Pentium D to Core 2 DUO Upgrade question

I have a lenovo Serie 3000-J110, model 7393HDS with a Pentium D 325.
1) Can I upgrade the motherboard to a Core 2 DUO E4300 or E6300 ?
2) Do I need special changes in the operating system, or just change the processor and ready to work?
Thanks in advance.

Firstly, Lenovo don't provide upgrade parts like Motherboards etc for OEM upgrades, secondly it would be cheaper for you just to procure another desktop with Core 2 duo processor.

Re: Pentium D to Core 2 DUO Upgrade question

1) Did you mean Pentium D 925? (Never heard of 325.)


2) What is your current motherboard chipset?


You don't need anything special but you need to take note which CPU your motherboard supports. I did a lot of upgrades by myself. My original configuration:


Pentium D 925 - 512MB 533MHz - 280W PSU - Intel Onboard GFX


Now, see my signature...


P/S: I sold all the used parts online to salvage the cost. Smiley Happy
