Hello. My question from a couple of days got answered, but it looks like with a wrong answer. The question’s title is:

*** Looking for Intel 3.33 GHz Core 2 Duo E8600
I have:
Dell Inspiron 518 (Desktop)
Mainboard: Dell 0K068D
Chipset: Intel P31/P35
Processor: Intel Pentium E2200 @ 2200 MHz ***
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As I was advised, I bought an Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 Wolfdale 2.8GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor Model BX80571E7400, but the computer sees it as my old processor Intel Pentium E2200. I'm wondering what is up here? This is the right model of a processor I need, right? Why does it still see it as the same Pentium is installed? Do I need to install some BIOS update maybe? What is the problem here? I was able to talk NEWEGG in to giving me a refund, I sent it back.
