Question about Computers & Internet
(Last time I looked, this was the world's largest product support website, and there ARE technicians from AROUND the world; on here!!!!!!!! Do we count as an 'IT techie'? ........Lol!)
In all three of your posts, not once has the laptop manufacturer name, and model number been stated.
Processor (CPU) support depends on;
A) What processor socket is on the motherboard?
B) What motherboard chipset does the motherboard use?
C) What is the processor that is installed now?
With these parameters known, THEN you can think about CPU (Processor) upgrade.
1) CPU (Processor) has to FIT, the processor socket being used.
THIS, is also IF the motherboard HAS a processor socket; and is NOT soldered directly to the motherboard.
2) The motherboard chipset supports the Processor (CPU)
It has to be known if the motherboard chipset will support, the CPU (Processor) that you want to upgrade to.
For older computers the motherboard chipset consists of;
A) Northbridge chip
2) Southbridge chip
With this technology the Northbridge chip, of the motherboard chipset; is what determines Processor (CPU) support.
Newer technology, such as used per se by the Intel Core i processors, does NOT use a Northbridge chip.
3) Looking at the existing Processor now, you can determine;
A) Voltage Range: What voltage range does the exisiting Processor use now?
Does the upgrade Processor also fall within this Voltage Range?
B) Core technology, and architecture:
Existing Processor uses the Conroe Core technology, and the 90nm architecture. (NanoMeter)
Does the upgrade Processor also use the same Core technology, and architecture?
If not is there a BIOS upgrade available?
(The motherboard chipset also comes into play again, here)
Enough of this generic prattle.........
Post the laptop manufacturer name, and model number.
Then I, or someone else can give you the facts; and not generic information.
Post back in a Comment.

It's not posible to upgrade to a dual core, the motherboard is a different design. Keep in mind that the processor, motherboard and memory have a matched frequency. If the processor doesn't match the board then it won't recognize it. Since the board does recognize the T2300, it may be that you need to match the memory in order to get it to boot. Match the memory by going to patriotmem.com and entering the model that the T2300 came from, it will tell you the memory frequency. If the memory matches the processor simply will not work with that board.

1. You must have a processor compatible with motherboard, an Intel Pentium 4M 2.2GHz P/N 91P7209.
2. Download and read pages 81 to 86 and above from the Hardware Maintenance Manual:
3. Pay close attention to reinstall the fan assembly and apply thermal compound if necessary.
4. Re-assemble all the parts again by following the steps in reverse order of the manual.
NOTE: For future reference, your laptop will change to a 2366-FBx, M6x or 2367-FBx model depending on case.

I haven't tried it myself, but supposedly you can do this. You will have to get a processor that will fit in the socket of your motherboard. I believe it's a Socket PGA 478m. If you're going to go thru with this then I hope you're a person who is confident in disassembling & reassembling your laptop. You don't want to end up with a paper weight when you're done. To be sure that you get a CPU that is compatible with the socket on the board, then I would suggest opening your laptop and taking a look at the CPU and Socket. The CPU socket should be labeled exactly what type it is. I would suggest not getting a CPU that is faster than 2.4 GHz. The faster the CPU the more heat will be generated and your heatsink and fan might not be able to wick away the heat fast enough to keep it from overheating.
