Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Look at the CPU-socket on the motherboard.
There will be "holes" in only _some_ of the corners of the grid of holes.
It is a 'ZIF' ("zero insert force") socket, meaning that if you have to "push" the CPU to get it into the socket, you are doing SOMETHING WRONG.
Look for a lever on one side of the socket.
Gently pull the lever SLIGHTLY "away" from the socket, to "unlock" it, and then rotate the lever 90 degrees.
Look at your CPU -- there will be matching pins (and omitted pins) at each corner of the grid of pins.
Match the pins with the holes, and put the CPU into the socket. Use that "lever" to lower the CPU into the socket.
Most motherboards will "auto-detect" that you have a 100 Mhz FSB ("front side bus") on your CPU, and the CPU itself will clock itself, e.g., a CPU rated at 2000 Mhz will "multiply" the FSB bus by 20 (2000 == 100 * 20) to drive the CPU at its rated speed.
