I pretty sure I'm spinning my wheels on this one, a year or so ago I got a deal on a pavilion model xe736, 600 Celeron with an intel chipset. Despite my dislike for intergrated systems , it was a deal I couldn.t pass up.
Celeron Chips have dropped a lot in price and I'm considerating putting in a 900 Celeron, I'm pretty sure I can upgrade it to a celeron 733, but thats not enough to warrent the cost. Can I upgrade to the 900, & if so what di I need to do.

thanks in advance for looking into it

Thanks for the site, I'll give it a try. HP had a bios upgrade dated 4/01, HP isn't rally clear on what it does CPU wise. The board is a Cognac as best as I can tell. It has a few (very few) unmarked jumps, Boy I hate OEM boards. I'll give the site a shot, but I won't expect much, maybe one of these days I'll fall into a Celeron 733, I wonder if this board would accept a pentium III?

Thanks again,

Can someone answer the last part of the thread?

Celeron 600 and 633 run at 66 and Pentium 3 runs at the least of 100/133. Is that compatible at all?


It would be nice to know.

Thanks
