I had a HP pavilion notebook back in college, and after 2 years the processor "fried". I can find the exact parts, but it was somewhere close to the Pavilion dv5220us model and the processor was something close to an AMD athlon w/ 1 ghz. It was bought in 2004 and the computer only had maybe 512mb of memory so it was pretty old. My brother just gave me an intel celeron 2 ghz processor in fine condition out of his 2008 toshiba satellite laptop. I am hoping to take his chip and put it in my old machine, upgrade the memory, and have a decent backup computer for my little bro.
I haven't tried swaping the processors yet, because I wanted to know a little more about how to tell if a processor will work in a new motherboard/computer. Any type of determinant information is appreciated.
