Trying to get more life out of my system...
Feb 10, 2007

I have a Dell Dimension 4550 machine with a 2.4 Pentium 4 in it. I see that there are some pretty nice P4 chips with some more horsepower available for roughly $100. Any know if I can simply replace the processor in my machine for a top-end Pentium 4 chip, or will the motherboard's BIOS (or motherboard itself) get all upset over the move? (Dell hasn't been much help: they seem to want me to buy new. Can't imagine why.)

I've maxed out the memory in the machine long ago. I need more umph now while I wait for my 3rd party vendors to get their act together and get compatible with Vista so I can get a dream machine in 9-12 months.

Many thanks!
Pat
