I have an old HP Pavilion s7000. It has a Celeron CPU and I think has 1GB of RAM. Since I don't know anything about upgrading I was wondering if you could help me figure out if any better equipment such as a new CPU, more RAM or anything like that would fit into it. I don't know if the power supply will be enough to power this or if the motherboard can support any upgrades. I can't seem to find any proper specs for my model of computer which is why I am asking here to see if anyone knows if I can upgrade it to be usable again.


Thank You!

Worth A Look.


If it were me...rather than dumping money into that system...I would just replace it...with either a refurb or a newer system.  The technology of that system does not merit additional cash outlays, IMO.


Some Refurb Examples.

I agree, if this was say a core2duo system we may have something but its a celeron and upping it may not pay off or even be possible depending on the BIOS on that old HP.

You know you want me baby!
