use of Celeron processor in a intel motherboard

  1. So why would a computer question have any relevance to a newsgroup about
    the REPAIR of electronic devices?

    There are lots of newsgroups about computers, you should be looking
    in them for help. If the first guess didn't work out, there are still lots
    and lots to sift through to find an appropriate place to ask.

    Even if this was a repair question, this is hardly the best place to
    ask "computer repair" questions, since most "computer repair" is about
    changing boards or drives.

  2. Can a celeron M processor be used in a motherboard that currently takes an
    intel M processor. Basically, can the tow processor be interchanged? (I
    realize the performance is not teh same, etc...)

    Any imput would be appreciated.

    (I posted this message on the "intel.microprocessors.celeron" newsgroup -
    got no response)

    Computers are electronics. My first job out electronics school was computers.
    We studied computers in electronics school. Of, course, we used oscilloscopes to troubleshoot
    computers back then, and we had to insert machine code to do it.

    If it fits in the socket, it's worth a try. It might not work with
    your board, but it shouldn't hurt anything. Generally, the Celerons
    and Pentiums of the same generation are interchangeable. A Celeron M
    would probably be a downgrade from a Pentirum M.

  5. You could have spent a lot less energy and bandwidth just answering the
    question. Some of us - I for one - don't mind occasional off-topic
    questions as they expand our horizons and we get to come out from under
    our rocks. :)
