Re: Upgrade the processor on a Toshiba equium l40 series...

The core2 duo chips will be a different socket to your celeron cpu so can do that unfortunately. You may be able to upgrade to a faster cpu of the same socket type but will probably need a bios update for it to run at proper speed.

Unfortunately laptops arent really designed to be upgraded at all bar extra ram/hd/dvdrw.

Hope that helps?

Audio drivers can not be installed in celron 633 mhz processor

Hi there.

Find the manufacturer's name of your mainboard. You should be able to download audio drivers from their website. You could alternatively give me the name and I could try to find them for you.

Upgrading laptop CPU

Yes. Your motherboard only supports cpu's with a FSB of 400mhz. If you want to upgrade you would need a compatible cpu running 400mhz FSB. Hope this helps.

Need to know where the additional memory slot is on my laptop

Its at the base of the laptop under a screw, generally in the very center. You may find the Hard Drive or CPU but the RAM looks like a small chip plugged in sideway. Try not to touch any of the components before you are sure you don't have any static on you. it could destroy the device.

You have to make sure you get the same RAM as the one currently in there. for example PC6400, you must get another PC6400. Try and get ram the same brand and chip. It will still work if its different but not as good.

By default your Laptop has only 40GB, you should upgrade that too if you want to. If you do, you will need to reinstall Windows.
