My other laptop is an older Dell Inspiron with a Mobile Pentium M 740 proc (socket 478). Can I move the T2060 to the Dell socket 478 MB? Details: T2060 taken from Gateway NX570X Socket 478 MB in Dell Inspiron 9300 I know it should fit, but I don't know if electronically it will boot. I'd rather not fry it (or the MB).
