Hello,

 

 

I pulled up your Maintence and Service guide and it does have i5 processors in the list

 

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02666747.pdf

 

 

FYI: This isn't an easy process if your not used to pulling apart notebooks. If you decide to do this take your time and make sure you don't bend any cables.

 

Also this isn't covered by your HP warranty so if you have some still left it will be voided so go at your own risk.

 

 

Good luck!

Hi,

 

Thank you for your answer.

 

I am having broken hp Probook 4530s (Product No: QG688PA#UUF)

it was fallen down from stairs and physically damage. but its processor (Core i5) is in fine condition.

 

Can I upgrade my DV7 with this processor?

 

I found out it is very hard to find the specifications of both laptops on hp site.

Would you happen to know the specific i5 processor it might be?

 

 

If the processor has been removed from the Probook it should have part information written on it.

Hi,

 

I am sorry but there is no hp part number written on it, but I found out it has this number on it, SR04W.

 

when I search, it says it is Intel Core i5 2430M processor.

 

here is the comparision with my existing processor.

Can you check and let me know whether I can upgrade my system with this processor ?

Hey wickum,

 

From looking at your manual looks like you can't upgrade to the Intel Core i5 2430M processor.

 

The only one you can from the link you post on here is the Intel Dual Core i3-380m 

 

So again unfortunately you cannot upgrade to the Intel Core i5 2430M processor.
