Is there a cpu upgrade for an hp pavilion 6835 with a motherboard 115561 cognac 20000731

The fastest Pentium 3 that will work in your board is a Intel Pentium III 1GHz chip. Here is a link to the specs:

You could also get a Intel Celeron 1.1 GHz but it only has half the level 2 cache size so it's actually a bit slower than the Pentium III 1GHz chip.
Here's a link to celeron specs:

I want to upgrade the current CPU on the motherboard to my HP Pavilion 760n.....what is compatible with?

Any Pentium 4 northwood or willamette CPU should work, when ordering your CPU make sure is for socket 478, you can use up to 2.80 Mhz speeds on that motherboard. you can get those on ebay for a good price.
Hope my opinion helped. :)

Want to upgrade CPU and Ram on ASUS A7V-ML motherboard

Download a small utility called CPUID from or use this direct download link "". Using this utility you can analyze your system hardware statistics and also you can find the RAM capacity supported in your system along with various other RAM parameters. It will also show you the available free RAM slots to use, as well. I hope this is useful to you.

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.

Is it practical to install a faster processor?

most laptops do not allow for cpu upgrade. For the type of performance you seek it would be best all the way around to check into a desktop that will meet your needs

1. Check user documentation for supported CPUs for your system.
2. If 2.0GHz CPU is supported on your system, you don't need any additional software.
3. I would upgrade the BIOS firmware first. It might have an additional CPU support.
4. Read information from you old CPU. Exemple: 1.4GHz/256/400. 1.4GHz is a speed of your CPU. 256 is a 256k cache, and 400 is 400MHz BUS speed. In general you can boost speed to 2.0GHz or more and cache to 512k, just keep your BUS speed to 400
5. Post your system model or your motherboard model. That information would help in determining the maximum speed of the CPU for your system.

Good lick!
