    I am just wondering if anyone knows where I can information about compatible processor upgrade for my Dell Dimension 2400 computer. It currently has an Intel Celeron 2.7 GHz.

    In technical specifications page your link took me to it has Pentium 4 listed under the microprocessor type. Does this mean that I would be able to upgrade my Celeron processor to a Pentium 4 one?

    As I stated, you SHOULD be able to run any of the processors listed next to Microprocessor Type. The board supports Pentium 4's, but you may possibly need to update your BIOS at Dell to use a Pentium 4.

    Also, some Pentium 4's have a greater TDP (Thermal Design Power) than the Celerons, so if you want to upgrade to a Pentium 4, I would advise you to check with Dell to see if you would need to change your processor cooler.

    Dell uses "passive" rather than "active" processor cooling, and only Dell can tell you if the cooling arrangement on your particular machine is sufficient for a Pentium 4 processor.
