Specs: Windows 7 64bit, athlon 2 4c 620/4gig
I have a hp dc5750 sff with a amd athalon 64 3800 duel core am2(940) socket the mobo is
HP 409305-002 Compaq dc5750 Micro BTX Windsor-PV Motherboard AMD ATHLON 64 X2

and I bought a AMD CPU Athlon 64 X2 5000+/2.6G/1M/AM2 / AM2/940 SOCKET to upgrade it

but after I installed the processor the monitor couldnt get a signal nor the mouse or keyboard but it sounded like it was trying to boot and when I put the old one back in it works fine I dont understand cause even on the hp support page for this comp it list it as a option.

I even tried a AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000B 2.6ghz CPU ADO500BIAA5DO AM2 Socket
and no luck is thier any reason why this is happining or a way to make it work

You can always try partitioning your hard drive in windows 7 disc mangement throw windows vista 32bit on the new partition and then upgrade the bios from there. then when you are done you can take back the partition space that you used for windows vista just make sure before you do that the defualt operating system is set on windows 7 under startup and recovery options in windows 7 before you remove the vista partition and take back the drive space.

they are interchangeable only if the motherboard is able to read it now of course putting an am3 or even an am2 + cpu into an am2 motherboard will bottleneck your cpu because am2 motherboards only use hypertransport 2.0 instead of hypertransport 3.0 which was introduced with the am2+ cpu and motherboards.

Leave the original CPU in place, upgrade the BIOS, then try the new CPU again.

do you think thats all it is? cause that would be to simple or might it have something to do with the wattage cause the 5000amd xp proc (windsor) I got is 85w and I believe the stock one is either 45w or 65w? It is hard to find the specific info you need for these mobo even having all the correct part numbers I cant find the max processor I could put in it or like what the diff is between the brisbine and the windsor am2 940 sockets

Windsor-PV Motherboard AMD ATHLON 64 X2

So yes because it can support an 89w cpu's

it will be able to support 85w 5000+ X2

The Windsor was made on the 95nm die and the Brisbane was made of the 65nm die

i mean updating the bios is worth a shot

thank its nice to talk to someone who answers questions and doesnt leave web links that you have obviously been to before coming here (I would hope) I will try that tomarrow and let you how it works.

First time someone actually responded wilth answers and all these other guys that think they know the answer you wouldnt need to leave a web link if you actually knew. People come here as a last resort after doing their own reserch (at least I do) so technical answers are needed here thanks again!

well I noticed the bios update was the same for all operating systems so I didnt have to install a seperate os . The bios was from 2007 and the update was 2011, I updated the bios and put the new processor in and IT WORKS!!!! THANKS!
Hope If I ever have any more questions in the future I will get someone like you that actually knows how to help. Thanks again
