Not necessarily.Your CPU is a Pentium 4.
Well over a decade old, closer to 2 decades old.
There is no replacement CPU that will work with the motherboard you have, that will run Windows 10.
32bit, 64bit...makes no difference.
You need a whole new PC.
Or, buy a whole new refurb PC from a couple years ago, for $200.Not necessarily.
Say the Pentium 4 3.4ghz is this:
I that case he may have an option to upgrade to a Pentium D, Core 2 Duo, or possibly even a Core 2 Quad which would run Windows 10. The latter 2 would even offer decentish performance.
Thanks but I'm not sure how to determine the socket type.Hmm, most later Pentium 4 CPUs should be capable of running Windows 10. However, even if you did install Windows 10 on your system, a Pentium 4 is not powerful enough to make the experience speedy.
What is the make and model of this PC?
If this CPU is an older Pentium 4 using socket PGA478, your upgrade options are basically none.
If this CPU is a newer Pentium4 using socket LGA775, you may be able to upgrade to an Intel Core 2 CPU of some sort.
Be very careful about a refub system on fleabay, that supposedly includes a valid Windows OS and MS Office for that price.
