I have a Compaq 5528 running at 75mHz right now. A 166mHz cpu to replace the 75 is being delivered. I'd like to know what the highest mHz is that I could've replaced the 75 with. Was it wise to order a 166?
Thanx for all your comments!
a 166 should work. A P200-classic is the highest that this system will support, because the motherboard supports a max of 66mhz Front side bus, and a max multiplier setting of 3.
most cost effective way is the way you did it.
Thanks a lot ... yeah, cheaper than buying a whole new system, though I would've done that if the design of this **** computer was different. The monitor and the system is one; monitor is attached. Thus I cannot just buy a $500 dollar system (w/out monitor) and keep the monitor from this one. Oh well.
You think it will be a noticable difference?
The system had 8MB RAM (built in), before I bought 32 more (16, 16, two slots only). So I have 40MB RAM now at 75 mHz (until the 166 gets delivered). The RAM upgrade reduces the HD noise and HD going crazy, which is noticable. But u think i should've bought more RAM, and stayed at 75, or was this a wise choice?
