We're certain that it is an Asus board, as evidenced by the image above. What we need now is the model number of that board, and this is often screen printed somewhere on the board, typically around the memory sockets. Try and locate this number as this will provide the information needed (note that you might need to disconnect one or more cables to enable you to see it more clearly.

This is what it came with,

ARK | Intel® Pentium® D Processor 925 (4M Cache, 3.00 GHz, 800 MHz FSB)

and this is the list of Pentium D processors,

Again not worth the expense of trying to find one for it.

Is this the board you were planning on using for a new build? If so the extra cost of DDR2 also makes it not worthwhile. You would be far better served to save up and buy all current hardware than trying to resurrect/upgrade that one.

That motherboard has the 845P chipset on it and this is what Intel lists as processors compatible with it,

ARK | Intel® 945P Express Chipset (Intel® 82945P Memory Controller)

Only problem with looking for an upgraded CPU is HP has been known to lock the bios in such a way that different CPU's won't work with it.
