I'm not sure about the CPU upgrade--these generally are hard to determine and this is complicated by the fact that Pentium III processors are no longer made, I would say that you could go on e-Bay and find one there (should be cheap) and try it.
An easier way to get a little more speed is to bring the memory up to the maximum the laptop will hold. (In your case 512 MB). That and set the paging file to allow the system to determine the size needed (Unless your system has Linux installed). Any further upgrades on an older system like yours are usually just a waste of money.

I have Intel Celeron-M 585 2.0-GHz processor in a HP G61-300 and I need something better/faster can you help me?


There are plenty of core 2 duo processors that will work with that board but to minimize the heat issue I wouldn't go any higher than a Pentium Duel Core T4500. You can pick one up off of Ebay for under $40US.

I have a acer 210t laptop with a 700 processor. can I upgrade to a faster processor and if so which one and how fast. Thank you.


Some laptops have "mobile" CPUs (physically smaller, and consuming less power) than the typical "desktop" CPUs.

So, if you know "how" to disassemble your computer, you may be able to remove the heat-sink & fans on top of the CPU, remove the CPU, and install a faster one.

However, if your current CPU is of the "Pentium III" series (which ranged from 500 Mhz to about 1400 Mhz), you may not be able to find a CPU that will be significantly faster than your current 1.26 Ghz CPU.

Instead, I would check the disk-drive -- if it is 4200 RPM or 5400 RPM, I would replace it with a 7200 RPM disk-drive, for better I/O speeds, and thus help your computer go "faster".

Also, I would add more RAM, again to make your computer go "faster".

Can i upgrade my processsor from 850mhz to about 1.2ghz


It entirely on your motherboard. If you still have your manual, it will tell you what the fasted supported processor that will work.

If you open your case, you will be able to see the make and model of you motherboard. The manufacturer will be able to inform you of the fastest possible processor.

I hope this helps.

What processor?


Not all processors fit laptops. You shouldn't get a higher powered processor as you would then need to change the power supply as laptops are set to suit themselves.

Getting an intel may stop problems accoring.

Well mishel, its a little yes, a little no. yes you can upgrade your processor, but not all the way to 4.3ghz, with whats in your computer now, the only processors that will fit are of socket 478, its one of Intel's older chips. There faster chips to date clock in around 3.0-3.4, and that's with four cores, if you need a faster chip, you need to get another motherboard, and with your case that can be a problem. The best processor I could find was 3.0ghz and under $100 on newegg.com. Good Luck
