Re: Removing Heatsink Cooler from Motherboard
If the pin isn't clicking home it may well be faulty and you may need to replace it. I would suggest removing the board from the case and trying to reset the pin, at least that way you can see why it is failing to catch behind the board.
If you can't get the pin to hold I guess there's really only two options, warranty or replace the pin with a bolt.
