Yes it can. Check you have the latest bios. I am running two units both with 1.4ghz (133mhz FSB).

According to IBM, no. the fastest CPU you can use for the 8479 is a 1.26Ghz, 512kb Cache, 133Mhz FSB, Socket 370 Processor PN 32P0652. Made by IBM.
Also known as a PIII-S. You can get one for around $12 on Pricewatch.
I personally think it might work if it's a 512kb cache 1.45v chip; If it was mine I might try it, but I can't find even anecdotal evidence of anyone trying it. I'd put it at a 50/50 chance of smoking your motherboard, CPU, or both.

Hi sir/mam, i have a gigabyte motherboard 7vm333m-rz n now i m presently in tis board AMD processor is running... can i change the processor by pentium 3 instead of AMD.

-> NO

It has a Socket 462 processor socket. (Also known as Socket A, )

This is strictly for AMD processors ONLY, and only for AMD processors that use this processor socket.

An Intel Pentium III processor, that is not a Slot 1 processor, uses a Socket 370,

List of Intel Pentium III Microprocessors,

Scroll down also.

{ If it states Slot 1 AND Socket 370, it means there are processors Intel made, that were that model, but could have been a Slot 1 processor, or Socket 370 processor.

Using the first example;
Pentium III 500E,

The first example on top, is an Intel Slot 1 processor style.
The rest of them on down are Socket 370 processors, EXCEPT for the Pentium III Xeon. (Zee-On)
It is a Slot 1 processor.

To upgrade from a Pentium 3 to a Pentium 4 processor, you would have to replace the motherboard. The Pentium 4 processor has more pins on it than the Pentium 3 and would not sit in a Pentium 3 motherboard.

Not showing on the screen in the sense, is the Operating System [assuming XP] system properties window not showing the processor details? If its the case, generally some processors will have some issues with the Operating system.You can fix it by downloading some "hot fixes" from Microsoft.
Try this: 1.Open the "run" dialog box [Windows key + R] 2.Type "dxdiag" [without quotes] 3.Press enter. 4.You will be able to see the processor configuration in that window.
If not succesfull, please post. I will suggest another method.

I checked out the Latitude D610 laptop, and you'll be glad to know that you have the following processor upgrade options:

1.) Pentium M 780 Processor - 2.26 GHz, 2MB, 780, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB (fastest upgrade)
2.) Pentium M 770 Processor - 2.13 GHz, 2MB, 770, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB
3.) Pentium M 760 Processor - 2.0 GHz, 2MB, 760, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB
4.) Pentium M 750 Processor - 1.86 GHz, 2MB, 750, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB
5.) Pentium M 740 Processor - 1.73 GHz, 2MB, 740, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB (slowest upgrade)

You can buy these processors from Dell Spareparts or otherwise from a 3rd party store.

Just a bit of information. Your slow speed reguards to DSL is bull. Unless your ISP requires your system to run a min Mhz cpu. Cant really suggest how high you can up your cpu unless we know the model of the board & it wouldn't hurt to know the bios version too. Here is a small list from Fixya of Dells & Pent III.
