Faulty CPU 2 b replaced,which should I buy so that it is compatible

My desktop was shutting down because of thermal event. I cleaned everything, applied new thermal paste, after that re installed windows but still it beeps when booting and shuts down all of a sudden. It shuts down even before booting (even within 5-10 seconds). I think CPU has been damaged. I want to install a new CPU. Which CPU should I buy so that it is compatible with my system Sys specifications are as under

Operating System
MS Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit SP1
CPU Intel Pentium 4 519K Prescott 90nm Technology
RAM 1.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR @ 106MHz (2.5-3-3-7)
Motherboard Intel Corporation D915GAG 65 C
Graphics SyncMaster (1400x1050@60Hz)
Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family
Hard Drives 313GB Seagate ST3320613AS ATA Device (SATA) 42 C
Optical Drives HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8483B ATA Device


thanks for all of the help.

Here is a list of supported processors for that motherboard.

I'm not sure which of them you can still find for sale. The P4 technology has long since been replaced.

Intel Desktop Board D915GAG — Supported processors

I would not be so sure that you need a new processor. They are VERY difficult to damage if you have not been overclocking. I'd look for other causes, particularly a bad job of mounting the CPU cooler.
