Upgrade CPU to Q9100

HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC FV278AV CNF0020TG9
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have HP Pavilion dv7t-2200

BIOS F.46         08/25/2011

Mainboard HP3624 rev18.51

Chipset  PM45 rev7

Southbridge  82801IM(ICH9-M) rev3

Bay CPU Intel Quad Core Q9100 . 

But laptop not started. Just black screen and LEDs ("CapsLock"&"NumLock") blinks 1 time - Error CPU.

1) Does the motherboard support this processor?

2) Is it necessary to purchase cpu at number 507947-001? If I just buy it by model name will it not be supported?

It should have worked according to chapter 1, page one of the service manual...and it doesn't show that a different system board is required according to the list of motherboard parts in chapter 3.


There is only one ordering code for that processor, and you have it.


So ordering by the HP part number will only get you the same one you have now. 


And you have the latest BIOS revision installed, so it isn't that either.


I would have to conclude that the service manual is wrong, and only the dual core processors are supported.
