What you need to do is to take the motherboard out of there. All the screws will have to com out of the bottom of the laptop.
Then go ahead and the keyboard cover will have to come off, the keyboard itself comes out, then there will be some screws underneath the keyboard that will be holding in the top cover Once those comes out you'll have to take off the screen there will be two screw on each side of the lcd that have to come off.
At this point if threre are any wires coming from the lcd screen, they will have to be disconnected so you can pull the lcd off of the top cover to remove it completely.
Now at this point go ahead there may be a few screws holding in the mothrerboard in place. They will be labeled with arrow so go ahead and remove those.
you can now remove the motherboard from the laptop. The cpu will be underneath the cup heatsink assembly which will require some screws to remove the heatsink so now it will expose the CPU.
The cpu is in a slot that has a flathead screw holding it in place in the socket. Go ahead and turn the screw, its not meant to come all the way out so move it to the left until it stops.
Finally you can put the new CPU in place and move the screw towared the right so it tightens put the heatsink and fan back and the fan back as well. Put the screws back into the motherboard to hold it ins place.
Put the top cover back on and the lcd and wires back to were they are and then check at this point to make sure you have video and if you do then go ahead put the rest of the screws back and then you have a new updated laptop.

You are basically limited to what was optional on the model. So you can only upgrade to one of the following cpus:
Intel Pentium M 745 (1.8-GHz) with 400-MHz front
side bus (FSB)
Intel Pentium M 735 (1.7-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB
Intel Pentium M 725 (1.6-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB
Intel Pentium M 710 TJ85 (1.4-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB;
operates at a lower temperature than other processors
Intel Celeron M 340 (1.5-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB
Intel Celeron M 330 (1.4-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB
And you are limted to 2gb of ram max on this model.
