Upgrading the CPU in a notebook is a bad idea.

Even if you get a compatible CPU, a faster processor means more heat, and notebooks are not design to handle it. You would risk major damage.

If you want to make it faster, try increasing the memory.


Good luck!

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

Passport 2068 only accepts WiFi card in startup.


When your card is inserted and after few minutes to activate Sw, right click on wireless card icon and try repair.
It's normally working for me 3 out of 5.
Sometime I have to retry.

Try using nLite or XPLite to slim down your XP footprint. Turn off all the GUI chrome and go back to the Windows Classic theme. You should have no trouble getting XP lean and mean enough to run happily in 256MB, even with large office apps. If that fails, consider 2k. Reason being, most modern hardware doesn't come with 98 drivers, but 2k is similar enough to XP that most drivers will work with both. Also, there are no security updates being provided for 98 any more. If you're still dead-set on 98 as the solution, please clarify your request for "DLLs".
