I'm trying to upgrade my HP Pavillion a1100y computer. Below are the specifics. I get an error when I install the CPU. The message is something to the effect of unsupported CPU. I'm going to give it another try, but wanted to know if I need to do a reset to the BIOS or something so that it will recongnize the new CPU. It currently has a Celeron 2.8mhz with 533mhz bus.
I have an Intel Pentium 670 3.8 CPU with 800mhz bus.
