CPU Replacement

by staceylr83 / October 4, 2012 12:59 AM PDT

Hi, recently my CPU died, so I'm looking to replace it. Before I say what I was looking at my computer specs are:

HP Pavilion Special Edition a6745f (approx. 2 years old)
Windows Vista 64-bit
Here is a link of my old CPU (scroll down for info in link):

Here is the one I'm wondering about:

Would that one be a compatible replacement? Thanks in advance.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
