Techguru2009: When you upgrade your motherboard, basically you have a new computer. You need to know how your hard/cd drives are connected. Either IDE or SATA. IDE is legacy hardware 80 pin and SATA is the new Thing small connecter. Next is your RAM. There is Dimm, DDR1, DDR2. Find out what your old system was using, or just buy new memory cards, DDR2 is not that expensive. Ask for the manual first read and check what is required, take a list of what your old computer has. I can also help you install everything via chat.

Can I upgrade the motherboard on a hp pavilion a1010n ?


You CAN upgrade the motherboard in any PC, with a few things to consider. As mentioned above, by Techguru2009, be sure that the connections from the board to the peripherals are the same. Also, HP motherboards are 'tattooed', meaning that a new motherboard will not work with the HP OEM version of Windows that sits on your hard drive. You would have to purchase and install a new copy and/or license key.

Can I upgrade a HP Pavilion a620n processor?


1) You need to know what processor socket is on the motherboard.
2) You need to know what the Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, is.
3) There may be a BIOS upgrade needed, in order to support the processor upgrade.

OR, alternatively there may be a CPU (Processor) Support list.
Let's go to HP Support, and find out,

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/support-drivers.html

Left-click on the purple middle 'box', with Product Support and Troubleshooting in it.
In the box that is under the heading - Enter a product name/number, left-click in the box.

Type Pavilion a620n. (Pavilion is an HP line. HP Support doesn't need HP put in the box)
Now go to the right of the box, and left-click on Search.
Give it a second, and the main support page will come up, for the Pavilion a620n Desktop PC.

Left-click on Product Information. Left-click on Product specifications in blue.
In the list left-click on -
Motherboard Specifications - A7V8X-LA (Kelut)

If you scroll down there is an illustration, and photo of the Pavilion a620n's motherboard.
Note in the Illustration that the processor socket is a Socket 462.
Also is known as Socket A,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_A

The Socket A, or also known as Socket 462, is for AMD processors - Only.
Scrolling back up the page we see what CPU's (Processors), are supported.

Look to the right of the heading - CPU
Look at what maximum approved processors, are supported, under the heading - Maximum approved processors:

The maximum, or best, CPU your motherboard will support, is an AMD Athlon XP 3200+.
The one model that is based on the Barton Core, and has a Front Side Bus of 400MegaHertz. (FSB = 400MHz)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Athlon_XP_microprocessors#Athlon_XP_.22Barton.22_.28Model_10.2C_130_nm.29

Look down on the left side until you arrive at - Athlon XP 3200+,
and go across to the Part Number - AXDA3200DKV4E

This is the best Athlon XP 3200+
Why?

You'll notice that the frequency rate ('Speed'), is higher for the Part Number AXDA3200DKV4D model.
2333MegaHertz.
(Can also be stated as 2.3GigaHertz. It is rounded off. 2.3GHz)

However look at the Front Side Bus 'speed'. (Frequency Rate)
It's 333MHz for the AXDA3200KV4D.

Although the frequency rate for the KV4E is lower, the FSB is higher.
400MHz.

Think of the Front Side Bus (FSB) as being an 'Information Highway'.
It transfers information from the Processor (CPU), to the Northbridge chip. (And vice-versa)

The faster a frequency rate the FSB can operate at, means the more information it will be able to transfer back, and forth.

Crude example a 4 lane highway to a 2 lane highway. Which will transfer traffic back, and forth at a larger rate?

The increase in FSB frequency rate, from 333MHz to 400MHz,
makes a BIG difference.

Increase in the Processor's frequency rate of 133MHz, (2200MHz to 2333MHz), means Nada.
Not enough to write home to Mom about.

Now,............finding one of these babies on the market.


[ Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

Motherboard Chipset = Northbridge chip, and Southbridge chip

(For the technology used for your motherboard. Does not apply to motherboards that support Intel Core i3, i5, i7, and i9 processors)

{The Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip, are so aptly named because of their locations, on the motherboard.
Computer case open, your motherboard can be looked at as, a map on a wall.

North to the top, South to the bottom. Front and back, no east/west.
The Northbridge chip sits under the processor. (That is, to the South)
The Southbridge chip is usually located towards the bottom of the motherboard, or to the South }

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of the computer.
The Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

{Note*
Integrated Graphics, and a graphics card inserted into a PCI slot, (Or connected to a PCI bus), is Not High-speed graphics.
AGP technology, and the PCI-Express (X16) technology, is }
(PCI-Express x16 for graphics card, not PCI-Express x1)

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.

1) Anything connected to the PCI bus, (As a graphics card in a white PCI slot, for one example),

2) Integrated Graphics. (Integrated graphics is also known as OnBoard graphics. ON the motherBOARD. The GPU is soldered to the motherboard)

3) The IDE (PATA) bus, SATA bus, USB bus, Ethernet, and Audio. (Sound)

Depends on the socket type.. Socket 423 and 478 do not support core duo or quad core processor types. However, if you have LGA 775 (aka socket T) your motherboard will support the following:
Intel Pentium 4 (2.60 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Pentium Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)

Would like to replace motherboard on old HP Pavilion 7940 but have no idea what boards will work. This is just for fun would be great if could be an upgrade. Don't want to spend fortune.


the motherboard is the heart or core of the computer. if you change it you will be forced to change it fot the same model (no upgadre exist, well a new computer will be a upgrade).

so if yoy take of the moder board you will be left with the other componenst like; the dvd reader, ram memory, procesor, modem, cables, and whatever you computer had.

so even if yoy manage to get an android motherboard (is a moderboard that is made to put diferent brand of components in it) and put the components that were left of the pavilion, you will get the same performance as your old pavilion.

if you whant to increase the performance of that hp pavillion 7940. look for upgrades for the moder board of that computer. like a better memory module. or a better video card for better graphics. i dont think that the processor can be changed in some models they are fixed to the moder board or the mother board will not support any other kind of processor.

Upgrade graphics processor hp pavilion zv5034us


Honestly speaking, I recommend you to go for a New Notebook rather than changing the Motherboard since it is not possible to purchase another Motherboard for this Notebook with a better graphic card.

The actul Motherboard of your Notebook will cost you pretty more and I personally recommend you to go for a New Notebook with which you can get latest Graphic Card and hardware components.

You can find the list of parts available for this Notebook from HP Part Store from the link below :

http://h20141.www2.hp.com/hpparts/Search_Results.asp?mscssid=EJVUXR20AGCT8PMRJKPJXR6FSGX6C2W2

However, if you donot have any issues with the Notebook currently, go ahead working with it.

Hope this helps...
