If it were me... I'd shove that thing in the cupboard/fireplace and buy a cheap Athlon XP or something.

But if you want to make good use of it, best to check places that sell celerons, and look into your motherboard. It probably has a max cpu that it'll take.

Best bet is to go to Mobo Manufactuer & get the Spec's for that Particular Mobo, Check out the Maximum config for it as far as CPU goes. Ya ain't gonna do much with a Celeron though. Also check with Overclockers.com & see if they have any info on it.

the best thing is to start over, the chances are that the manufaturer like many businesses wanted to cut cost, so your motherboard is probably maxed out

I wouldnt say maxed. I had a al440lx motherboard that had a 766mhz celeron in it. How? I used a powerleap pro adapter so I could use socket 370 chips on the slot 1 motherboard. Worked great. Now I switched over to my new soyo board...
