ok so i have a compaq presario cq60-211dx laptop with 3 gb of ram ( i installed) and a 160gb hard drive. i have a intel celeron processor and am wondering what the fastest possible upgrade is so i can do this. Thanks!

unfortunately no.Most laptops especially older ones are non upgradeable with the exception of ram.The logic behind this is that the cpu is soldered onto the mobo itself.

this may be an old post, but, i don't like seeing incorrect information :) 

disreguard that reply above ... someone doesnt know what they are talking about

laptops these days are generally upgradable in the cpu department ... not many options, but usually upgradable

and cpu's are not soldered on ... they are socketed

the celeron 585 should be upgradeable to a T5850 Core 2 Duo ... you'll need to check around online and see if others have successfully done this with the same model ... sometimes a bios may not have the info in it to properly recognize your cpu, depends on the manufacturer ... but if they use the same mainboard in another model, within the same family persay, but with a Core 2 cpu, then your answer would be yes, you can upgrade.

jsut wondering, what chipset is your motherboard, as most can be upgraded to a core 2 duo but there are some unsupported cpus depending on chipset
