Compaq / 5bw130

Specs: Windows XP

I have an old Compaq Presario 5BW130 and i would like to upgrade it. I have already upgraded its RAM from 64mb to its maximum of 512mb and now i would like to upgrade the CPU. The only problem is that i have no idea what processors are compatible with this pc.

I would also like to say that I understand that this pc is very old and that it would be a lot easier to just buy a newer and more modern one but i already have two newer pcs. I am just upgrading this one for the fun of it.

Here are the current system specs:

Motherboard: 191767-003 COMPAQ PRESARIO 5BW130 SYSTEM BOARD
CPU: Intel Celeron processor 667 MHz
System Bus: 66 MHz system bus
Cache :128KB L2 Pipeline Burst Cache
System Memory: 512 MB PC100 SDRAM
Hard Drive Capacity : 15 GB
Hard Drive Interface: DMA/ATA-66 (Ultra)

Here is the link to a pic of the motherboard just in case:

Any help is highly appreciated.
Thanks In Advance!
