I have ordered a AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ AM2 (ADO5000IAA5DO) Dual-Core CPU 2.6 GHz to upgrade my Pavilion a1600n, and I am just curious to know if I am going to need to update BIOS on my desktop before installing the new processor, or if there is any steps I will need to take before inserting the new CPU or after I insert it into the desktop.
Thanks in advance, Also I am currently running Ubuntu 16.10 if that will have any effect on the answer given.
The CPU is listed, so that part is OK. I would not suggest any BIOS change, if it were offered.
