How much RAM does it have? Some had a default of 64mb, which is a bigger hinderance than the CPU.

For a faster processor, the best thing would be a K6-2+ or K6-3+ (note the plus). I don't know whether those would be compatible with your computer, but I don't see why not. Compaq's website is not much help.
