It is possible to get a new cpu but you would need to get a new motherboard if you want a pentium or athlon processor. I would suggest building a new PC if you really want proformance.
Celeron processors are really just used for surfing the internet and checking your e-mail etc not playing recent games or doing anything to graphical.

What kind of budget do you have?

It's not only your budget (IMO) that you should consider - but also where you want to be in a couple of years with your system.
System obsolescence is a fact of life these days. If you want to ensure good performance with new software then you'll have to invest more. Yesterday I was talking with a guy who wanted to upgrade his RAM and video card. But he was so near the point (expense wise) that it was actually cheaper to buy a new system than to fix and upgrade the old one.

Just looked up the SR1010 at hp.com
here is a link to the motherboard layout: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...mp;lang=en#N852
your board is capable of handling up to a P4, (Socket 478 for Intel P4 Williamette and Northwood processors) up to 2.8 GHZ
up to two gig of ram, but no AGP or PCIE video cards
the power supply is only rated for 250w I would recommend a new computer.
Just to upgrade this one, you would have to replace the power supply, motherboard, processor and ram, and purchase a good video card, and the windows that came withe the compaq cannot be re installed from the recovery partition when you change to a different Motherboard.
