Howdy:

Did you go to AMD's site and search your processor?

If you had, you would have found out it was a Socket A aka Socket 462 processor.

If your machine is working you can download and install Belarc Adviser and it will tell you many things about your computer. You can also look in Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information to learn about it. I saw a machine with similar specs that used a slot-A AMD processor. You may also just be able to open the cover and look at the board to find the number. Sometimes Compaq would use standard boards and sometimes they were proprietary.

That is true but a socket A processor will only work in a Socket A board no mater what regardless id it is standard or proprietary. :)
