Sorry, you can't do that Pentium-M has a special socket just for it and no other processors uses it. The cpu you have most likely is socket 478, while the Pentium-M is socket 479. Yeah it sucks that there is just one extra pin but it just won't work.

To the best of my knowledge, the Pentium 4 M (socket 478) and the Pentium M (socket 479) cannot simply be swapped. To be sure of what you have, run CPU-Z. It should give you all of the info on your processor.

I was pretty sure the 2.2Ghz P-M was the fastest they had. Also keep in mind that the way the Pentium M processes instruction codes is different than the original P4. The 2.2Ghz P-M is actually about equivalent to the 3.0-3.2 P4, as I understand it.

I don't know if you would have room for this Higgins but didn't asus or someone make a P4-PentiumM converter for desktop use? could you squeeze that baby in there?

Well, I dont know about your laptop, but the CPU in my laptop is solderd in (like a northbridge), so you cant swap it out.

Yeah i was suprised, but the P4 is in a socket and i took it out to clean the white thermal crap HP, and put on some a5s or whatever. The heatsink screws on to the CPU so i wouldn't beable to put a conveter on there. This thing overheats all the time, I want to down clock it, but my mobo has a ATI northbridge [dunno where the heck that was made] so none of the OC apps support my board. Would swaping out for a slower P4 do anygood? The heat problems are so bad the thing cant run AquaZone for 5min before it overheats. I bought this thing last year for $1400, and now HP will refund for only $600 =\\ BTW it has DDR1 memory. What if i took off the bottom plate and had a 120mm fan blowing in there? Now theres an idea.
