Question about Asrock K7VM4 Motherboard
I want to know how to remove the fan and processor and also how will i know if the mother board is okey
That board used a ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) Socket that has a small lever attached to it that will rotate the CPU out of its locked-in position.
Disconnect the main power cable from the back of the computer - the one that is plugged into the wall. Make certain that the power is off to the display.
After being certain to ground yourself and remove any static electricity, detach the power connector for the fan and then carefully open the ZIF Lever.
With the lever in a fully upright position carefully grip the fan chasis and ease the chip straight up. Be aware that the chip has a number of delicate pins on its base which is how it plugs into the motherboard and if any of these are bent or moved out of alignment it can both damage the chip and make it difficult to re-install it.
If you are upgrading the CPU be aware of the following:
You will need to reconfigure the motherboard settings for the new CPU
You will want to use thermal paste when attaching the new heatsink and fan.
