I no longer have this laptop, but I put a AMD Turion 64 Mobile CPU Processor ML 42 Socket 754pin processor in it. Run a lot cooler than amd xp chips. Also Install MSI M630 bios with Turion support. I maxed out the memory and installed win 7. Worked great.Had to hunt for drivers because I installed 64 bit. My neighbor had to have it, so I sold it to her. Go to ebay for parts, they are still fairly cheap. Good luck. :-)
Thanks, I was looking on eBay but didn't know which CPU to get. This machine has been a work horse. I bought it in early 2006, took it to Iraq and Kuwait, then to Afghanistan in 2008. I've replaced some parts I bought on eBay to keep it going, like a new video display, still running XP though because I like Outlook Express which isn't available on my Windows 7 desktop. Now I'm in Korea and the machine just keeps on chugging along. I don't game so the video is fast enough for what I do. I maxed out the memory, now I have 2 2GB memory chips but the Averetec only recognizes 2 GB total and that is what it shows. Maybe the MSI 630 bios will also let me recognize the other 2GB that's there.
