Hi, since i cant find any information about this motherboard anywhere i will try posting a thread here. Dont really know what Evo model my Compaq is either, but my CPU is p4 2.22 Ghz 478 socket. My question is, i want to upgrade my CPU but i dont know what FSB this motherboard supports.
Would a 3Ghz 1MB cache 800 FSB 478 socket CPU fit this motherboard?

If you want upgrade you CPU, you must first know, specification of motherboard.
If the motherboard can´t see a new CPU, more exactly bios, you can try only one upgrade bios.
I give you a link for a manual and upgrade bios.
When you upgrade bios, try new CPU, if bios again don´t see a CPU, you can´t do anything about that.
FIRST....... Make sure you remove the stock thermal compund (pasty/sticky stuff) from the bottom of the heat sink as well as from the top of the cpu.........
Second APPLY some ARCTIC SILVER 5 compound-ust a thin coat of it over the top of the cpu......use an old credit card.....keep it ff the sides and bottom though......it's important not to use too much........one little tube will do anywhere from 3 to 5 CPUs...!!!
(stock thermal paste/thermal compunds......**** BADLY and can cause a cpu to burn up)
reseat (properly) the cpu and carefull
Now make sure you're 24 pin or 20+4Pin Power connectors are connected, as well as your fans..........disconnect all your SATA Devices, and remove everything but the video card , CPU, and fans.......Now it should post (if all your jumpers are set correctly...........
IF it still doesn't post, remove the video card and reboot.
If it doesn't beep at all......... You have one of 2 things.........A DEAD CPU, or a DEAD MOBO
Hi, to access the Bios Configuration Setup, On Any PC.
Depending On The Bios Manufacturer i.e Pheonix-AMI et,c.
You press F2 Or Delete Or Esc At The Initial System Boot-Up.
Power On. Press One of the designated Buttons immediately, after starting the computer.this should access the Computers Advanced Bios Settings.
** Please note:- Altering any settings in the bios, can cause undesireable effects to your computer**
Even failure To Start, Or Boot-Up.
From my own personnal experience, it is better to underclock a cpu rather than overclock it.
If a CPU Is designed To Run At a certain speed, running it above it,s designated speed cycle, can damage either the CPU Itself, the Memory Or Motherboard.
Probably wiser, to upgrade The CPU rather Than Overclock It.
Post the laptop model no and make so I can send you all the detail. you can download and install it. change the harddisk with greater space there shouldn't be any challenge on it. But you can't upgraid your cpu with duo core cpu.
anyway you post the detail of you model, I'll post the detail answer.
