Default cpu upgrading problems

ok heres my problem .
i have a 667 mhz p3 socket 370 that works on this motherboard.
and a 733mhz thats a p3 same as the 667 , 733\256\133\1.65v and it will not work on the board im pretty sure the processor is good and im hoping yall will know cause the 667mhz is bad it just runs with it turns the monitor on and thats it.

i couldnt find no jumpers on the motherboard.
its a hp pavilian around 1999-2000 i hadnt any luck find out the model.

so you're saying one processor turns on the monitor and the other does nothing? sounds like a messed up motherboard to me
