There are two main things that can help speed up a laptop: More memory or a faster hard drive.

I would first max out your memory. If it supports 4GB, then upgrade it.

For a hard drive, you can either get a faster regular hard drive, or for the ultimate speed, upgrade to an SSD.

What I was thinkibng of doing was a faster CPU: My memory is maxed out. And the hard drive is only 1/4 full...So CPU makes more sense to me..?? is what would be an upgradable CPU for what I have that will increase the processing speed and fit in my laptop.it has an amd turion 64 ml -34, 1.79 GHz with 2 gb of ram.

It is almost impossible to upgrade the CPU in a laptop. Assuming the CPU is socketed, and the BIOS supports faster CPUs than originally supplied, and the MB allows you to change the bus speed if needed, and the heat sink supports a higher wattage CPU, then sure, you can change the CPU!

Going with an SSD is still the best way to make your laptop seem faster.

i don't know why nobody answer your question.... you might be able to find a 2.4 turion 64 processor. most other upgrades for processor will be in sempron, socket 754. cheaper to upgrade motherboard and processor and fan or buy new laptop... money is your biggest factor. how fast do you want to go.....
