Simply open/unlock the clips and pull the heatsink off. Then you will need to remove the termal compound from both on top of the CPU and from the bottom of the heatsink. Papertowel + rubbing alcohol works well. Then you will need to re-apply thermal compound before reseating the heatsink/fan.

CPU upgrade for Compaq SR1220NX Desktop Computer


Hi
The specs for this machine state that it is a motherboard with
"Socket 478 for Intel P4 Williamette and Northwood processors
Supports Intel Pentium 4 processor up to 2.8 GHz
Supports Intel Celeron processor up to 3.06 GHz (Prescott based Celeron with 533MHz FSB)"
In other words, any CPU that is not socket 478 ( a fairly old socket now) will not even fit on the board. You do not mention your current CPU so you need to compare it with the spec above to see if you can improve it. It is an old machine/motherboard, so your money might be better going towards a motherboard or system box upgrade.
Cheers

Motherboard ID Motherboard Name Compaq Evo


as long as it is a socket 478 processor which narrows it down to P4 or celeron ( P4 being better and faster ) it should be fine.
Obviously it will state what processors it can handle in the computer manual so if you find the manual it should state in there.
I dont think it will handle more then a 3ghz P4

I have a Boot Problem with my INTEL P4 3.0Ghz. 800Mhz FSB,1M L2 Cache, Socket 478 CPU


I have experienced something similar with my new Core2Duo processor and a fairly new Socket 775 processor. Troubleshooting it led me to believe the CPU simply wasn't compatible with the motherboard. Although it's a shot in the dark, I suggest that you try out some of the following: - Did you try pulling out the graphics card to see if you got it to POST then? The graphics card or the monitor may need replacing. - Did you remove the RAM? - Are you sure all cables are attached properly? - Try to take out the CPU, talk to a friend with a socket 478 motherboard and replace his CPU with your CPU. Does it work now? If yes, motherboard needs to be replaced.
