I have a computer that has a Celeron processor, I would like to know how to change it to let's say a Pentium 4. Is it a simple or complex job?

depends on the board, if its a newer celeron. also you will need to know what fsb your board supports, socket, several other things. otherwise, the physical part of changing it is rather easy.

You really need to get that information from either the board maker or if it's a name brand computer the machine maker. Usually it will be in the manual which is most of the time a PDF. The actual change is usually pretty simple but knowing what processor works is more complicated.

Download CPU-Z (here: http://www.cpuid.com.../cpu-z-139.zip) < that's a direct link to the .zip.

Upon running it (I'd give you step by step but I have some problems with my computer which doesn't allow me to run it).

It's pretty straight forward, but just choose to make a .htm dump and upload it as an attachment with your next post. From there we can help you find out what possible upgrade P4s your PC can take.
