    Upgrading Celeron B840 to i5-3320M boot failure

    noob99

      I want to upgrade my HP 2560P which has a Celeron B840 processor to an i5-3320M.

       

      Problem is when I installed the processor the laptop tries to boot, but immediately shuts down. A few seconds later it tries to boot again, automatically, but fails again.

       

      The BIOS is updated to the most recent version, F62. According to the specs they have the same socket, so I was not expecting a problem.

       

      Question is if I overlooked something? They are incompatible? Or the processor is broken? (I bought it second-hand)
