I currently own a Vostro 460 which came in with a Core i5- 2500 processor and i just wanted to know if the motherboard would support ivy bridge processor i7-3770k. Cos the motherboard has a H67 Chipset and all ivy bridge processors are backward compatible with this particular chipset.
So i just wanted to know if I can go ahead with this upgrade ???

I would recommend you to check with the wired keyboard and check if it is working fine.If the issue is fine with the wired keyboard, would suggest you to update the drivers for the wireless keyboard.
