To be honest, the Inspiron 1100 is probably not worth the effort and cost to upgrade
The fast is proc is a 2.4 GHz Pentium 4 CPU, max ram 1GB of RAM,
You can find several dell portables below $500

I successfully upgraded my old inspiron 1100 from a celeron /128 mb to a P4 2.8 GHz (get 400 fsb) and 1GB ram (2x512mb). The upgrade was cheap since I got all the parts 2nd hand. Works great! Won't upgrade the battery pack though, quite expensive!

Im wondering if I can put th processor from my 518 in my GX280


With the flood of information you posted I can barely sift through it

Do I assume you are referring to a Dell Inspiron 518 desktop computer's, processor; to go into a Dell Optiplex GX280 desktop computer?

You know Dell is a computer company that was founded on the principle, to give the customer what they wanted; and to be able to choose from several options.

That being stated, in reality I have no idea of what Processor is in YOUR Dell Inspiron 518, or Optiplex GX280.

However, if I am to assume the specs (Specifications), shown in the following link to be true; for Your computer, then the answer is NO,

http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/dell-inspiron-518/4505-3118_7-33186145.html

States an Intel Quad Core Q6600 processor.
(Operates at a maximum frequency rate {'Speed'} of 2.4GigaHertz.
2.4GHz )

Now let's look at the Dell Optiplex GX280 specifications,

http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/dell-optiplex-gx280/4507-3118_7-30998912.html

Both the Inspiron 518, and the Optiplex GX280 use an LGA 775 processor socket, on the motherboard.

This is good because both the Intel Quad Core Q6600, and the Intel Pentium 4, model 540; use the LGA 775 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_T

What is Not good, is the motherboard chipset used on the Optiplex GX280, will Not support a dual core processor; much less a quad core processor.

The motherboard chipset for the Optiplex GX280 is an Intel 915G,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4.2FPentium_D.2FPentium_EE_chipsets

The Intel 915G chipset supports Single Core processors -> ONLY.
Intel Pentium 4, or Intel Celeron D.

Front Side Bus (FSB) support is either 533MegaHertz, or 800MHz.

The Intel Celeron D is NOT a dual core processor,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Celeron#Prescott-256

"The Intel Celeron D processor works with the Intel 845 and 865 chipset families.

The D suffix actually has no official designation, and does not indicate that these models are dual-core.

It is used simply to distinguish this line of Celeron from the previous, lower performing Northwood and Willamette series, and also from the mobile series, the Celeron M (which also uses 3xx model numbers).
Unlike the Pentium D the Celeron D is NOT a dual core processor."

The Inspiron 518 has an Intel G33 motherboard chipset,

http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/dell-inspiron-518/4507-3118_7-33186145.html

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

Scroll down to G33 in the left column.
Read across, and look at the headings above.

Here we see the Intel G33 motherboard chipset, supports dual core, and quad core processors.
Intel Pentium Dual Core, Intel Core 2 Duo, and Intel Core 2 Quad.

Front Side Bus (FSB) support is for processors, that have either an 800MegaHertz FSB, or 1066MHz FSB, or 1333MHz FSB.

Short answer?

If it is a dual core, or quad core Intel processor, the answer is NO.

Do you know how to find out what processor is in the Inspiron 518, and the Optiplex GX280?

1) Are the computers working, and internet ready?

No?

2) Do you know about Anti-Static Procedures, and how to read the sSpec number on the processor?

Post back in a Comment.

Will Windows CE work on a dell inspiron 1100 Pentium 4 laptop


If the CE disks were made for a particular brand of mini laptop it may not run on your laptop, even if it loads you will probably run into device driver issues.

Church got donated Dell Inspiron B130. Can the B130 Celeron 1.5 processor be upgraded?


You can upgrade the CPU from a celeron into a Pentium which will speeds things up for sure.

Pentium M 740 1.73ghz is the one you need. Ebay all the way. Upgrade should only cost you $10 so it's definitely worth it.

Here's a tutorial on how to swap it out. There is another page missing but basically it says to just get a flat screwdriver and turn the cpu lock open.

You should also max the memory out.

Two 1gb sticks of:
DDR2 SDRAM Memory Speed: 800 MHz ( PC2-6400 ) Data Integrity Check: Non-ECC
For a total of 2 gigs.

Hope this info helps! Please don't forget to rate or write me back if you have any more questions.

Can i install centrino deu processor to dell inspiron 700m ?


Yes, you should be able to upgrade the CPU. The 700m uses a Pentium M CPU running at a 400MHz FSB (or Celeron M at 400MHz FSB). It is compatible with both the old 'Banias' based chip (1MB L2 cache, up to a maximum 1.7GHz) as well as the 'Dothan' based chip (2MB L2 cache, up to a maximum 2.1GHz). All new orders ship with the newer and superior Dothan based chips now (unless the Celeron is chosen), and I suggest you stick to that path when upgrading... the only advantage of the Banias based chips are lower power consumption at the low speedstep setting coming at the cost of some performance. Since these are intended to be portable semi-desktop replacements the more powerful Dothans are preferred.

Don't forget some Thermal paste when installing a new CPU or you may encounter some heat issues which can cause serious damage.

How can I upgrade/improve the capabilities of my Inspiron 1200


The best and quickest improvement is to add more RAM. Add another 512 Mb of RAM. If you already have a 512 Mb of RAM module then add another 512 Mb RAM module. If your laptop has 2X256 Mb RAM modules then you need to remove these and insert 2X512 Mb RAM modules.
The reason why you have 504 Mb RAM is that the video card has grabbed 8Mb of RAM off the main memory.

Caqn i put a 700Mhz Dell Pentium III in the same


No, you cannot exchange them. I was not able to determine what socket your notebook uses, but the 500 Mhz mobile Celeron was only available in two formats. One was Socket 495, which has no Pentium III processors available (only Celeron). The other is BGA2, which is not a socket at all, but is soldered onto the motherboard and is thus virtually unremovable.
