G614J processor upgrade


Hi there
the G614J is a Intel Celeron 450. which is a Socket LGA755 (this is the connector on the motherboard for a cpu, this is a deciding factor on what kind of cpu can be installed.)
Currently the LGA 755 socket is history, there are no cpus sold as NEW in the market that I can see, your only option is 2nd hand, like EBAY.com
I found a total of 7 cpus in ebay.
In my honest professional opinion it is not worth it to attempt to upgrade the cpu on your computer, consider buying a newer computer, used, or new.
I mean this stuff is trash,
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lot-of-11-CPU-Intel-Pentium-4-2-8Ghz-521-LGA755-1M-800Mhz-SL9CG-/360517310223?pt=CPUs&hash=item53f081970f



that guy is selling 11 cpus for LGA775 socket for 50$ its few $ for one cpu.


Your current cpu has a front bus of 800MHZ you don't want to get anything lower than that, that is the only deal I found in ebay that wasn't slower than your current cpu.


I'd recommend you resell your old computer as is on ebay or similar and purchase a newer system.

Turned computer on and monitor instantly goes to sleep,also cant turn off the computer using button.have to use switch on power supply


Try this, unplug everything from the other board except the main hard drive, power connections, and monitor. if it does not come up, remove ram cards, leaving one stick. try again, if it is still bad swap ram sticks. If after all of this it still does not work you have a bad motherboard or processor

Upgrade


In order to upgrade processors you will need a new mortherboard (if you want to use a core2duo). If your running a computer like that you will probably need a new case, memory, and an adequate power supply to run it and maybe another fan if your running a lot of stuff in there. You may need a new video card as well.

You could check at some used computer stores and see if you can upgrade your celeron processor to something faster. Compaqs are know to be trouble when you try to upgrade them.
