Hi Sholling,

 

Welcome to the HP Community, I hope you enjoy your experience! To help you get the most out of the HP Forums I would like to direct your attention to the HP Forums Guide First Time Here? Learn How to Post and More.

 

I see that you have a question about upgrading your processor. On page 89 and 90 of the Maintenance and Service Guide you will find a list of compatible processors. The Intel i7-3820qm is not on the list but there are several processors on the list. You will also find instructions on replacing the processor.

 

Thank you,
