I have a Compusa work series Celeron 560mhz system - is it possible to upgrade the processor to Penitum II. I hear that the chip set is different on the Penitum III and 4.

Plus I put a DVD burner in and hooked my DVD ROM drive together. and can't get the computer to see them. If I make the DVD burner the master it reads it as a CD drive. Is this because of the system I have or did I hook it up wrong.

I doubt that you can. I've heard that usually to save money, companies put in the cheapest motherboard that only supports what you have now and lower. For the price of a Pentium II, I see no reason to not try it.

I don't know about the DVD burner question except that when I got a DVD burner, the manual said make the DVD drive master and CD drive slave.

Hey Digital, go to my site, run the free program that analyzes your cpu. I can tell you if it is possible once you have information.
