Hi,

You would need to upgrade your motherboard and Ram since you have LGA775 socket mobo and DDR2 memory.
It would be better to build new PC.
Best regards :)

Hi,

There is no way to upgrade from Core2 to i3 or i5 series with your current motherboard. You would have to find new motherboard that fits (if you find) in your laptop and buy new ram and new CPU.

It will cost you like brand new PC. Better to go with PC.

Dell sometimes makes mobos, sometimes they use other companies to make them but they are Dell branded mobos.
Something like Corsair Power supplies. They are designers and other companies manufacture them.
But that should not concern you because all information and drivers that are compatible with your mobo will be available only from Dell.
