I was told that I could upgrade my 366mhz celeron to a 1.2ghz, but after installing the new chip all my pc does is power on for a few seconds and then switches off. Will I be able to get this to work on my pc and if so how do I go about getting it to work, please reply in simple language.

Celeron 1.2ghz can only works on 815ep b stepping chipsets motherboards.
You can only return the processor or buy a new motherboard.

Who in hell told you that?
The New Celeron 1.2 will never work in your motherboard.

No, the Celeron 1.2GHz is not even a Celeron, but a Tualatin PIII with a 100MHz bus. Tualatin's require a new version of the 815 chipset. YOu can probably support the Celeron 1100, but even if you can, it sucks for performance. Depending on your system, the PIII 933 looks much better. And on the cheap, the PIII 700 can be overclocked to 933.

What's the frequency, Kenneth?
