Question about AMD K6-2 , 333 MHz Processor

Installing an AMD K6-2 processsor on a Compaq laptop

How do I correctly install an AMD-6 CPU into the socket (7) on an (old) Compaq Presario 1260 laptop? There are two little tags on either side of the socket that say "open" and "lock" and the small sliding device locks into place fine without the CPU in... but when I put the CPU pins into the socket and push in the "lock" direction, it won't go all the way and is not very firmly housed (I have another laptop of the exact same model and the CPU seems locked solid). I think I must be doing something wrong but not sure what... Can anyone tell me what I need to do to install it correctly? Thanks a lot.

    Thanks for the reply. The AMD CPU is exactly the same model as the original one. It fits into the socket no problem but when I push it in the direction to make it lock into position, it won't go all the way and it seems I'm not doing something right because I couldn't possibly push it any harder without damaging it.

Either your setting is not correct or your new AMD CPU is not a compatible type. One thing very easy to verify is if it is compatible, it will seat very firmly. You may need to check the model and serial number to be sure you get the correct CPU for your old board.

If the beep is a very high pitched tone, turn off the computer. Your CPU is overheating. The thermal paste may not be spread correctly on the CPU or the heat sink isn't properly installed.

Otherwise, it's probably a memory error. This machine takes 2 GB of memory as 2 single GB memory sticks. Try booting the machine with only one DIMM installed. Try each stick individually before getting replacement memory.

I hope this helps.

Where can I get a sr1030nx AMD procesor. On the side has a no. 27493. Assembled in Malaysia


It's an AMD XP 3000+ made in a socket A configuration. It's an extremely old model, the only source for another one are sites that sell second-hand parts, like Ebay.

I have a compaq presario sr1230nx,it has the amd athlon XP pcu which I think is a socket 462. anyways Im trying to install an AutoCad program,but it says I need a CPU that is SSE2 compliant. is there...


Access http://www.MajorGeeks.com and search for "Everest Home" software.

Download and install this _free_ software.

When you run it, click the 'CPU' tab, and you'll get a full list of what "extensions", such as SSE or SSE2, that are supported by your CPU.

Browse the AMD web-site ( http://www.amd.com ) to look for an Athlon-series CPU that _does_ have the SSE2 extensions. Buy that CPU, and install it into your computer.

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)
