No.

 

The Maintenence and service guide for your desktop PC shows that the i3 processor is the top of the line processor option. There are two other processors that are compatible and they are Intel Pentium and Celeron versions.

According to the following manual from the support page for your HP 280 G1 ST, the  Intel Core i3-4170 processor is the only compatible processor. It is the only processor it is sold with. 

 

So the answer is still a no.

 

Upgrading your entry level business PC is not such a viable option. I have not yet found a source where anyone has stated that they have had success upgrading the CPU.

I upgraded to Core i5-4590 and it works well 1 year after the upgrade.

@zecharia

Would you mind showing that with a few images?

 

How about a screenshot with the PC booted into Windows and CPU-z showing the installed CPU?

Is this screen enough for you? This computer was bought in Sweden a year ago and I exchanged the cpu right away since it just had  the slowest one installed. HP Swden said it would be ok, and it is. 16GB DRAM.  Win7 SP1.

How about an image of the system information screen in the BIOS?

 

It is further information for people who have the same system as yours.

 

When you share these things it is sharing it forward with others looking for information. 

 

It takes the risk out of making a processor upgrade that HP's own publication said was not viable.

as you do not trust my sincerity, there is no use in going further.

For me computer is a tool, not an end in itself.

I solve my problems and go on.

I was looking for info if  there is any BIOS update that I have to install

in order to use the i5 to its full potential.

But support was closed and I ended up here.

It would have been nice if you would have posted the other picture of BIOS as it would have helped me out trying to upgrade to a better processor
