    I have changed Ram to the PC 100 256 Mhz, and it is very good for the Office applications as word and excel, but again i was assuming if I could put a P II 450 mhz, since I have one.

Hello
No you cant upgrade your processor.
also to change processor is very complicated in a old compaq.
and if you should manage to find a faster processor to your old compaq it not gonna make your laptop faster. the mother board and ram memory are still to old.

I forgot the password for my desktop computer compaq pentium 3


Hi, try pressing the ESC button or Del in some machines; do this during bootup and you can select start in safe mode. From here you can go to control panel and reset your password.
Hope this helps

Upgrade GX150 from P3 933mhz to something better


yes, to 1.1 gigs is not difficult, much higher than that and you would have to upgrade the BIOS software.

Upgrading my processor without changing my motherboard


A pentium 3 processor is probably in a Socket 370 socket.

None of the current processors would fit in this socket, so you would want to look at second-hand computer stores / markets or maybe in your local classifieds.

It might be worth checking what speed processors your motherboard can support up too before buying one.

Upgrade processor?


I read the thread over at computing.net just now. I'm having trouble locating a picture of the internals of the Deskpro 4000 online but I know Compaq did some pretty non-standard things back in the day.
Yea, try upgrading the processor - it's not going to cost much to try. Much as WebsWonder commented, I've been throwing out everything below 2ghz at work.
The 2mb S3 Graphics was great for its day. Look around on eBay and find a PCI interface card with 8 meg of ram or better. An ATI 7000 series would be good n cheap but even a Rage 128 would be an improvement over what you have now.
I honestly don't know if upgrading to 333 mhz is going to produce smooth video for you. I upgraded my son's Compaq Armada 1750 from a P-II 333 to a P-III 500, bumped the memory up to the max 312, and installed a 7200 rpm hard drive. It streams video just fine on XP Home.

Upgrade from 600 MHz to 1 GhZ


According to this review, you can upgrade as far as a 2 GHz P4-M at least; http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,669029,00.asp Other than that, i have been unable to find the details of your motherboard - if you can post the make and model (should be printed on it somewhere) then I would hope to find a more complete list of compatible and incompatible processors. Gateway themselves no longer offer online info or support for this model, but the motherboard details should enable me to find out what you need to know. Waiting for your post :)
