"My computer/ properties" indicates - GenuineIntel x86 family 6 model 8 stepping 10.

I've googled for info, and I think this means that the processor is either pentium3 800M or 1G.
Could anyone confirm, or put me right please.
Many thanks.

And if that isn't enough, there's always CPU-Z click here

Sorry, I should have made it clearer. The cpu in question is in an offline machine running 98se - the compaq mentioned in previous threads.

I have no method of transferring info to the compaq from this online machine which is running xp, other than writing it to cd - no floppy drive on either m/c.

I have exactly the same line in System Information but it adds 997MHz.

It's a Socket 370 1GB PentiumIII CPU in my case.

So write CPU-Z (CPUid) to disk and run it, greybeard. Or have you tried, Start > Run, type 'dxdiag' (without the quotes) and click OK and see what it says on the "System" tab?

You could always take it out and look on the CPU itself,there should be a code number to identify it.

Thanks all. I'll assume I've got a1G until I find my way in and inspect the chip itself.
