You will need to know first of all if your computer can handle a p3... you need to take into account what bus speed your mb can support and what cpu bus seed your processor is running at...

Re: Upgrading hp 6353 to a PIII 550

My bus speed is 100 mhz, and from what I read that should handle pIII up to 600mhz because of them being 2v. I looked at my processor in the computer now. It doesn't look like there is any jumpers to configure? Can I just pop the PIII 550 chip in and will it just auto configure or detect?
Thanks for the info :)
