Hmm, bummer. I was going to suggest just ripping it apart and looking on the socket to see what it's labeled, but then I noticed it's for a laptop...

My suggestion is, try a google search based on the mfg. and the model. Usually you will find what mobo goes in them and you should be able to easily find the socket there. If not, post that stuff here and someone will probably know.

Open it up. The white part under the CPU is labeled with the socket type.

774... Hmm... That's a tough one!

I have to say there's not much that I can find to go in that CPU. Just get a desktop...
