Default New CPU for Packard Bell 2003

Hello again forums people, you were so great last time i have decided to return

I am just wondering about a CPU upgrade for my Packard Bell i-Media 825, which i purchased in 2003. Unfortunately i am finding it tough to get specifications from the web, and as the computer is not at my house atm I cannot find out what socket it uses, and what CPU's would be better than the current Pentium 4.

I have been looking at the Pentium D CPU but again not 100% sure its supported.

I have already upgraded to the maximum 2GB of ram, running Win XP.

Any help would be appreciated.

I agree lol, was pretty hard to find.

If you do find it just look at mobo specs and see what socket type it supports. Being from 2003, I think it might support AM2 or AM2 + no AM3 (if it's amd board.). And if it's intel, I'm an Intel noob so don't know anything about their older cpu's.
Gaming PC Build:

NZXT Phantom | Intel i5-3570k 3.4Ghz | Asus P8Z77-V | CoolerMaster V6 GT | Ripjaws
8GB 1600mhz | EVGA GTX 670 FTW 2GB | Corsair HX750 Watt |SB 1.5TBHDD
7200 RPM+WD 500GB 7200RPM | OCZ Vetex 3 120GB SSD | Lite-On 24x Reader/Writer/Burner Drive |
Razer Naga MMO Gaming Mouse | Razer Lycosa Gaming Mouse | Logitech G930 Gaming Headset

I would say if it's 2003 it wouldn't have an AM2, probably a socket 939
