No boot after swapping Core 2 Duo 6400 with Core 2 Quad Q9300

Hi,

I have a HP Compaq dc7700p that i have taken the board out of. It comes with a 6400 Core 2 duo Socket 775 cpu.

Im donoring some bits between that and a HP cs7800p machine and i want to take the cpu (Q9300 Core 2 Quad) from this machine and put onto the board from the HP 7700 machine.

However when i put the Q9300 into the board from the 7700p it doesnt boot - it powers up for about 1 second then shuts off.

AS soon as i put the Core 2 Duo 6400 back into its own board it boots fine.

I have checked heat sink is tight, paste etc etc but no life from it.

They are both socket 775 cpu's so why cant i get any life from the Q9300 in the HP 7700 board?

Thnaks

You don't say what the motherboard is but have you checked the CPUs supported by it? Perhaps it needs a BIOS update to handle quad core processors.

I'm with chub_tor on this one.Post your motherboard make/model and we will be able to check whether your mobo can handle the CPU.

Hi,

not sure how to find make/model of board.

The HP Part Number is 404673-001 if that helps at all?

It looks like the CPU you are trying to install is not supported. HP Specs. Scroll down.
