Dell Latitude D830 and intel c2d T8300

This question is not answered

Hi all

My D830 doesnt boot when i install c2d T8300 (2,4GHz, 3MB, 800MHz, 45nm) and if i insntall c2d T7500 processor it boots and works flawlessly.

Motherboards BIOS version is the latest i think - A14.

 

Does Lat D830 with A14 bios support Penryn (T8300) processors?

Is there a new bios version (A15 maybe?) with - "Added support for penryn processors."?

Is there a new motherboard revision out that supports T8300 processors?

Faulty CPU maybe?

 

Tnx for your answers
