My man what are you doing messing with Celerons and Pentium 4's? I mean if you're doing it just to learn I suppose i understand, but dang those are old! What you'll need to do is look up what type of socket your CPU's are. If they are both the same socket, for instance 775, then you'll be all good. If they are different, then it's a no go.

For both gaining more speed cash and learn however, I have done same thing on other laptop before

The thing is the motherboard is kind of old and I don't know if dual core will fit and work with it

I attached a photo for my motherboard shows all the info. can you take look at it !

and tell me what is the best and least CPU I should look for and what size is the socket

first, youd have to try and find the socket, and hope that the CPU isnt sodered into the motherboard, if it is, your just plain out of luck. Its hard to tell where its at in that photo. Second, make sure the pentium 4 your using is a mobile version, and not the desktop version, otherwise you could have overheating problems.

if you see the first picture you gonna notice the black square between the fan and the hard drive space ! get it

can you tell me what is the socket number from the second picture it's from cpuz app. so that I want to confirm that .

ah I see it now. my apologies. looks like socket 478. CPUz doesnt state what it is. Way to find out if your pentium 4 will fit or not, is to try it. If you have to force it, its the wrong type, it should just slide right in once you line up the pins. Make sure you apply thermal paste and get your heatsink on straight-and really watch your temps. pentium 4s tend to run hot.

It looks to me as if it's a 775 socket, I couldn't find much but I did find one source stating that here. Just be sure the P4 is a mobile version like Patriot said and that it fits in without force. Best of luck, let us know how it turns out!

that is NOT a 775, 775 was the first CPU socket that offered the pinless CPUS, so the pins, had to be in the socket. The socket in that picture, has no pins, so it is definetly, 100% pre-775.

Good call Patriot my bad. Regardless though OP, if it fits give it a whirl.

But I think it is better than celeron, celeron doesn't tend to get hot !

I am sorry I didn't notice that I haven't posted the CPU info.

aaaah socket 479. Good think you posted that. Socket 479 looks like a socket 478, but its not, it has one more pin and theyre configured differently. With this little bit of information, I can tell you your pentium 4 will not work with your laptops, you need either a celeron M or a Pentium M to work.

What is the different between Celeron M and Pentium M and, What is the difference between Pentium M and Pentium 4

celeron, is the budget CPU, pentium was the high end. Between a pentium 4 and pentium M is the M was designed for laptops, lower cache, lower power consumption, and often slower frequency. Pentium 4s outperform Ms, but they run far, far hotter.

I see I will go for Pentium M and that is it, but if we go a little bit far for core 2 duo

according to this list
