How to Remove a AMD Processor


<p>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. Removing the processor is an issue to withdraw from the motherboard with your hands after you remove the heatsink from the chip.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>1. Turn off the computer and unplug the power cord before removing the AMD processor. Unplug the connector on the back of the computer case and remove the screws, the lid of the computer, in the case with a screwdriver.<br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Slide the computer cover and set aside. Pull the cord that connects the heatsink fan on the motherboard with one hand.<br /> <p><br /> <p>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.<br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Pull the heatsink and fan on the motherboard and set it aside.<br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Lift the AMD processor motherboard and carefully remove it from the computer.<br />

I WANT TO UPGRADE MY DELL INSPIRON ONE 2305 PROCESSOR


As long as the new one works in the same socket type then just take off the heatsink pull out the old processor, put the new one, put new thermo paste on the new proc and attach the heatsink. You can get the paste at radioshack. Only put a dime sized drop on the cpu.

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)

Hp Support > Compaq Presario SR1050NX > Specifications > Motherboard Specifications >

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00072236&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=405454

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)

Hello,

Thanks for using fixya.

My name is Carlo.

Your computer might not pass the system requirements that's why it has an error. Or, you can try installing it one more time and check if it will work. Computers do mess up sometimes.

Here's the system requirement of SIMS 3:

Desktop PC (Windows XP + SP2):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2000+ Processor
RAM: 1 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce FX 5900 or Radeon 9500)

Desktop PC (Windows Vista + SP1):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2400+ Processor
RAM: 1.5 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce FX 5900 or Radeon 9500)

Laptop (Windows XP + SP2):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2000+ Processor
RAM: 1.5 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce Go 6200 or Radeon 9600)

Laptop (Windows Vista + SP1):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2400+ Processor
RAM: 2 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce Go 6200 or Radeon 9600)

IF your computer does not pass the system requirement, then you cannot play sims3 in your computer.

I hope this helps. Thank you for using fixya

Please leave your comment and ratings. Thanks

Overheating desktop


Hi..It could be your processor is overheating. The cpu may be perfectly fine for gaming but it may need a bigger heatsink and fan or needs to have the dust bunnies removed.
