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.
