Does anybody have a CPU compatibility list for the Vostro 200? I've fallen back on the computer knowledge curve and find so many processors available. Right now it has an E2140 and I'm looking at something like the E6300 - a bit faster and not too expensive. I see one at Newegg for $78 with free shipping. TIA

Reading the discussion HERE should help with the Vostro 200 processor upgrade.
Prior to installing the processor, you need to upgrade the BIOS to latest version 1.0.15.
Thanks very much for the info. I ordered an E8500 so we'll see how it goes soon. I ordered the "retail" version so I may have heat-sink / fan issues, but I can work around that. This old 200 may be around for a couple more years.
The E8500 installed flawlessly with the stock heat sink and fan. The Vostro 200 runs just as quiet but much "snappier". Thanks for the info!

Both Dell and Crucial state the Vostro 200 supports 4gb of DDR2 RAM, see HERE
But, to use 4gb+ of RAM you need 64-bit operating system, 3±gb is all a 32-bit system can address.
Capture this thread to a wiki.
Will try 4gb+ with Windows 7 64-bit
Thanks again for your help
