Default Toshiba help

Hi, I'm new to the site and looking for a little advice.

I have a really old laptop, which is a Toshiba L100 PLSA4E-003008EN (or L100-134). I have had it upgraded to a 1.7 Pentium m processor, and also 1.5gb of ram (although only saying I can use 1.37). Its running a little slow so was wondering if it would be possible for me to upgrade the processor to a dual core of some sorts. Pretty much anything better than what I have really.

I know its probably time for me to upgrade to a new machine but i'm a little broke and was wondering if there was an alternative until I can get some money together.

Any help would be appreciated.

Here is a link to the model if it helps

Satellite Pro L100-134 - Toshiba

Sorry if I'm breaking any rules by posting a link but I didn't seem to see anything on it.

In laptops the processors are soldered onto the motherboard and means that it cannot be upgraded.

I'm confused now as Ive had it upgraded from a Celeron m to a Pentium m only a few months ago. Or is it me just being a idiot and I'm missing something? Sorry if I'm asking stupid questions but I'm not too familiar with processors.
