Hello, I am trying to upgrade my son's CPU in his Compaq CQ 5210F desktop from it's original AMD Athlon X2 215 prossesor. The motherboard (M2N68-LA)
specs say it will support an AMD Phenom II X4 965. The existing AMD Athlon X2 215 prossesor is a three socket and so is the upgraded AMD Phenom II X4 965, however when installed we receive the message "this CPU is not supported shutting down". My question is, is there anyway to upgrade the CPU on this computer with a prossesor with capabilities similar to the AMD Phenom II X4 965, and if so what type? Any help given would be most appreciated.
