I am having problems using skype it uses all the system cache, so I am thinking of upgrading the processor-Intel Celeron D 356 3.33 GHZ,512 cache, 533 MHZ Bus speed- and I am not a gamer so I think I don't need a dual core, my concern is I don't know what to upgrade to as I don't know what motherboard I have. My Bios says GC11010M.15A.0030.2006.0707.2039. Any suggestions?

PC Specs?
Prebuilt- Brand Name & Model Number
Custom Built- Brand & Model of Mobo-CPU-RAM-Graphics-PSU.

If it is a prebuilt PC they can be very difficult to determine what CPU's they will accept as OEM PC's use Mobo's made for them.

O.K. my processor number and speed are not listed--does that mean I am dealing with the modified one? and what should I look for in order to replace the processor I was told my (100% cpu usage I get when I sign onto skype) is why I should get a new processor. Can you recommend one for my system.Also could it be my fan?

Try emailing Gateway support not sure if they will be able to tell you HP is pretty good in doing so Dell is not, Gateway any more since Acer bought them out is iffy.


Most of the time with OEM boards this can turn into a trial and error experiment.

But I think it's a pretty good bet a Pentium D 820 will work if you can find one.
