I have an HP Vectra VE and I was upgrading it. It has a Pentium 2 hook up for the procesor but I have an adapter that lets me hook up a 370 Pentium 3 Celeron. I hooked up the 1.4 GHz procesor to the adpater and slid it into the Pentium 2 slot. Unfortuantly I don't see a place to hook up the fan power cord. Can anyone help me?

Re: HP Vectra has no fan hook up!
Most fans are either 5v or 12v and have a hook up on the motherboard. If not the fan should have a + and a - side (normaly red is + and black is - ). If push comes to shove use the same voltage lines off a hard drive power connector on the power supply if the motherboard doesn;t have the connector built in.

This laptop is too old to work with the latest operating system by Microsoft.Here are the requierments of Windows 7. If you want to run Windows 7 on your PC, here's what it takes:1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver This means that there is no chance to run this OS on your laptop.Sorry for the bad news!
you might check the jumper for processor settings, maybe the jumper is not set to celeron? if it is working using the intel pentium check the specification of the mother board if you can use the celeron processor.
Check the procesor fan, if it come loose the temperature rises and the computer shot down to protect the procesor..or probably the procesor lost the heat sink compound.That is a compound that comes over the back part of the procesor and help the procesor to transfer the heat to the heat sink of the procesor,The heat sink is that metallic piece that you see under the fan of the procesor..probably you need to put a cap of that heat sink compound..you can get it in any electronic shop that sales repair parts for technicians.
