I have an assembled machine with Intel Pentium 3 processor – 700 Mhz with Intel 810 motherboard, 40 GB hard drive. I have recently upgraded the physical memory from 64 MB to 192 MB. Though the processing speed has greatly improved, I have now started facing a problem of “hanging” system.
When I connect to the internet, the CPU usage dramatically increases from about 10-15% when offline to 100% with the applications like iexplore.exe (35-40%), explorer.exe (15-20%) and rundll32.exe (25-30%) eating up most of the CPU usage, even if I run just one application (say www.bbc.com) with Internet Explorer 7. This leads to the freezing of the system. I try and not to open too many applications but the system fails to sustain even a single application.
Things are cool when I am offline. Though I upgraded the RAM last month, things have started screwin’ up for the past 3-4 days. I have already tested for viruses and there ain’t any. I would really appreciate if anyone can help me get out to this problem. A million thanks! I would truly value your support.

Re: SYSTEM FREEZES WHEN CONNECTED TO INTERNET
You should try to test your memory (before windows boots.See download) to make sure the sticks are good. Download this. Next try using a program called Process Explorer to locate hanging modules of your computer. This will help you narrow it down.

Hello, The Intel® Desktop Board D845GVAD2 supports a single Pentium® 4
processor with a system bus frequency of 400 MHz or 533 MHz, or a single
Celeron® processor with a system bus frequency of 400 MHz.
So you can install upto 3.06 GHz
533 MHz(cache memory) processor and also update the ram 2 GB 400 mhz. Dont install Prescott processor. Hope it will help you.
Hi, This mother board will work if we have a compatible processor like Intel Core2 Duo, Intel Pentium D, Intel Pentium 4.But the processor should be greater than 2.99Ghz if the processor is less than this then it will to work.Dual core processor means there will be two processors working The detailed specifications of the new Intel D945GCCR Motherboard are:
Processor:Intel Core 2 Duo, Intel Pentium D, Intel Pentium 4 and Celeron D processors in the LGA775 package
The intel 810 motherboard will not support DDR2 memory. Intel Pentium 3 Socket 370 SDRam PC100 Ultra DMA100 Motherboard With Onboard Video / Sound & LAN! For Intel Pentium 3 Processors (CPU.
This board will only support SDRAM PC100
The chips to which you refer are incompatible with respect to the socket used for each as well as the fact that Core duo and Pentium 4 1.5 GHz chips are from separate generations, the latter having been obsolescent since 2003. Therefore, there is no single motherboard that supports both, and the Pentium 4, Socket 478 boards can be obtained from various aftermarket sources.
Here is an example of the kind of board you need for your Pentium 4.

While the board for your Core Duo is widely available now
i cannot give you a specific list of models but in general every pentium 3 cpu with a front side bus [FSB] frequency not greater then 133 mhz should work on that chipset. i also do not know where you could find a pentium 3 cpu for sale.
Every system needs a rock-solid foundation, and that's just what you get with this Gigabyte GA-8S649MF motherboard. It features Socket 775 compatibility and support for Intel Pentium 4 or Pentium Dual-Core processors with 800 MHz front side bus speeds. Two DIMM slots support up to 2 GB of DDR400 system memory.
your board is compatible with pentium 3 processors through the "coppermine" revision, the pentium 3 "tulatin is not supported" here is a list from wikipedia of the "coppermine" processors supported by your board.:
