Having problems with your Compaq PC Desktops ?

Need an up grade for the processor

\015 I'm trying to upgrade my father-in-laws compaq that's an antique. It's got a Mll 366 processor, socket 7. amd has a socket 7 as well as pentium but the amd is cheaper and I'm not putting any big money in it, he's giving it to his sister. The processor is a 250 MB and I wanted to get it higher if possible. Can you help???\015

Answers :

Well, there is not many places where you can buy a CPU for that motherboard. Also, you state that the current CPU is 250 MB but I think you mean the system memory is 256 MB. Looks like your CPU is 366 MHZ. You best bet is to look for a Pentium 4 motherboard/CPU and memory combo on ebay. You can probably find a P4 1.6 MHZ for barebones system for under $50.

I just bought a Sony Vaio at best buy and the ''geek squad'' wanted $40 to ''activate'' the second processor that supposedly doens't come active, they also were bragging that they would optimize the system but I just thought it sounded like a gimmick. The tech said I would find out how if I googled it but I haven't found it. Can anyone help?


They said what? Sounds like,"Come sit beside me for a while, said the Spider to the Fly".They're full of beans. Only if you have a computer that has TWO separate processors, that are in two processor sockets, is this done. ... PC Laptops
