Can I upgrade the processor on my HP Touchsmart 610-1280qd?

HP Touchsmart 610-1280qd
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello - 

I have a question regarding CPU. My HP All-in-one, HP Touchsmart 610-1280qd came with Inter Pentium I7 -2600 CPU @3.40 GHz, and 8 GB RAM Memory.

It has become slow.

I am thinking to make some upgrades to an SSD, increase RAM, but I have a question regarding the CPU. Can I upgrade to another generation I7 CPU? How can I find out if my PC is compatible with newer generation CPUs?

You can't upgrade on the same motherboard to a different generation processor.

 

The socket that is onboard is the determining factor for the installed processor. To change to a different generation processor, the motherboard would have to have a socket compatible with a newer generation processor.

 

You can upgrade memory to a maximum of 16 GB

 

You can replace the legacy hard disk with a 2.5" NGFF SATA3 SSD.
