    Which model Presario in particular do you have? IIRC, the Sempron series ranged from Socket A to 939, but I'm pretty sure the 3100+ was a S754 model.

    Get the model and check on Compaq's site, or post the model number here, and I can take a look to find out what series it was exactly.

    A "retail box" processor will almost always include the manual, processor, and cooling solution. An OEM processor would not. :-)

    You're looking for a processor that has been phased out by AMD since 2005/2006. I saw a few listed on Ebay, but they were used. A quick search via Froogle or something brings up a few sites listing new chips but they all wanted a premium for them.
