Can I upgrade the Intel Core i-7 3520M processor in my HP Elitebook 2570p ?

HP Elitebook 2570p w/ Core i-7
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Can I upgrade the Intel Core i-7 3520M processor in my HP Elitebook 2570p ?

 

It is a dual core processor and I would love a bit more power.

 

It has 8GB of ram which I am doubling but would like to go as far as possible. 

 

I have two of these and I like them but am wanting to do some more challenging processing.

 

Ideas, suggestions?

 

Thanks in advance,

MikellB

@MikellB

 

What is its BIOS version ? From the following manual i7-3520M is the top of the line

You need newer BIOS (if available) to support newer processors. The lastest BIOS for Windows 7 is F.65 Rev.A.

Thanks Bahlein,

 

Sorry I just saw your reply. 

Currently I have upgraded to BIOS V. 7.3 and with 16GB of RAM the processing power and response is much better.

 

I still wonder whether a processor upgrade is possible. I see that a couple of people have done it but it appears they have taken extreme measures.

 

Thanks again for your earlier reply.
