Sir my inspiron laptop b130, intel pentium processor 1.70 mhz 598 mhz, it is suitable for upgration r not? ram 1gb. 40 gb hard disk.? I need 2 gb ram and 500gb usb hard disk for oracle applications...


Max RAM for that system is 2GB
http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Inspiron%20B130&Cat=RAM

The question is whether there are 500GB hdds for that system. The largest PATA HDD I found was 320 GB

and there is no guarantee the BIOS will recognise a HDD that large as PATA HDDs require BIOS support for the drive size where SATA HDDs will pretty much work.
My recommendation is to retire this system and BUY a new one.

How can I upgrade/improve the capabilities of my Inspiron 1200


The best and quickest improvement is to add more RAM. Add another 512 Mb of RAM. If you already have a 512 Mb of RAM module then add another 512 Mb RAM module. If your laptop has 2X256 Mb RAM modules then you need to remove these and insert 2X512 Mb RAM modules.
The reason why you have 504 Mb RAM is that the video card has grabbed 8Mb of RAM off the main memory.

I want to upgrade my inspiron 1100 processor


To be honest, the Inspiron 1100 is probably not worth the effort and cost to upgrade
The fast is proc is a 2.4 GHz Pentium 4 CPU, max ram 1GB of RAM,
You can find several dell portables below $500

Can the motherboard of this computer be upgraded? if so, what motherboards will fit in the case/are compatible? (xp)


The D610 is the improved model of the D600. The motherboard cannot be upgraded but it is possible to upgrade the RAM and processor.
However, aside from a ram upgrade and maybe a hard drive upgrade, I'd look at replacing the system as very quickly you lose cost effectiveness especially when a Inspiron 15 starts at $449 this week.

Im trying to fix up my wife's Dell Inspiron B130 instead of buying a new computer. what is the best processor, and video card upgrade i can do?


You don't want to upgrade the cpu. As for the video card it can't be changed as its build into the laptop motherboard.

I would highly recommend that you instead upgrade the ram memory on the laptop since it will give you a bigger performance increase than a new cpu or video card.

The machine only has 256MB of ram, get atleast 512MB or 1024 /1gb of ram and it will work much better.

Laptop running hot - Fan cycling on and off every 10-20 seconds


My guess is that CPU fan, it there is one, is not working properly and your computer is heating up. Is it turning off, too, occasionally after a period of time? Suggest a new CPU fan.
