Windows 7: Upgrading processor from intel pentium dual core t2310 1.46 GHz...

Upgrading processor from intel pentium dual core t2310 1.46 GHz...

I am trying to figure out what processor is compatible with my motherboard in my HP Pavilion dv6628us notebook. I've read the manual and looked on HP's PartSurfer. PartSurfer listed a number of them from 1.46 GHz to 2.4 GHz. I purchased an intel duo processor 2.4GHz that did not work. Now I'm trying to figure out if that processor wasn't compatible or if it is just faulty. If it is not faulty or compatible, I need to know what is compatiable so I can purchase it tonight and have it shipped by Wednesday because I am going through serious withdrawals without my computer. Help me please.

I updated my computer from vista to windows 7. Hp didn't have updates available for Windows 7 on the support page for my laptop so I had to install the one they had for Vista. Should I have updated my BIOS from a laptop's support page that had an update for Windows 7 such as this one below:

24/7 Online support for HP's Home and Home Office Products | HP® Support [...] 8&sw_lang=

here is mine:
24/7 Online support for HP's Home and Home Office Products | HP® Support [...] ct=3552674

I have a questions. Do all the specs have to match on the processor? For example, will I have to buy a processor that only supports 1mb (L2) if that's what the processor's cache is? I know you're able to go above the bus speed. If so, this could be resolved right now. Ha ha.

I did call them direct, but HP will not help you without being under warranty. That is one of the reasons I will never buy an HP anything again. Thanks for replying.

Wow, they won`t help you to get a new cpu, that`s insane. Did you tell them you wanted to buy a new cpu, did you talk to sales ? I would have demanded a manager.

It very well may have to be the same fsb. Yours is 533 MHz, correct ?

The cpu you bought is an 800 MHz, correct ?

You might find something for it on Ebay.

Oh, I did! I told them I wanted to speak to Hewlett. LOL Of course they told me that he wasn't in. Then the guy asked if I wanted to speak to his supervision, but the supervision wouldn't speak to me because I wasn't under warranty. They claim they cannot help you with a processor upgrade because it didn't come with the computer. They don't want to help you much at all if you aren't under warranty. The guy wouldn't even direct me to a self-help page.

Intel Pentium Dual-Core processor T2370 - 1.73GHz (Merom, 533MHz front side


You would have to get this 1, the last one on that list. Not much of a gain, but a little.

Yes, that is the bus speed. I've been looking on Ebay. That's where I bought the first cpu. I thought it had something to do with the L2 and not the MHz.

Man, I think you are in for some hurt doing what you want to do--although surely someone can do it. Whether you can get to the level of performance you want, though, is a different issue. I don't want to downplay the expenditure of $ above and beyond what the upgrade you want to do would cost, but there are some good performing laptops, with modern features and compatibilities, out there at reasonable prices. Maybe you could even find one running Windows 7, not Win8.
