  1. Can you list the model of HP Pavillion for us so we can look up the motherboard details?
    Or run the free Speccy utility program to get the motherboard details.
  2. it has a stats sticker on the side so here goes -
    hp pavilion media center tv m7595
    intel core 2 duo processor e6400
    2.13ghz, 2mb L2 cache EM64T
    667mhz ddr2 sdram
  3. If I sorted out the motherboard options correctly you have the HP Leonite-GL8E motherboard. You might want to run Speccy and see if you can confirm that. Motherboard specifications
    Motherboard manufacturer's name: ASUS P5LP-LE 945G chipset.
    HP/Compaq name: Leonite-GL8E
    FSB support for 800Mhz and 1066Mhz
    CPU support: Core 2 Duo E6x00 and Core 2 Duo E4x00
    No support for Quad core CPUs or Wolfdale dual core CPUs or E6850.

    There really isn't a much of an upgrade option for that motherboard. E6700 OEM $172.50 or E4700 Core 2 Duo 2.60 GHz $145
    IMO it's not a big enough bump up in performance going from 2.13Ghz to 2.6Ghz & 2.66Ghz to be worth that $145 & $172.50.
  4. ok cheers very much appreciated,
