Can the chip be upgraded?
I have an Intel Celeron chip, which is functioning fine but always wanted to upgrade to a duo level processor. Is this possible without replacing any other parts? Thank you
The processor (CPU) can physically be removed and replaced with a faster one but it is very difficult and expensive and rarely cost-effective. The best upgrade is to maximize the memory (2 or 4 gigs depending on exact model), upgrade to Windows 7 (64 bit if you have 4 gigs of memory) and install a 7200 rpm hard drive.
