  Dell Latitude CSx?

Does anybody know what the possibilities for processor upgrades on the Dell Latitude CSx? I know that it currently has a Mobile Pentium III running at 500 Mhz.

Hi Kevin,

In most cases you can easily check the website of the manufacturer for an updated BIOS. As a general rule of thumb it is safe to assume you can upgrade to a CPU that's mentioned as the highest possible clockspeed upgrade option for that particular make and model notebook.

So if it specs out at say 700MHz, don't expect a 850MHz CPU to run on it right away, it might work, but it also might not. Same applies to plugging in a Pentium III instead of a Celeron, if a Pentium III is not mentioned as a upgrade option for that particular make and model, you possibly won't be able to use that CPU.

In all cases it good measure to first see if the motherboard and BIOS support the type of CPU you want to buy, before buying it.

Best regards,
