1001-Microcode Update Error.

HP Recommended
Ejemplo: Compaq dc5700 SFF.
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I updated the processor of my Compaq DC5700 SFF to an Intel Core 2 Duo E7500.

As soon as I started the machine the processor´s fan began to work at maximum speed making a lot of noise.

Then a message was shown in a black screen:  "1001-Microcode Update error. Missing or invalid microcode update ..."

I would like to know how to solve this problem.

Windows opens but the fan is always working at full and making so much noise.  And I guess it will be burned pretty soon if the microcode is not entered to the BIOS ( I think ).

Mine is an old machine so I know that it´s a problem that many people had before me; so the solution should be well known but not for me.

Thank you for your help and God bless you !!!
