How do I remove the Intel Socket 775 heat sink?

I am trying to replace my cpu, but I cannot get the plastic screws to detach from the motherboard. What are the ways that I can get it off, without having to drill or cut out the screws?

    are you referring to the plastic clips that hold the fan to the CPU?

Use a minus screwdriver. The 4 plastic pins that hold the heatsink are rotatable. Rotate anti-clockwise (using screwdriver) and pull up to remove. When installing do the reverse, make sure the narrow lines (where the screwdriver tip goes) are facing outwards and rotate clockwise to tighten.

Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can kill your computer

ESD can permanently damage your laptop. Always ware ESD wrist strap when you work with internal computer components.

How notebook screws are marked


In Toshiba notebooks most screws are marked. Here are some examples:
F4 - flat-head screw 4mm long
B6 - button-head screw 6mm long
F16 - flat-head screw 16mm long
B8 - button-head screw 8mm long

When you are taking apart a laptop you'll have to deal with lots of screws. Keep everything organized.


Removing Memory Modules


Carefully spread latches on both sides of the memory slot with your fingers.


Carefully spread latches on both sides of the memory slot with your fingers.


Carefully pull the memory module from the slot by the edges.


Removing Wireless Card

There are two antenna wires connected to the wireless card.
White wire connects to the main connector on the card.
Black wire connects to the auxiliary connector on the card.

To disconnect the antenna wire from the wireless card grasp the connector with your fingers and unsnap it from the card.

Carefully spread latches on both sides of the wireless card slot, just enough to release the card.


The wireless card will pop up at 30 degrees angle.

Pull the wireless card from the slot by the edges.


Disconnecting Keyboard


Before you pull the keyboard cable from the connector on the motherboard, you'll have to open up the connector.

Before you pull the keyboard cable from the connector on the motherboard, you'll have to open up the connector.

After the connector is unlocked you can pull the cable. Be very careful with the connector. If you accidentally damage the connector, you'll have to replace the motherboard.

Removing Modem Card

The connector is located under the modem and you cannot see it until the modem is remove. After the modem is removed, disconnect the cable (on the left side).

\Usually the modem is secured to the motherboard by two screws. Remove them.

To disconnect the modem from the motherboard lift it up.


CPU came out attached to heatsink
In some cases, when you remove the heat sink, the CPU might get out attached to the heat sink. DO NOT install it back into the socket like that, separate the CPU from the heat sink first.


CPU came out attached to the heat sink because thermal paste dried out and glued the processor.

Insert a flathead screwdriver between the CPU and the heat sink surface. Carefully rotate the screwdriver until the CPU separates from the heat sink.

\Lift up the CPU and install it back into the socket on the motherboard. Now you can safely remove old thermal paste and apply a new layer of paste.


Removing and Installing CPU


The CPU is locked in the socket. Before you can remove the CPU, you'll have to unlock the socket. Use a flathead screwdriver and turn the socket screw to "Open" position.


Lift up the CPU by the edges. Be careful, there are a lot of fragile pins on the opposite side of the CPU. You should be able to install the CPU back into the socket without any force.

There is only one correct way to install the processor into the socket. Both CPU and socket are keyed. When you are installing the CPU, make sure to match pins on the processor with holes on the socket.

Before applying thermal grease on the CPU, clean the surface with alcohol.

After the CPU surface is cleaned, apply a small drop of thermal grease.

Spread thermal grease evenly and install the heat sink.


ATTENTION! If you forget to lock the CPU in the socket, the laptop will not boot. If you install the heat sink without applying thermal grease, the CPU will overheat.

My Core 2 Duo CPU Fan has got a problem recently. Would any replacement of the Original CPU Fan be harmful to the computer? If there is any such problem, please let me know. Please suggest any CPU...


Try newegg.com, tigerdirect.com,directron.com,geeks.com. You want a Core 2 Duo cpu fan oem (socket LGA 775). Should be able to get one around 10 dollars or so plus shipping. You can pay more for a bigger fan but you really would not need it. OEM will be just fine.

My old heat sink and fan have screw in attatchments and the new on has the plastic pop in and 1/4 turns. Help?


Your old heat sink and fan probably works just as as good or better than that stock Intel fan and heat sink. If your computer case does not allow access to the rear of the motherboard you are going to have to remove the motherboard to pull the back plate that was used to attach your old heat sink and fan. To install the Intel fan turn the pins until the screwdriver slot is perpendicular to the fan shroud (the tip of the arrow is furthest out), then push in any 2 opposite sides at the same time into the motherboard. You will here them click in. Repeat for the other 2 pins.

They are usually mounted on with plastic clips, sometimes with screws. Use a small screw driver to loosen the clips on all the sides at the same time so the fan can some off.

Try to shuffle the RAM or clean with soft tissue and reinsert it or check the CPU Heat Sink/Cooler.

Finding information to aid replacing cpu cooler


Yes, some do come with push pins like that instead of screws so that it is easily removed and installed also. Usually the push pin ones are cheaper. The cpu and heat sink are compatible by cpu socket type.

Upgrading the cpu and heat sink and fan


Hi,
All the factory fitted CPUs are having such heat sinks as previously u were having.
Check on the backside there will be small plastic covers where screws fit these could be removed by screw driver but u can purchase that heat sink or can use previous heatsink as well if it is working.

Pentium D problem


Hi oilian,
Be glad it did shut down. If it didn't, your new CPU could haveover heated. There are a few reasons for a CPU to over heat.
1.) There is no thermal grease or too little on the heat-sink assembly.
2.) The old thermal grease was not removed or the old thermal tape was not removed.
3.) The heat-sink assembly was not cleaned completely with alcohol before applying new thermal grease.
4.) The CPU fan is running too slowly.
5.) The heat-sink fins are possibly filled with dust build-up & the CPU fan can not cool the heat-sink assembly. Boot to the bios & go to Hardware Monitor. There you can check voltage, CPU fan speed, CPU temp & other bios monitored settings.

Good luck oilian!

Hi Jharper91,
There is no easy way to explain how to remove your Intel® Pentium® 4 processor with out some pictures. Intel does have a site showing how to install. Once you understand how to install you'll be able to remove. Try looking through this link from Intel.
http://www.intel.com/support/processors/pentium4/sb/CS-007988.htm
Newer Intel Pentium 4 processor use 4 plastic pins to hold the retention clip onto the board. To remove them you will need to lift the motherboard out of the case. Using a needle-nose plier to squeeze the plastic ends together & pop-out the plastic pins.

The north bridge can be glued onto the chipset & have
2 pins bent inwards on themselves. Bend them in and push them through. If glued, use a hair dryer to heat the cooler, thus making the glue soften. Each board can & do use different methods to hold coolers to the chipset's. You might want to keep in mind the total db of adding a bunch of coolers. It may get very noisy for you.

I hope you find this helpful.
If I can help you more just post you're question's here.
Good Luck Jharper91!
