As near as I can figure a Pentium processor is socket 775 and there are no i3, i5, or i7 that are Socket 775. they are at least LGA 1155/6 or above.

Have you maxed it out on memory. Usually memory upgrades are the best bang for the buck (quid?).

I'm running the computer how i got it with 3 gig of ram i already had to get a new HDD as the toshiba that it came with died so i got a WD of the same size and got rid of all the added acer crap but kept the drivers and it runs better but it can't handle the games i play, thats why i want to upgrade the CPU

And to add, that model laptop is discontinued so would be difficult getting much specs of the machine.

Install this : http://www.filehippo.com/download_speccy/ and it should tell you all you need about your hardware.
