Since your notebook has an Intel Celeron processor, it has the Intel GL40 chipset, which means you can only install a supported processor with a max FSB of 800 MHz.


Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.

According to chapter 1 of the manual, the best processor you can upgrade to would be the T6600 2.2-GHz processor.
