The CPU, or Central Processing Unit performs the calculations and logic functions of the computer. CPU's only perform the most basic of functions, such as adding the contents of a memory location to the contents of a CPU "register", or comparing the contents of one register to the contents of another register and "jump" on a specified condition such as "equal to", "greater than" or "less than". CPU's are also able to initiate transfer of large blocks of data, read or write data to/from peripheral devices, and in general, watch over system functions. Of course, this is an oversimplification of the power and function of the CPU, but it gives you an idea of what is going on. CPU's have the capacity to perform many low level functions that are enhanced when added together into an application. If done correctly, the entire process is transparent to the user and all you see is a well designed application. The heatsink and the cpu needs a fan to cool them off

Simply open the motherboard CPU socket and place the CPU carefully into the CPU socker then close the brackets that's all good luck :)

There is no such thing as a CPU Drive. If you meant "What does a CPU communicate with", then the answer is everything inside your computer.

No data is stored in the CPU. The CPU only performs arithmetic and logical operations. However, the CPU is provided with a small memory unit called cache, which rapidly feeds the CPU with data to calculate.
