The fact is that the Tecra 820 was delivered with different CPUs:
PIII-M (Mobile) 750MHz;
PIII-M (Mobile) 850MHz;
PIII-M (Mobile) 900MHz;
PIII-M (Mobile) 1.0GHz

In this case the fastest CPU which you can use is a PIII 1GhZ.
However the CPU changing is not easy and you should change anything if you have no experience.
Important: You will loose the warranty if you open the notebook.
Furthermore in my opinion you need also a high performance cooling module because the new CPU will produce more warmness.

I have also found a information that this unit was delivered with 10GB; 20GB; 30GB HDDs. I think you will have no problems to use a 40GB HDD. The compatible one you can order from the Toshiba service partner.
