Welcome to HP support community.


I'm afraid HP neither recommends nor supports changing the processor of your device as it may render the device unstable due to incompatibility among other components of your device.

You may want to check the HP service and maintenance guide for details on the parts tested for your device if you wish to proceed anyway, however, you may have to do the same at your own discretion.

I hope that helps.

To thank me for my efforts to help you, please mark my post as an accepted solution so that it benefits several others.
