400 mhz won't give u any difference in performance. You need something like a 2.6+

Will any socket 478 CPU work?And if i go ahead with the 2.4 will i have to flash the bios?Thank you for your reply.

Well, the CPU has to be a mobile cpu, and it cannot be the "celeron M" type. You need a square die CPU without any integrated heatspreader.

Can you even chage the cpu in that laptop? Is it not laser soldered in?

Should be socketed. Only the ULV chips were BGA and therefore soldered in.

Don't replace celeron with a celeron, get a P4 if you can't upgrade to a dual core

i dont know where you grew up from but 400 mghz makes a huge difference. have you ever tried playing wc3 on a 400 mghz vs. 800 mghz computer? :lol:  :lol:

I agree, you wont be able to tell the difference with a 400Mhz celeron increase. And even if you could upgrade to a faster chip the price/performance gain is not worth it.


Looks like you need a new laptop/netbook.
