Re: how to fix "1801-Microcode Update Error" in HP Compaq dc7800 Convertible Minitower

Hi:

 

The E7500 processor is not supported in the dc7800, which is why you are getting the microcode error.

 

Below is the list of supported processors.

 

Intel Core 2 Duo Processors:

 

Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 Processor (2.20-GHz, 2 MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB)

Intel Core 2 Duo E4600 Processor (2.40-GHz, 2 MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB)

Intel Core 2 Duo E4700 Processor (2.6-GHz, 2 MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB)

Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 Processor (2.33-GHz, 4 MB L2 cache, 1333-MHz FSB)

Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Processor (2.66-GHz, 4 MB L2 cache, 1333-MHz FSB)

Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 Processor (3.0-GHz, 4 MB L2 cache, 1333-MHz FSB)

Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 Processor (2.53 GHz, 3 MB L2 cache, 1066 MHz FSB)

Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 Processor (2.66 GHz, 3MB L2 cache, 1066 MHz FSB)

Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 Processor (2.66-GHz, 6 MB L2 cache, 1333-MHz FSB)

Intel Core 2 Duo E8300 Processor (2.83-GHz, 6 MB L2 cache, 1333-MHz FSB)

Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Processor (3.00-GHz, 6 MB L2 cache, 1333-MHz FSB)

Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 Processor (3.16-GHz, 6 MB L2 cache, 1333-MHz FSB)

Inter Core 2 Duo E8600 Processor (3.33-GHz, 6 MB L2 Cache, 1333-MHz FSB)

 

As a long shot, you can try installing the latest microcode update. You need to use a bootable USB flash drive with dos files so you can run the flashbin.exe command after you copy the microcode update files to your bootable flash drive.

 

I can't get to the dc7800 support site. When you can, select the microcode update download from 2010  v1.14

 

If you are unfamiliar with how to make a flash drive bootable, here is a good "how to" article with the files you need.

@pheonix028,

 

I understand you are receiving an 1801-microcode error.

Is the system able to boot into Windows at all?

 

What is the product number?

NOTE: Do NOT provide the serial number.

Hi:

 

Please read my post above marked Solved.

 

You need to install the latest microcode update from the dc7800 support and driver page by using a bootable usb flash drive.
