    ok...
    so i'm fluent with computers
    and i know my share
    but this is something thats stumped me
    i have a dell inspiron b130
    and i want a new processor
    i know its a 479-pin processor(socket, pin, w/e, you get it)
    i think my chipset is 915GML(idk if this matters lol)

    so i want somethin bigger then my 1.50ghz(cuz aarons rental is cheap)
    can i upgrade to say a core duo? since they all run on 479-pinfriend says i need a new motherboard which this one was just replaced
    and i think he's full of
    ehlp would be loved please :]

    That should be Socket M...download and run CPU-Z, and post what it says your socket is.

    You can't run Core Duo, Core 2 Duo, or any associated Celerons. You can only use Pentium M and Banias/Dothan Celerons. More specifically:

    Banias

    Pentium M 1.3 1300 1024 400
    Pentium M 1.4 1400 1024 400
    Pentium M 1.5 1500 1024 400
    Pentium M 1.6 1600 1024 400
    Pentium M 1.7 1700 1024 400

    Dothan

    Pentium M 710 1400 2048 400
    Pentium M 715 1500 2048 400
    Pentium M 725 1600 2048 400
    Pentium M 735 1700 2048 400
    Pentium M 745 1800 2048 400
    Pentium M 755 2000 2048 400
    Pentium M 765 2100 2048 400

    Pentium M 730 1600 2048 533
    Pentium M 740 1733 2048 533
    Pentium M 750 1866 2048 533
    Pentium M 760 2000 2048 533
    Pentium M 770 2133 2048 533
    Pentium M 780 2266 2048 533

    Banias-512

    Celeron M 310 1200 512 400
    Celeron M 320 1300 512 400
    Celeron M 330 1400 512 400
    Celeron M 340 1500 512 400

    Dothan-512

    You can't use that chip. It's Socket P. They label it Socket 479 because Socket P has 479 pins; it's definitely misleading. Either way, don't get a Celeron. A Dothan chip in the 730 to 780 range is most likely your best bang for buck.
