I'd like upgrade my AMD Athlon K7 500MHz - Model 1 - Slot A (AMD - K7500MTR51B). My motheboard is Compaq SPS-BD1394. Any suggestion? If you're using a proprietary system (which sure sounds like you are), updating to a newer CPU isn't really a recommended avenue. As much as it might pain you to endure the cost of building a new system , you may want to consider that avenue.
Don't lose hope...you can still upgrade your system. You just need to buy a new motherboard, CPU, RAM modules (memory), graphics adapter (if you get an AGP 3.0) and maybe a case and power supply too. You can still use your floppy drive, hard drive, cdrom drive, monitor, modem, network interface card, sound card, etc.
The thing with compaq or other proprietary systems is that they use components that are not industry standard and the documentation/information they provide for the components is very limited. So when you have to upgrade components within your PC, you just can't buy the replacement part from other vendors or use a standard component. You have to buy it from them which will be much much more expensive.
