Hello everyone, I have a HP Pavilion a1034n and I was wondering about the processors my motherboard could support. I know it's a really old computer everyone has been telling me to replace the computer, but I keep it in shape really well replacing parts and upgrading I even got Windows 7 running smoothly on here :D haha anyways...

Motherboard Specs

I know its only Pentium 4 processors, but it doesn't say anything about it only supporting a single core or not? Any help please?
Thanks everyone!

Intel Pentium 4 650 3.4GHz Prescott

I think that is the fastest that board will support. No Core/Core2/ or quads will work in it.

Hard to justify an upgrade on it at this point unless you run across a CPU dirt cheap.

To find a CPU that fits you motherboard you must match the socket type. The socket type according to the specs that you gave me is LGA 775. Here is a list of CPUs on Newegg that support that socket type:

Yeah I had a feeling that multi-cores were out of the question :/ oh well, may I ask how you were able to come to that answer?

I know that the socket type is LGA 775, but I don't think that the motherboard would be able to support a quad core even though it has a correct socket type haha

Usually you can find out the information from the motherboard specs from HP.

Thanks for all the help guys, I think I'll just try to stick with the single core processors just for safe precautions.

CPU/Processor Socket: LGA775
Supports processor up to 3.4 GHz
Supports Intel Pentium 4 HT processors

Front-side bus (FSB) 800 MHz

Chipset Northbridge: Intel 915GV Graphics Memory and Controller Hub (MCH)
Southbridge: Intel ICH6


The specs from the HP site pretty much lay it out. The 915 chipset was the first, and consequently the most limited of the 775 chipsets.

Just curious. The board doesn't even have a slot for a videocard. What do you expect from a CPU upgrade? Unless you are running a low end Celeron now, you won't see a noticeable difference in most tasks.

I hate those motherboards that doesn't have a graphics card slot.
