Yes you can , go buy a laptop hard drive of your choice, and you will need to take the ram out and take it to where your gonna buy the hard drive , so they can see what type of ram you need, removing the hard drive and ram is easy , im sure if you take the laptop in to a computer store they will do it for you free, and put the new ram and hard drive in , it is a very quick proccess, if you want to upgrade the cd/ dvd drive , you will need to go to a laptop computer store , just type laptop in yellopages and im sure that will find you something, or what ever phone directory book you use where u are from

Which board d685gbf can I replace with for the latest upgrades speed and everything?

Intel D865GBF,

Above is for reference only

"Which board D865GBF can I replace with, for the latest upgrades?
Speed, and everything?"

None, Joseph.

If I take your question literally;..............None.

The latest upgrades for Intel is their Core i processor line-up, based on the Sandy Bridge micro-architecture, and Ivy Bridge 22nm manufacturing process,

[ Intel Core i was first based on the Nehalem micro-architecture, ]

The Processor socket isn't even the same.
The motherboard chipset is of a different architecture.
The ram memory slots are DDR3 Sdram.

This means NOTHING from your old computer setup will work.

Doubt the Power Supply even has enough Wattage, or voltage on the 12 Volt power rail.

Means you need;
1) An Intel Core i processor
2) Motherboard that supports that Intel Core i processor
3) Ram Memory that is supported
4) Power Supply

In otherwords a new computer.

Upgrade with the hardware components you have?

Lemme see.................

The Intel D865GBF motherboard chipset is an Intel 865G,

Scroll down to 865G in the left column. (Springdale)

A) Processor support:
Intel Celeron, Intel Celeron D, Intel Pentium 4, and Intel Pentium Extreme Edition.

Has to use 400MegaHertz, OR 533MHz, OR 800MHz; -> FSB.
(Front Side Bus)

Has to fit in a Socket 478 processor socket,

B) Ram Memory support:
DDR Sdram at either 266MegaHertz, OR 333MHz, OR 400MHz.

Ram memory TYPICALLY, operates at HALF of the processor's Front Side Bus.

C) Graphics:
The graphics expansion slot is an AGP. Uses AGP 8X graphics cards,

D) Storage:
If you are using an IDE (PATA) harddrive, and not a SATA harddrive; there is another problem.

E) Optical Drive: (CD/DVD drive)
Can be IDE (PATA) optical drive/s, but newer mobo's are going to SATA.

Forget about it. By the time you upgrade you could buy a budget computer, that uses at least an Intel dual core processor, and DDR2 Sdram ram memory.

Maybe Intel Core i processor, and DDR3 Sdram ram memory.

Plus there is one more factor:
The Operating System

When Windows is put on a computer it assigns hash values, to certain major hardware components.
For example;

A) Processor
B) Motherboard chipset, and BIOS program. (To include version and date)
C) Harddrive
D) Graphics chipset

Change any TWO of these components, and Windows will 'think' it is being stolen. Taken off of that harddrive, and put on another computer.
This = NO.

Microsoft User's License states, "One GENUINE copy of Windows per ONE computer"

(Microsoft makes one Master disk of the Operating System.
From it all GENUINE copies are made, and sold to the consumer )

You MAY be lucky, and the Windows activation screen will come up.
Then you just re-activate. (Not Register; Activate)
You also MAY not.

Means you will need the Restoration Disk for YOUR computer; or a new Genuine copy of Windows.

DO I sound discouraging? Sorry. Don't mean to be.
Just don't want you to waste your hard earned money, and also wind up with a dud for a computer.

Need to get the wife's pc surfin' faster and load fasre what can I do as far as buying new hardware

For more performance a RAM upgrade is usually the cheapest and most effective upgrade. Make sure your harddrive isnt fragmented. For surfing maybe try using a different browser.

Unit will not start only gives 3 Beeps

Seems like it could be a memory problem, replacing the RAM or checking to the if it seated correctly would be the best thing to do.
If you have an AMIBIOS.

  • Three beeps means there has been a base memory read/write test error. Replacing the RAM usually solves this AMI beep code.
If you have AwardBIOS.
  • Any other beep code pattern you hear means that there has been some kind of memory problem. Replacing your RAM is the most you'll need to do to fix this problem.

Need to upgrade to Intel Pentium 4 2.0/2.4 Ghz IBM Net Vista

if your looking for a new processor hop over to and search for it there, they have wonderful pricing (although Intel is over priced to begin with). If that doesnt work head over to the manufacter's website and contact tech support to see what you need to get to be compatible with you motherboard and RAM.
