R60e cpu upgrade


I have a R60e with cpu Celeron M 530 (socket M) chipset 945GM.

I have tried to mount a Intel core 2 duo T5500 socket M, but when i turn on the pc i get a black screen and I can only turn off the thinkpad. Also the bios don't give out any sound Smiley Sad

What I can try to do?


Sorry for my poor english :-D

Re: R60e cpu upgrade

I think it is because the motherboard does not support 64 bit  Architecture only 32 bit  the T2300 (1.66GHz), will work

Thinkpad R61 7733-1GU
Thinkpad X61T 7762-54U
Thinkpad X60T 6363-4GU
