    Pentium Ds were not pin-to-pin compatible with old motherboards so it's most likely that it won't work.

    Hi kerpunkin,
    I agree with didou, you need to have 775 socket for the procesor
    cheers

    Well it's quite hard to find any info on that motherboard so support for it is quite lackluster. Look around in your BIOS & see if there's any mention about dual-core in it. Unless it supports dual-core CPUs right now, it's safe to say you won't find a BIOS enabling it.
