I have a dell workstation (Precision M6500) laptop that has been malfunctioned due to heat and now I wanna use its processor which is I7 but i'm not sure if it fits on desktop. I took the laptop parts and the processor looks like a desktop processor but i'm not sure if it fits or not.
how do I know for sure if it fits on desktop and what kind of motherboard would it support it? Is there anything I need to read on the processor?
I'd appreciate any thoughts
