Does ELITE PT800CE-A supports Core 2 Duo?

  1. I have a ELITE PT800CE-A motherboard with a Pentium IV 2.4A
    1) Can I upgrade the motherboard to a Core 2 DUO?
    2) Do I need special changes in the operating system, or just change the processor and ready to work?
    Thanks in advance.

    No, your motherboard does not support Core 2 Duo's. It is socket 478, and Core 2's are socket LGA 775.

    If you did upgrade only your processor, you would not need to make any changes in the operating system. If you upgrade the processor and motherboard though, you will most likely have to reinstall your operating system.

    No you can't upgrade a motherboard, you can replace it though, so thats an it won't work for the second question.
