Hi:

 

Below is the link tothe quickspecs for your notebook.

 

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12684_div/12684_div.HTML

 

You will find this list of supported processors:

 

Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T9500 (2.60 GHz, 6 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)*
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T9300 (2.50 GHz, 6 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)*
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T8300 (2.40 GHz, 3 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)*
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T8100 (2.10 GHz, 3 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)*
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7800 (2.60 GHz, 4 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)*
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7700 (2.40 GHz, 4 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)*
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7500 (2.20 GHz, 4 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)*
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7300 (2.00 GHz, 4 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)*
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7250 (2.00 GHz, 2 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)*
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7100 (1.80 GHz, 2 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)*
Intel Celeron Processor 550 (2.00 GHz, 1 MB L2 cache, 533 MHz FSB)*
Intel Celeron Processor 540 (1.86 GHz, 1 MB L2 cache, 533 MHz FSB)*

Intel Celeron Processor 530 (1.73 GHz, 1 MB L2 cache, 533 MHz FSB)*

 

Go to your notebook's support and driver page and read the BIOS release notes to see if a BIOS update is needed before upgrading to a faster processor.

You're very welcome.

 

Yes, it is probably a screen size difference.

 

Yours has a 14.1" screen, and the 6710b has a 15.4" screen, but have the same guts.

 

If you click on the bios revision link I posted, and then on the left side of the page, click on Download Drivers and Software, you will see you are on the 6510b support page.

 

Definitely not a dumb question.

 

I could have made a mistake, and that would not have been good sending you to the wrong page regarding BIOS info!

 

If for some reason you need to update the bios, you need to do it in XP or Vista. Those are the only supported operating systems for flashing the BIOS.

 

If you were to flash the BIOS while running windows 7, there is an extremely good chance that you will kill the PC for good.

 

Best Regards,

 

Paul
