Hi, I tried upgrading my celeron 2.6 to a pentium 4 3ghz SL7E4 cpu. Physically the job was easy but on power up it wouldn't boot up, fan started, mobo light came on, no beep and blank screen. Changed back to old cpu and working as before.

Re: cpu upgrade wont happen
Ok i checked the ASUS website and looked up the CPU compatibility list for your board here: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us But unfortunately that particular CPU doesn’t seem to be supported. Must be something to do with the technology inside the CPU or the amount of L2 cache or something like that. (it would require some rather intensive research to find out exact reason why... And when searching for ASUS motherboards that are compatible with that CPU it comes up with this short list; AP120-E1 AP130-E1 PSCHL009 AP140R-E1 P4RD1-MX Did you clear the cmos when installing the new cpu before powering it up? i know the CPU you have now runs at 400FSB and the new one runs at 800FSB But that board supports both speeds so that shouldn’t be a problem. What type of RAM do you have ? maybe check owners manual for memory compatibility chart for new 800FSB CPU Have you tried the latest beta bios from ASUS site : I can not guarantee that it will work but it is worth a try. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?model=P4S800D-X%20&f_type=34&SLanguage=en-us NOTE: Updating the bios can be risky and should only be done to resolve compatibility issues or things like that (or to add CPU support) In the rare event of a power failure during bios update your motherboard could become permanently unusable. (Always use a brand new floppy and follow the instructions to the letter when updating system bios)

I have chatted to a guy Dinoop P from Samsung support.
He could only confirm that max mem was 8GB. He said CPI couldn't be upgraded, but referred me to buy the Repair Manual from their outlet, which is also known ad J&J
CPU world says " Q: Can I upgrade my Celeron P4600 microprocessor?
A: Probably yes. Processor compatibility is determined by your motherboard. Please check CPU-Upgrade.com resource for CPU support list for your board."
on Intel Celeron P4600 Mobile processor CP80617005307AB
and at the bottom of that page lists CPUs which physically fit into the motherboard, and are electrically compatible with the CPU socket. This does not mean they are compatible with the m/b (though it likely that some are). You might find a post in a forum somewhere )like the Samsung forum) describing a successfully upgraded CPU
You are basically limited to what was optional on the model. So you can only upgrade to one of the following cpus:
Intel Pentium M 745 (1.8-GHz) with 400-MHz front side bus (FSB) Intel Pentium M 735 (1.7-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB Intel Pentium M 725 (1.6-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB Intel Pentium M 710 TJ85 (1.4-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB; operates at a lower temperature than other processors Intel Celeron M 340 (1.5-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB Intel Celeron M 330 (1.4-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB
And you are limted to 2gb of ram max on this model.
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
Banias Pentium M 1.3 1300 1024 400 Pentium M 1.4 1400 1024 400 Pentium M 1.5 1500 1024 400 Pentium M 1.6 1600 1024 400 Pentium M 1.7 1700 1024 400

Here is some information may be useful to you.
Socket 1 169 pins 486 SX/DX
Socket 2 238 pins 486 SX/DX/DX2
Socket 3 237 pins 486 SX/DX/DX2/DX4
Socket 6 235 pins 486 DX4
Socket 4 273 pins Pentium 60 en 66MHz
Socket 5 320 pins Pentium 75 t/m 200MHz
Socket 7 321 pins Pentium, AMD K6/K6-2/K6-3, Cyrix M1/M2
Socket 8 387 pins Pentium Pro 150 - 200MHz
Slot 1 242 pins PII, PIII en Celeron
Slot 2 330 pins PII Xeon en P III Xeon
Socket 370 370 pins PIII, Celeron, Cyrix III
Socket 423/478 423/478 pins Pentium4
Socket 603 603 pins Pentium4 Xeon
PAC418 418 pins Intel Itanium
PAC611 611 pins Intel Itanium 2
Slot A 242 pins Athlon
Socket A 453 pins Athlon, Athlon XP, Athlon MP and Duron
Socket 754 754 pins AMD Athlon 64
Socket 940 940 pins AMD Opteron
Conclusion: You can not upgrade beacuse Armada M700 has a pentium III processor with 370 pins. So the Socket 478 pinned pentium is not suitable.
