Laptop processor ok to put into desktop mobo?
I have a Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop, from like 2003. Lately, even after applying thermal solution on it, its been doing nothing but overheating and turning off. When I looked at the processor, it is the same size and shape of a processor you can put in a desktop! (if processors in laptops had a difference from desktops)

Size and shape mean nothing the socket and the pinouts need to be the same. Looking at the specs it looks like its an older Pentium 4 correct? I think it was socket 478 mPGA CPU so assuming you have a motherboard that is socket 478 and supports the FSB of the chip, which most should you should be able to run it just fine.

Ah, that brings back old memories.
My first overclock,was a 486 laptop processor, in a desktop.
It was also my first and last destroyed CPU, but boy was it fast, for a while.
At least, for those days.Hard Sayin Not Knowin
