Windows 7: Motherboard compatible with CPU. Upgrade.

Motherboard compatible with CPU. Upgrade.

I want to upgrade my CPU. It is currently an AMD Athlon Neo Processor MV-40. It is only 1.6 Ghz. My laptop is an HP Pavilion dv2 Entertainment PC. My motherboard specs are below.

Model: Flextronics 3055
FSB: AMD Hammer, 200 Mhz

The question I have is: What other CPUs are compatible with my motherboard.

I have already tried to look up my motherboard via Flextronics website, but it does not seem to be listed there. Thank you all in advance for any help.

Probably because it is an OEM board made by them for that (and maybe more) particular notebook. They wouldn't provide any support for it even if you did find it on their site as that would all fall on the notebook manufacturer.

As far as upgrading the CPU, unless it is supported in the bios the best you can do is the Turion Neo x2 listed here,

AMD Processors for Notebooks: AMD Turion

other than that, nothing. Even if it is supported (and that is entirely up to HP), ther eis the small matter of finding one.

Thanks for the prompt reply. I e-mailed hp support asking what CPUs my bios would accept and am waiting on a response. Also, have you any idea where I could purchase a Turion Neo x2. I looked through all the sites (e.g. amazon, newegg, best buy, etc) provided by the link with no results.

Short of ebay or a laptop specific shop/site, no as things like that very rarely make it out into retail and only come in the laptop.
