CPU Upgrade

HP Pro 3400 MT
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello friends,

 

My friend has a Desktop Computer HP Pro 3400 MT (LH129EA) with the following processor:

https://ark.intel.com/products/53483/Intel-Pentium-Processor-G630-3M-Cache-2_70-GHz


To increase the speed of her computer, on my recommendation, we ordered the following processor:

https://ark.intel.com/products/65693/Intel-Core-i3-3220-Processor-3M-Cache-3_30-GHz


With this processor, the computer does not start ?!  I upgraded the BIOS, but without changes!?


The motherboard chipset is Intel H61 and according to the manufacturer, (Intel) this processor is compatible with this MB:

But for hp it does not apply, "They are a special story"
Now tell me, you, "EXPERTS" from hp, where did you manipulate the BIOS, so as not to recognize all these processors from the previous list ?!

Which poor processors are now compatible with your "perfect" product ?!

Thank you in advance for your help.

Intel Core i7 processors:


•Intel Core i7-2600 processor (3.4 GHz, 8MB cache, 4C/8T, Turbo, HD 2000 Graphics) Up to 3.8 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost Technology


Intel Pentium processors:

•Intel Pentium G630 processor (2.7 GHz, 3MB cache, 2C/2T)

•Intel Celeron G540 processor (2.5 GHz, 2MB cache, 2C/2T)

 

 

But, you purchased: Intel Core i3 3220 Processor 3M Cache 3.30 GHz

which is not on the above list. Did you purchase it from HP? Did HP advise you to purchase this item?

 

2. The only BIOS-update I found was from 2013 -- a long time ago, and its "details" do not mention any update to support "new" processors.

 

3. Attempting to insult HP is bad manners, but it is a good way for you to get ignored on this forum.
