I'm sorry, I don't have much experience with notebooks, but I SERIOUSLY DOUBT that a notebook would have a socket 478, which is a desktop socket. Unless these specs are directly from your computer, I would have to strongly disagree with you on that. And newegg should help you find an exact match.

Yea, DELL WAS NOT HELPFUL AT ALL. Their replacement parts do not include a proc, and their replacement mobo doesnt list a socket. All they say is pretty much "this is a mobo for the Inspiron 1100. do not inhale directly"

:thumbsup: To BC

Sorry about all the confusion. If we have your service ID tag we can look up the exact specs of your laptop and determine what processor you need. Is there a specific reason why you are changing your Processor? Mabe its not the problem and we can help find the exact problem with your system.

Thats the most definite statement that I have heard so far, I will go with this but remain doubtful. DON'T BUY ANYTHING UNTIL UR SURE, BUT THIS SHOULD WORK FOR 478. I did a NewEgg search, no 478's came up for mobile processors, but this is probably the best 478 there ever will be. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819116027

I don't think a service tag does anything but pull up the same PC you can search for and pull up your warranty

unless you want it to be faster, i'd reccommend getting the exact same thing for minimal issues

Found some info here at Dell forum
http://www.dellcommunity.com/supportforums...p;cs=&s=gen

http://www.dellcommunity.com/supportforums...p;cs=&s=gen

The 1100 is designed to use a desktop P4 CPU
The mobile P4m has more extensive power saving modes than the desktop P4.

It won't kill it but it probably won't run properly. Your best bet is to stay with what matches the board.


Edit: thanks for the help boopme :thumbsup:
