    What I would like to get is a complete list of all compatible processors for my MB so I can determine affordability to speed increase.
    Some processors are crazy expensive. Then there is the issue of hyper threading and if that is a compatibility factor. Thanks

Dell inspiron 1420 cpu upgrade ???


There are very little things that you can upgrade in an laptop. The processor that you have on your laptop is top end processor in its family and the thae best you can do is to go for a faster core2duo as any other processor will not fit on your laptop motherboard.

Contact your system manufacturer to know about compatible processor for your laptop.

I have the dell 9100 and recently my sound stopped working. No sound


Provided that the audio is not disabled in the BIOS or muted in the volume controls and that the driver is properly installed, then the next step is re-seating the F2 cooling fan assembly (The audio board is part of the fan assembly, don't ask me why)
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins9100/sm/fan.htm#1000550
If re-seating doesn't resolve then replacing the fan assembly is next.

Run MS Vista on Dell 9100


The reason they told your daughter that is because either there isn't a powerful enough CPU and enough memory to support it and also there are no vista drivers for that laptop on Dell's website.

If you decide to put vista on that laptop your going to need to make sure that whatever hardware drivers vista doesn't detect, you'll need to search on the net to find vista compatible drivers if they are out there, it will be time consuming.

My recommendation from my own experience, make sure you have at least a 2GHz processor and 1GB or memory.

Compatibility


Not without major case modifications. Dell uses Dell specific rather than industry standard motherboards on all their systems except the newest XPS line. Sorry.

I have a dell inspiron 9100


It appears you have the latest BIOS revision for your notebook.

That chip is not supported by your motherboard/BIOS revision. You may want to contact dell, or keep checking the support download page to see if they release an update allow you to upgrade.
