      Hello,

      I have a Packard Bell EasyNote MH36 with the following specifications:

       

      Motherboard:

            CPU Type                                          Mobile DualCore Intel Celeron T3000, 1800 MHz (9 x 200)

            Motherboard Name                                  Packard Bell PE2L

            Motherboard Chipset                               Intel Cantiga GL40

            System Memory                                     1976 MB  (DDR2-667 DDR2 SDRAM)

            DIMM1: Samsung M4 70T2864QZ3-CE6                  1 GB DDR2-667 DDR2 SDRAM  (5-5-5-15 @ 333 MHz)  (4-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz)  (3-3-3-9 @ 200 MHz)

            DIMM3: Samsung M4 70T2864QZ3-CE6                  1 GB DDR2-667 DDR2 SDRAM  (5-5-5-15 @ 333 MHz)  (4-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz)  (3-3-3-9 @ 200 MHz)

            BIOS Type                                         Phoenix (04/08/09)

       

      According to this report, motherboard chipset supports DDR3 type memory.

       

      North Bridge Properties:

            North Bridge                                      Intel Cantiga GL40

            Supported FSB Speeds                              FSB533, FSB667

            Supported Memory Types                            DDR2-667, DDR3-667 SDRAM

            Maximum Memory Amount                             4 GB

            Revision                                          09

            Package Type                                      1329 Pin FC-BGA

            Package Size                                      34 mm x 34 mm

            Process Technology                                65 nm

            Core Voltage                                      1.05 V

            TDP                                               12 W

            In-Order Queue Depth                              12

       

      So my questions are:

      - Can I replace my memory with DDR3 type?

      - Can I replace/upgrade my CPU with a more powerful one?

      - If "Yes" which CPUs are compatible with my motherboard?

      Thank you for your help!

      Best regards!
