How do I find out what processor I have


Actually this isn't a question for me but for a friend.  He wants to know what type of cpu he has - Pentium II or III.  He has a Compaq Presario Model 5360 that he  purchased September 1999.  I thought system properties would tell him but it defines the computer in "family" terms rather than a specific processor.  Does Windows have a tool to define the processor in more detail?  The obvious answer is to check the shipping documents or user's guide that came with the computer but he lost all of that.

Thanks

According to:
www.compaq.com
The Quick Facts page for the Presario5360 states that the processor is the AMD K6-2 @ 450 MHz on a 100 MHz system bus. Obviously your friend needs some help. T

Dear tmj883,

I will pass that information on.  How can I get you 50 points for your time?
