Can I put a i7-3770 in a motherboard that doesn't support it but has the same socket?

No, chipset won't support it

60 series motherboards

Support ivy bridge with a bios update. Unless this board didn't get a bios update for it 

Either way the performance is not really ground breaking between ivy bridge and Sandy bridge.

Yes and no, if the socket is the same you could inject the cpu microcode into the BIOS and it could work, I do not suggest this though.

Otherwise no, it will not be supported and it won't boot

Since the i7-2600 and 3770 have te same socket I would like to know if I can put it in my PC to further increase the performance.

Here are some info on my mobo : http://www.findlaptopdriver.com/specs-hewlett-packard-1497/

 

pretty sure not but you can check online if a bios update would help.

try looking at youtube vids of people doing it and f you cant find something online then - no, you can't do that
