Upgrade cpu on pavilion 6630

Im trying to upgrade my daughters hp. i put in more ram, changed cpu to 750mhz from a spare compaq presario, since they're both the 370. i also changed the fan & heatsink unit that was with the presario.

i have power, i hear & feal the fan running but i have no video nor lights on the tower signifying the cpu is processing.

with original cpu, i see light on tower & hear it procesing but i still have no video. seems like two different problems.

Just because the 750mhz cpu is socket 370 that doesnt mean it'll work...the 750 mhzcpu is probably a FCPGA 1.75 volt w/ 100mhz fsb and the original cpu is of the PPGA package, 66mhz fsb, 2volts, etc. i think itll only work with pc100 but im not sure...as for the video i have no clue...

I am suggesting you the solution keeping in mind that there is no display is on the monitor.
The max ram that HP Pavilion 6630 PC Desktop can support is 256 mb pc 100 or pc 133mhz.
check if you have installed that amount of ram, if thats correct then check if any continues beep sound is coming out of CPU.

if there is beep try to change the ram slot.the more possibilty i either the new ram is faulty or incompatibel.

try to install the old ram see if it works. if still no display.


install old cpu and heat sink.see what happen ..

then let me know the result.

bye & take care..

    I have one of these and it supports 384MB as I have it congfigured. I looked at HP for a manual bit I keepgettong a page called computergripes. I don't need that page as I have enough gripes aboput HP's PC support. But this box will do more than 256 MB.

    It's really a nice little box that I've kept because it is perfect for my use of Open Office, Scribus, etc. Small, quiet, reliable and, since I replaced the Windoze with Linux, actually fairly fast for anyone but a gamer.

What processor and where can I get one?


This 'notebook' was shipped with an AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-58 CPU, See http://www.cpu-world.com/cgi-bin/IdentifyPart.pl There are three variants. This CPU is "probably upgradeable" according to the FAQ in the pages linked to from my ref.
The HP webpage for this model is Compaq Presario V6642EM Notebook PC Product Information and the specifications (linked to from that page) are here Compaq Presario V6642EM Media Center Notebook PC Product Specifications
The maintenance & service Guide might tell you which, if any, other CPUs can be fitted.
HP say follow the following steps to determine which CPUs are available for your PC HP and Compaq Desktop PCs Upgrading or Replacing the Processor but I don't hold out much hope as to determining the m/b type.
Incidendentally this model can accept up yo 2 x 1GB RAM

Upgrade HP Compaq Presario F750US - CPU, GPU & RAM


You'll spend more money trying to upgrade this laptop then it would cost to just buy a better used one on eBay. Probably even spend more that it would cost to buy a new low end computer. Save yourself the headaches and time and buy a NEW laptop.

I have a compaq presario cq60-215dx notebook pc, was wondering how do i go about upgrading the RAM?


I have checked the Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX Specification It Originally has 2GB Memory and supports upto 4GB RAM max. If you intend to upgrade the RAM, you can buy additional RAM and put them in you system. Here is the HP Guide to Replace RAM and How to Upgrade RAM Guide
Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX has two RAM slots for DDR-2 (533 or 667) Memory Modules. First you have to check that the RAM slot is available for additional RAM. I believe that it has two modules of 1GB each in both slots. So, you have to get two modules of RAM 2GB each to upgrade to 4GB (or one 2GB RAM module to upgrade to 3GB). Hence, it is recommended that you get 2GB replacement module for each 1GB module you have on you system from local laptop repair/ service center, which would be cost effective as existing 1GB RAM Modules would be useless for you upon upgrade.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!
