Question about Dell Inspiron 1420 Motherboard - KN548
I want to upgrade my cpu Intel Cpu Core 2 Duo T9300
There are very little things that you can upgrade in an laptop. The processor that you have on your laptop is top end processor in its family and the thae best you can do is to go for a faster core2duo as any other processor will not fit on your laptop motherboard.
Contact your system manufacturer to know about compatible processor for your laptop.

Well the two would not be compatible cause one is a P3 and the next is a P4 two completely different socket types so it wouldn't work but what u can do is buy a new motherboard if u want to upgrade to a P4...thats the only thing that is recommended from such a devices cause an upgrade wouldn't be possible to do .

If the computer is functioning the memory timings are fine. If you want to tweak them anyway, go into your BIOS and try changing the memory multipliers/dividers or overclocking QPI frequency or even memory voltage. The timings look the way they do because the Crucial sticks you have are not identical. Setting all the timings the same will not improve performance, but it may cause instability (as might changing any of the memory or other overclocking parameters.) It is a trial and error process for only a slight possibility of performance improvement. Is it worth the time and effort? Only you can decide that. Learning is always a good thing. Keep good notes, benchmark after every change and you could gain valuble experience.
Let us know how it works out too! Good luck.

If you do you will probably need to replace the proccessor also. The proccessor is what is DuoCore and the the motherboard needs to support it

your problem is the same as trying to put a AMD3 into a AMD2 socket, yes it fits and yes i physically should be able to run it it but in reality it won't
