I tried upgrading my Sony VAIO PCV-RX660 with a Celeron 2.7ghz CPU. It won't even boot. It turns on and a dummy (hdd/cpu) light comes on, but no booting or anything. If I put the P4 back in, everything is fine. The mobo the Celeron came off of is a mPGA478 socket, where the VAIO (the one i'm using) is a standard 478 socket. The bus speed is the same and all that, i just want the better CPU. Anything I can do to make it work, or am I up the creek?
The Celeron came out of a HP a305w.
