|I found further info, cobbled together from info found for two more recent Topics since this one. |
Someone was looking for info about upgrading their hard drive today, on a Compaq Evo D310 desktop.
Specific model number: 302647-999
Enter this in the left box: 302647-999 - search
It uses the same mboard -
"PC Board [Electronic Parts]
It's a CTO model - Configured To Order - the whole range of Processors Compaq offered is listed, up to 2.53ghz
Apparently it's a.k.a. LUXOR, probably Compaq's or HP's own name for it.
From that and many other "hits" it appears 283983-001 has a plain 845 main chipset, the first one that supports DDR ram (the first version supported the older plain SDram).
This site I found a few days ago:
It lists cpus that work in specific mboard models, and the specific bios version needed to support them.
At the left side of each cpu listed as known to work is a blue highlighted link. If you click on that link it shows you which specific Intel part number(s) the cpus have, and which code(s) are on the cpus.
It doesn't list Compaq or HP or Lite-on models, but in theory you should be able to find out which specific cpus work with the plain 845 chipset by looking up models that have the plain 845 chipset, that support DDR 200 and 266mhz ram, only
Of course, there's no guarantee the bios version that's on the 283983-001 will recognize all of them, but it gives you specific info about which cpus would work if the bios version did support all of them.
If you're not sure it has the plain 845 chipset and supports DDR 200 or 266mhz ram, only, look up the model on the web.
E.g. search for: MSI 845 Pro2-C
