Ready for the last upgrade

HP Pavillon 23-q102nl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, my first post here.

 

I own an HP Pavillon 23-q102nl to which in recent days I replaced the hard disk with a Samsung 860 Evo SSD and added 2 new Crucial 2 x 8 GB memory banks (it was equipped with 4GB only!!). Needless to say, the PC has come back to life as never before. Now according to the technical specifications

I'm ready to upgrade the CPU ( Intel Core i3-4170T) to an Intel Core i7-4785T (Haswell) 2.2 GHz Quad Core. Before doing so I successfully updated the BIOS (mobo Crusher-U) to the latest available version: A0.13 Rev.A

What I want to know before proceeding is if I need to update something else before installing the new CPU. Also if the CPU is not recognized can I re-install the old one?

 

Thanks for your reply!

Hi:

 

You should not have to do anything but install the processor.

 

If in the unlikely event the  i7-4785T doesn't work, you can reinstall the original processor and the PC should work.
