Check your CPU out on CPU WORLD, some of those older intel processors has a speed switch on them. You just enabled it it the bios but its not apparent until you start taxing the CPU.

What is the maxium upgrades that I can give my Thinkpad T20 Series 2647, from speed to memory and possible going from a Pentium 3 to a 4?


You can't upgrade the processor: it's already at almost maximum and you can't change models - different socket. The maximum RAM you can install in it is 512 MB of PC100 SODIMM-SDRAM so the speed difference will be negligible.

CPU speed dropped after installing RAM


Ok. Fear not. You CPU is running at its native speed, it is the fault of Windows reporting the actual CPU speed. If you stop in the BIOS, the real speed will be reported there, the same if you run Linux.

Intel Pentium II Processor Upgrade


No, this highest the P-II went to was either 400 or 450 Mhz. Upgrading a thinkpad CPU may be difficult. Considering prices on used laptops now, I wouldn't think it would be worthwhile, either.

I have 810 bu mother board


your board is compatible with pentium 3 processors through the "coppermine" revision, the pentium 3 "tulatin is not supported" here is a list from wikipedia of the "coppermine" processors supported by your board.:



Coppermine
  • 100 MHz FSB: 500, 550, 600, 650, 700, 750, 800, 850, 900, 1000, 1100 MHz (E-Models)
  • 133 MHz FSB: 533, 600, 667, 733, 800, 866, 933, 1000, 1133 MHz (EB-Models)

Coppermine-T (the only coppermines with an attached heatsink)
  • 133 MHz FSB: 800, 866, 933, 1000, 1133 MHz

The Tulatin core is NOT compatible with intel 810 boards, and they can be easily confused with the coppermine-t's because they also have attached heatsinks.

Your limited with the T20 series, the biggest you can go is 1ghz. Try the Pentium M chip, make sure that it's the same mhz (frequency) that's in it now, the board frequency matches the processor frequency. (either a 100 mhz or 133 mhz, you can tell by what memory it uses PC100 or PC133)

IBM Thinkpad T20 Type 2647


I currently own 3 Thinkpad T-20 Laptops. They all have a 700 mhz processor in them, and so will yours, more than enough to run windows xp, in fact, I am running Windows XP Profession on one of them. The PC100 is the type of memory it uses, not the processor speed. i recently installed a 120 gb drive in one of them so you will have no problem installing a 20 or 40 gb drive, or larger.
