Removing a processor AMD is a work that can only be done with a screwdriver in less than 30 minutes. The processor AMD is a central processing unit (CPU) with 939 pins, which are connected to the motherboard.

2. Slide the computer cover and set aside. Pull the cord that connects the heatsink fan on the motherboard with one hand.


3. Lift the lever on both sides of the fan heatsink, so straight up and remove the plastic clips on the sides of the sink on the motherboard.


4. Pull the heatsink and fan on the motherboard and set it aside.


5. Lift the AMD processor motherboard and carefully remove it from the computer.

I want to buy a new assembled cpu. I live in Yamunanagar Haryana (India). What are the best parts we can get in a budget of 10000-15000 INR?


Processors are already assembled from the factory, Intel, AMD, or VIA.
(VIA still make CPU's? Hmmm, have to go look) CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.

Will a AMD Athlon 64 processor work in a Compaq Presario SR1050NX Desktop? My old processor Died and I purchased one of these off of Ebay, now just want to make sure it will work...


No Donnie, the motherboard for the Compaq Presario SR1050NX won't support an AMD Athlon 64 processor.

The reason why is;
A) The Processor socket on the SR1050NX's motherboard is a Socket A. (Also known as Socket 462)

CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short.
Look to the right of the CPU heading:
Socket A (Processor socket)

This is the Socket A processor socket used on your motherboard,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_A

You can click on the photo of the Socket A processor socket, to the upper Right, to enlarge.

The AMD Athlon 64 line of processors came out after the Socket A, and used the Socket 939 first.
Then on to the Socket AM2.
(Socket 940 for some models)

processor cores?????


Yes it does matter which processor, per motherboard. This board is compatible with AMD cpu's (Central Processing Units). I recommend getting a Athlon XP 3200+ processor, although you can get faster or slower AMD processors based on how much money you want to fork out. This motherboard uses a VIA KT600 chipset, for your information.
