You are probably looking at changing a few other things as well

The processor you can use is determined by the motherboard

:tazz: I don't know crap about that stuff. How do I find out if my motherboard can handle it?

Download Everest Home Edition

Run it, click + next to computer then summary, look on right for motherboard

Visit the manufacturer's site to get the specifications of the motherboard, or post the make and model here

As you can see Wannabe1 has replied and Fenor asked this

Is the computer a pre-built? Like a Dell, Gateway, eMachines, etc...?? If so ask for the make and model. That will help alot in determining what board is in there because I have no clue from the info provided. Maybe have him post a full report from Everest that will show us the north/south bridges and such and from there can determine what the board is. Also ask if he has had someone else add or change anything to the machine since he bought it.

The only change I have had in my computer since it was bought was more memory and a new video card.

Make and the model? Sorry if it sounds stupid, but how do I find this? Maybe the book that came with the computer??

Hi BillyBobJunior!

No, you would find this on the computer itself. It will say the name somewhere on the front as well as the model number. Like Dell Dimension 2400, Compaq Presario 5000, etc...

It's not a sticker, it will be part of the case itself. You can't miss the writing.

No, that's not it either. Could you please just run another scan with Everest, but this time post the ENTIRE RESULTS of the scan and post it as an attachment here.
