No; the motherboards and CPU pins are different.

so t6600 which is a laptop processor and i3 330M can't be changed on a hp dv6 motherboard. Does the i3 330 have a different socket than the t6600 core 2 duo?

Like stated, it's a completely different socket, so that can't happen. Sorry.

No; Different socket, motherboard and cpu/motherboard architecture.
C2D T6600 on top and Core i3 330M below.

Now that I see the processors I understand! Big difference. Very sorry I bought the C2D T6600 instead of i 330 M. I don't do much processing with my computer but I could've had a newer better processor at the same price.

Another thing. Although my laptop is new I hear a scratching sound from the hard drive. The other one I had didn't have this sound. Curiously, the sound sometimes ceases( I mean the hdd works and there is no sound, not in idle mode for the hdd). What's wrong?
