Sorry, just re-read what I was looking at. The BIOS Ident will be hidden if there is a splash screen of any sort. To be honest, the easiest way of identifiying a motherboard is to read the identity number from the mobo itself. Its im-printed usually in the middle of the board.

I agree that there is almost no hope of a 600-700MHz processor going onto a motherboard of that age, even if the socket is the same. To be honest, I would just upgrade the motherboard at the same time. You can get one fairly cheep now (I'm just ordering one at 50) so if you can, just get a faster processor and a motherboard to match, even if just for the extra memory bandwidth and controller speeds.

And if you think your processor speed is crap at the mo, check out my specs down below! You'll see why I'm upgrading!

Why don't you use Sandra I mentioned above to get the info on your motherboard & system? It will tell you a lot.

Yeah, you can turn off the PC, take off the keyboard and restart the PC. When it boots up, it will get stuck at the 1st screen because it can't find the keyboard. But this will give you a chance to get the # that can be used to identify the mobo & BIOS. But why do this way while Sandra can give you more info the easier way?

I believe your mobo has a slot 1 P2 CPU. You can find a 450MHz slot1 P2 CPU to replace your 266MHz. Since I'm in the States, I can't recommend any store to you. I found many 450MHz (and slower) Slot1 P2's here
