    first, is the current mobo capable of supporting the new cpu? if so, you will need to go to compaq's website and download the latest bios patch for your model as well as the flash utility. BE VERY, VERY CAREFUL UPDATING THE BIOS!!! follow their directions to the letter - if you mess up, you will be buying a new mobo.
