remove it from the slot, on the back there should be some clamps, uses a small screwdriver and then pop that off
(heatsink) thebn just use the lever next to it to pry it of.

if you can't find the clamps, you need to remove the plastic back off of it.

It should just pull straight up and out. There may be tabs on either side that need to be released or pulled outwards slightly to release the CPU.

It seems that the heat sink it attached to the CPU by pins going through it. And it seems that the Heatsink it permidently latched in by a piece of metal.

Ok thanks you guys were right i had to use a screw driver to pry these plastic things on either side outwards inorder to pop the whole thing out.

The heatsink is stall attached to it but thats ok.
