I bought an i5 compatible CPU for my touchsmart 520. I cannot figure out how to upgrade the BIOS to accept it. I did put windows 10 on it which works great. It has a PEGATRON 2AC3 motherboard. HP upgrade tool wont recognize the OS (because I wasn't supposed to upgrade to WIN10 ???????) Any help appreciated so I can get this CPU in. I know the CPU is compatible (sandy bridge 65w LGA-1155) Thanks
I must let you know that HP does not recommend upgrades or hardware changes as the device is equipped with parts that perform at its optimal performance by design, that said, the upgradeable parts listed by HP articles are purely for your ease, as the decision to upgrade will be at your own discretion.
