I'm looking at upgrading my dad's laptop CPU, but I'm uncertain if a processor I have laying around will work. He's currently got a AMD Turion X2 RM 75 in there.
I can't find much(any) info on the motherboard in the laptop. Can anyone explain how the FSB's work in reference to replacing the original CPU. Or where I could find
what the highest speed CPU I could replace it with.

It's probably not worth it. Even if you could locate a CPU to upgrade it with, it wouldn't likely give that much of a boost. What types of usage are resulting in a slow response?

This laptop is about 3years old? If so the biggest bang for the buck would like be installing an SSD and doing a clean install of Windows 7. Perhaps followed by a RAM upgrade if it doesn't already have at least 4GB of RAM.

Anyone else have a second opinion?
