This is the guide to replace the cpu

it appears there were two different motherboards used in that computer so you need to open the case and read the model number....

not all cpu's will work... you need the motherboard manual to see if the p4 cpu is compatable

The P4 Connector came off the CD Rom on a Dell 531s desk top computer


Unplug PC, then re-attach. Power connectors are interchangeable as long as they fit. Many power supply's don't even mark them. Meaning you can use anyone. Including any spares for later expansion.

Hey,

here is a guide on how to replace the prosessor
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ws340/en/ug/prsr.htm#1151436

SOCKET 478 - you can check this by taking the fan off from the prosessor, the motherboard prosessor socket will have the number written on it.


Thanks and good luck.

Motherboard changover


It seem that everything is working except for the monitor or perhaps the on board video.

I would try a different monitor, if that does not resolve the issue. I would try installing a new video card. If you do try this, you will need to disable the on board video through the BIOS at start up.

I hope this helps,

Eric

Motherboard


2.2Ghz should be the fastest for your motherboard, also the cpus FSB is MAX 400Mhz

the socket is S478

only old cpus work in your motherboard new and currently being sold, core 2 duo family prosessors wont work. they all have fsb 667 or higher and your motherboard only supports up to 400fsb

here is the best cpu for your pc

I would recommend a whole new system.
