There are a couple of socket 478 P4's it could be too. The Utility should help but if you have motherboard or make (Dell xxxx) info, that would be useful.

its a intel mobo with LGA775 Socket

very basic board..... 2 pci slots.... onboard graphics...
this is the mobo here
prob is it doesnt have any o/s installed.

or i would of tried cpuz ,

guess i could install xp and see.
or i guess other way is to take the hsf off
and see if it states on the top of the cpu.

ohh dear slight problem..

i decided to install xp on it to run cpuz to see if that will tell me more info about the cpu.

only prob is its a sata drive,
so i need the sata driver on a floppy
and the intel website doesnt have the drivers i need..

Whip off the heatsing and read what is on the processor (if you have the confidence to do it).

You shouldn't need the SATA driver unless you are using a RAID array?

That's what I thought but someone else on the forums said there is a limit to the size of SATA disk that you can use without special drivers.

I just created a 50GB partition on my disk & installed windows into that.

Later boards have the SATA drives mimic extra IDE drives in their bios but older boards needed the additional drivers.

If you search the Intel web site for the 5 digit ID you will get the full spec. In this case that's SL7J5.

IIRC, you can ID a Prescott by it's 1Mb cache as opposed to the 512Mb of the Northwood.

The fact that it is LGA775 tells you straight away it is Prescott except for early Extreme Edition chips. If it is 1Mb then it is not an EE. As stated above!:)
