    First you need to supply the exact cpu AND the motherboard it is going into. I doubt that a board that supports a 1.5gig cpu would support a 3.4 cpu, however it might.

    You need to tell us the exact model of cpu AND the exact make and model of motherboard you are attempting to use.
    Again I doubt that a board that supports a 1.5 cpu will support a 3.4 cpu.

    Run this small free program and post what it states under the cpu tab and under the mainboard tab. Then post a link to the new cpu you want to try and install. http://www.cpuid.org/cpuz.php
