    Laptop CPU Upgrade Socket M


      Hello !
      I have HP Compaq Presario V3018TU Notebook PC.
      Current specifications of it are-
      Intel Core Solo T1350 1.86GHz, 2MB L2 Cache, 533MHz FSB
      2GB DDR2 667MHz RAM
      120GB SATA HDD
      Intel 945GM Chipset
      802.11ABG Wireless LAN & Bluetooth 2.0
      14.1" LCD Screen.

      I found that various processors are available for cheap on eBay.
      So rather selling this machine for less price, I am thinking to  upgrade it.
      According to HP's Service Manual, V3000 series can have Intel Dual  Core T2600 2.16GHz Processor.
      I am wondering that will it support Core2Duo series, say Intel  Core2Duo T7200 ?
      I read socket information, it says Socket M Supports T7200.
      But will BIOS identify the processor ?
      Looking forward for expert advice.
