This pc would not benefit from a CPU upgrade. You could buy a used pc much more powerfull than this one from sites like Ebay for about £50 or so.
You would need more memory, older memory is now very expensive.
So it would cost more money to upgrade this pc than it would to buy a replacement.
you could try this guide to speed things up http://www.fixya.com/support/r5272277-secure_clean_computers

Can I upgrade my DV7-2173cl processor to one that supports virtualization (vt-x or vt-d). Processor is: 2.00 GHz Intel Centrino 2 Processor Technology featuring Intel Core2 Duo Processor P7350


Would be quite challenging. From cost perspective it may be good to get a new laptop rather than trying to upgrade. Also the n1000c is rather old and compaq or HP doesnt support it. So perhaps you can consider investing in a new laptop :)

I would like to upgrade my cpu. Can I put a larger cpu? I have a compaq EVO D510 with a 1.8 processor.


You can upgrade the speed of the CPU. Of course in order to do that you must know the motherboard capabilities. If the motherboard is upgradable to 2.0ghz processor with the same specs with your 1.8ghz processor then you can upgrade. If the motherboard is un-upgradable, my suggestion is to replace the motherboard, get a new processor, memory module, etc. Meaning you just bought a new computer. For the mean time, upgrade your memory module. Un-install the software that you don't need. Especially the one the eats up the processor speed.

Evo d3d upgrade!?


In the older days it was easier to tell you right away which processor would fit as there was not much variance in slot configuration. The Pentium 4 was released in several slot (sometimes called socket or pin-array configurations)configurations. The easiest way to tell is to remove your processor. Where it plugs into the slot (socket) you will see marked on the slot holder the configuration (Should say something like Socket 775 or Socket 478). Once you know what will fit in there you can go about ordering your upgraded processor. I would do some more information digging to see if your motherboard can handle the upgrade and how much memory it can handle. Have you already upgraded the memory? Sometimes more memory can make your computer faster. Also do you want it to be faster because it has gotten slower or because you want to run better games? If it has just gotten slower then go to CNET's download.com and download some Malware removal tools to help get your system cleaned up.
Let me know if this helps. This is a starting point.

Processor Upgrade


did you reset the bios first. ? (id pull the coin cell)
you did all that backwards , the steps are.
1: read the HP service guide see all processors supported.
its a short list. its not like changing light bulbs.
2: the BIOS must support that precessor too.
3: the upgrade if possible , SEE?

d530 SFF, is a small form factor desktop.
it came with
Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHz
my guess is you want the 3.3mHz version. ( a wasted effort and cash in my opinion the ,it is only fractionally faster, (go for 2 or 4 cores and win)
these old PC are mostly NOW scrapped, gone, nobody wants them.
for good reasons. (no support and no parts, and slow as slug)
worse is it runs XP the dead, now, virus magnet.
support at HP says.

HP COmpaq EVO Business D530

circa 2003, 14 years young?
some sold with Windows 2000. ! ouch and Mandrake 9.1 Linux - Light and OS/2...
specs. that matter
Intel 865G Chipset
800-MHz, 533-MHz or 400-MHz FSB (front side bus limits)
and the memory must match it. speed wise.

the parts surfer (HP ) shows it cam with 17 processor options.
sold newer, the full p/n in the service tag tells this.. not told by you.
some Celeron and other P4s.

the fastest one is, (HP P/N#)

335813-001

Intel Pentium 4 processor - 3.20GHz (Northwood with Hyper-Threading, 800MHz front side bus, 512KB L2 cache, FCPGA2, Socket 478)

the problem with that is the BIOS, many times the newer faster
the hp support page is active.
the last BIOS update is for just this, processors

eg: BIOS 109
Updates Intel Pentium 4 Processor microcode for F41, F34, F29 and F49 steppings. (cupid app shows this)

getting the BIOS correct first is hard.. due to variances, in mobo

https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-compaq-d530-small-form-factor-desktop-pc/316713
lession1:
when PC boots, the BIOS scans many thing but CPU is #1
it scans it to see if it recognizes, it.
if it can not do that, (not in its old 2003 list) then it defaults to slowest CPU support, what else can it do?
the it sets up clock rates properly, this is super basics in PCs.
Then it scans the memory sticks to see if they can run at this clock rate, if not it goes to slow speeds. (what else can it do ?)
it will go to the slowest ram stick inserted. speeds.
or to slowest processors you have actual.

that is all.
