Many laptops don't have the capabilities for upgrades of either CPU or Grafic cards, but as jamie said, if you provide us with the make and model we might be able to help.

the model # is 259ia1.  The make says "To be filled out by OEM" when I run the SiSofware Sandra app.

I dont think you can upgrade anythong but you probanl;y wont have top if the specs i'm getting are corrsct the Micro Express 259iA1, has the 2.1 ghz pentium M 765 2mb cache, 400fsb(this is the fastest pentium M with the 400fsb) this proc shouls be able to keep up if not beat a 3-3.2 ghz pentium 4. Comes with 1 gb of ram ( unable to find out the max it supports, you will probably need to contact Micro express (here's a link to thier contact info http://www.microexpress.net/contact.asp) And last the video card the 256MB ATI Mobility Radeon, most (all i have seen) of the ati mobility cards are integrated, usually if they are not they get a different name like the ati x600. But the card should be sufficiant for almost all applications.
