Get a Pentium 4, shove it in your *** full of ****
and it will become a Socket 7 processor.

You can then insert it and it will run at Pentium 4 clockspeed
and FSB!

Try it!

Re: How can I overclock my 166mhz classic computer?

Yes i can help you but help yourself by buying a new one, you need to earn money to buy a new computer, as i have said before all product especially computer and new tech gadget are usually design to be used 4 to 10 years depending in the treatment usage and environment you live in. usually company this days dont give you a true quality product that will take longer than ten years because, their business will not profit. if they do so. and the technology innovation is improving both fast but the quality either low or fragile. not that durable and easily break or become defective. HOPE this HELP YOU.

Re: How can I overclock my 166mhz classic computer?

Overclocking is not really recommended to be done by normal users. For overclocking your computer, you should have extensive knowledge of the hardware of your computer.

Overclocking may result in a totally non-working computer, burnt up Processor and motherboard and the likes. Also, overclocking results in heating problems, so you need to have made the arrangements for taking care of this heat issue.

Basically overclocking means increasing the Clock Speed of your comuter. Suppose I say that I have a Pentium 4 - 2.4GHz computer, the 2.4GHz part is the clock speed, which is increase in overclocking. Surely the computers with higher clock speeds work faster but that comes at a price. A small mistake on your part and your computer is no more working.

There are various Forums and sites on the internet that discuss Overclocking and its intricacies in greater detail.
Here's a pointer:

PS: Search google for "overclocking" and you should get a lotta links to work with.

Is it possible to over clock amd phenom 8600b 2.30ghz triple core processor

Yes, every processor can be overclocked, but be very careful when overclocking processors. The increased heat can damage a processor and shorten it's life significantly. Ensure your processor does not get too hot during the oveclocking procedure. All overclocking should be done in small increments. The X3 8600 can be oveclocked to close to 2.7GHz safely with air cooling.
The best overclock is always through the motherboard. Depending on your BIOS you can raise the Front Side Bus (in small increments) in order to bump up the total frequency. If you have an unclocked processor, you can try to raise the multiplier. After every increase, you should stress test your computer using PRIME 95. If your computer locks up, drop down the clock speed and leave it there. Your computer should always be stable. You may have to raise the voltage of your processor to get to where you want. If you give the model of your motherboard, I can give you more detailed instructions.
Make sure you have CPU-Z ( - this will show you all the details of your processor. If you would like some more detail, check out this link: and feel free to message me. If you didn't understand some of the things in this post, I'd recommend not overclocking your PC - it can be dangerous and ruin your computer if you don't know what you are doing. Alex

How to overclock Intel Pentium Dual Core E2140 1.6 GHz processor

The following link will tell you the very simple way to overclock this processor. Half way down the page you will find the header "OVERCLOCKING"

"Since the architecture was designed for the 1066 MHz FSB, overclocking is as trivial as setting the FSB to 1066 MHz (266 MHz quad pumped). instantly get a 2132 MHz CPU with little increase in temperature."

Problem in overclocking my Processor.

1: You problem is your power supply, PSU. When you try to give more power to your CPU by overclocking it, it doesn't have enough wattage, or power, to get the CD drive, or your sound card to work. This is why the CD drive works again when the CPU isn't overclocked. So, in this case, to overclock your CPU, you would have to get more power to your system by getting a more powerful PSU, or one with more wattage. How much you can overclock your processor depends on a variety of different things. Your RAM, PSU, HDD, CD drive, etc. I would not go past about 3.4ghz with your processor, however, a "max overclock" is hard to determine.

2: The maximum temp for your processor is 70C, 158F. I would try to keep your temperatures under 60C to ensure your processor doesn't "die early" on you. The multiplier cannot be changed, only the FSB can be changed. You should be able to create a "profile" in bios and set it to your default so that it loads up automatically when you boot up. Make sure you find a stable configuration before you make a default profile.

Reviving the cpu

The boards I have seen were overclocked by changing the CPU speeds or the voltages going to the CPU. Change the setting back. When you get into the BIOS setup screen(A lot of them you get into by pressing the delete key when starting up) look for the "Default settings" After clicking on them,save the settings. Thsi wil bring you back to the  Safest board setting according to the board maker.

How do I overclock a Celeron 733mHz PGA370?

You can only overclock your computer if it has ATAPI BIOS. So get into BIOS upon bootup and if you have ATAPI then it will say it across the top. It will also have a section for the CPU with the current speed and an option to change it.

Overclock a black edition 5000 x2

pls let me remind you that overclocking voids your pc's will need to enhance the cooling solutions for the device you will overclock plus the cooling solutions for the CPU case, every time you overclock, more heat is produced by the device you are overclocking. also you have to make sure you have power headroom..., a higher wattage CPU power supply. plus the risk that you may toast your pc or lessen its usable life. overclocking is for advanced users so pls take extra caution if you will do it.. for guide and instructions pls click here and goodluck! >>>

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.
