K7 motherboard?

Hi I was wondering if you guys could help me with this one. At my old parents house, they had a computer they said I could have. They told me it had an AMD semoron processor on a k7 motherboard. That's all I know about it, so can you guys help me out and tell me if I upgrade the processor, which ones the motherboard will be able to handle? Thank you so much, I really appreciate it.

    Hi.

    The K7 is a old AMD CPU generation u can see all the information about that here.

    For the upgrade we need know the exact model of mobo that the rig has but I think that u won't have much options since is a old generation and the CPU available will be expensive.
  2. Thanks for the heads up!

    Ok so we found out the model is: M2N6B-LA
    They said it was a stock mobo from Compaq
    I looked it up and got this: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00906129&lc=en&cc=de&dlc=&product=3397528#N1000

    They say:
    Socket type: AM2
    TDP: 89 watt
    Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
    * Athlon 64 X2 with Dual Core technology up to 5600+ (up to 89 watt)
    * Athlon 64 less than 4000+
    * Sempron less than 4000+


    Is this correct?
    Oh and they told me it has an AMD Sempron CPU right now.
  3. Yeah, it's correct so u only can upgrade until the 5600+ 89W socket AM2
