I need help downgrading from Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.66Ghz to Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 2.13Ghz. I will give my dad the lower spec Philips machine for web browzing, word processing, etc. And the Quad I will put in my dell.
I have recently purchased the Philips HEPC 7511 from PC World, Product code: 819725.
* Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q6600
* 2.4GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 8MB Cache
* Genuine Windows Vista (R) Home Premium
* 2GB Memory
* 400GB Hard Drive
* Dual Layer DVD Rewriter
* 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 8500 Graphics
* 6 USB connections.
I have sucessfully removed the Q6600 C2Q and put into my DELL machine where the bios automatically detects it. Although when I (downgrade) put the E6400 C2D into the Philips machine the system does not boot all the way through to windows. Does any1 know a way to solve this problem please or how I can configure the BIOS.
