Current spec. as follows:

Code Name: Merom
Package: Socet 479 mPGA
Technology: 65 nm

Chipset: Intel i945PM rev. 3

Any help would be greatfully appreciated,

Im not sure what the board is, it's in an Acer Aspire 5630 laptop, and all Im sure is that it's the intel chipset. Where would I be able to find out what it is, without taking it apart??
 
So its a laptop, i though it was desktop motherboard (because some desktop motherboards support Intel mobile CPUs)
well i think the max CPU that u can put on it is that T5600 u have, but to be completely sure u might want to ask from ACER too
