My computer is really slow going into differnt sites....the compressor fan is slow to start up...had my computer stripped down and tuned up, but it's still slow...they said the cpu is showing its age,...

Your computer going slow could be for the following reasons: 1 Not enough RAM - remove unwanted files by cleaning the disc. Also defragment the computer. Increase the RAM 2 Virus - remove the virus 3 If you do the above you will see the improvement and no need to have a new cpu

Hello, i want to change CPU in my Toshiba L100-119[CeleronM-380(Dothan1.6)] to better one. I have problems when finding maxium CPU approved for L100 mainboard. Thank YOU for an answer.

it only supports up to a 533mhz front side bus(fsb)
since you have a dothan(newer) just look for a p4m (m for mobile) processor with a 533fsb and probably without HT and under 2.8ghz to be safe (i cant say a 2.8 will work or not but at least you have a direction)

btw any penium 4 m is faster than the celeron you have
another thing heat will be higher, clear dust and use tiny amount of arctic silver 5
and battery time will be down

Toshiba a30-931 what is largest posible cpu

Franky_J knows nothing you could go for a P4 2.8 cpu which would work much better than the Celeron in fack any P4 over 2.0 would out perform the celeron if you want speed get rid of the Celeron and get a P4 it should take up to an 3.2 P4 chip.

Franky if you dont understand cpu's then you shouldn't really be answering this question in the cpu world a 2.8 ghz cpu is not always a 2.8ghz cpu for instance this one has half the cash of a P4 cpu meaning it can only do half the work at the same time so in P4 terms this is only a 1.8 P4 equivilent so a 2.8 P4 will be a big improvement.

Everythimg is slow

Beatriceccc: This can frequently happen when Vista runs on a computer that's hardware just can't keep up with it. I'd like to have you try this for me. Click on your start menu, then "Right click" on "computer" in the left column.This will take you to a page, that will give you something called the Microsoft Rating. If you can comment back to this post with the details of the overall rating, as well as the specific categories, we'll be able to provide better assistance.
Was this computer pre-installed with vista? or did you upgrade from XP? What is the model number of your machine? All of this will help us to help you.

Just a bit of information. Your slow speed reguards to DSL is bull. Unless your ISP requires your system to run a min Mhz cpu. Cant really suggest how high you can up your cpu unless we know the model of the board & it wouldn't hurt to know the bios version too. Here is a small list from Fixya of Dells & Pent III.
