The list of supported processors for your PC can be found at the link below.

Then click on the motherboard specs link.

 

This discussion indicates that the Ryzen 7 2700X has no chance of working since its TDP far exceeds those of the supported processors.

What about the ryzen 5 3600?

I concur with this person's reply...I highly doubt it will work because HP most likely has not released a BIOS update that adds support for any other processor beyond the Ryzen 7 2700 (which is a W11-supported processor).

I suggest that you forget about installing anything better than the AMD Ryzen7-2700.

 

Unfortunately, HP does not have any release notes for any of the BIOS updates for your PC's motherboard., so we can't even tell you that it might be worth a try.
