ML150 g3 sever upgrade from 5050 to e5310

Hi,

Can anyone tell me if my ML150 G3 server which has a 5050 CPU in it can be upgraded to E5310 CPU? I have tried as it says on the site it can but the fans just stay on maximum and nothing on the display.

Thanks.

Just one CPU and BIOS Version/Date HP O07, 06/02/2007. Not sure if that is the most up to date and I have had problems finding the most recent. Maybe I am just stupid but I could not see it in the driver/ software updates and a link on another question in the forum points to a dead link. Lights wise the light is green on the front but I am not in the office now as it is 11PM here. If you can give me any help for things to check in the morning I would be most grateful.

Thanks.

Hi,
The only 5310 supported in the server is a
Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® processor E5310 ( 1.6 GHz, 1066 FSB) part 437903-B21
Really important, you cannot have a processor mismatch, only the stepping but this can be fix by flashing the latest BIOS to the System board
