    I have an older gateway P3 733 machine with a CPU voltage of 1.65. Can I use a P3 1GHZ CPU with a voltage of 1.7 as a swap ,or do I need to make adjustments for the voltage somehow. Plugged in 1GHZ CPU, doesn't work.Any and all ideas would be helpful. Thanx-Brad

    You might also want to check your multiplier, and FSB.

    Get a magnifying lens to carefully look at the mainboard. Most of the info you need is right there, more than you think at first glance. Google holds a wealth of info, and the Gateway Support website may have documentation for your pc.
