HP Pavilion a6300f & Q9650
#1
hi i'm trying to update my HP Pavilion a6300f bios https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01287561 to be able to use a Intel Core 2 Q9650 currently is not supported, someone on another forum sent me this download link to update my bios my question is it safe and how do I do it i'm afraid of possibly bricking my computer is this a 50/50 shot?  He said that the support is already in the microcode it sounds right because I used the Q9650 in here before I realized it wasn't supported and it booted up and worked but only showed 2 cores and I kept crashing and getting blue screens.

Would really appreciate help Smile

I don't analyse another's mods.
Post screenshots of first (CPU) & third (Mainboard) tabs of CPU-Z with current CPU.
Tell sSpec of your Q9650.

I don't understand what the sSpec link is are you implying to call Intel and ask?

You can't tell me?

I'm not suggesting you're trying to cause problems just was asking if this can "brick" my bios.

It's an official release. So long as you have matched up your PC model with this BIOS release you should be okay.

Just don't turn off the computer in the middle of your BIOS update.

There's also another version of the NAPA-GL8E motherboard mine is the MCP73M01H1 is this irrelevant?
