I am trying to upgrade my processor on a Pavilion p6530f using windows 7 64-bit. I installed the processor and I get two short beeps and 1 long beep and the computer does not boot. According to the beep code chart on the HP web site it sounds like a problem with the graphics card or lack of. The graphics are integrated on the i3 540 processor that came with the system, but the new processor i5 760 does not have integrated graphics with it so I am a little cloudy on what all this means.

Curious11, welcome to the forum.
It means that you will have to buy a discrete video card (PCI Express x16). This is actually going to give you a good performance boost. However, I suggest that you upgrade the power supply unit (PSU), also. The current PSU is only 250W. Newer mid-level cards require a minimum of 400W. I normally recommend at least 500W. This will give you more choices of video cards and future upgrades. I like Corsair and OCZ. You should measure the current PSU and compare the measurements to the one that you choose.
I like XFX, EVGA, Sapphire and PNY video cards in that order. You should stay under 9" in length to assure that it fits into the space provided. Some members have used cards measuring 9.25" without reporting problems. The card in the link is a card that will work. Read the Customer Reviews to see what users have to say about it. There are several other cards that will do the job nicely.
