Upgrading processor from intel pentium dual core t2310 1.46 GHz to som

I am trying to figure out what processor is compatible with my motherboard in my HP Pavilion dv6628us notebook. I've read the manual and looked on HP's PartSurfer. PartSurfer listed a number of them from 1.46 GHz to 2.4 GHz. I purchased an intel duo processor 2.4GHz that did not work. Now I'm trying to figure out if that processor wasn't compatible or if it is just faulty. If it is not faulty or compatible, I need to know what is compatiable so I can purchase it tonight and have it shipped by Wednesday because I am going through serious withdrawals without my computer. Help me please.

    Thanks for replying. I updated my computer from vista to windows 7. Hp didn't have updates available for Windows 7 on the support page for my laptop so I had to install the one they had for Vista. Should I have updated my BIOS from a laptop's support page that had an update for Windows 7 such as this one below:


    here is mine:
  3. I have a questions. Do all the specs have to match on the processor? For example, will I have to buy a processor that only supports 1mb (L2) if that's what the processor's cache is? I know you're able to go above the bus speed.
