Upgrading is to replace a part or software with a newer and/or better one. You can just buy and install any component in a PC, laptops are a bit difficult to upgrade, but okay.

I think you are talking about overclocking. Upgrading can be done limitlessly until all the parts are working and compatible.

Overclocking is to configure a hardware component to make it work like a more expensive one. But it will cause it to overheat, and maybe even reboot erratically if not done correctly.

You will certainly get better performance, but you will instantly void the warranty on it and even reduce its life. Even, overclocking requires special and in most cases, very non user-friendly software. You may also need extremely good cooling systems (like good fans and heatsinks). Otherwise it may practically melt the chips.

On a desktop, it is easy as you can buy better fans and there is more space for water cooling systems.

Choose what you want to do.

Can I upgrade my DV7-2173cl processor to one that supports virtualization (vt-x or vt-d). Processor is: 2.00 GHz Intel Centrino 2 Processor Technology featuring Intel Core2 Duo Processor P7350

Would be quite challenging. From cost perspective it may be good to get a new laptop rather than trying to upgrade. Also the n1000c is rather old and compaq or HP doesnt support it. So perhaps you can consider investing in a new laptop :)

Too slow Compaq Evo Pentium 4 1.60 GHz 256 MB of RAM

Try re-install the operating system . If windows xp you wanted, try using the first/SP1.
Most of all older machine with low spec,mostly slow . but not that slow if choose the right system operation. i suggest try install windows 2000 for better performance.

How do i Speed up a Slow Compaq Evo N110?

Not much of a solution but with that type of computer, I'm assuming you might* have Windows 2000 MAYBE XP (hopefully now.) <---Having XP on it would make it run even slower due to the OS needing more resources.

Due to the specs, if you already have the max amount of ram allowed by this system. (576MB)

Then there is pretty much nothing you can do to speed it up faster than what its going at. You could ship it back to the manufacture and pay 5 times the cost to have it upgraded. Which could easily buy you a much better laptop. But that's just crazy :P

I am sorry other than that, there is pretty much no way to speed it up. Maybe putting Windows 95 might help...but whats the point of that eh?

    Ugrading to a newer system with higher performance specifications

    You can upgrade you memory to 2 x 512MB DDR PC2700 333MHz, and install pretty much any size 2.5" IDE hard drive you wish. Installing Vista will make this machine very very slow. Windows 7 would be better as it uses less resources. Ideally XP Pro would be better suited based on this boards specifications.

    Which is the fastest cpu i can mount on my 2.6 ghz celeron based acer travelmate 244lc notebook now? Is there any fastest celeron compatible now? Thanks in advance anyway. Mario

    2.6 Ghz is pretty fast already. If your computer is running your programs slow, you can upgrade your RAM to 2GB; this would speed it up allot.
