a laptop, then there is nothing you can do as the processor is soldered to the motherboard.

If you are a desktop, then you might be able to add a graphics card.

However, the best solution is to plan for an upgrade to something with an 8th gen processor or later.

As I said, the processor is soldered to the motherboard.  Contact the manufacturer of your device to determine if they offer some option for replacement.  It is not likely, but is worth a try.

"can i change motherboard"

 

That is the part where I said contact the device manufacturer.  Only they can tell you.
