It depends on what the BIOS of the board supports.
Provide your motherboard manufacturer and model number.
Mijn moeder bord is een Intel Mobile HM57
Mijn type laptop is een HP ProBook 4520s
En mijn fabrikant zoals hierboven te zien HP
You could have a problem.
Here are the processors supported on your laptop:
Look under "product features" here: HP Support document - HP Support Center
Now for the problem. These processors come in two socket versions: either they are soldered to the board, or not.
If they are soldered to the board, you cannot upgrade anything.
If they are not soldered, then it may be possible.
I have chosen the two fastest for comparison. Look under "package specifications" here: Intel® Product Specification Comparison
The BGA socket means the processor is soldered to the board and cannot be changed.
So, you need to determine what socket you have before you can go forward.
Any upgrade processor must be socket, BIOS, and chipset compatible. Only the manufacturer (HP) can tell you what their bios supports.
In my opinion, with a laptop this old, you would do better to replace the laptop with a new or newer model.
kan de Intel Core i5-2450M processor 2.5 Ghz Socket FCBGA1023, PPGA988 er ook in?
de oude i3 die erin zit is niet gesoldeerd
It is highly unlikely that you could use the i5-2450m.
In any case, contact HP to determine what processors their BIOS supports.

Thank you, Al Hill for the information you provided.
Leon., As Al mentioned, the best source for you to get compatibility information is the manufacturer since you have to consider the socket of the mainboard and also the BIOS compatibility.
