Good afternoon ! help! After installing Windows 10, the laptop started to get very hot even when watching a video. I want to replace the processor, but I don’t know which one can be installed. Judging by the Intel manuals on my motherboard, I can bridge such an I7-2670qm and i7-3612qm. But earlier I ran into a Bios lock and I know that if it is not registered in bios then it will not start. I appeal to you as developers. Which processor can I put in place of my i5-2410M.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Most cpu's are soldered on the motherboard and cannot be replaced. Even if you could, the price for laptop cpu's are very high.
The problem you are facing now is proberbly not a cpu issue. It could be fan related (not spinning or lot of dust in the cooling system?) or you can replace the old cooling paste between the cpu and cooling system so the heat can bether be transported.

Every year I change the thermal grease and clean it from dust. It helps a little for about 4 months then the same thing. Moreover, thermal grease (when replacing) is not solid, but more viscous like clay. I found an article that described the process of replacing I5-2430 (35W) with i7-2760 (45W), they write that there were no problems with cooling. That is, the I7-2760 uses a less resource to perform the same tasks.

Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.
The supported processors are listed in chapter 1.
According to the manual, no quad core processors are supported, but the i7-2620 is.
If you found an article where someone upgraded the processor to a quad core in a HP g6-11xx model, then that is good news.
But officially, it is not supported by HP.
