Aircraft on repos ferry from ZZZ1 called in to ZZZ maintenance prior to arrival reporting their onboard performance computer was locked up and would not even turn off. I was asked to marshal the aircraft upon arrival and right&right the onboard performance computer. I took off the onboard performance computer charger what I thought was the only part number of onboard performance computer we stocked and installed it on the aircraft (after having updated the onboard performance computer with current software). It was brought to my attention this morning (jan/tue/03) that the wrong onboard performance computer was installed. I was unaware that there were more than 1 part number of onboard performance computers. I asked a couple other mechanics if they knew there was another style onboard performance computer for a -700 and they replied 'no.' if I was aware of the multiple part numbers of onboard performance computers that we carry. I would have check mpd 5.
