So will the hp notebook support athlon fx-55?
I think you mean the FX-55, released in Oct.04, or FX-57, which will be released later this month. Both of these will work on any S939 mobo, provided (1) the notebook is able to supply sufficient power and voltage, and (2) the notebook is able to provide enough cooling.
For (1), it's probably possible to play around with the BIOS settings and do a couple of simple mods to make it work.
For (2), highly doubtful, unless you have some kind of external cooling.
