That board supports Prescott CPU's but it may require a BIOS update.

A Prescott will run hotter, need decent cooling, and consume more power.

It might help if you had the precise Intel part numbers (eg; SL76Y format).

Be aware that some laptop vendors have been known to solder in their processors. I don't know if that practice is still done today, but it was somewhat common with older laptops.

Bios is updated to version 1021.005 (last version), it should be ok.
Cooling should be ok too

tomorrow i'll try to replace the Northwood CPU
