Dell Inspiron E1705 CPU Upgrade

This question is not answered

I have an older Inspiron Laptop which came with a Intel Merom T7400 2.16 processor.  My question is: Is it possible to upgrade the CPU with an Intel Core 2 Duo T7700 Merom 2.4 Ghz Processor.  The T7400 and T7700 processors both have the same specs but with different speeds.

  • No.  The T7400 was the second to last of the socket -M CPUs - the only upgrade for your system is a T7600.  The T7700 is a socket P CPU, which is pin-incompatible with your system.


    All of the Core 2s have now transitioned to Socket P, so the T7600 is and will remain the terminal upgrade for your system.
