Looking to upgrade Processor

Last response: in Motherboards

I have a Hp Pavilion G7-2244NR Laptop computer with 8GB Ram Installed, it has a Intel HM76 Express Chipset that is suppose to support both 2nd and 3rd Gen Intel Processors. It currently has a Intel 3rd Gen i5-3210M running right now. I want to upgrade this processor to a faster Intel i7. I have contacted Hp support but they just give me the run around telling me I can't do any thing even though I know I can. So someone please shoot me in the right direction and help me find the fastest Processor that will work in my computer.

You can't do anything without losing your warranty. Plus, some laptops have their BIOS locked, making it unable for another CPU beside the default one to run on it.
