  1. Im trying to upgrade my brothers computer its pretty old 128mb RAM 1.2Ghz CPU 32mb GFX card.

    what i want to know is how can i find out the socket number of the processor that is currently inside the machine as i want to buy a new CPU but do not know what socket no. my mobo supports.

    is the an easy way to find out.

    P.S. my methods are limited as i have no internet connection at home so i cant do an online hardware scan or anything like that.

    any thoughts?

    You might be able to open the case and look at the motherboard for a model number and manufacturer. If you can find these, then we can look it up for you online and find out what cpus it supports.
