The processor locks into this other chip thing and then the chip thing locks into the motherboard. I don't remember the speed, but it's a Celeron processor from a Compaq computer that's probably 4-5 years old.
Anybody know what this is?
I'll put some pictures on here.
Thanks, Justen

The board that the cpu socket is mounted on looks like a socket adapter. My guess would be that the motherboard originally was a 423pin socket (very early P4) & the adapter converts it to a 478pin socket.
