    I have a Compaq Presario 7588
    serial number: 8011dcw41090
    With Pentium III 550Mhz processor I hear that I can up grade the processor to 1100 Mhz but I still need some information a bout the processor like the type of socket and the cache memory and if I can just buy a processor and install it normally without contacting Compaq service

    You'd probably need a Socket 370. I don't think the Tualatin based P3's would work for you. They are the ones with 512k L2 cache. You'd need a regular Coppermine based P3. (256k L2)

    I don't actually know the answer to your question but, I do know of a utility that may help you. It is called AIDA32 and it is a tool which interrogates your system and produces full details of all the hardware and software installed.

    If you chose to download and install it, it should produce full details of your current CPU and motherboard and provide a link to the makers sites so that you can enquire about compatible upgrades.

    AIDA32 is free for personal use and is a 1.7MB download. Check out this website and see if you would like to try it. I have had it on my system for some time now and, since it is only a checking tool which does not amend any settings, I think it is fairly risk free although I am not an expert. Look here and see what you think;
