    Motherboard compatability questions.

    I have an IBM Thinkpad R52 (type 1847-92u) with a 1.8 ghz intel centrino procesor.
    Ok, i have a few other laptops that have verious problems, and want to know if any of thoes processors will drop into this motherboard.

    Pentium 4 from a HP Pravillion zx5200 (i think), 2.8 ghz.
    intell Ceneron duel core 2.0 ghz, from a toshiba l305d

    I also have several amd processors, but i am sure that they need a different type of motherboard.

    thanks for any info yall can give me.

    Re: Motherboard compatability questions.

    The issue with the branded system is that there hardware is specifically designed for their model only. I was having a Thinkpad laptop who motherboard model was hard to find. I use CPUZ to find out the exact model number of my laptop. A motherboard which supports Centrino can also run Pentium 4 or similar CPU. I am not sure about the Dual core but only testing the same can give you right information.
