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.

Re: Installing an AMD K6-2 processsor on a Compaq laptop

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.

I don't have mother board cd of compaq amd athlon(tm) LE 1660.

If that is a Compaq Computer then you will need to go to the Compaq Website and enter your model number and operating system and you will see the list of available drivers for download. AMD only provides drivers for their products and you won't need drivers for the CPU so you won't need to go there. Your second best option, unless you put a different sound card in the computer than the one Compaq put in it, will be the website for the sound card manufacturer.
