I'm a noob when it comes to the technical parts of computers and laptops, but I need help fast. I got an "o.k." budget laptop last year for Christmas and need help on if a processor is compatible with my motherboard. My laptop is a Compaq CQ57 it has a C-50 processor and the motherboard's model is beyond my knowledge. What I have in mind for an upgrade is an AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition.
