Question about Computer Processors
There is a basic guide i will give ya
1. not all parts are comptable so please check visually before trying to swap them
a. the large to med size board that everthing plugs into is the MOTHERBAORD or mobo for short
b. the cpu central processor unit (usually) is under a heat sink & fan upper left hand when looking at most (most) desktop mobos
c. the ram random access memory is usually to the right of that and may be sd ddr ddr2 depending on age of mobo
e. there should be cables going to the optical drive, cdrom, etc, hard drive or HDD for short wide usually gray is called ide or smal thin sata depends on the mobo
f. sometimes there are parts in the slots on the bottom left of the mobo (these can be anything from vidoe cards to modems to lans no way to tell without more info)
the first thing to look at if you are upgrading is the ram compatable take a tick out of the old unit you will see the catches make sure it is unpluged and you have touched the metal case before touching inside of computer static electrcity can damage a lot on a computer then take a stick out of this one do the slots or notches line up if so more than likley they are compaitble
next look at the cpu repmve the heat sink and fan carfully lift the cpu chip do not bend the pegs or its ruined look at the slotit came out of it will tell you mpg or pga 478 or socket a or socket 482 they would have to match to see if they were ubgradable.
like I said though depends on the age difference most are not that compatible even in the same brands.
