Is it possible to use an intel e6600 to upgrade from a e2160. I ask the question as i have tried fitting it to my HP m9070a, but when i re-start it only comes up with the HP pre-page and won't go any further or respond to system recovery commands
http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport... is that your motherboard? it should support the processor. You may need to go into BIOS setup, not sure on hp but you may need to press either DEL F2 or F10 or something to get into it. You should then select "reset to defaults" or something like that, then save and exit. Its probably come up with an error but the hp screen wont let you see that. there should also be an option to "diable splash screen logo" or something. do that so you can see the error. you may need to look through the manual for the computer or for the motherboard to find this info.
