Re: Powe Supply Problem Compaq

I did some research and the powersupply for that machine is a standard ATX powersupply, so yes just about any off the shelf power supply will fit and work. They may be overkill but that's fine.

HP sells the proper power supply for your machine for $98US as part number 176764-001 . There parts store is at

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, )

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,

List of Intel Pentium III Microprocessors,

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,

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.
