Default processor compatible?

I am wondering if a P4 3.2GHz w/HT will be compatible with my computer. My computer originally came with a P4 1.8GHzm and I wanted to upgrade it.

You need to determine what knind of board you have, some of those old P4 boards don't support cpu's that high. Find out the model of the board and let us know, or look for the manual on the manufactureres website.

If your machine had a 1.8ghz processor, odds are it does not support HT or 800FSB.

I think its
Manufacturer - ASUSTeK Computer INC.
Model - P4B266LM
Version - REV 1.xx
Socket Designation - mPGA 478
Architecture - 32-bit

For some reason it did say HT: Available - Disabled
I was using 3d mark to get this info

You may have to flash the BIOS.

The manual says it supports 400MHz FSB. So i dont think flashing the bios will help, but maybe i'm wrong.
