yeah i saw that but apparently that bios update is for this motherboard:
P5LP-LE (Leonite2):

whereas my motherboard is this one:

the only difference i can see is that the leonite 2 has 1 pci-e x1 slot instead of a normal PCI slot in the leonite (1). but this would be good because it supports up to cure 2 duo =D, i wonder if this works =D, i wonder if this can be used to support quad core CPUs, that would be great =D

also when i look on the HP support website using my PC model hp lavilion a1620.uk , the highest BIOS update it comes up with is the 3.19 update.
Not to be the daredevil but I think your best shot would be to see if the Leonite2 BIOS works. If there is a removable chip I will cover any failures under our Chip Reprogramming service. If you proceed, I recommend using the flashing procedure described on our BIOS Update page.

I don't think quad-core processor will work on this computer since there is no quad-core processor listed as compatible with Intel 945G chipset. The correct course of action right now is to get a processor you want to upgrade to & try it out on your computer. If you know anyone who willing to loan the processor to you, that would be great. There are three scenarios will be expected:-
  1. Computer turn ON but no boot - blank screen
    - This happen if the processor is not supported. No fix/solution for this.
  2. Computer turn ON, booting but get microcode update error message
    - This require simple fix which is add new microcode to support the processor.
  3. Computer turn ON & booting normally
    - No fix needed.
I have a hp a1726x computer that comes with a Asus P5LP-LE leucite3 motherboard. I have bios version 5.03 and wanted to update to 5.23. The 5.23 bios update does not update. I think it is made for the Asus P5LP-Le leonite2 motherboard. The 5.23 update adds support for the Intel Core 2 duo e6x00 series of processors. I just got an Intel core 2 duo e6700 and I wanted to know if yourll can just add the microprocessor code to the 5.03 bios and I can reinstall that bios with the support added. My computer came with a pentium D 915. If anybody knows how i could do this or at least point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it. I live in Dallas TX, Is there anyone I could nearby that could help me.

Here are some links

Heres the v5.03 BIOS with the microcode from the v5.23 bios. Hope it helps for you Smile

OMG, wow you actually did it, I cant wait to try it out tomorrow, Thank you so much. Also does this contain all the microcode from 5.23 or just the e6700?

Ok so it installed using winflash and i clicked on update all,it went threw and installed. it worked with the old chip, but with the e6700, it was just a black screen, if there is anything else that could be done, please let me know.
sorry to bring this thread back but its looks like the P5LP-LE leucite3 boards cannot handle Core 2 duos, even with the "ported" microcodes from a bios made for a different version of the P5LP-LE board like the Leonite. the VRMs (aka. voltage regulator modules from older P5LP-LE boards) cannot properly handle the C2Ds
