Hello I recently repaired a Dell laptop. It is a latitude C610. I am not real familiar will laptops. My question is this, can I replace the P3 processor with a P4 ?? Is this possible without changing the motherboard. I upgraded the hard drive to to 120gb. I added 1gb of ram. Just uncertain about upgrading the processor. Any help would be appreciated.

I believe that would be a different socket. Apples and oranges. Best you can do is see the highest speed P3 that motherboard can handle. Dell support is usually pretty good with that.

heres some people talking about it:
depends on which version mobo you have as to how high you can go.
highest I've seen so far is 1.2 GHz
