Can i upgrade the cpu using a 2.2 Pentium 4 M CPU. The current CPU is the SL7DL CELERON D 2.66/256/533 and the new CPU is the SL6VB Pentium 4 M 2.2 Ghz/512/400. Thanks in advance.

They're both the PGA 478 socket so I guess there shouldn't b a compatibility issue there. celewign October 6, 2006 2:02:59 PM What do you do on your laptop where your 2.66 Celeron doesn't hold up? I mean, the Celeron is not the greatest, but it should be fine for normal laptop tasks I think... -cm Related resources new cpu upgrade - Forum New cpu upgrade? - Forum What should I upgrade first?

You could check with the manufacturer to see which CPUs are supported or research the manufacturer of the board.
