how much ram does it have?
upgrade the memory if its less than 1 or 2 gb. this is probably the first most effective and the easiest upgrade to do for a laptop.

Its for a client he has 3Gb Ram and wishes the processor to be upgraded to 2.3Ghz or larger

The Turion Ultra ZM-86 (2.4GHz) is compatible, but I'm not sure if the processor is soldered to the motherboard and therefore not replaceable.  A 20% improvement is hardly worth the cost, when a new laptop these days costs about $600 and will run rings around that old one.

Thanks finding a price and seeing if it is soldered to the motherboard proving difficult, can another AMD processor be used?

It has to be a Turion socket S1 chip for the Puma platform http://laptoping.com/amd-turion-64-x2-ultra-zm-80-82-86-turion-rm-70-athlon-ql-60-sempron-si-40.html.  The wattage reflects how much heat it generates, which is important for laptops which have cramped spaces and limited ventilation.
