HP D220 CPU Upgrade

I have an HP D220, with a 2.0 GHz Celeron processor, 2 GB RAM.

I purchased an Intel Pentium 2.66 GHz CPU to replace the Celeron processor.

I updated the BIOS to the current version before I installed the CPU.

When I installed the CPU, the BIOS recognized it, but it did not boot successfully to Win XP. For troubleshooting, I tried to eliminate the operating system, I tried to boot off of an Ubuntu 8.10 CD. That worked fine with my previous CPU, but it did not work with the new CPU.

Are there any steps that I needed to take prior to installing the new CPU?

The D220 Specs list acceptable socket 478 CPUs, and the P4 2.66 GHz is on the list, but are there only certain 2.66 GHz CPUs that will work? I know that I can not use a Prescott Core CPU, but I installed a Northwood Core processor. Should that have worked?

Thanks,

Lance

I don't think the Celeron models support the 533MHz FSB speed.

The d220 does support the Pentium 4 2.66 GHz. I don't see any updates to the BIOS that are required for using the 2.66 GHz processor.

Just as a wild shot try clearing the BIOS.

Hope this helps.

Re: HP D220 CPU Upgrade

It was a bad CPU (the 'new' 2.66). I ordered a replacement, and it worked fine!

Thanks for your advice.
