If I put this processor in this motherboard, what will happen?

I have a socket 775 motherboard back from the late pentium 4 days, so it most likely will not work with a modern socket 775 processor. But, I'm thinking it's worth a shot, unless it shows some signs of risks.
I have a pentium dual core e2200 laying around, and I'm in the mood for an experiment, mostly just to tell if it would be feasible to put a new cpu in a 5 year old motherboard. If I were to put the e2200 in the pentium 4 motherboard, and it rejects it, what would most likely happen? Will there be damage to the motherboard or the CPU, or would it just not boot?

most likely it wouldn't boot if it cant use it and nothing else will happen.

Whats your motherboard? If you dont know, you can download cpu-z and head to "mainboard".

If we can get your motherboard, we can check what cpus can work on it.

It's a Dell OKF623 with a pentium 4 630 chip in there. I really don't expect for anything other that a low end pentium D to work in there, I'm just wondering if it's okay to try.

From what i could find, your assumption was correct. only pentium d's ands 4 can run on it.

So, is it even worth trying to put the processor in to test it?
