A have a Asus M2400N notebook and I am unable to find which is the exact model of the processor. It says Intel Pentium M 1.70 GHz at boot, and using the command:
dmidecode -t cache
in Lubuntu 16.04, it says the L2 cache is 2048 kB. But then, looking at the processors with this specifications ( ARK | Processor Feature Filter ), there is more than one option, and they have different sockets. The only processor with 1.70 GHz and 2M cache is the Intel® Pentium® M Processor 735, however I have found absolutely no mention about 735 anywhere in my computer. So I am confused about which one is the right one.
I bought it used in 2010, and it has 13 years already (its written in the motherboard September/2003). I am considering to buy a new processor to it. However, how I don't know which processor it has, I don't know the compatible specifications. And I don't know how to completely disassemble it.
This notebook has Lubuntu 16.04 installed, which required me to use the boot flag "forcepae -- forcepae", so a hint I have is that this processor is Banias, due to the PAE issue. I can't use the Windows utilities because I can't install Windows.
Trying to install Windows 10:
The option I used was to download the Fedora ISO with the IPDT utility. When I run the IPDT test with all options selected, the test fails. When I deselected the option regarding SSE, it was able to complete the test. The output was:

Most of the tests weren't conclusive. From reading the results about the clock, do that means the processor is overclocked? Its BIOS has absolutely no options to configure the voltage.
From what I read, looks like it is a Intel® Pentium® M Processor 1.70 GHz, 1M Cache, 400 MHz FSB Specifications , but the 2048 kB of L2 stated in Linux makes me think it may be a Intel® Pentium® M Processor 735 (2M Cache, 1.70A GHz, 400 MHz FSB) Specifications .
