Operating System Version:windows xp home
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:pentium 3 733 mhz
Error Messages:

I have been told that my CPU is not working properly. I need a new one. A cable was stopping the CPU fan from turning so it seems to have damaged the cpu some how. The result is my pc keeps rebooting after a very short space of time i.e. minutes, if i am lucky. The cpu i have is a Pentium 3 - 733mhz. I am told it is very hard, if not impossible to buy now, and that if i did find one i would need an adapter of some kind so that it would fit on to my motherboard, as they are made smaller now? The cpu i have is quite big, hence the need for an adapter? Ideally i would like to buy a faster cpu but i am totally confused as to what i need to buy or ask for? Do i have to buy a Pentium cpu? Do i have to buy some sort of adapter? If so what do i ask for? Where can i buy one from? Please advise me.

Thank you.

If you give us the make and model of your motherboard, I can look it up to see what it supports. The make and model can be found either on the motherboard manual or on the motherboard itself.
