Can I upgrade my pavillion dv6000 celeron mobile T2080 cpu to a dual core 2 duo T7500? I already know that the core2duo T7500 is compatible with the socket pga478 wich is mine, but I'm not sure about real compatibility.
Thanks in advance.

What is the exact model number of your dv6000?
Please enter the product number (which is found on the same sticker as the serial number) in the box at the link below and post the real model number. It probably isn't just a plain ol' dv6000.

Below is the link to the service manual for your PC model series.
Please see chapter 1, page 1-2 for the list of supported processors.
Also, if you are running BIOS version F.25 or newer you can install 2 x 2 GB of PC2-5300 memory for a total of 4 GB.
You can only flash the BIOS when you are running Vista or XP.
Flashing the BIOS if you are running Windows 7 = bricked notebook.

Below is the link to the service manual for your PC.
Please see chapter 1, page 1-2.
The T5250 is not supported.
I have posted a link to two of the supported processors listed, and your T5250.
I don't know why it wouldn't work, but if you want to try it, you do it at your own peril, since the manual doesn't list it.
If you do want to experiment, please post back and let us know the results.

Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook (GH878EA).
Chapter 1, page 1-2 lists the supported processors, and chapter 5 provides the removal and relacement procedures for the processor.
