I'm lookng to upgrde the CPU on my Toshiba Equium M50-192 (I believe
the motherboard is called PSM59E) from a Celeron M 370 to a Pentium M
770 or suchlike. However, the Pentium has a FSB of 533MHz while that of
the Celeron is 400MHz. Is this going to create a problem?
Thanks in advance, Robert

dont know what processor you have. If you have a celeron M you can probably upgrade to a pentium M without any problem. The ram you should check. I believe that motherboard will only support 1.5 gb. Any more you will be waisting your money.
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

The core2 duo chips will be a different socket to your celeron cpu so can do that unfortunately. You may be able to upgrade to a faster cpu of the same socket type but will probably need a bios update for it to run at proper speed.
Unfortunately laptops arent really designed to be upgraded at all bar extra ram/hd/dvdrw.
