HP Recommended
hp compaq dc 5100
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

I installed pentium 4 630 to my hp compaq 5100 but it gives micro code error, how can I do this uptade update. Can you help me?

By the way, although it does not give micro code error, the machine is working and processing but I want to update it generally.

Hi:

 

You should be able to update the microcode with the new processor you installed.

 

After you update the microcode and restart the PC, the error should be gone.

Hi:

 

According to the HP Quickspecs at the link below, the P4-630 should be supported.

 

https://www.nts.nl/site/html/modules/pdf/PC/dc_5100.pdf

 

The only suggestion I can offer would be to update the Microcode.

 

If the file doesn't run on W7, you may need to have a PC running XP to create the bootable floppy disk that you boot from to update the microcode.

 

And you will need a floppy disk drive (internal or USB).   The microcode can only be updated via a floppy disk, no exceptions or workarounds.

 

HOW TO USE:

  1. Download the SoftPaq .EXE file to a directory on your hard drive.
  2. Execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions.

1.10 A

 

Updates Intel Pentium 4 Processor microcode for F34, F41, F43, F49, F4A, F64, and F65 steppings.

Where can I find a floppy? How many mb should I have a sewing machine or a cnc machine?
I live in turkey. Don't I have a chance to update with a USB flash drive?

Hi:

 

You can only use a USB FDD.

 

The floppy disks you need are the 3.5" 1.44 MB size.

Here is the cheapest USB Floppy disk drive I could find.

Can I keep the new processor installed while doing the micro code update or should I install my old processor?
