are you sure it doesnt have jumpers or switches on the motherboard to change the multipliers?

its probably because it was an 'off the shelf' brand pc. they didnt need to worry about putting different cpu's in it

Is that a laptop or a desktop presario?

Its a desktop. Yeah from everything I've read they restricted bios settings to marginalize their support obligations.
There is actually no information I can find on my particular model either :(.
I have a compaq presario 6300ca.

Nevermind that guys, its a piece of junk anyways. If you want to help me, give me your impressions on these selections I have made on my next system.

10-Bay ATX Window Case w/450W PS prt #CP1809-2 (must purchase)

MSI K8N NeoPlatinum motherboard. prt#MS-7030:(must purchase)

Sempron 3100+ (must purchase) http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/Produc...9_11604,00.html (http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/ProductInformation/0,,30_118_11599_11604,00.html)

Creative soundblaster plus! 16 bit (salvaged)
Ati Radeon 9600xt (salvaged)
512+128=640 ddr sdram (salvaged)
Western digital HD (Salvaged)

I selected the msi k8n because it supports 64 bit tech. although only (754 pin)
The sempron 3100+ is very overclockable and cheap cheap cheap. Downside is the L2 cache is reduced(512 to 256), and 64 bit is unsupported.
Don't know if 450 is overkill in power dept. but it don't hurt to have a little extra no?
Also in the os dept. Is it legal to use my compaq version of windows on my new computer if I don't instal it on any other ones? If not, is linux a viable option? is it user friendly? Is it compatible with most software?

This will be my first attempt at building a computer, is this everything i need? any suggestions?
