Question about IBM NetVista PC Desktop
First for you to know if you really need to upgrade Select "Ctrl + Alt + Del.
It will display the Task Manager. Then click "Performance"
Just check the CPU usage.
Go back and do your normal job. Run programmes as you used to do, work as you use too.
Then check the Task Manager again if it goes anywhere near 90%- 100% you will need to upgrade.
Go back to your "Desktop" and Right Click the "My Computer" Icon and click "Properties".
From there you will see the type of Processor you have on your PC, its capacity and the RAM as well.

Don't just go and buy any Processor or else it may not be able to serve the purpose you needed.
You have to inquire to know the right Processor to upgrade with.

My first bet would be to download the belarc advisor ( Google it) it's free and it would tell you what you want to know about your pc.
Secondly, then go to the manufacturer's website for your motherboard. There you should be able to find information as to the upgrade path that your motherboard and your BIOS in particular can support.
Finally, remember Google is your friend. You can get alot of info that way.
Good luck, and I hope you find what you need. It may take a little bit of digging, but the knowledge you gain will be well worth it.
