You can only install one of the processors listed in chapter 1 of your notebook's service manual.
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
If you click on the compatible processors supported by the chipset, you will see the ones listed in the HP service manual.
