Core 2 Duo in a 915GM Motherboard Tags: CPUs Laptops Core Processors Motherboards Chipsets Last response: April 11, 2010 2:07 PM in CPUs Share Changnoi April 11, 2010 9:53:30 AM I've recently acquired a defunct laptop with a functioning 65nm Core 2 Duo processor. I'd like to put it in my girlfriend's laptop with a 915GM Motherboard chipset. Officially, this processor is not supported by this chipset, but I'd like to know if it might work anyway or if I can to make it work, like flash it with a 945GM BIOS or something. What do you think?

The 975/965 were the first boards to support the C2D. They later brought it down to the 945. The 915/925 is simply to early.
