    I have a Toshiba 2615DVD laptop. It has an Intel Celeron 433 mhz. processer.

    Is it possible to upgrade to a faster processer without replacing the motherboard or do I have to replace the works? And if so (Either way) where s the best place to buy the parts?

    It has been a great computer but it is a bit slow by todays standards.

    Thanks,
    C.J.

    Contact Toshiba to find out if the Chip is soldered directly onto the Mobo. If it is an older unit, I bet it is. :(

    If you could upgrade the processor the highest it is likely to take is a 533MHz Celeron (not a quantum leap in performance there), motherboards in laptops aren't easily replaceable, if you need something faster I would suggest a new laptop. The only practical upgrades for the laptop you have are more RAM and a bigger hard disk.
