can you elabourate a bit. do you mean the socket that the cpu sits in or the thing that goes on top of the cpu (heatsink & fan)

NO, it cannot be replaced. so you have 2 choices, carry on as it is and hope nothing else happens to it or get a new motherboard (and cpu depending on how old ya system is).

what mobo do you have. if ya dont know download aida32 (middle one) click here from here and it will tell you what mobo you have and cpu.

post back when ya info and will try to be of more assistance.
