    two weeks ago i dug out my old compaq v4000 dead laptop out of the closet when a dell laptop from my shop fell off a table and broke . the compaq died a couple years ago and a computer repair shop said the processor was shot so anyway the dell laptop had a pentium m 1.73ghz 479 533 mhz processor and the compaq had a celeron m 1.3ghz 479 400 mhz so i took both apart and put pentium m in compaq hit the power button turned on got into windows works good . well when i checked the bios it shows 1.3 ghz instead of 1.73 ghz checked manual it should support 2.0 ghz 533 mhz i did a bios update still shows the same. the ram is 1 gb pc2700 ddr 333mhz could this be the reason.i would switch memory with the dell but its 2 gb ddr2 5300 or somthing like that i just know it would not hope someone can help me out
