You have to take the heatsink off, take the CPU out, and read us the information that is either on the core, or on a black sticker toward the outside of the chip. It should be 4 lines of numbers and letters.

remove the hsf and you will find most likely a black label with #'s and letter's on it find them out and then post what you found
