I this the dealer is full of sh*t. Here is Compaq's page with Windows XP drivers for this model. Seems a little strange that they would have this if XP won't work on it.

I don't know your exact CPU specs but I've taken a single core Intel M processor 2.0 GHZ from a Dell 800 laptop and put it into my wife's X1000 and have had no problems running XP SP3. My own x1000 computer reports Intel Pentium M 1600MHZ as CPU type.

I want to upgrade my hpdv1000 pentium M processor whats the maximum upgrade allowed for this? i have upgraded it to 2gb ram from 512mb and 250gb hd from 60gb and its doin fine.


You should be able to upgrade the CPU, since it seems that the DV1000's motherboard uses a socket CPU design. But, obviously, HP would rather have you choose the CPU that you want from the beginning and stick with it.
The first thing to do is to check HP website to see what other configurations were/are sold for your model. If they sell it with faster CPUs then you can upgrade to one of them...

PLEASE NOTE:
In order for a particular processor to be compatible with a particular laptop:
(1) the processor must be physically compatible with the laptop socket, in your case I thing you have a Soket 479 processor
(2) the laptop chipset must support the processor.
(3) the chipset front side bus speed must match the processor front side bus speed, in your case 400Mhz.
(4) the laptop BIOS must support the processor.

So I listed here processors with FSB at 400Mhz, I gues that DV1000 as a 855GM Motherboard that supports only 400Mhz with Socket 479

Pentium M

Pentium M 1.6 1600 1024 400

Pentium M 735 1700 2048 400
Pentium M 745 1800 2048 400
Pentium M 755 2000 2048 400
Pentium M 765 2100 2048 400

Celeron 540 upgrade


Aspire 4315 Specifications Specifications
Part Number
Varies by specifications
Processor / Speed
Intel Celeron mobile processor 530/540/550 (1 MB L2 cache, 1.73/1.86/2 GHz, 533 MHz FSB), supporting Intel 64 architecture
if you have a 2 Ghz processor installed, you will have to replace the motherboard to go with a faster CPU.. which will be spendy..
Hope this helps

Upgrading my laptop's processor from celeron 540 to 560


Hi there,
Fan cooler for Celeron is usually the same for 540 and 560 Ghz, there should be no need to replace cooling system if you pass from 540 and 560
Whenever you operates on CPU and cooling system you need to monitor CPU temperature using Bios or a dedicated software. Here is a good software to check CPU temperature and Fan activity: SpeedFan Download.
Regarding the RAM, some seller like this one (UK seller).sells Trascends 2 GB modules, seller says they work on 4315, you can eventually ask them if there is any issue with bios version and if you need to upgrade bios.
Remember, CPU upgrade on a laptop is not a simple operation, be careful if you do it yourself, as it is easy to damage the laptop when taking it apart. Regarding RAM, main risk is incompatibility, If you live in UK the seller above guarantee compatibility with Acer 4315, double check by sending them an email before buying.
