Keep in mind it's not always about the CPU when one wants to increase system speed. It's a combo of motherboard bus speed, memory speed & drive speed that make a system fast.

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)

Want to up grade my cpu and ram to improve speed and program use.


Question#1 is my current processor duel core or single core , how can I know?

Intel Celerons are Single Core. You can also download and run CPUID (free) from http://www.cpuid.com/ No installation needed either , just run it!

Question#2 What kind of duel core processor in combination with new ram should I install?

I dont think your computer supports dual core. I cannot be sure without you giving me the make and model of the motherboard. Besides , a 3.33ghz Celeron D is a great processor!!!!

Memory - See http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Presario%20SR2150NX you can have a max of 2gb. You have 2 slots on the motherboard so its 1 gb per slot and the board takes DDR2 PC2-5300.

Here , you can expand to your max of DDR2 PC2-5300 2gb (2x1gb) for $24 and theres free shipping too!!!
