Can I use my old hard drive on same model with faster processor?

I have an HP 4540s that has a broken charging port. I am thinking of replacing the computer with a used computer of the same model, however, my computer has an i3 processor and the other one has an i5 processor - but it is the same model. Will my hard drive work in the computer with the i5 or would it need to be wiped and reinstall the system? It is Windows 7. Thank you.
