Hi,

Honestly In the long run you will be better off buying a cheap new laptop.

Dual core or similiar.

But lets see.
You can upgrade the cpu, memory and the hard drive.

The laptop supports Maximum of 72 MB of Ram by installing a matched pair of 32-mb memory modules in the memory upgrade sockets on the main board. Theres 8 MB build into the motherboard so you will have total of 72MB with 8MB on the board and 64 in the slots. Thats the maximum memory you can have. You could try a biger module at your own risk. (may not work)

the NeoMagic 2093 video controller is integrated and can't be changed.

What is the model of your LM? for example Lm M166ST
You should be able to upgrade to 166MHZ or more.

I don't know how big of a drive the computer supports, but Id guess atleast double? possibly more, I don't know whats the bigest size supported.

Slow laptop, canot upgrade


It cannot be upgraded farther by hardware. You should be able to run xp there. Any lower requirement linux distro is also fine if you like.

Laptops are now-a-days not too costly. May also think about a new one.

Pentium M 2.0 ghz if you update the bios. You would need Dell 600 Bios & that should be available on the Dell website under the support section. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Need faster PIII mobile processor for CPx 650 laptop = X ghz proc


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.

Processor upgrade


Hi ryonsdad,

I checked out the Latitude D610 laptop, and you'll be glad to know that you have the following processor upgrade options:

1.) Pentium M 780 Processor - 2.26 GHz, 2MB, 780, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB (fastest upgrade)
2.) Pentium M 770 Processor - 2.13 GHz, 2MB, 770, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB
3.) Pentium M 760 Processor - 2.0 GHz, 2MB, 760, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB
4.) Pentium M 750 Processor - 1.86 GHz, 2MB, 750, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB
5.) Pentium M 740 Processor - 1.73 GHz, 2MB, 740, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB (slowest upgrade)

You can buy these processors from Dell Spareparts or otherwise from a 3rd party store.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)
