Hi cyberdyne!

Since your second image doesn't show the make or model # of your motherboard, I really can't tell you for sure yet. Please download and install Everest Home Edition, using the link in my signature. Then run a SYSTEM SCAN and save the report as a file and attach that FILE to your next post here.

Understandable. Anyways, I took a look at your spec's, and is THIS what your motherboard looks like? If so, it looks like it can support a Socket 478 processor up to 3.06GHz. You can check out the specifications of your board HERE.

Just make sure you don't get the mini Pentium 4 processor, because yours takes the bigger version of that chip.
