Compaq Presario CQ61-420E0 CPU replacement/upgrade

Hey to all!

 

Since my girlfriends cq61 died, and led blinking gives me CPU failure,  i would like to replace its CPU.

I have already taken CQ61 apart and CPU inside was AMD Sempron M120.

 

Since i am replacing it anyway i tought i would put something more powerful in.

 

What CPU-s are supported by my model?

 

I read in this thread http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Hardware-Upgrades-Replacements/Compaq-Presario-CQ61-415sa-Processor-Upg...

 

That M620 - Turion II Ultra @ 2.5GHz  is supported on some CQ61 models, will it work for me?

 

Is that best i can do?

 

 

 

Best Regards

Mix

Before you focus in on the CPU I will let you know that it is much more likely the problem is the motherboard than the CPU.

This is the best AMD processor that is compatible:

I had my questions, too. HP has posted a Manual for the CQ61-300 AMD (z) series but not for the CQ61-400 AMD series so it is the best I can do.
