I have an PIII 800Mhz Hewlett Packard Vectra Model no. VL 400 800/128/10. I was thinking about upgrading the CPU, to around the 2.0Ghz mark. Would my machine take a P4 CPU? If not, what would be the limit? Also, is changing these things over simple - i.e like changing a graphics card - or a complex, shop job (I have about average know how - not an expert)? I also add that this current CPU has no fan but an array of cooling fins - does that matter?
Not in a tremendous rush here, but interested to test the waters.
