Hi i was just wondering if i could upgrade my current processor (Intel Celeron D - 3.46GHz - Single Core) to a Celeron Dual Core or even a Pentium Dual Core?

My motherboard model is a Foxconn N15235.

Also I am Running Windows Vista Basic but I'm going to upgrade to Vista Premium.

PC Specs:
1Gb DDR2 RAM - 533MHz (Going to upgrade to 2Gb)
ATi Radeon Sapphire graphics HD 3450 - 512Mb
160Gb HDD

Thanks in advance !!

Have you got a link to the motherboard manufacturer and this model? I've been unable to find one. They should be able to tell you the CPU's that will work (probably with a BIOS update though).

It's difficult to tell without the manufacturers advice.

you need to find the correct model of your motherboard and download the manual for it.

Jack, been there, done that with no luck

I know the manufacturers website:

but I just can't seem to find my motherboard on there.

Are you sure about the model number, is there a label on the board?

Yeah I'm positive on the model number, I've fitted a new graphics card and another 512Mb of RAM since I 1st bought it and I did that by googling the motherboard number, I just can't seem to find what processors it can take.

I think you asked this question before on here a couple of days ago and I found the Foxconn site then but the model numbers for support bear no resemblance to the one you quote (even in the discontinued products)

Can you download and run CPUZ to see what that says click here

It says under model number:

P4M900-8237A

I searched for the model number and it come up with 3 possible motherboards:

They all look exactly like my motherboard but not sure if they are.
