What CPU can I use in HP P6126UK

This PC has no CPU as the original AMD Phenom x4 9650 was damaged. I bought an AMD II x4 920 complete with heat sink but error message appears that says it is incompatible with motherboard. Why will this new CPU not work? Can you suggest an alternative as I cannot find the 9650 anywhere.

This is the same list I used to select a new processor. The CPU I have purchased is an AMD Phenom II Quad Core AM2+ 920 and does not work on this motherboard. However, it is rated 125W, could this be why it is unsupported ?

Yes, it has to be TDP: 95W.

 

Also, the 920 is actually not supported.  If you will note that there are (3) xxx after the  9 (9xxx).  This means that it would have to be an AMD 9600 series; not 960.  If you look at the specs at the bottom of the page that I provided, you will see that it has a TDP: 95W.
