Upgrade pent 2 to pent 4

Question

I have an Intel Pentium 2, 233mhz processor. Two years ago, I upraded my motherboard from 60mhz to 100 mhz. Now I want to upgrade my cpu to an Intel Pentium 4, 1-1.6 gig. Can I just pop the old one out and put the new one in or is this a complicated procedure? I'm thinking of buying a cpu on Ubid.com and want to make sure what I get will work.

Thank you for being here,

Bob Hudson

Hi Bob,

The pent.2 is a slot 1 and the pent.4 is a socket 423 or the 478.The only way to do the upgrade is to upgrade the motherboard to match the socket for the pentium 4 Good luck
