Ok here is the issue I had taken a quad core Q6600 out of this HP Pavilion Elite m9047c system with a IPIBL-LA Motherobard. i put the quad core in to another system and its working fine. so i had a Pentium D laying around and put that into the HP. It worked fine. Got windows installed. and i did all the drivers. i noticed the BIOS was out of date so i decided to update it. well... yea... the BIOS isnt trashed its just with the latest bios the system no longer accepts my Pentium D it only accepts Core Duo, Core 2 Duo, and Core 2 Quad CPU's.

so i was wondering if anyone can help me track down an older or the original bios that i can flash it with.

thanks

What version did you download?
The latest one is v5.13, released May 2008

The specs on HP's site

say it doesn't support the Pentium D at all :S
If you've got the original driver DVD, you could try looking for the original BIOS, although I don't know if manufacturers bundle drivers anymore. (Last system I saw that did this was an Optiplex from the mid 1990s)

Did you call HP and ask what you should do? I know you probably won't get a good answer, but you could try...

Remove Q6600 and put in the Pentium D......

The amount of time you have spent in this thread you could have done it now a 1000x over

inthe amount of time it took you to write that you could have googled the motherboard to find if there is an older bios i can use to flash it.


seriously though. If i had an older bios to flash it with i would have.. BUT that is why the threads topic is "Need older BIOS for HP system"

thanks everyone for the help. if anyone finds an older version let me know
