I am trying to replace a Pentium2 233 processor with a P2 400 in an old but hardly used Dell GXa 233l EM+. If I swap the 233 processor for the 400 the disk drives whirr into life but nothing appears on the screen and it is not loading Windows. The processor speed in the BIOS has 2 settings...233 and compatible....it does not work even after trying both settings. Any ideas? Thanks.

You need the Manual for the Motherboard to set CPU Jumpers

No manual and cannot see any jumpers. I don't if it will take a 400....I was just hoping!!
