Specs: Windows 7, phenom x4 9650
I have an HP a6750y desktop with a fried motherboard. Its processor is phenom x4 9650.
Also have a Compaq CQ5210f that is working.
I would like to know if the phenom x4 9650 processor will work in the Compaq CQ5210f ?
The Compaq motherboard is:
Manufacturer's motherboard name: Pegatron M2N68-LA
HP/Compaq name: Narra6-GL6

links to both pc specs:

If I am reading the specs correctly, I think I can use the phenom X4 9650 in the Compaq, and thus upgrade that machine, but I am a novice when it comes to this and am looking for help before I rip my kids computer apart and have to buy two new ones instead of just one.

Also, I have never done this cpu swap before. What do I need to know and/or look out for?

Yes Compaq system support phenom X4 9650.
Before swapping CPU make sure u have thermal paste(cheap silicon base will do the job). Make sure there's no trace of old thermal paste on both surfaces when applying new one, use this method http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/arti...
