Here are the compatible options as published by HP. They are compatible with the HP BIOS on your motherboard.. 

  • Socket: 775
  • Supports the following processors:
    • Core 2 Duo E6x00 (Conroe core) up to E6700
    • Core 2 Duo E4x00 (Conroe core) up to E4400
    • Pentium E2000 series (Conroe core, 1 MB cache) up to E2160
    • Pentium 4 6x1 series (Cedar Mill core) up to 661 (3.6 GHz)
    • Celeron (Conroe core) up to 440
    • Celeron D 3xx series (Cedar Mill core) up to 365 (3.6 GHz)

 

 Here is a link to the motherboard specifications.

 

I recommend an Intel Core2 duo E6700. Unfortunately they are a bit hard to find. Don''t bother trying anything with designation numbers above above that or with a 50 on the end (i.e. E6750). It would be a crap shoot and you come up with snake eyes.

Re: change processor to hp pavilion a6214x

Digging up an old thread here, but I'm looking at upgrading my a6214x as well.

 

I noticed that for the core 2 duo processors it lists a Conroe core.  It doesn't look like they're making many of those anymore.  Would a Wolfdale core like this one work?
