    I have a HP Pavilion 6336 with a 333mh AMD k6-2 processor. I installed an AMD k6 550 mh processor. I thought my computer would recognize the new processor- It doesn't. I'm not as smart as I thought I was. I probably have to change jumpers or something else/? Can anyone help?

    Sorry, can't find anything. Your probably going to need to look for the computer manual to see if it lists the jumper settings or email HP. You will need to reset the multiplier and front side bus setting for the new processor.

    Not sure of the difference between the 333 and the 550

    I believe the 550 is 5.5 x 100

    but the 333 is probably 5 x 66
