I have a Pavilion dv7-7150er notebook, product B3Q50EA.
According to CPU-Z, it is currently installed Intel Core i3 2370M.
MB determined like HP 181D, southbridge HM77.
I'm having difficulty determining which CPUs are compatible with my laptop.
I found a manual (Document Part Number: 671384-001). Next some hard to me:
I found information that a 2-core CPU can only be changed to a 2-core one, is this true?
I also saw that it is desirable for the CPU to have the same TDP, but it seems like someone here wrote that this is not necessary?
If i look at the manual sheet and the correspondence between the number of cores and TDP, the best I can put is this - Intel Core i5-3320M. Is this true?
If i look at the list of processors for the Socket rPGA988B- can find a Core i7-3540M, it also has 2 cores and 35W TDP, can he suit me?
Thank you! Have a nice day everyone!

You should be able to install any Intel 35W processor listed in chapter 3 of your notebook's service manual.
Looks like this one would be the best you can do...
Intel Core i7-3612QM 2.10-GHz processor (6.0-MB L3 cache, 35 W)
If you look at chapter 3, the only difference in the motherboards (other than the graphics) are those that support 45W processors and those that support 35W processors.
