I have a dead laptop with a Dual Core Pentium T2060 processor. 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?

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).
