    Hello everyone, I have been trying to install a new CPU in my HP Pavilion g4 1117dx laptop. I am using supported CPUs, but both ones I've tried fail and throw the "CPU Not Functional" caps lock blink. You can read more about my problem at overclock . net / t/1434232/new-processor-having-major-issues#post_20999080

    It was suggested that I come here and have someone double check the microcode in the bios to see if it actually supports the CPU. The laptop came with an AMD a4 3300m, and I've been trying to use a a6 3400m and a a8 3520m with no luck. The bios version I have is F.6A, which is the latest. Is there anything else I need to provide in order to do this?

    Thank you!
