More about double check
  1. OEM MOBOS {Family Line Acer Aspire M} do NOT offer the full CPUID info in their BIOS for even the same family processors. Therefore, unless the Intel Q9650 was an 'optional' CPU with the {Family Line Acer Aspire M} the CPU will NOT be recognized or my simply be dummied down a/k/a a step backwards.

    Based upon the Acer Aspire M3630 (4718235886585) Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz was only listed.

    You'll need to contact ACER -> USA or select your Region

    My best 'guess' is no that the Intel Q9650 CPUID is incorporated into the BIOS.
