Hi:

 

You can only install one of the processors listed in chapter 1 of your notebook's service manual.

 

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03345657

 

No 45W processors are supported.

 

Here is a comparison chart of your current processor and the best one you can install...the i7-3612QM:

You're very welcome.

 

You can install any of the i5's listed in chapter 1.

 

All of the processors listed in chapter 1 of the service manual are 35W.

 

I was just giving you the best one you can install.

 

I personally think it is a waste of time upgrading processors unless you go for the best one you can.

 

You are better off investing your money in a solid state drive and maxing out the memory.

That would be correct but your board has the Panther Point chipset and they hobbled it by installing a sandy bridge processor.

 

See chapter 1 of the manual for the chipset specs...

 

Chipset Intel HM76 Express Chipset

 

https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/64345/mobile-intel-hm76-express-chipset.html

 

If you click on the compatible processors supported by the chipset, you will see the ones listed in the HP service manual.
