Hey, fellow forum users.
I have questions concerning the processor in my HP Pavillion 15 Notebook. Mainly being,
-is it possible that I could upgrade the current dual core i3 I have to an i5 or even i7?
-Is there any other upgrades I can make to beef the notebook up as I mostly use it for gaming and I can hardly get 20 FPS?
-Or do you advise I sell this laptop as I cannot upgrade the motherboard?
I have tried using the already existing support for processor upgrades on the HP support website but it was no help at all and I've had to do a lot of digging to no avail.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, I hope you are able to answer my questions and I'm sorry for my inability as I have very little experience with hardware.
Much thanks, Halogen.

Did you know you also need to upgrade the motherboard ? And this would be a very, very, very expensive upgrade. You can find a list of available boards from page 62 of the first manual of the following link:
