Download an aplication called CPU-Z, that should tell you what it is. I dont have a download link, try http://www.google.com, search for CPU-Z downloads, 1.27 is the latest version i think.

Are you talking about the CPU or Hard Drive? There's no such thing as a Pentium hard disk. If you're refering to the CPU, it takes a lot of brains and guts to offer a fake cpu, you can read this article for signs of a fake cpu (http://www.pcworld.com/news/article/0%2Caid%2C9734%2C00.asp). The program *plum* was refering to is available here, if they let you install it (http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php). As I'm not clear on what exactly it is you're talking about, I hope that helps.

Hello

I am sorry, it is the processor or Central Processing Unit (CPU).

I want your help to let me know whither seller is telling the truth or he is not.

Thanks

Have him click on Start, then on Run, and then type in DXDIAG. Click ok. That should load up the DirectX Diagnostics, and should show you what processor is installed. My Computer reports some of the new Pentium M processors (1.7GHz) as 598MHz processors, so you can't trust it. DXDIAG uses a more accurate method.

Once he runs that, have him send you a screenshot of the screen. You'll get the answer that you want.

p.s. I've never seen someone spoof a BIOS screen to say Pentium 4. If he knows how, he's wasting a lot of time to make a couple of bucks.
