Question about IBM ThinkPad T42 Notebook
It could just be stuck with the heatsink past underneath the assembly.
It sits on top of the processor and they can stick quite tight.
Try and ease/slide it left and right a few times rather than pull it straight off.
A shorter one probably wont do the job as well as the larger one.
The size of heatsink required to remove the heat correctly is caluclated during the design.
