Question about HP 530 Notebook PC
I have a hp 530 notebook with 1.6ghz celeron cpu. Want to upgrade to intel dual core T2600 cpu at 2.16ghz. Is it possible? I have tried Intel T2300 but it won't boot. Picks up the cpu in bios, but that is as far as it goes. T2300 is SL8VR and T2600 is SL8VN. Please help!
It's not posible to upgrade to a dual core, the motherboard is a different design. Keep in mind that the processor, motherboard and memory have a matched frequency. If the processor doesn't match the board then it won't recognize it. Since the board does recognize the T2300, it may be that you need to match the memory in order to get it to boot. Match the memory by going to patriotmem.com and entering the model that the T2300 came from, it will tell you the memory frequency. If the memory matches the processor simply will not work with that board.
