Default swapping dual core with core 2 duo

i have a lenovo R61i with an dual core T2390 1.86 GHz and i want to swap it with a core 2 T5500 1.66GHz from an asus F3Jc. ive heard that the sockets are compatible but wanted to make sure its actually possible and , even, worth it.

if the sockets are compatible then there shouldn't be a problem assuming that your PSU could handle it

Yha, but will the BIOS recognise it?

Such as my 680i can fit a 45nm quad, but won't run it, just 45 duals

These are laptop processors? I dont think they are compatible. T2390 is socket P, and T5500 is socket M, not to mention the T5500 has a higher bus requirement and higher voltage, something your laptop mobo might not be able to handle.

AP4 is right, socket P and socket m are not pin compatible. You guys need to do research before handing out advice. Socket P replaces socket M and has a higher fsb.
