513c Upgrades?

I have a HP Pavilion 513c that I want to put in more memory. It has 256mb at this time. Anyone have any idea what the max if for RAM this computer will handle?

Also, I need to know if I can use a true Pentium CPU and trash this Celeron thats in it now. It is a 1.8Ghz & I have read elsewhere that I can go up to a 2.6 or so. Anyone know for sure?

Looks like you can do 2GB memory:

I wouldn't both with the processor upgrade in this computer. I've tried it in a similar computer with the same chipset. Changing to P4 from Celeron made very little real-world difference. The bottleneck is the Intel 845GL chipset.

Typo...should read, "I wouldn't bother".

I can't see why HP thinks it's so important to not have an edit function on this forum.

Re: 513c Upgrades?

Memory will make more differance to the apparent speed of the machine than the processor speed an Example I am running a 450 MHZ PIII with 512MB of RAM and it will open an open office in about 1/2 the time that a 2.4GHZ Celeron with 224 MB. a Virus scan will take forever but it works. Here is the www.crtucial page for your machine. http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Pavilion+513c
