Well, there is not many places where you can buy a CPU for that motherboard. Also, you state that the current CPU is 250 MB but I think you mean the system memory is 256 MB. Looks like your CPU is 366 MHZ. You best bet is to look for a Pentium 4 motherboard/CPU and memory combo on ebay. You can probably find a P4 1.6 MHZ for barebones system for under $50.

Hi sir/mam, i have a gigabyte motherboard 7vm333m-rz n now i m presently in tis board AMD processor is running... can i change the processor by pentium 3 instead of AMD.


-> NO

It has a Socket 462 processor socket. (Also known as Socket A,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_A )

This is strictly for AMD processors ONLY, and only for AMD processors that use this processor socket.

An Intel Pentium III processor, that is not a Slot 1 processor, uses a Socket 370,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_370

List of Intel Pentium III Microprocessors,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_III_microprocessors#.22Coppermine.22_.28180_nm.29

Scroll down also.

{ If it states Slot 1 AND Socket 370, it means there are processors Intel made, that were that model, but could have been a Slot 1 processor, or Socket 370 processor.

Using the first example;
Pentium III 500E,

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium-III/index.html

The first example on top, is an Intel Slot 1 processor style.
The rest of them on down are Socket 370 processors, EXCEPT for the Pentium III Xeon. (Zee-On)
It is a Slot 1 processor.

I would like to know my motherboards name,model, and are there any upgradeable processors for it? Type is a Compaq 5008US


It's Intel® Desktop Board CA810E and the only processors to which you could upgrade to are second generation Pentium III Coppermine, up to 1.2GHz, that you will find only at auction sites - out of production since 2001. Practically it's an antiquity, not worth upgrading.

SIMD instruction set, featured a larger 64 KiB Level 1 cache (32 KiB instruction and 32 KiB data), and an upgraded system-bus interface called Super Socket 7, which was backward compatible with older Socket 7 motherboards. It was manufactured using a 0.25 micrometre process, ran at 2.2 volts, and had 9.3 million transistors.

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.

Upgrading


To upgrade from pentium 3 to P4 you have to change alot of the hardware.

You need a NEW P4 Socket mPGA 475 Motherboard.
New DDR RAM
New 478 PIN Processor.

You can use the old CD rom and Hard drive and any other PCI card but You Need the Mentioned Hardware to Upgarde.

CPU Upgrade-Which Sockel?


Here is some information may be useful to you. Intel processors Socket 1 169 pins 486 SX/DX Socket 2 238 pins 486 SX/DX/DX2 Socket 3 237 pins 486 SX/DX/DX2/DX4 Socket 6 235 pins 486 DX4 Socket 4 273 pins Pentium 60 en 66MHz Socket 5 320 pins Pentium 75 t/m 200MHz Socket 7 321 pins Pentium, AMD K6/K6-2/K6-3, Cyrix M1/M2 Socket 8 387 pins Pentium Pro 150 - 200MHz Slot 1 242 pins PII, PIII en Celeron Slot 2 330 pins PII Xeon en P III Xeon Socket 370 370 pins PIII, Celeron, Cyrix III Socket 423/478 423/478 pins Pentium4 Socket 603 603 pins Pentium4 Xeon PAC418 418 pins Intel Itanium PAC611 611 pins Intel Itanium 2 AMD processors Slot A 242 pins Athlon Socket A 453 pins Athlon, Athlon XP, Athlon MP and Duron Socket 754 754 pins AMD Athlon 64 Socket 940 940 pins AMD Opteron Conclusion: You can not upgrade beacuse Armada M700 has a pentium III processor with 370 pins. So the Socket 478 pinned pentium is not suitable. Advise: Try to exchange it with a new laptop or buy a used laptop for suitabl configuration
