Question about Compaq Presario 2200 (292600-004) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Upgrade cpu I have a compaq presario 2254. It works fine. It has a AMD k6 266mhz cpu. I have purchased an AMD k6 300mhz cpu that I'd like to use instead. Before I change the chip, will I have to change any jumpers? There are four that I can see on the motherboard, but are not labeled. Will I have to change a setting in the BIOS? Thanks

    I have no instructions for the motherboard or the computer itself. There is a jumper jp1 near the cpu that has pins 1-2 closed 3-4 open and 5-6 closed. Since it is near the cpu I thought that maybe it was a clock speed. I have also read about multipliers in the bios, is this a setting that may have to be cahnged?

    There is a coin type battery. I'll have to attempt this later and will let you know the results, thanks.

    no sir. normally there is no such necessary that you should cahnge any jumper settings.

    but if at all the instructions of mother board mention you to change jumper setting for that particular processor you will have to do it..

    but you can place it with out fear.

    if the system dosent boot up you will have to go back to your mother board settings.

    til then there no such necessary to do it.

    no no no..

    dont touch it gods sake...


    are you able to see any BATTERY in mother board??

    it will be a flat battery similar in shape of watch batteries.

    now you will have to remove that battery. it will be held in by jusy small clip.

    remove that battery.

    now leave it for two min exactly. now again put in the battery inside that slot.

    this is the process to reset the bios.

    so now after resetting the bios you can place your new processor.

    after going into the system bios sucessfully you will have to set the current date manualy by going into date settings.

    this is the procedure.

    good luck sir.

What processor and where can I get one?

This 'notebook' was shipped with an AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-58 CPU, See 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.

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 sr1230nx,it has the amd athlon XP pcu which I think is a socket 462. anyways Im trying to install an AutoCad program,but it says I need a CPU that is SSE2 compliant. is there...

Access and search for "Everest Home" software.

Download and install this _free_ software.

When you run it, click the 'CPU' tab, and you'll get a full list of what "extensions", such as SSE or SSE2, that are supported by your CPU.

Browse the AMD web-site ( ) to look for an Athlon-series CPU that _does_ have the SSE2 extensions. Buy that CPU, and install it into your computer.

    Will a AMD Athlon 64 processor work in a Compaq Presario SR1050NX Desktop? My old processor Died and I purchased one of these off of Ebay, now just want to make sure it will work...

    No Donnie, the motherboard for the Compaq Presario SR1050NX won't support an AMD Athlon 64 processor.

    The reason why is;
    A) The Processor socket on the SR1050NX's motherboard is a Socket A. (Also known as Socket 462)

    Hp Support > Compaq Presario SR1050NX > Specifications > Motherboard Specifications >

    CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short.
    Look to the right of the CPU heading:
    Socket A (Processor socket)

    This is the Socket A processor socket used on your motherboard,

    You can click on the photo of the Socket A processor socket, to the upper Right, to enlarge.

    The AMD Athlon 64 line of processors came out after the Socket A, and used the Socket 939 first.
    Then on to the Socket AM2.
    (Socket 940 for some models)

    List of AMD Athlon 64 Microprocessors,

    I have a quest

    you can always upgrade the CPU with a similar kind of CPU with same number of pins or same type of interface....but your motherboard also should support that...or else all your effort will become wasted..
