If you know the speed of the processor e.g. 400, 450 or 500 and you can find the jumper settings printed on the mothrboard or in the board manual if you have one you can see if the board supports it. The jumpers are usually 2x, 3x, 3.5x etc and you multiply this by the bus speed which gives you the cpu speed. eg 100 mhz bus speed at 4.5x is the setting for a K62 450 processor. A lot of info can be found reading the older motheboards. hope this helps.

also the processor is a 450 and the bios says supports 150/166/200/233mhs

a little over a year ago I had an old system. Tell me here or by email exactly what you have and I think I might have some stuff for you gratis. You`ll just pay the postage snailmail. I will let you know what i`ve got first. How`s that for a Christmas offer?

many thanks but have all the parts i need to take it up to the maximum for the motherboard unless you have a socket 7 motherboard with a advanced graphic port as i have a pci at the moment

Sorry, handy4x, that is the one thing I don`t have. Never mind, Happy Christmas to you and yours.
