    I'm running a P4 in my current rig. Is there a way other than reading the part # off of the motherboard to find out what "socket" my motherboard is? Or at least a way to find out the model of the motherboard through windows or something? There is too much stuff in the way of the motherboard to read the numbers on it. Thx.

    go to google and download "everest home edition" its out of production but u should be able to find a download link. this program gives you tons of info on every aspect of yer system, including motherboard model and socket class.

    If Winblows:
    Start > Settings > Control Panel > System

    Look in the tab marked "General".
    It will tell you what your processor is, exactly.

    Then google that processor, and it will tell you the socket type.

    P4, prolly socket 478

    If you're looking to swap processors, there's other things to consider, like whether your chipset will support a different processor.

    when you reboot it should tell you what model motherboard you have. Find it, go to the manufacturers website and check under cpu support.
