Hi everybody again! Don´t know who, but I hope someone here can help me.


The situation is almost the same that was discussed in the topic "New Challenge: C2D T9900 to C2Q Q9100!".
Difference now is that we´re talking about a Laptop Acer 5715z equiped with poor Pentium Dual T2390 - 2 Cores, 533 MHz FSB, TDP 35 W, 1,86 GHz, 1 MB L2, PPGA478. This machine is not mine. My friend asked for help... now i´m asking help for you guy´s. The chipset of his laptop is specificaly Mobile Intel GM965 Express. According to datasheet (also with CPU-Upgrade web site: http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-Intel_(chi...press.html), this chipset easily support the C2D T9500 - 2 Cores, 800 MHz FSB, TDP 35 W, 2,60 GHz, 6 MB L2.



Buuutt... Is  the Acer 5715z ready to receive it? Considering the Chipset GM965, yes! What about the BIOS? Well, I have no idea. That´s why I´m here. I don´t want to tell to my friend to buy this processor before confirm if it´s compatible with the 5715z laptop.

Please, can someone check if the microcode update of T9500 is already inserted in BIOS (Last update: Ver. 1.45; 2008/12/8)?
