    Greetings all,

    I am working on upgrading an old Presario 1230 that I inherited. Most
    upgrades are done, but I'm looking to put a new processor in. From my
    reading it looks like this MOBO has a super socket 7, and will accept
    the AMD K6-III+ 450 I'm looking at.

    Unfortunately, Compaq/HP have not been exactly forthcoming regarding
    the specs of the MOBO. I need to find detailed info about the MOBO,
    and specifically regarding the DIP switch settings appropriate for
    this processor.

    If anyone knows anything about this, please let me know!

    thanks for anything you can offer...

    Unfortunately it won't work. The 1230 ships with a MediaGX processor which
    also includes the graphics, memory and PCI controllers. The AMD chip has no
    such controllers. I'm afraid you are stuck with the Cyrix processor.
