Welcome to the forum!

 

Use CPU-Z to check the motherboard revision on your T60. If it's 3, you can go to Core 2 duo up to T7600.

 

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

George

What if I can't check the revision this way, because I'm looking to buy sole motherboard? Is this the only way to check the revision?
All I know about the board is that it's described as "1951-FEG". Is that enough to confirm that it will run core 2 duo?

Sorry for reviving the dead

Welcome to the forum!

 

The machine that the board was pulled from was shipped with a C2D to begin with, so you'll be fine:

 

  Modify Clear
T5600(1.83GHz), 1GB RAM, 80GB 5400rpm HD, 15in 1024x768 LCD, Intel 950, CDRW/DVDRW, Intel 802.11abg wireless, Bluetooth/Modem, 1Gb Ethernet, UltraNav, Secure chip, Fingerprint reader, 6c Li-Ion batt, WinXP Pro

 

Also, all newer BIOS versions for the T60 support C2D processors.

Cheers,

George
