Processor upgrade

I am building a new desktop and I got a motherboard from an old computer and I have no idea what kind of socket it accepts so is there a way to find out?

I have no idea what brand the motherboard is.

Search the mobo with a magnifying glass for any wording that might relate to make or brand. There should be a name some where on it. Can you take some pictures and post them, we might know just by looking at the board.

You sure it's not an "LE" at the end? - Motherboard Specifications, P5LP-LE (Leonite) | HP® Support

Motherboard Specifications, P5LP-LE (Leonite) | HP® Support

Quote:
Socket type: 775
Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
  • Core 2 Duo E6x00
  • Core 2 Duo E4x00
  • Pentium D 9x0 Dual Core
  • Pentium D 8xx Dual Core
  • Pentium 4 6x1 series
  • Celeron D 3xx series

Short of finding a used one or finding a site/store with old stock, not really worth building with as all the listed CPU's have long been discontinued.
