It Worked!

I recently bought a Compaq Presario CQ62-219WM Laptop which only came with a Celeron 2.2ghz 1mb cache single core. I did my research and found a core 2 duo 2.2 ghz 2mb cahe same socket voltage etc on Ebay and installed it today. Runs like a dream! Damn HP would help, nor intel because they didn't know with HP's Bios if an upgrade would work, but it did!

  1. Great, enjoy!
  2. Do you know if this has a feature like cool n quiet where frequency, multiplier etc drops while not under a load?
  3. Best answer
    It should have Intels speed step which is their equivalent.
  4. Ok, thats why it does that then. Cool beans man. Strange when I booted right after install it didn't say anything about a hardware change like normal desktops do, just booted right up no problems!
  5. I have swapped out CPU's in desktops with out getting that message, even ones I swapped out a mobo with nforce 3 for a nforce 4 from the same manufacturer and windows did not notice the hardware change.
  6. thats cool. I am pretty happy though, I mean a wal-mart special is now a perfect laptop for what I need. Gets a tad warmer but nothing too serious. I used some Zero-Therm thermal paste that I used on my AMD build. Shes running good though. Next step 4gb or ram, currently 2gb
