My wife recently bought me a Compaq Presario CQ62-219WM laptop with an Intel Celeron cpu. As some may know that is a single core cpu Socket P 478. Is there anyone who knows where I can find a dual core replacement for this? Here's the link to HP web-site on this Laptop: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=4221...

Thanks.

Well as you just said it has a Intel celeron cpu, unfortanetly You cant just upgrade to a dual core, You would need to change the motherboard to one that support dual core, Search up Socket 775

really, man thats a lot of work for a $350.00 dollar laptop, heh. I built my own desktop (AMD) but this is my first adventure with intel. So how would I go about searching for a laptop motherboard?

The P8700 runs at 1066 FSB which the MOBO might not support.
The T6600 or T6670 might be a better fit since they run at 800 FSB like the Celeron and are half the price than the P8700

So are you saying you think they may fit?? If so that would be my best bet the T6600.

According to Intel they use the same socket. However if the motherboard/BIOS will support the Dual Core CPU is still in question.

Ok, maybe I will take a chance in a month or so. It's really hard to find info for the board on the HP web-site.
