    What make is the board? Look for the manual on the maker's site.

    At best you could probably upgrade to a 1GHz Pentium 3 (based on a Coppermine core). Faster Pentium 3s & Celerons that used that form factor are probably based on the Tualatin core & not compatible with your motherboard.

    It might be easier & actualy cheaper to start from scratch with a new system.

    Im 90% sure the manufacturer is Intel, I might be wrong. Ive used a few applications to try and find out who the manufacturer is but none of them have found out.
