The mobo will almost certainly be made by compaq themselves.

As for upgradabilty of CPU, I found out this much :

the 5WV282, 290, 293 & 295 machines all use a 1GHz CPU (don't know whether that is athlon or duron though).
Your computer (model 5WV252) uses the same motherboard as the ones listed above. Therefore, your board should take a 1 GHz CPU as well.

Possible though it might require a Bios flash in order to do so, but obviously don't flash it unless you are absolutely certain it is necessary.

I assume you have checked for any jumpers on the mobo for CPU clock settings & in the Bios?
