Foluwa,
You can go here: http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/details?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~tab=2, and enter your service tag number (would have done it for you if it was posted) and you'll get your systems configuration and should be able to determine *********** Board, Socket, and max Processor that it will support.
Good luck.

Can I upgrade a dell 900mhz p3 processor


Not really [ only possible might be to a faster P3 cpu]. Those motherboards are so old it would be cheaper to just buy a new system as Dell cases & power supplies, etc for that old a computer are all proprietary and would take major modification to upgrade to a new motherboard, ram, cpu and such. Hope this helps.

I want to upgrade my procesor to faster procesor.


Upgrading processor is not likely a practical solution; find out the motherboard manufacturer and contact their site for more information. As to upgrading the motherboard, you'll have to know what kind/size of board your system will require. If you don't have lots of experience, this process is very risky.

Frankly, the cheapest way to upgrade your computer is to buy a used and working product with Windows XP already installed. Go to http://craigslist.com, select your city, and search for a brand name you trust. I've bought DOZENS of used computers very cheap that way (I'm writing this on a $2,200 Dell Latitude D620 I bought fiv months old for $500, who needed the cash!)

I want upgrade


hello, i would install the cpu you wish to use, then see how it runs. and then do a bios update. this may work,if not the motherboard may not be compatible with the cpu upgrade, (propriatory equipment sometimes does not allow such upgrades) like hit or miss! i hope this info helps,and you get the dell to accept the faster cpu. good luck! glen

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.

Armada 1700 upgrade


hello
No you cant upgrade your processor.
also to change processor is very complicated in a old compaq.
and if you should manage to find a faster processor to your old compaq it not gonna make your laptop faster. the mother board and ram memory are still to old.

Upgrade GX150 from P3 933mhz to something better


yes, to 1.1 gigs is not difficult, much higher than that and you would have to upgrade the BIOS software.

Well mishel, its a little yes, a little no. yes you can upgrade your processor, but not all the way to 4.3ghz, with whats in your computer now, the only processors that will fit are of socket 478, its one of Intel's older chips. There faster chips to date clock in around 3.0-3.4, and that's with four cores, if you need a faster chip, you need to get another motherboard, and with your case that can be a problem. The best processor I could find was 3.0ghz and under $100 on newegg.com. Good Luck
