CPU - amd

I have XP Pro. on my laptop ;
mobile AMD Athlon(tm) XP 25000+
1.86 GHz 704 for Ram

Is it ok to upgrade CPU to a faster one? Or the only thing I can do is to add more memory?

Hi VBdotnet2005,

as long as your board supports the faster processor then there is no worries, xp allows 3 hardware changes before it requires reactivation and at worst you will have to perform a repair install of windws

It's all about what your the system board supports. And assuming that your Windows installation is legit, having to reactivate shouldn't be an issue either.
sorry, should have looked    2000 not xp :)

you wont have issues as long as your board supports it
