Re: How to remove the cpu

Hi, You will find that the CPU doe's have a lever to remove it. But it is probably hidden under your heatsink and fan. Study the clips holding the h/s & fan down and unclip them. gently apply a bit of force to the h/s and remove it. You will now see the lever you need Take as much care as possible removing the H/S and also the CPU other wise you may damage the pins on the CPU. Regards mistyman

Removal of CPU

There are several types of CPU fan / Heatsink assymblies on the market these days, usually there is a lever, or two on either side of the fan that tension the fan and heatsink to the CPU socket. Once released the fan/heatsink should come off as a single unit. Sometimes you may need to gently " wiggle " the fan/heatsink in a rotating motion to loosen it from the CPU thermal grease.

Once the fan/heatsink is removed, the CPU slot will have a single lever on one side, this can be lifted, and the CPU should come out of the socket.

Remember to gently place the new CPU into the socket, it should only seat properly one way, so remember to note how the original CPU was seated.

Apply a very thin film of thermal grease to the top of the CPU*, and re-attach the cooling fan / heatsink unit.

*Thermal grease is quite inexpensive, and easy to apply, put a small dab in the center of the top of the CPU, and with a small flat piece of plastic such as an old credit card, smooth the grease out and spred it to the edges of the raised surface of the CPU.

I have an Intel Celeron D 2.26GHz Socket 478 256 k /FSB 533. Is it possible to replace the Pentium 4 1.6GHz in the Vectra with the Celeron. If so what steps would I take and will I have any XP COA...

You need to check with the motherboard maker. A manual would tell you and you might be able to get the info online if you search for the above model number, find the manufacturer and look up the specs. It needs to have the same socket(form factor) and support the bus speed of the new one.
Replacing a CPU is straightforward but non trivial.

Hopefully you got the Intel 775 pin processor line but the installation should be pretty straight forward.

Looking at the motherboard where the CPU would go, there is a metal lever type of locking mechanism that extends the length of the processor space. You'll want to first move it to the side, then rotate it up toward you.

This will loosen up the brace that would apply pressure to the CPU, locking it down into place. Open this door/brace up and (if a new motherboard, remove the black plastic protector inside the door) and you'll notice the pins are located on the motherboard themselves. [ Older motherboard/processors had the pins on the CPU ] If you look along the plastic edge of the where the processor would sit in the motherboard, there are little tabs protruding out toward the pins.

Now in looking at your processor, you'll notice that there are also two indentations on the edge of your processor. You'll match these indentations and tabs up so that the processor will sit nice and cozy inside (remember, you want the gold dotted side DOWN).

There will a little play in the processor itself once you set it down which is normal.

Close the door/brace and bring the locking lever down. It may require a good firm force to pivot the lever down but once you get it down far enough, move it over slightly to the side (opposite of how you removed it) and then lock it into place. (you'll notice that there are small plastic brackets that hold this lever down in place to lock it.)

Now that the CPU is locked down, its time to put some thermal paste down on it. (most CPU coolers already have the jelly on the bottoms... a grey jelly material)

Depending on how big of a cooler you have for the CPU, for the larger ones, I always do an eyeball test fit... just to make sure that I have it rotated and fitted correctly before setting it down and locking in the screws.

Don't forget to plug up the CPU cooler/fan to the motherboard CPU_FAN plug.

PC wont boot, not even to bios

Maybe the mobo is shot for u and he has his PSU shot.......Check for any burnt smells from the mobo. See if the cable from the PSU is properly connected to the mobo. Try removing all drives like graphics cards, RAMS one by one and see if it works.

Changeing a cpu is a simple process.

First step, remove the cables and open the case.
locate the cpu - heatsink

it debends on what kind of heatsink it has, simply turn the lever
or use a screwdriver to unhook the metal connector. If you don't have enought room you might need to remove the powersupply first.

handle the cpu with care, ones the heatsink is removed you can
pull up the lever next to the cpu to unlock it

now you can remove the cpu with your fingers by the edges.

place it in a safe location, and go ahead install the new cpu.
optionally apply some thermalpaste and attach the heatsink
and the power connector for the heatsink fan.

you are done.

Wont post and buzzing noise

Don't mean to butt in here but I'll bet the 4 pin_ATX 12v connector is not connected to the board. That 4 pin_ATX 12v connector give's the CPU it's power. Without is the system will not boot. Some boards will give off that weird sound you are hearing.

How to remove the cpu from mobo.

Was the heatsink screwed into the mobo or was it clipped to the plastic? If it was screwed on the processor is soldered to the mobo and cannot be removed. If its a ZIF socket then more than likely the lever has broken off and the socket is pretty useless now, time for a new mobo.
