Upgrading processor

HP Recommended
Envy 360 Convertible
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My HP Envy has 1.8 Hz processor and I need faster processing speeds. Can I install/upgrade a new processor in my machine?

Hi:

 

The processor your notebook has is an integral part of the motherboard.

 

The only way to upgrade the processor would be to replace the motherboard with one listed in chapter 3 of your notebook's service manual that may come with a better processor.

 

It would probably cost as much or more as buying a new notebook with a better processor already included.

@CharlesMarie 

 

What is your HP Envy x360 machine ? Normally NO, CPU is one part of System board, you have to change the whole board (if available).

 

Regards.

It's a convertible 2-in-1. Sounds like for the money of replacing a motherboard, I will be looking at a replacement.

 

Thanks for responding!

You're very welcome.

 

Make sure you buy a notebook that has everything you are looking for.

 

No matter what company makes them, the processors and graphics on consumer class notebooks made in the last 5 - 6 years or so, cannot be upgraded.
