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.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

sure, scan with antivirus first , then try , if not you need check the temperature , download everest ultimate and install, then you need to find the temperature , need say from 40 to 60 max , if is it over 60 the fan procesor maybe its off or bad
You should be able to upgrade the CPU, since it seems that the DV1000's motherboard uses a socket CPU design. But, obviously, HP would rather have you choose the CPU that you want from the beginning and stick with it. The first thing to do is to check HP website to see what other configurations were/are sold for
your model. If they sell it with faster CPUs then you can upgrade to
one of them...
PLEASE NOTE: In order for a particular processor to be compatible with a particular laptop: (1) the processor must be physically compatible with the laptop socket, in your case I thing you have a Soket 479 processor (2) the laptop chipset must support the processor. (3) the chipset front side bus speed must match the processor front side bus speed, in your case 400Mhz. (4) the laptop BIOS must support the processor.
So I listed here processors with FSB at 400Mhz, I gues that DV1000 as a 855GM Motherboard that supports only 400Mhz with Socket 479
Banias Pentium M 1.3 1300 1024 400 Pentium M 1.4 1400 1024 400 Pentium M 1.5 1500 1024 400 Pentium M 1.6 1600 1024 400 Pentium M 1.7 1700 1024 400
Dothan Pentium M 710 1400 2048 400 Pentium M 715 1500 2048 400 Pentium M 725 1600 2048 400 Pentium M 735 1700 2048 400 Pentium M 745 1800 2048 400 Pentium M 755 2000 2048 400 Pentium M 765 2100 2048 400

Upgrading processor is not likely a practical solution; find out the motherboard manufacturer and contact their site for more information. As to upgrading the motherboard, you'll have to know what kind/size of board your system will require. If you don't have lots of experience, this process is very risky.
Frankly, the cheapest way to upgrade your computer is to buy a used and working product with Windows XP already installed. Go to http://craigslist.com, select your city, and search for a brand name you trust. I've bought DOZENS of used computers very cheap that way (I'm writing this on a $2,200 Dell Latitude D620 I bought fiv months old for $500, who needed the cash!)
According to the manufacturer it will support P4/celeron 3.6Gz+ procesors. And memory should be Dual channel memory architecture
4 x 184-pin DIMM sockets support max. 4GB DDR 400/333 non-ECC memory. Hope this gets you up and running.
More important is the question of what processors can your motherboard handle. Certain motherboards accept certain sockets and speeds of processor, so you can choose from that to decide what you want to upgrade it with.
Yikes, a Pentium II?? Unfortunately it will definately be more economical to just replace the whole motherboard, or the whole computer! This motherboard will only support a range of P2 processors, an upgrade will cost several hundred dollars, close to the price of a brand new computer with a P4 in it.
