Most laptops do not allow for cpu upgrade. For the type of performance you seek it would be best all the way around to check into a desktop that will meet your needs

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 :)

Which processor can I upgrade to?


Honestly, it is normally not worth it to upgrade the cpu on a laptop. Laptops are build to deal with a certain amount of heat and adding a faster cpu can cause the current cpu cooling fans to not get the job done anymore. You will seem instability in your system and could possibly damage it due to over heating.

With that said you would only be able to upgrade to a very slightly higher speed cpu and your money would be better spent else where. Some good ways to speed up a laptop are max out your memory or install a faster hard drive. For example if your current drive is a stock 5400rpm unit a 7200rpm drive would give you a nice boost. You could also look into a solid state option.

Both these upgrades will give your laptop a better boost without the hassle and risk of a cpu upgrade.

Need a new processor


http://www.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/inspn_e1405?c=us&cs=22&l=en&s=dfh&~section=specs#tabtop

Select Tech Specs:

Intel® CoreTM 2 Duo Processor T5500 (1.66GHz, 2MB L2 Cache, 667MHz FSB) Intel® CoreTM 2 Duo Processor T5600 (1.83GHz, 2MB L2 Cache, 667MHz FSB) Intel® CoreTM 2 Duo Processor T7200 (2GHz, 4MB L2 Cache, 667MHz FSB) Intel® CoreTM 2 Duo Processor T7400 (2.16GHz, 4MB L2 Cache, 667MHz FSB) You can order the processor from Dell sales and then take it to a local computer shop like Fry's. And they can can install it for a good price. I normally would not recommend replacing a laptop processor unless you have done it previously several times.

IBM ThinkPad R40 Intel Centrino Upgrade to Intel Core 2 Duo?


According to system specs your system is not compatible with the Core 2 Duo or Centrino Core 2 Duo. To upgrade to those chips you would need to replace the motherboard with one capable of running those chips. If you decided to do that you would almost surely need new RAM as newer boards use newer technology. By the time you did this the upgrade would not be cost effective. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

My hp compaq nc 6320 is running at 987mhz


I believe the Centrino Duo steps the processor down to save energy when unplugged. Try restarting the computer with it plugged in (if it isn't plugged in now). You might be able to change or disable this function in the power management program if this turns out to be the issue.
