I fried my motherboard on my other computer which had an Intel Celeron D 2.53 GHz.

I have an extra motherboard with an Intel Pentium 4 1.5 GHz processor

What would happen if i put the Celeron D in place of the P4?
-would it not match up with the chipset?
-would it work?
-or should i get a new motherboard that would fit the celeron d?...and if so which one?

The Intel Pentium 4 is a socket 423 processor, and the Intel Celeron D is a socket 478, it won't work.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
