question about upgrading
currently i have a hp pavilion laptop with a 2.4ghz processor it has 512kb l2 cache. I am looking to upgrade the processor, and i just have a couple questions about compatibility. Can i run a newer processor like a prescott or a northwood as long as the sockets are the same? also could i run one that uses hyper threading technology? the board supports 533 fsb for sure and they were available with a 2.8ghz from the factory. But the main thing im looking to upgrade is the l2 cache and i know it is in the processor, so could i just upgrade to lets say 2.4ghz/2meg L2 chip with no problems?
