The computer model number is no help. You need to know the make and model number of the motherboard to find out which processors it supports, the info will be on the motherboard maker's website, but with factory-built computers that kind of information isn't easily available because they don't publish it.

Depending on what you are planning and what or how much you think you can gain from this, there might be a possibility based on what I found, but you probably will never get any significant improvement that will be worth the time and money. Here is what I found:

If you are expecting an improvement overall of more than 10% if you upgrade the CPU, max out the RAM, and upgrade to a faster larger hard drive with a completely clean reinstall of Windows XP (will not run Windows 7 well), or expect a gaming improvement of more than 5% based on the graphics that you cannot change, you will be greatly disappointed. It would be better for you to clean out the drive and sell it for whatever you can get for it and purchase a newer laptop of desktop for surprisingly little that could blow that machine away. Be specific for your needs and get the most you can afford so you will happy with it for a lot longer than if you cheap-ed out.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Have you checked out that the CPU is really the bottleneck?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
