How do I get around and Error concerning a CPU that I'm trying to upgrade to. My Machine is an HP 300-1003 which has a factory installed CPU that is the AMD Athlon II 235e Dual core Processor. I want to Upgrade it to the AMD Athlon II x4 605e Processor which from the manufacture is suppose to be supported. When I turn on the system I get the Error stating UNSUPPORTED CPU and the machine then promptly shuts down.
HP customizes their machines, like all OEMs, to only support certain processors so people will be forced to buy new machines. There is no way around it.
