Hi, I'm new to the site and looking for a little advice.

I have a really old laptop, which is a Toshiba L100 PLSA4E-003008EN (or L100-134). I have had it upgraded to a 1.7 Pentium m processor, and also 1.5gb of ram (although only saying I can use 1.37). Its running a little slow for what I want so was wondering if it would be possible for me to upgrade the processor to a dual core of some sorts. Pretty much anything better than what I have really.

I know its probably time for me to upgrade to a new machine but i'm a little broke and was wondering if this was a possible alternative until I can get some money together.

Any help would be appreciated.

Here is a link to the original model specs if it helps

Just been having a good look around and according to a driver program I have, my chipset is ATI RADEON Xpress 200M if that is any help?

 

According to Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xpress_200 the Xpress 200 series can support core 2 up to 1066MHz but it doesnt specifically say anything about my model and im a little unsure with it being a laptop one (never seem to match up to their desktop counterparts).

 

Can anyone shed any light on the situation for me?

How were you able to upgrade the CPU the first time?  Most laptop CPU's are soldered into place.  I don't think there's much you can do when it comes to upgrading that laptop.

I took it to a local computer hardware shop, i think the guy said it was glued in rather than soldered but i couldnt be 100% sure.

 

He said he could put a 2.2 in it but would have to order one in for me, but i just settled for the 1.7
