I have HP Compaq Presario V3018TU Notebook PC.
Current specifications of it are-
Intel Core Solo T1350 1.86GHz, 2MB L2 Cache, 533MHz FSB
2GB DDR2 667MHz RAM
120GB SATA HDD
Intel 945GM Chipset
802.11ABG Wireless LAN & Bluetooth 2.0
14.1" LCD Screen.
I found that various processors are available for cheap on eBay.
So rather selling this machine for less price, I am thinking to upgrade it.
According to HP's Service Manual, V3000 series can have Intel Dual Core T2600 2.16GHz Processor.
I am wondering that will it support Core2Duo series, say Intel Core2Duo T7200 ?
I read socket information, it says Socket M Supports T7200.
But will BIOS identify the processor ?
Looking forward for expert advice.
We can't answer your question, teh only way you are going to know iof the BIOS will recognise correctly the CPU is either:
A: Check with HP
B: chekck with the motherboard mnanufacturer
C: find someone that has doen teh ugrade
