Question about Computers & Internet
There are a multitude of different socket types for desktop and laptop pc's. Also there are 2 main processor manufacturers which are AMD and Intel.
If the computer you have is a desktop then take the side panel off the computer, remove the CPU fan and take out the processor. Just above the socket it should have markings telling you the socket type. If you can't see the socket type then I suggest you take the processor itself to a PC store and have them find a replacement for you.
If you have a laptop then you will have to do the same although it can be quite difficult to disassemble a laptop to get the processor.
You may be better off taking the whole laptop to the store.
