Open the case and remove the heat sink. Ther will be a little slider on the side of the CPU mobo connection, flit it out and lift it up. Your CPU will pop out.

I heard you had to pry off the heatsink because it was stuck to the CPU? Will i have to do this in order to remove the cpu first?

It may be, it would be best to remove the heatsink but if you need to put too much force in don't bother - at least then you know what heatsink to use with the CPU! You can always take the CPU off without the Heatsink off first. Not too good though; always try to get it off.

Yes the heat sink will probably be stuck to the CPU, it should come off easily though. Just remove it first and then you can tackle the CPU.

the Heatsink and the CPU are pretty strong and metal - just stick a nice small screwdriver between them and lever one off the other. When you put it back on you should still put on some new Heatsink Glue just incase though.

Doesn't really matter - just one more thing to unclip!

Hey guys,

Well the problem hasn't quite gone away but the computer still operates. The other day i got some fatal error message with a blue screen. Okay now computer starts backup but now i keep getting this system error message "This system has recovered from a serious error".
I try ti erase it from the system log file but it keeps coming back. I think it has to do with this same problem i had posted. Well later on i find out that one of the pins in the connector was bent. It was bent to a point it was touching the other pin. Well i straightened it out as best as i could and put it back in. Well i start up the computer and still the same error message. Anyways i wanted to replace the SCSI cable with this other cable that i have. It's basically the same thing accept it has no terminator on the end. My question is will it still work?

That doesn't sound like a Hardware Fault - something on your Computer is making Windows think there is a serious error when it is turned off. When the box comes up - send the error reprot and look at what Microsoft have to say about it - that may help.

I don't know anything about Scuzzy wires - never had one before. I'm sure somebody will know about that though.

I don't think it will work if it doesn't have a terminator.

I did send the report but it came up with nothing. There are 2 error codes in the log report. One says "Service Control Manager" and the other says "System error". I try to erase the log but it keeps coming back.

Hmmm, If that came up with nothing I have no idea - I personally think too little amounts of people send the error reports so nobody has the chance to help anybody with their problems! It is annoying!
