Hey, I had that same issue with the exact same specs and stuff you have to update the BIOS. Click on or copy and paste the link that leads to the download page.http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00007682&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=92873 - Scroll down until you see a link that says Drivers and Downloads. Follow the instructions and download the file. Run the setup and install on a formatted floppy disk. (it has to be formatted as a MS-DOS startup disk). After that put it in and the setup should start automatically when you start the computer. Just install it and follow instructions and it should fix your problem.

Hello,
I've located this description when installing the pentium 4 processor on Windows XP. If you have not performed these steps this may be the cause of what you are experiencing. To save you time I've pasted the section below--> Operating System Support
Nearly all modern operating systems designed for the Intel Architecture have support for the Pentium 4 processor, although some may require specific versions or processor support files. Many Microsoft operating systems like Windows* 98 SE, Windows NT* 4 with Service Pack 5, Windows* 2000, Windows* ME, and Windows* XP support the Pentium 4 processor. Linux* distributions based on the Linux* 2.4 core support the processor. Also, many other vendors have support for the Pentium 4 Processor in their operating systems. System integrators should verify that the operating system they have selected supports the Pentium 4 processor.

Note: Windows XP or certain versions of Linux are required for Hyper-Threading Technology2 support for the Pentium 4 processor. For additional information on integrating systems based on the Pentium 4 processor supporting Hyper-Threading Technology, refer to the Integration Overview for Systems Based on the Intel Pentium 4 Processor Supporting Hyper-Threading Technology.

All operating systems that support the SSE instructions that were first introduced with the Intel® Pentium III processor will also support the SSE2 instructions introduced with the Pentium 4 processor. To experience the power of the SSE2 instructions, it is critical that system integrators install drivers and software that have been optimized for the Pentium 4 processor's SSE2 instructions. For example, for maximum system performance, system integrators using Microsoft operating systems that support DirectX* should load DirectX 8 (or higher).

Software Optimization
With specific drivers that use the SSE2 instructions, graphics accelerators, audio hardware and software, and other system resources can experience substantial performance gain. It is critical that systems also use APIs that use SSE2 instructions to achieve maximum performance. Two examples are Microsoft's DirectX 8 (or higher) and Open GL 1.2 (or higher). Most major graphics accelerator vendors have optimized drivers that use the SSE2 instructions. Graphics card vendors typically highlight support changes with new driver releases. Download and install the latest drivers (dated later than October 2000) from the vendor's Web site. Also, verify that the driver version contains optimization for the Pentium 4 processor.

Many applications also use the SSE2 instructions to experience the breakthrough performance of the Pentium 4 processor. System integrators should contact software vendors to verify support and determine version information.

System performance is greatly affected by proper operating system and driver installation processes. For example, it is important to install the latest Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility immediately after installing most Microsoft operating systems to ensure proper drivers for the chipset are installed prior to installation of other drivers. System integrators should confirm boxed Intel Pentium 4 processor-based systems are optimally configured and integrated.

Conclusion
Boxed Intel Pentium 4 processor-based systems require proper integration. System integrators that follow the guidelines in this document will experience higher customer satisfaction by providing higher quality systems. 


Please let me know if you have success with this.
Thank You, Raph30

Hello, I would like to overclock my AMD mt30 CPU 1600Mhz25wattTDP 64clockspeed/power ratio to that of a SempronML37 2000Mhz35WattTDP and 57.1 clock speed/power ratio? Do I just change the voltages in...


Due to the way you stated the above John, you seem like a guy that will understand the following;

Yeah know funny thing about overclocking;

1) You may have a good Processor that came off the assembly line that day, or it may be one that just squeezed past Quality Control. Push it too much, and it will fry. Trying to make it hit 2.0GHz all day long, every day, may just push it over the limit. Sure you may have read about, or even heard of someone who did it. How long? How long did the processor last at this overclocked rate?

2) AMD's run H-O-T. Not a good idea to push a Processor with overclocking (Which makes it run MUCH hotter) in a cramped laptop environment, with a low cooling capacity anyway.

3) Ram Memory typically operates at half of the FSB Frequency Rate ('Speed'), that the Processor does. (Front Side Bus)

To overclock you can;
A) Change the Voltage
B) Change the FSB frequency rate ('speed')
C) Change the Multiplier

If you change the Front Side Bus frequency rate too far, the ram memory will not work anymore.
Won't match.

AMD Turion 64 MT-30,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Turion_microprocessors#.22Lancaster.22_.2890_nm.29

The Sempron you name is a Turion also.
Turion ML-37,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Turion_microprocessors#.22Lancaster.22_.2890_nm.29

4) You have to have a BIOS Setup Utility that will allow you to change CPU parameters.

See this article?

http://www.ehow.com/how_7335931_overclock-turion-64-compaq-nx6125.html

No mention that overclocking a Processor shortens it's 'Life Span'
No mention that if overclocked too far the Ram Memory may not work.

No mention that an AMD processor runs HOT, and if you overclock you'd better have a lot more than the factory cooling. Plus not a good thing for a laptop anyway because of a laptop's poor cooling design. (Cramped small space, small fan, inadequate cooling thermal module)

No mention that the BIOS Setup Utility in your laptop may not have a CPU Soft option, or options inside that allow you to change the Processor's parameters.

No mention that you should go slow. Change parameters in one SMALL increment, wait 24 hours, and check the system. Looks okay? Change parameters another small increment. Check during a 24 hour period. Keep going until the computer starts messing up, then go BACK to the last parameter that checked out okay

Have I dissuaded you yet?
No?
Just don't want to see someone fry their Processor, or computer.

Okay.

The Turion MT-30 has a clock multiplier of 8 times. (8x)
The Turion ML-37 has a clock multiplier of 10x.

The Turion MT-30 uses 1.35 Volts (DC)
The Turion ML-37 uses 1.35 Volts (DC)

The Turion MT-30's Front Side Bus frequency rate is 800MegaHertz
The Turion ML-37's FSB 'speed' is 800MHz.

What options in your BIOS Setup do you have for changing CPU (Processor) parameters?
State back in a Comment. (Believe top right of your page)

No options?
Then try CrystalCPUID, or ClockGen,

if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall both the sound drivers and the sound card make sure you have both of these devices backed up to a disc before uninstalling
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver to do this
right click to install driver also
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
also
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar
if his does not fix the problem

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable)

hope this helps

Reviving the cpu


The boards I have seen were overclocked by changing the CPU speeds or the voltages going to the CPU. Change the setting back. When you get into the BIOS setup screen(A lot of them you get into by pressing the delete key when starting up) look for the "Default settings" After clicking on them,save the settings. Thsi wil bring you back to the  Safest board setting according to the board maker.

UpGrade


you could only upgrade the processor and RAM in this condition i.e.

you can only change your an upgraded p-III processor like 1.0 GHz, 1.1 GHz or 1.3GHz and
upgrade the RAM by changing to 256 in each slot.

that is all what u can do with ur pc

CPU Upgrade


You pulled the processor out of your laptop ... that was a brave move ... generally laptop boards are fully integrated so there is very few options on changing the processor ... also because of the extreme heating conditions the heat sink bonding is very critical ... make sure you replace this properly or you will have overheating issues in the future ...
