The system will boot normally, but some of the devices will not function properly.
The system will boot normally and all of the devices will work, but only for a limited time. After an hour or so, the system will spontaneously shut down.
The system will not boot or turn on at all.
The system will try to boot, but the overloaded power supply will fail, burning up delicate internal capacitors.
The CPU uses registers for temporary storage of internal commands and data.
Registers enable the CPU to control the address bus.
Registers determine the clock speed.
Registers enable the CPU to address RAM.

Replacing the CPU may not be the upgrade that is most cost effective or that has the strongest impact on your system?s performance.
If you have an AMD-compatible motherboard, you can install a Celeron processor.
As the size of the address bus increases, the amount of RAM the CPU can use decreases.
You can upgrade your CPU if you make sure that a new CPU will fit into the socket or slot on your motherboard.

The core speed of the RAM chips is faster.
DDR RAM uses 184-pin DIMMs and DDR2 uses 240-pin DIMMs.
DDR RAM is single-channel and DDR2 RAM is dual-channel.
The input/output speed of the RAM is faster.
Both use D-subminiature connectors
Both support hot-swapping devices
Both support dual monitors
Both are used for connecting keyboards
Your computer may slow down.
Your computer will work fine as long as it uses dual-channel architecture.
Your computer may lock up every few seconds or provide corrupted data.
Your computer will work fine if all the memory sticks are slower than the speed of the motherboard.
