I'm working on a friends W2646 computer..just checking it out since it was S-L-O-W!
I was wondering if or what CPU upgrades will work? I know it's a intel 845GV board but I'm not sure if it will take a 478 533 P4 hyperthreading CPU? Also is there ANY bios options? It just boots to a e symbol and then to XP? Never seen a computer do that before. No F2 or F12 or tab, delete nothing! I was going to reinstall XP for them since I found some nasty viruses and it was well used since they bought it...loaded with JUNK!! I've found some cheap P4's HT CPU's on ebay but I want to make sure they will work with this computer.I don;t have anymore boards laying around that will take a 478 and I don't want to waste there money if it don't. Any ideas ya'll?
