I have an IBM Aptiva witha 450mhz k6 processor, can I upgrade this, IBM say they do not support processor upgrades on this machine, does this mean it cannot be upgraded.

The problem is that your motherboard only supports processors up to 500mhz . to upgrade to a faster cpu you would need to get a new motherboard too. You would also need to get a new case with a 300w powerpack and a better quality fan and heatsink. On top of that you would probably need DDR Ram to go on your new mainboard
