I have an r 61 with T 7300 processor at 2 ghz.
Is it possible for me to upgrade this with a T 7500 2.2 processor.
how many memory card slots are availble in r 61. 2 or 4?

yes you can upgrade to a T7500, but you will not see much performance improvement, you will lucky to see a 5 to 7% increase in the overall speed.
There is only 2 ram slots, the only Thinkpad that has 4 ram slots are the W701 and the W510.

the thing is I already have the T7500 from another laptop with broken video chip.
that is why i am thinking of upgrading.
The lenovo r61 specifications say T7300 has a 667mhz FSB and T 7500 has 800 Mhz FSB.
but notebookcheck says T 7300 is also 800mhz.
Will there be a compatibility problem with the mother board if I upgrade
my model no. is 7743A11

That would be because your ram runs @ 667mhz.
