Microprocessor removal

Attention: When you handle ESD-sensitive devices, take precautions to avoid damage from static electricity.

  1. Review the safety precautions.
  2. Turn off the system and peripheral devices and disconnect all external cables and power cords; remove the cover. For more information, see Cover removal.
  3. Push down on the retainer clip, and at the same time, use a flat bladed screwdriver to carefully pry the metal loop from under the hook attaching the fansink to the processor.
  4. Carefully remove the other metal loop from the hook attaching the fansink to the processor. Lift up and remove the fansink.
    Note: Once you remove the heat sink from the microprocessor, you must replace it with a new device.
  5. Pull out and lift up the release lever and remove the microprocessor from the connector. Store the microprocessor in a static-protective bag for possible future use.
