I have replaced a PII 233 with a 266. When I power up I get a sound like a Police siren from the Motherboard speaker. Does this mean the Proc is goosed.

Check your cmos settings. Some motherboards with a Winbond chip for bios have
temp alarms. They can be reset to different temps.
I,ve found that that they're set too low or the wrong fan isused or the fan is not on. If you didn't
run it too long it should be ok. I don't know what
the PII should be, but AMD K6-2 runs about 123F. Good luck

It probably does. Most any board that supports a 233 should support the 266. I'd make sure that the processor is getting seated all the way. If it's an intel processor usually they are warrantied for about 5 years. You might be able to get a replacement if you call their customer support.
