Can I replace my motherboard and what are my options?

I bought this laptop in 2007 and I want to upgrade my processor and my graphics card (I have Intel graphics currently and an Intel Pentium 1.49GHz processor). Can I upgrade my motherboard + processor + graphics?

"You're kidding, right? You can buy a new laptop for what you'd spend on this. You know you'll have to upgrade the power supply, and RAM,too? And after all that, you'll have a faster computer, but still have that dismally small hard drive.

Your best bet might be upgrading RAM To 2 or 3 Gig (whatever the max is for your machine) and a better graphics card."

"I have the 4630z I upgraded the cpu, hard drive & Ram to 4gb. The system is able to run 64bit windows even if it came with 32bit windows. The cpu was pulled from another computer. The harddrive (250 gb ssd) & Ram are both Samsung & new ;competively priced. I was able to get the Windows upgrade free at the time. I use it as my mobile troubleshooter for other systems and I love the tough design & keyboard. Thats as far as I intend on going with this laptop.

If you have the parts already you can try a motherboard swap, but as for buying the parts to do a system rebuild, I agree with the previous answerer. Its not worth the funds."
