Core 2 Duo Confusion... Socket M/Socket P/Socket 479m for Jetway J9F2???
Alright, I let 2007 roll by without even looking at processors much. Well what d'ya know, they changed a bit and I feel like a n00b again. :D :lol:
To get straight to question, go to the bold at the end. :)
I am putting a Jetway J9F2 in replace of my current Commell LV-670m (For sale btw). It takes a Core 2 Duo, Core Duo, Core Solo, or Celeron M chip according to the book.
Well I ordered what I thought was a T7600 but now that I look back the title says T7600 and the image you can read T5500 on the CPU. I will get a refund if this doesnt work and so far it hasnt...
The confusion comes from the good ol' socket 479. I understand the old difference between 479 and 478 and even explained it before. But now I am stumped on what 479m is that Jetway says this board can support... From what I gather Intel made the Merom core which are 479 and called Socket M. Then last year they made it still 479 but Socket P, and Socket P doesnt work in Socket M. So there are T5500 and the like floating around in 2 very different socket types? I cannot seem to find what this Jetway board actually takes. I cant find any CPUs locally either because they are laptop ones and everyone only has desktop versions. If you know of a big-box store that has it let me know!
I have read some places it takes the Socket M, and other places it takes the Socket P. And I have also read that Socket M and Socket P are not interchangeable, so someone somewhere is lying, and I cant make heads or tails of it. Only other C2D processor I have is in my laptop, and I was seriously considering ripping it out to try, but it is probably the only thing I own that still has a warranty! :lol:
I put in my T5500 SL9U4 (Which wikipedia tells me is Socket M) into the mobo, and start it up. The mobo lights up with 2 leds and nothing. No POST beeps or anything. So this tells me it is either the mobo or the cpu and I have no way of eliminating the possibilities because I have no other mobo with this socket, or any other cpu to fit in this socket. So I am taking a 50/50 gamble it is the CPU, but at this point I dunno and it is a good paperweight.
So to sum up, what does the Jetway J9F2 take for a CPU? Socket M or Socket P?
And what does Socket 479m refer to? Socket M or Socket P or both?
