Dell Laptop Mother board question


Recommended Posts

on my XPS Gen 2 system, wich is supposed to be a M170, i have the following MB in:

CardBus controller: Ricoh R5C841

PC Card connector: 1, supports one Type I or Type II card

Cards Supported: 3.3V and 5V

PC cards connector size 68 pins

Data width (max) PCMCIA 16 bits

CardBus 32 bits.

To my understanding its the same basic board that's in the newer Inspiron 9400, no?

My question is, can i just update the Intel Pentium M (Centrino 2.13ghz) to a duo core?

I see no question...

There you go... after the edit... there is a question. You want to run a tool such as CPU-Z to identify your motherboard chipset.

According to my Dell owner's manual, the chip set is: Intel 915PM, data bus width 64bits, processor address bus width 36 bits, DRAM bus width dual channel DDR2 memory, 64 bits per channel.

It's a no go... your motherboard as far as I remember is close to the one on my laptop the Inspiron 9300.

can the mother be changed as well? Could i go and put a 945PM in instead?

Or the NERD tool :)
