Processor Upgrade Question

Hello,

My home PC is a Presario 7222 which is a P-100 system.  I keep reading about processor upgrades with 200MMX chips.  How can I find out if one of these upgrades will work in my unit.  I have found info on items from Evergreen and PNY Quick Chip.  All I have found for sure is that the Evergreen product is "not incompatible" with my computer. Any expert advice on this subject would be appreciated and I might have more questions if I decide to proceed.

Have you checked out the motherboard manual? I looked around and found that the 7 series presarios'  only went up to 133mhz so I beileve you will be limited to a pentium 133. Compaqs' are proprietary, that is way I shy away from them.

I looked at the compaq site and now see where the jumpers are located. Does it seem possible I will get any improved performance by swapping in one of the 200MMX upgrade chips I can now get for about $100.00?  Thanks for your help.

I would recommend the faster processor,and if you are still using the orignal 8MB of RAM I would recommend you upgrade to atleast 32MB of 60ns EDO memory.
