I want to upgrade my pc's processor from AMD Athlon IIx2 to AMD Phenom IIx4
as far as I know when you install an operating system, the hardware specs of the PC is being save in the registry
can I change my processor without formating my PC again (will it malfunction because the processor specs on the registry doesn't match with the system's registry?)

If the information you gave about your motherboard is correct, that CPU is compatible with that motherboard.
Make suitable back-ups, respect the principles of ESD, and your operating system should accept the CPU upgrade under normal circumstances.
