Dell inspiron 1420 cpu upgrade ???

There are very little things that you can upgrade in an laptop. The processor that you have on your laptop is top end processor in its family and the thae best you can do is to go for a faster core2duo as any other processor will not fit on your laptop motherboard.

Contact your system manufacturer to know about compatible processor for your laptop.

Hi to all, How can I upgrade my processor to a higher, I want to have a better speed, my current processor is mobile AMD sempron 1000

There's one faster CPU in that line (3600+), but it has a smaller cache - meaning it wouldn't be much if anything of an upgrade.
Maybe upgrade the memory, that would have a better return, if it will take anymore.
Put the funds toward a newer system.
Hope that helps you to save some cash.

My dell mini inpiron was not working very can i upgrade this? to run faster? What do I need to do?

The Dell mini comes with the 1GB memory and the atom processor which is a very low configuration... This system is deticated for internet purpose alone... The system can be upgraded to any version of windows but it will make your computer even very slow.. So use the windows that came along with it.. Use the disk defragmentar and the disk cleanup periodically that may increase the system speed

PLease try to refer to your motherboard processor maximum support and see the processor you can upgrade to your laptop without buying new motherbaord and other accessories such as memory. Remember if you plan to upgrade device in your laptop please see the hardware maximum support that your laptop hardware can support otherwise if you buy processor and other device beyond the maximum limit support of your current laptop hardware it would not work as you plan.

Im trying to fix up my wife's Dell Inspiron B130 instead of buying a new computer. what is the best processor, and video card upgrade i can do?

You don't want to upgrade the cpu. As for the video card it can't be changed as its build into the laptop motherboard.

I would highly recommend that you instead upgrade the ram memory on the laptop since it will give you a bigger performance increase than a new cpu or video card.

The machine only has 256MB of ram, get atleast 512MB or 1024 /1gb of ram and it will work much better.

System upgrade

You did not post what operating system you have. There are a lot of things that can cause a computer to run slow. RAM is big issue More so than the CPU. The series of CPU that you have is upgradeable by 4 models but the gains are modest. There is also an issue of availability of the processor because that model is 12 years old. Another issue that you need to look into is the programs that are running when the system starts.

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

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.
