I have the d845gebv2 motherboard. It came with the 1.7 pentium 4 processor which is a 400bus. i have recently purchased a pentium 4 2.8 and 3.06 processors which are 533 bus. i do i change the bus speed in the bios. both of these processors are on the supported processor list from intel. i have recently upgraded the bios to the most up to date p17. but when i move the jumper on the board to get the maintenance menu on the motherboard it comes up in the bios but the only thing it lets me change it the clear password and clear bis or something like that. when i put both of those processors in the machine turns on but no screen i put the 1.7 back in everything works fine, i dont think this is an autodetect motherboard so i need to know how to change the bus speed from 400 to 533. thanks

The E5200 would be a nice upgrade. It retails on Newegg.com for 65-69.00 and usually has free shipping. And if you have a compatible motherboard and purchase a nice heatsink, it overclocks very nicely.
If you want to upgrade you unit be sure that the motherboard socket are totally fix with the processor. The compatibility is important because if it is not compatible the motherboard can not support the processor,
You should be able to upgrade the CPU, since it seems that the DV1000's motherboard uses a socket CPU design. But, obviously, HP would rather have you choose the CPU that you want from the beginning and stick with it. The first thing to do is to check HP website to see what other configurations were/are sold for
your model. If they sell it with faster CPUs then you can upgrade to
one of them...
PLEASE NOTE: In order for a particular processor to be compatible with a particular laptop: (1) the processor must be physically compatible with the laptop socket, in your case I thing you have a Soket 479 processor (2) the laptop chipset must support the processor. (3) the chipset front side bus speed must match the processor front side bus speed, in your case 400Mhz. (4) the laptop BIOS must support the processor.
So I listed here processors with FSB at 400Mhz, I gues that DV1000 as a 855GM Motherboard that supports only 400Mhz with Socket 479

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.
More important is the question of what processors can your motherboard handle. Certain motherboards accept certain sockets and speeds of processor, so you can choose from that to decide what you want to upgrade it with.
Yikes, a Pentium II?? Unfortunately it will definately be more economical to just replace the whole motherboard, or the whole computer! This motherboard will only support a range of P2 processors, an upgrade will cost several hundred dollars, close to the price of a brand new computer with a P4 in it.
According to this review, you can upgrade as far as a 2 GHz P4-M at least;
Other than that, i have been unable to find the details of your motherboard - if you can post the make and model (should be printed on it somewhere) then I would hope to find a more complete list of compatible and incompatible processors.
Gateway themselves no longer offer online info or support for this model, but the motherboard details should enable me to find out what you need to know.
Waiting for your post :)
