Unscrew the fan first the heatsink on my computer you press the clip down on the base of the heatsink and pull it farward,the thermal paste does not hold the processor in place you will see a leaver on the right side of the CPU you move it with your finger to the right and lift up that will allow you to remove the CPU.
