    barring the flaming that's sure to ensue from upgrading this machine.......:squint:

    my girls computer had some problems, i got it fixed, and was going to build her a new machine, however, where she goes to college they are laptops only. so instead of building a new machine, im putting some of that money into component upgrades.

    sadly its a FAIL inspiron 1501, but after;
    new 7200 rpm hdd with better cache
    2gb 4-4-4-12 corsair
    new fan

    it was running much better, the only thing i am yet to figure out, is what the limitations are on the processor, because it sucks....

    its a sempron 3500+ :ugh:

    i found the socket type, but an yet to figure out what is the fastest processor i can stick in this puppy is. if anyone is savvy, it is a
    "Socket M2/S1G1" :noes:

    it is an AMD socket, but are there any processors that i can replace this 3500+ one with? any help would be awesome, thanks. :wavey:
